"Story Chaser" Reinvents Word Games
Greek startup aims to win over mobile word game fans and English learners with addictive game app in which actual stories get a concepts-first makeover.
ATHENS, July 14, 2015 /CNW/ - Released today around the world in both iOS and Android, Story Chaser is a free storybook app that helps children and adults learn how to speed-read, a favorite tool for leaders such as Abraham Lincoln, Franklin D. Roosevelt and JFK, as well as for elite managers around the world.

Joining the game, children and their parents find their score in word recognition, pattern ability and reading comprehension and get fun practicing English and discerning what's important in a speedy world.
How do people learn and play?
Tap on randomly appearing story words, animated illustrations, then answer the multiple choice questions and discover how much you have learnt in a very short time.
Too much info to miss out?
Every day, we receive a staggering 105,000 words or 23 words per second. Through mobile phones, the Internet, electronic mail, television, radio, newspapers and books, people are famously having too much information in their heads. How exciting it would be to get trained to absorb as much as possible! And all that, through child's play!
Can genius be nurtured through smartphone apps?
Recent research has discovered that the human brain can interpret images that the eye sees in just 13 milliseconds. "The fact that you can do that at these high speeds indicates that what vision does, is find concepts," Mary Potter, an MIT professor of Brain and Cognitive sciences, was recently quoted in a study. That was the basis of designing Story Chaser. Publisto found that if they intensely motivate their users in finding meaning, they usually do. And they designed the game to best train kids and adults to discern meaning fast, consistently and accurately.
