Agree, we do not always have time to read literature. But sometimes it happens that you just need to read a certain book, or the right material for a short period of time. And with the advent of modern technology, this will become much easier. And so, meet Spritz!
Spritz is a Boston-based company that promotes to the masses, and more precisely, the network, its own way to quickly read, which, as it turned out during its testing, is really successful. One of the best specialists in the field of productive reading technologies is working on the startup, which indicates the quality of the technology. But one of the main tasks of developers is to save time on reading. What does reading time consist of? Have you thought about it? The transition from word to word, turning over, movements of the head, eyes and, of course, the very speed of reading, which we will talk about later. Let us dwell on our movements.
While we read, we constantly move our eyes and change the position of the head. It does not seem to take up any reading time, however, no. And here the principle of work of Spritz is shown. Due to the fact that “words” pop up in front of you and a certain letter (RedLetter ™) is highlighted in a certain place (Optimal Recognition Point ™), you do not make any head movements. As a result, you read the text as you watch a movie. Now the company is trying to integrate its technology into some sites, social networks, reader updates, and is attracting developers to create applications for Android OS.
After reading the text above, many are interested in using Spritz. I warn you, at the moment there are no PoweredBySpritz reader applications for the Android operating system, although there is an email client in the Samsung application store that uses this new product. But I will tell you how and what to use in order to use Spritz on your device.
1. Android operating system
First of all, I advise you to use the Readsy.co website, which is designed to read everything you can using Spritz. Paste links, use the built-in editor, download text files, copy and paste the text you need. The interface is intuitive, so there should be no problems. It is worth noting one point. In order to use a reading speed of over four hundred words per minute, you need to create a Spritz account. The procedure is performed through the API.
There is such an application as Speed Reading , which is most likely made using this technology, but the developer is silent about this (the copyright is probably violated, so download from the site, just in case). The application has a very rich functionality, which you better learn from the instructions for the application itself, so as not to waste interest.
Where do you get the texts yourself, you ask. Do not copy the desired text on the page, right? In order to get a book with text on one HTML page, go to lib.ru. Copy the text of the desired book, paste and read with pleasure.
2. iOS devices
You can also use the Readsy.co website, and if you want to get the most fashionable window right on top of the website, here is the implementation instruction: First, save this page to bookmarks by giving it a name, for example, Sprizlet. We copy this code:
“Go” to bookmarks, press the “change” button. In the second field and paste this code. Save the bookmark. Now, when you want to read some news, you can simply open this bookmark while viewing the page.
In addition, there are a number of applications for apple devices that allow you to use Spritz in various ways:
ReadMe! ($ 1.99) - an ePub reader, which seemed to me not quite convenient in terms of working with literature in Russian.
Quickipedia ($ 0.99) is a very interesting application that allows you to read articles with great speed.
RapidReader ($ 0.99) is another analogue of the Readsy online application, only costs $ 3.
BibleGist (free) - an application that allows you to read the Bible using Spritz.
3. Desktop browsers
With the first paragraph, everything is clear. Readsy.co again, but you want to use a similar window, as users of iOS devices? So here. We go to this page and drag the "Spritzlet" button to the bookmarks bar in your browser. Bottom line: the Spritz window on top of the page you need.
4. Windows Phone
Alas and ah, but for devices running this OS any applications of this type are missing. But, sorry for the repetitions, use Readsy.co.
Indeed, reading with Spritz is very convenient. This technology saves time by increasing the speed of reading, plus, concentrating on the text, in order to catch the thread of the narrative, you are distracted from external irritants (chat messages, for example). Sometimes, there are inconveniences when meeting with voluminous words, but nothing can be done here (words just might not fit in the window). This is a noticeable minus, but there is a button for rewinding text. Voluminous works can be read using this technology, but sometimes difficulties occur with the definition of the speech of the hero of the work. It is not always possible to see who owns the text. Here, of course, ordinary books win. But, with a very limited time, Spritz really helps out.
Yes, the technology is quite fashionable - you don’t even need to move your eyes, but, of course, this does not negate the use of good old books with the smell of library dust, which really gives us a field of thought, fantasy and thought. Agree, nothing can replace this?
