Now that websites and apps with integrated Spritz technology are rolling out, here are some of our favorites. We’ll update this page on a regular basis. If you’re a developer and would like to have your work included here, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to have your app or website reviewed by our team for inclusion on the list.
Read the Entire Internet with Spritz – Download the Spritzlet
Are you ready to spritz the whole internet from the comfort of your desktop browser? A bookmarklet is a piece of software that you use in conjunction with your browser to interact with webpages. Spritz created the Spritzlet to help people spritz all of the websites that they visit. Click here to get the Spritzlet.
Applications – iOS
First off – Beware! There are several apps on the Apple App Store that look like Spritz (but aren’t). The only way to know for sure is by whether or not they use the ‘Powered by Spritz’ moniker in their redicle. If it doesn’t say ‘Powered By Spritz’, it’s not using our technology! We’re currently working with Apple to remove all of these copycats (or convert them to using our technology – it’s free for them to use for goodness sakes) from the App Store. In the meantime, here are some apps that we’ve reviewed, tested and liked:
The Huffington Post (Free) Spritz is now included by default with the latest version of the Huffington Post. To use it look for the pulldown grabber underneath the top green bar on any story to reveal the redicle and spritz your selected story.
ReadMe! ($1.99) is an E-Pub reader with Spritz. With ReadMe! you can enjoy e-pub format books from Project Gutenberg (45,000 books), Manybooks (29,000 titles), Feedbooks, OpenLibrary (1M+ books) and the Internet Archive (2.5M+ titles). That should keep you busy for awhile!
Note: You cannot purchase titles from iBooks or Kindle and read them with ReadMe! – 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.
Quickipedia – Spritz Wikipedia (the whole darn thing!) ($0.99) – A Spritz reader for Wikipedia.
Rapid Reader ($2.99) Read all of your Pocket, Readability and InstaPaper articles that you’ve saved for later with Spritz!
Sparker ($0.99) – SparkNotes (http://www.sparknotes.com) are condensed versions of some of your favorite literature meant to aid you in studying the material after you’ve read it. Now you can spritz all of your SparkNotes on iOS!
BibleGist ($0.99) – Interested in spritzing the Bible? This is the iOS app for you!
Applications – Android
ReadMe! for Android ($1.99) is an E-Pub reader with Spritz. With ReadMe! you can enjoy e-pub format books from Project Gutenberg (45,000 books), Manybooks (29,000 titles), Feedbooks, OpenLibrary (1M+ books) and the Internet Archive (2.5M+ titles). That should keep you busy for awhile!
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.
SpeedRead with Spritz ($0.99) works with any app that has “text to speech” technology. When you’re ready to start speed reading, simply hit the text to speech button, and you’re off! Read ANY book or article through apps like Pocket, Google Play Books and Moon+.

SpritzMail (Free) – We also created an email reader for the S5. Look for it in the Samsung App Store that ships with all Samsung phones & tablets.

The Old Reader is an RSS news reader in the style of Google Reader.
Readsy is a swiss-army knife website for Spritz. Cut and paste text, pull from a URL or upload a PDF file – Readsy can do it all for you!
