Cool [APP]OpenSpritz for speed-reading epup with new Spritz technology

1st of all. Im not an Dev and an english speaking person. But I want to share an awesome App with the new cool speedreading technology "Spritz".
There is an GitHub Project called https://github.com/OnlyInAmerica/OpenSpritz-Android.

I've grabbed from GitHub the source an packed in an app.
So you can read EPUP with the spray idea.
The following features are included:
- Adjust the speed (WPM)
- Pause function
- forwqard backward rewind (with chapter)
- Invert mode

For opening of EPUP it is more practical to look for a file explorer out the book and then open the app. Within the app you can also open books.
Note: Long words will be displayed double-spaced.

Who wants to test the app can download the APK for Android here

Well I'd think you'd just load a Portuguese book right?

I guess there should not be any reason to use an foreign language. Should I?

You couldn't put the apk on a legitimate website?

This is awesome! Just tried it out, seems to work fairly well for an early build.

Few issues I encountered when I opened an epub:

- The WPM isn't consistent, seems to speed through a few words, then slow down, then speed up again.
- Sometimes multiple words are shown together.
- There were some meta data displayed, like font size, etc.
- Not sure if the chapter selection is working correctly

Some of this might be attributed to my epub file, I'd have to test it out with multiple files to get a better feel for it.

The only thing that is missing is syncing reading positions across devices, like through Gdrive. Once the issues above are resolved and the syncing is added, I can definitely see this being used as my main reader app!

But so far, solid start!
