Spritz text streaming app increases reading speed

Tony Bradley | March 10, 2014
Between email, Web pages, books and other texts, we each read thousands of words a day. A company called Spritz has spent the last few years in stealth mode, developing a technology to help us read even more, in less time.

I can't wait to take advantage of Spritz, but sadly I'll have to. Spritz will be pre-installed on the new Samsung Galaxy S5 and the Galaxy Gear 2 smartwatch, but as of right now it's not available any other way. Hopefully it will soon be incorporated into iOS, or at least into iOS apps.

If you want to test out Spritz for yourself, visit the Spritz website. At the upper right there is a button labeled "click to spritz," which brings up a box displaying text using Spritz technology. There is a dropdown box at the bottom right that allows you to select how fast, in words per minute, the text zooms by.

Try it out. I think you'll be amazed at how much more effectively and efficiently you can read.
