Whether you're on the train, bus, or subway, you'll never again have to grab a book from your bag again. Wear Reader™ lets you speed-read books straight from your wrist while you're on the go. Simply upload your favorite book to your iPhone, attach your Apple Watch, and you're ready to read!

Wear Reader has two reading modes: Speed Reading and Traditional. Speed reading flashes text rapidly on the screen one word at a time to suppress your inner vocalization and allow you to read quickly while still fully understanding the text. Missed a spot and have to go back? No problem! Use the fast-forward and rewind buttons to adjust your spot. Tap to pause the stream to take a break and see how you are doing, and tap again to resume.

Not into speed reading? Wear Reader™ now supports a traditional reading mode where you can read like you always have. Simply choose this option in settings, and use the digital crown on the right of the Apple Watch to scroll up and down the page. Try speed reading here online for free! http://wearreader.com/try.html#apple-watch

Features include:

• Display longer words for a longer amount of time, or read all words the same!
• Adjustable speed reading from 50 WPM to 1000 WPM
• Set bookmarks, select the chapter, or navigate to a specific word right from your iPhone.
• Speed reading keeps the eyes from getting tired since they stay in the same spot
• Automatically pause after every chapter, or speed read right through.
• Navigate your library with ease using the rich Cover Flow interface and search.

Wear Reader can import books from Dropbox or iCloud. Now import azw, azw3, azw4, cbc, cbr, cbz, chm, docx, fb2, htm, html, htmlz, lit, lrf, mobi, odt, pdb, pdf, pml, prc, rb, rtf, snb, tcr, txt, and txtz! NOTE: Wear Reader CANNOT import books directly from iBooks.

So glad it’s still here - This app saves my sanity in 2023!

Trombone88 on

If this app ever goes away it’s going to be a bad day for me. I use this app all the time to read on the sly with my watch. I work in a place with a ton of meetings and presentations that drone on and on. Instead of dying of boredom I can simply assume a relaxed position looking down towards my watch and read discreetly. No phone in my hands so nobody really knows that I’m doing it. I’ve been using this app since its early android war days and switched to Apple Watch as soon as a version of this app was available on iOS. You have to be patient with this app, it’s a little out of date and the formatting of books tends to be a little persnickety. Generally it will take most normally formatted EPUB books. When you sync books to the watch do them one at a time and keep both apps open for the best chance of success. Obviously it works best with smaller file sizes so don’t try any books with images or interactive content. I’ve read probably 50+ books with this app and counting. Please keep it going!

“readable content”

I couldn’t upload any books, no matter the file format. the idea is cool but this needs bugs to be worked out

Transfer is not working.

Nothing else to review, I’m sorry to say.

Just doesn’t work

nagheem on

I just get an error message when I try to upload books. And the help address just bounces back. Ugh.

Perfect! Have found no other app like it

jefedaagno on

So far, this app seems to work exactly as intended! It’s possible there could be a bit of a tech learning curve, as you need to understand what formats can be imported, and need to figure out how to get text to display in the way you want.

Doesn’t work

Bblaque69 on

I’ve tried several book formats that are listed as compatible, but every time I get the error message “Error importing, please try again later” I emailed the developer and got maeler daemon (bad email). And I cannot find support anywhere online

Doesn’t work

The books never sync to your phone so don’t waste your time or money. I have requested a refund.

Doesn’t work

Won’t load on my watch and wasted $2


Jecca1213 on

I had this app loaded onto my series one watch and it worked and loaded fine, read plenty of books on it. I upgraded my watch to a series se and my watch wont load the app now. Need help in figuring out why. I have tried everything i can thing of to try to fix it.

Didn’t work at all

Learnoholic on

I had high hopes for this app, the idea seemed really neat. I have an Apple Watch series 4 and I loaded both the iPhone and watch application for this app.. The iPhone app seemed functional in the sense where I could upload ebooks, but when I tried syncing it to my Apple Watch it just remained on a black screen with a loading icon that went nowhere. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling it. I looked carefully at the file types that the app developer instructed using and used only those. Nothing worked. Wasted $1.99. Not a lot but still a waste.
