Speed Read

optimalWe all want to read more, right? Wouldn’t it help if you could read faster? If you’re wondering why it feels like it takes you so long to read a single page in a book, it’s because 80% of the Time You Spend Reading, You’re Just Moving Your Eyes. A new app called Spritz is looking to change that. Their goal is to eliminate the movement time by focusing your eyes in a singe place or spot, the entire time you are reading. The other plus, touted by heavy.com, is that the app emphasizes ‘Optimal Recognition Points‘, shown in the image to the left.

Test your ability to read 250, 350 and 500 words per minute with the images below. Check out Spritz here.
