Got some cramming to do this weekend, be it either college work or a particularly heavy-handed book club? Well, the new Spritz App can help you with that. Using the very scientific sounding Optimal Recognition Point, basically the app does what we readers do subconsciously anyway, and realigns the words on the page to a more easily digestible visual.
The app, which is currently only available on the new Galaxy S5 phone and Galaxy Gear 2 smartwatch, eases you into it by ramping up your reading level to an astonishing 250 words per minute. However, over time and once your eyes have become adjusted to this new world of fast forward reading, it’s not long before you’ll be galloping through books at 1,000 words per minute!
Fans of a relaxing holiday read by the pool need not apply, but studies have shown that the Spritz method of speed-reading has actually helped improve on the retention of the information that is being read as well, so this really is a must-have for anyone who’s got an exam tomorrow and you haven’t even got to chapter two of that book yet!
