  • Good content. Horrible app.

    By Zman771
    While the content is good, the app is horrible. For $30/month I expect a first-rate app, not something that looks like a couple of college students made it in their spare time. And a 72 hour trial? Just dumb. At least give me a month to try it. I'll stick with instaread and blinklist.
  • Great App!

    I use it all the time. Great user experience!
  • Love it!

  • Great!

    By rfilhote
    Great app and summaries. I just miss the possibility to speed up the audios. If you're planning to do, please do in 10% increases. Thanks!
  • Search and Audio player need refinement

    By Ducksfootball
    The content itself is excellent, however the delivery (e.g. Search feature and audio player) don't work / work inconsistently impacting the user experience. These are minor tweaks, so holding out hope that they roll out an update soon.
  • Phenomenal concept

    By VonDutchess867645373
    Phenomenal concept for the sponges of the world looking to truly grow and have a thirst for learning! I've used personally and professionally with my teams as well as educating vertical management.
  • Good resource

    By The mchammer locksmith
    Good resource to share reads with others. I like that it Kees me interested and doesn't make me lose interest with excess verbiage I would otherwise give up on. Only thing I don't like is that I can't highlight or save notes from my favorited reads.
  • Great app great content

    By shyblues23
    I love being able to digest all the books in detailed yet brief manner!
  • Great read!

    By Mercymi
    I like the app! It gives you the opportunity to read the summary of many good books in such a short period of time. It also gives you the key takeaways and has the option of short video clips incase you don't want to listen to the summaries. I recommend this!!!
  • App works great
