Read Naturally, Inc. Launches 'One Minute Reader' iPad App for Developing Readers

Read Naturally, Inc., a Saint Paul-based educational publishing company, launched an iPad app for developing and struggling readers. The app, One Minute Reader, is based on the company's award-winning home reading program and is available now in the iTunes store.

The purpose of the One Minute Reader app is to build reading fluency. The app draws its content from Read Naturally's popular One Minute Reader program, a series of leveled books and audio CDs that employ a research-proven strategy for building fluency outside of school. Since its release in 2005, One Minute Reader has been an effective solution for students who need extra reading support at home. The One Minute Reader iPad app delivers this successful program in a highly intuitive, easy-to-use format.

The free One Minute Reader app includes a system for placing readers in the appropriate level of material and an audio-supported story with corresponding activities at each level. The app also includes a bookstore that allows users to purchase additional content at all levels.

Read Naturally developed the One Minute Reader app internally over several months, collaborating with reading teachers and parents to ensure the product is effective for struggling readers. The app guides readers through the program so they can work independently. Engaging, nonfiction story topics combine with interactive features such as the ability to tap on vocabulary words for student-friendly definitions, comprehension questions delivered in a clever format, progress monitoring graphs, and more. All aspects of the One Minute Reader iPad app were designed to ensure that readers remain engaged in the act of reading and challenged enough to experience optimal growth.
