Erudite is a reading speed tracker, a book organizer and a study motivator based on tracking your average reading speed. It combines popular time management technique involving sprints and short breaks and simply only asks which page you're on in between. Rest is pure math. The app works as follows: add a book and the amount of pages it has to the app. To further improve the accuracy you can add the number of blanks or other ways useless pages, that you are not intending to spend time reading. Then decide the intervals you would like to spend reading. A good set is 25 minutes reading, five minute break for four times and then a longer break, but these are completely up to you. After that you are good to go. Just hit READ and start reading. Try to keep your head in the book, as the idea of intervals are to keep you well focused for short periods at the time. After every sprint the app asks you the page you are on. Type the number and vóila, you have already pretty accurate estimate that when you are done with the book. Erudite saves your reading speed from every single sprint, you ever read with the app and combines them to a one general reading speed average. Now after one book this is not too accurate, as you may be reading an alphabet book or the Gutenberg Bible (which two has quite different amount of text per page). But just after few books it gets so accurate, that you will be amazed! You can literally know by an hour how long it takes to finnish thousands of pages of text. The app also adapts to new books as you go, so that your estimates will be adjusted accordingly. To get the best estimation, spend one sprint on every book you have on a reading project before you start the actual reading. Features: - Know when a single book or a mountain of books are finished, if you spend x hours a day reading, or set the amount of hours you want to spend with the books per day and know when they are done. - Keep track of your books and arrange them to projects (books, that you have to read for an particular exam or essay that is due at certain date, for example). You can duplicate books, if you want to include them to the project multiple times. - Use the motivating effect of the sprints and breaks: you will be more focused and your reading speed is improved. According to research, the fastest you read, the more you understand.
