  • Good content. Horrible app.

    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!

    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

    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 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

    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

    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
