Tired of all the scrolling? Here's how you can automatically scroll through Android

Going through long text documents, web pages, e-books can be tedious, thanks to continuous scrolling. Wouldn't it be nice if there was a solution to automatically scroll the page? Well, luckily there is a way out. Thanks to a new set of accessibility features introduced in Android Nougat (7.0), the Easy Scroll app automatically scrolls the screen at regular intervals.

Using Easy Scroll, as the name suggests, fairly easy. Simply grant accessibility permission and permission to draw on other apps. And that's all. The app will now show a widget on your screen that will allow you to scroll automatically . You can set the scrolling speed, from 1/10 of a screen per second to 1/6 of a screen per second. Also, there is an option to show the app on any content that has scrolling content, or you can select the apps yourself.

Easy Scroll, since it uses the accessibility settings of Nougat, works only on devices with Android Nougat (7.0) and later versions. However, in its beta state, the app works very well on most devices. Having said that, I tried the device on my Nokia 8 running Android Oreo (8.0) and it seemed to crash. Nonetheless, the developer seems to be quite active about this app and I'm sure an update will be released soon. In the meantime, if you are on Android Nougat and are tired of scrolling continuously, be sure to try Easy Scroll.
