“Read more books” shouldn’t be just a forgotten new years’ resolution

Reading Time is the reading companion app for iPhone and iPad. It lets you clock your reading sessions and tells you time left to complete a book. What would you do if you knew a book can be finished in about 90 minutes?

Smarter way to finish more books

Let your reading activity inform and motivate you

Decide which book you’ll finish next and add it to the app

Scan the books' barcode or use a search field to retrieve info from Google Books. Or just enter everything yourself.

Start clock, go read, and stop it when you’ve had enough

No session is too short, and every session counts. Soon you'll be sneaking in reading time everywhere, even at that 3-stop commute.

See time left until it's finished. Less than 4h?! Done by Friday!

Books come in different sizes and complexities. People do too. Your predictions are made only for you and for that particular book.

App Store reviews

🇬🇧 Fantastic book tracker! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

“I’ve just started trying to read more often again after a long break, and this app is amazing. I don’t have a set number of books I’m aiming for, but seeing progress and features like telling me how much longer I have left are very motivating!

Being able to add 12 books for free is a fair way to implement a trial period before needing to buy the complete app unlock, which is a once off purchase.

Well designed and implemented, if you’re looking for a brilliant app to help you start or restart reading and tracking your progress will help, then this is absolutely worth it!”

🇺🇸 Helpful and Informative ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

“I often get distracted when I’m reading, but this helps me to stay focused because I know the timer is going. The stats it tracks are also pretty interesting.”

🇨🇦 Love this app but.. ⭐️⭐️

“Really loved this app used it for every single reading session. Unfortunately they have a limit of how many books you can read with an outrageous fee attached.”

🇮🇹 Motivante ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

“Sarò strana io, ma quest’app mi aiuta molto bella lettura, rendendomi più motivata. Mi piace molto poter vedere quanto tempo passo sul libro e la possibilità di vedere (approssimativamente) quante ore di lettura mi mancano. Molto comoda la possibilità di scannerizzare il libro per aggiungerlo più facilmente.”

🇷🇴 I love it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

“It simply does what is supposed to do.”

Available for iPhone and iPad. Runs on Apple Silicon Macs, too.
