Speed Reading

A collection of apps and resources to empower you to develop smarter and faster reading habits. *F = Free *F/C = Free & Commercial versions *C = Commercial version only

Spritz (?)

Android - Apple
The time consuming part of reading lies mainly in the actual eye movements from word to word and sentence to sentence. In addition, traditional reading simply takes up a lot of physical space. Spritz solves both of these problems. First, your eyes do not have to move from word to word or around the page that you’re reading. In fact, there’s no longer a page – with Spritz you only need 13 total characters to show all of your content. Fast streaming of text is easier and more comfortable for the reader, especially when reading areas become smaller.
