Spritz: Read One Word at a Time, And You’ll End up Reading Faster

by Hazel Chua

Who knew reading one word at a time could help you read at a faster rate? That’s what you’ll be able to do with the Spritz app. On average, a person reads 220 words a minute. With Spritz, you can double that number or at least increase it by a considerable amount.

The app essentially flashes one word at a time on the screen, just long enough for you to process and read it before moving on to the next word. The app’s developer even claims that it can help some folks read up to a thousand words in sixty seconds! You can find more information on Spritz on their website, and you can even try to practice reading text at up to 600wpm.

However, for obvious reasons, you won’t be able to do this with paperback books (imagine how wasteful it’s going to be if publishers printed a mere word on each page).
