Mailbird e-mail client now offers speed reading feature
PC email client Mailbird has introduced a new time-saving feature to its service. Its speed-reading option allows users to read their emails in a format that, much like other speed-reading apps, involves a technique that flashes words one at a time on the screen; this promotes faster reading than if one is moving their eyes across the page. The new tool can be activated by selecting the glasses icon at the top of any email message within Mailbird, and the rate of the words can be adjusted from 100-1,000 words per minute. Offered in three tiers, Mailbird services are available in Lite (free), Pro ($1 per month) and Business ($9 per user per year) variations.
