Spritz: you heard it here first

I’m not a techie. I mean, I can disconnect and reconnect most things; I can reprogram all the digital things in my life when they misbehave. I get by on social media, I blog {although probably could do with a site update} and am pretty useful if things are a little bit broken.

But this blew me away when I read about it this morningIf you haven’t heard of them yet, you will. From their website: Spritz’s mission is to change the way people read and make communication faster, easier, and more effective.

I love to hold a physical book when I’m reading for relaxation. I love the smell of a book, the feel of a book, the pure escapism I feel reading a book. Perhaps this is because I spend so many of my waking hours using devices – I’m on my laptop, iPad or iPhone constantly. So true relaxation for me {the holiday kind} means reading something not on a screen. A book thick with the promise of another world, a glossy magazine.

Imagine what this application will do for studying though? For the ability to get through the 809 unread emails in your inbox {yep, that’s me}.

Click through to their website and see how fast you can go {you can read in English, German, Spanish, French and Russian so far}. I was so surprised to read at 600wpm in a very short timeframe. There is science behind the ability to comprehend more the faster you read too. Hey, I’ll take anything I can get.

Ah-mazing! I want this app. Now.

{Yep, I know I sound like a total techie nerd saying that but I do. Really.}

    Mom loves the physical book as well. Nothing like turning a page. Yet the app would help those who study
