E-reader and website developers have all toyed with ways to make reading on screens easier. It was a question Nick Lum asked himself and he wondered what it would be like if the text wasn’t just black on white, but in color instead. Then he tried it out.

Soon thousands were trying out his new app, and word among the ADHD and dyslexia communities began to spread — people who had struggled previously with reading found success with the app.

The concept is simple: The gradient coloring of text makes it easier for the eyes to move from line to line, making reading more efficient and faster (pictured above).

You can download the app for free!
