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?

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!
