I like that you can adjust letter spacing, word spacing and Line spacing as well! The dyslexie font is described well in this article  "like a pair of old comfortable slippers for your eyes."

ER Browser is another excellent app with similar options and also offers color overlays for the web! http://erbrowser.com/
