Over 3,000 apps have been released for the Apple Watch (there’s even a web browser) and countless apps have been updated to support the smartwatch. That includes Glose, which just released an update today.
The update adds a cluster of new features. Glose says they added a new night-reading mode, better formatting, and new Tinder-inspired gestures for adding books to your reading list, but the big news today is the new support for the Apple Watch.
Apple Watch owners can now catch up on what their friends are reading in Glose, nd receive notifications as soon as someone they know starts reading a new ebook. They’re also going to receive free book quotes and “be inspired at every important moment of the day”.
And last but not least, Glose also added a speed reading option. The changelog says that you can speed your books word by word on Apple Watch,. That sounds like Glose implemented some kind of RSVP technique (Spritz uses similar tech), but I’m waiting for an Apple Watch owner to test it for me and confirm.
Speaking of speed reading, Instapaper recently added the option. I don’t think they offer it on the Apple Watch, though, just their apps for iPhone and iPad. Instead, Instapaper added a TTS option which worked through the iWatch.
Glose is free in iTunes.
