Gone are the days of cuddling up with your favourite novel and slowly immersing yourself in the beautiful prose, it’s 2014 and no one has time for that. Enter Spritz a new kind of speed reading app that could help you read 1,000 words a minute (the gif above shows 500 wpm) and most novels in well under an hour and a half.

There are already a few speed-reading apps on the market, but Spritz (which has allegedly been in “stealth mode” for three years – whatever that means) takes all of the top theories about how to enable us to read faster and crams them into one package.

According to the Huffington Post, Spritz will be launched on the Samsung Galaxy S5 handset and Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 smartwatch. However, the company plans on licensing out its technology to all kinds of software developers, ebook manufacturers and possibly wearables too.
