Been searching for an app feeding latest psychology research for days and I never expected to find a both free and satisfying one. Here it is. And all the content is even sorted out in different categories! That's something I've given up hope for after no less than five apps I've downloaded before Research Digest.
There are a few things to be improved, like the app is a tiny little bit slow to touch, and scrapbook doesn't work too well as a favorite list because there is not a list showing all the books you marked you'd have to slide through every each article. But these are really just trivial flaws compared to its super rich and captivating content.
Please keep up the good work!
Looking foreword to the next update!(THERE WILL BE ONE RIGHT PLEASE LET THERE BE THE NEXT UPDATE!)
Meanwhile I think I'll check out the website.

I am so pleased that Chris & Jen Gerrit turned his fantastic work into an app. I use his summaries in my classes many times a semester. Thank you so much for making this so easy!

Great tool for research, but poor font

I really like this app and how accessible and searchable the articles are. But my first reaction to the font used for the articles was “uggh”. San serif! And bold at that.

Any possibility that we can either have a choice of a serif/sans, or can you just change it to say “Times, Palatino, Georgia”?

Research has shown that serif fonts are more readable and easier on the eyes. Yes, I know they are not “hip”.
