Ever wish you could read faster? There’s an app for that (of course). Spritz is making its big debut on Samsung devices, and it could help you read up to 1000 words per minute!
A Boston-based startup company called Spritz has spent the last three years developing a text streaming technology that could help users double their reading speed and read between 250 to 1000 words per minute. Just imagine — you’ll be the star of your book club!
Spritz App — New Program On Samsung Devices That Can Make You Smarter
We all want to be able to read faster — after all, the more you read, the smarter you get! So naturally we were thrilled to hear that there’s a new technology that could help us do just that. So how does it work?
According to Spritz, we spend as little as 20 percent of our reading time actually taking in the words on the page. That’s partially because it takes time for our eyes to move from word to word. The technology aims to fix that by eliminating “the inconvenience of scrolling, swiping, squinting and pinching to read on your devices by streaming individual words, one by one, at the user’s desired speed,” according to Spritz.
Spritz has been tested and found to help new users double their reading speed in minutes.
“When we started testing, we already knew that we were on to something but the comprehension tests surprised even us,” Dr. Maik Maurer, co-founder and CTO of Spritz, said in a statement, according to PC magazine. “Happily, our tests confirmed that spritzing increases comprehension. We’re now starting to research whether time spent spritzing will also increase a user’s traditional reading speed and comprehension, an effect reported to us by many of our testers.”
Spritz Will Debut On Samsung Devices
The Spritz app will be available exclusively on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5 smartphone and Gear 2 smartwatch. But you can also test your skills on Spritz’s website.
