Review: Rooster Reader App Motivates Non-readers and Philistines

No one has time to read anymore. At least, that’s what the team behind Rooster is hoping. The iOS app, created by a team of writers and technologists, is geared toward people who are too busy browsing their social networks to read a 500-page novel. To make powering through a book seem less daunting, each one is broken up into installments. Whereas chapters would range between a few pages to dozens, each installment is time-based–15 minutes a piece.

We tested out the $4.99 app for a few weeks to see if technology can really get someone to read more. Check out the full review below.
