Amazing app, has opened me up to whole new world of books and ideas

I am so grateful for discovering this app. I often get bored reading non-fiction books but this app combats this. The key ideas are great and although only few go into depth about them. It has inspired me to go out and read more non-fiction books as well. The library is vast, in fact I am yet to discover a book that has not been covered on this app which makes it all the more amazing!

I have one piece of feedback (still giving 5 stars because this would be a luxury to have) I would really like a list of books you have gone through and a to be read list as well. I often scroll through and see many books I’d like to read and forget which ones I actually wanted to read in the first place, having a to read list would be super handy!

All I can say is, thank you very much for creating this app. It is wonderful!

I love this app it is so useful. I love learning new things on the app. The best thing is that it is completely free. I highly recommend and as the videos are short and take only a few minutes to watch. So I will watch two to three videos a day. These videos are great because you can watch them to pass time and learn new things at the same time. Overall I like this app but it would be nice if there were a few videos on other topics. However I love the app and am impressed by the fact it is free and advert free!

Dear Dev, thank you for your considered response. 5 stars for being cool people, but I’m still going holdout for another way to login.

I’d have liked to try this service, but the only way to verify my identity was with my mobile number. Why not email? Having looked through your privacy policy (curious people do that sort of thing 😀) I didn’t feel comfortable giving you my mobile (anonymously or otherwise).
Shame, looks like a cool idea. ✌️

Hi, so sorry you haven’t been able to use Uptime yet. We decided to use phone number registration as it allows a password-less flow and it's the easiest way to access the app. As mentioned, we will not text you or share your number with anyone. We only use your number to identify you. If you have any more questions or concerns about the privacy policy, please do drop us an email to and we can try to help! If you still don’t feel comfortable registering with your number, stay tuned, other registration methods will be available in the future…and we really hope you come back and try again!
