'Spritzing' One Word at a Time !

take it for a test !
Spritz Reinvents Reading on Mobile Devices, One Word at a Time
PRNewswire: 2.23.2014

Reading is inherently time consuming because your eyes have to move from word 2 word and line 2 line. Spritz streams text 1 word at a time, without forcing your eyes to spend time moving around the page. It enhances readability even more by using horizontal lines and hash marks to direct your eyes to the red letter in each word, so you can focus on the content that interests you.

Spritz enables the brain to focus on each word, promoting faster reading speeds and higher information retention rates.

Spritz technology currently supports English, Spanish, French, German, Russian and Korean, with more languages on the way. With multiple reading speeds to match a user's comfort level ranging from 100 to 1000 words per minute, "spritzing" is easy to learn for all ages. Users typically become accustomed to reading in this new format within a few minutes of their first spritz. Available with the release of the Samsung Galaxy S5 and Gear 2 this Spring.  READ MORE !
