ReadMe!, the first Spritz e-book reader for iOS launches
With ReadMe! you can enjoy e-pub format books from Project Gutenberg (45,000 books), Manybooks (29,000 titles), Feedbooks (lots), OpenLibrary (1M+ books) and the Internet Archive (2.5M+ titles). That should keep you busy for awhile! You can find the app here.
Note: You cannot purchase titles from iBooks or Kindle and read them with this app – they both, unfortunately, use their own proprietary formats for books. Do us a favor and send them a suggestion to integrate Spritz into their apps on Twitter @ibooks and @amazonkindle. And, while you’re at it, we’d love it if you would like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter also!

The First Web/RSS News Reader with Spritz Debuts
The Old Reader allows you to read all of your favorite news with Spritz! Simply sign up for an account (free), add your favorite RSS feeds and then turn on Spritz in your Settings. Once you’ve created your accounts, you’ll be carving through your news like a knife through warm butter.
Reading is inherently time consuming because your eyes have to move from word to word and line to line. Traditional reading also consumes huge amounts of physical space on a page or screen, which limits reading effectiveness on small displays. Scrolling, pinching, and resizing a reading area doesn’t fix the problem and only frustrates people. Now, with compact text streaming from Spritz, content can be streamed one word at a time, without forcing your eyes to spend time moving around the page. Spritz makes streaming your content easy and more comfortable, especially on small displays. Our “Redicle” technology enhances readability even more by using horizontal lines and hash marks to direct your eyes to the red letter in each word, so you can focus on the content that interests you. Best of all, Spritz’s patent-pending technology can integrate into photos, maps, videos, and websites to promote more effective communication.
With these tools in hand, developers can implement their own powerful Spritz interfaces for their software and track user interaction with their content.
