The human brain has the capacity to take in a lot of information at rapid speeds, and the Spdr app is a clever way to game our learned limitations and better harness that cognitive horsepower. The app turns reading into an ultra-rapid series of single-word flashcards, ripping through verbiage at up to 1,000 words per minute without users suffering in terms of comprehension.
One of the biggest hindrances to reading as quickly as we're capable of is that we often tend to read according to the voice in our head. More often than not, sentences and paragraphs are laid out to encourage that style of reading, which makes it difficult to put our inner monologues aside and simply absorb the text at face value. By isolating words from their on-page formatting, the Spdr app drastically increases users' ability to take in information.
