Read Wikipedia in any of over 250 languages faster than you ever thought possible, powered by Spritz!
Using Spritz, Quickipedia will rapidly flash one word at a time at any of over 40 different speeds. This eliminates the need for your eyes to scan the text in order to read efficiently. Spritz provides a reticle at the ideal position in a word to allow your mind to comprehend each word despite seeing it for only a fraction of a second. Read up to 1000 words per minute while maintaining or improving your current comprehension. The average person reads normally at about 250 words per minute, but with Rapid, you will very soon double or triple that speed.

What's New in Version 1.0.2
Spritz Wikipedia in any of over 250 languages!
Serves its purpose and does it well!
Before stumbling upon this app, I had initially set out for another app of a similar kind--in an effort to improve my reading speed. The reasons for wanting to increase the speed in which I read was to be able to fit my reading into the 15-minute intervals of free time that lay like breadcrumbs throughout my busy day! This app allows me to kill those two birds with one phone... and it does it well. What better way to improve upon your reading than to utilize the various content of Wikipedia? The only thing I would suggest is to provide a "night mode" feature. If such an option does exist, I cannot claim to have found it, yet...
I love Wikipedia, so this is convenient as I don't have to have another Wikipedia app. The interface is GORGEOUS. The multiple language option is what really wins me over, though, since I am trying to read a foreign language faster. This is definitely a useful app you will find yourself using often. HOWEVER, I can't seem to be able to access any Russian articles besides their titles. Hopefully that will be fixed soon though :)
My eyes are very much able to trap the information at a much quick rate that left to right reading. Keeping focus on the red letter is as difficult as it seems to be.
I wish, however, I could share the pages in Spritz version so other could at least try it out or see how it works. It seems to only share the original wiki version (am I wrong on this?).
