See what the happy users have to say about Helperbird.

Helperbird is a very useful and smartly designed tool that will most definitely make the browsing life of any user suffering from from dyslexia or is even remotely visually impaired a lot easier. It’s very easy to use, has the ability to synchronize settings on multiple devices, and is very efficient thanks to a useful set of straightforward customization options.

It's the best app for dyslexia I've ever seen! I liked the variety of features and the flexibility it gives, unfortunately I realised for me it was not needed, but I'm glad to see there is such a helpful thing.

Huge fan of the zoom feature.
It trumps the native zoom in your browser since the zoom level you set actually stays with you no matter what page you go to, which is very helpful and meshes well with the other features the app offers.
