Spritz
What would you say if you could read 500 words per minute, how about 700? What if you could finish a whole novel in 90-minutes. Well, Spritz—with the power of some smart technology—wants to help you do just that.

One of my favorite sites—Art of the Title—featured the title sequence for one of my favorite games from last year: Device 6. I high recommend you check out this interview. It’s fantastic.
