Uptime: Get smarter, stand out

Learn and grow in just 5 mins


Wish you could read more books in less time, and fast-forward to the facts when watching documentaries? Uptime could help.

The app provides quick-to-digest summaries of carefully curated books, documentaries and educational courses. You’ll select topics that matter to you – such as Science & Environment, Arts & Design or Health & Fitness – then browse a personalised feed of intriguing works.

Fast-track your way to knowledge with Uptime’s five-minute hacks.

Choose, say, a book from your feed, and the main takeaways appear in sections – In a nutshell, Favorite Quote, Introduction and 3 Key Insights – so you can read, at a glance, what that title’s all about. Hit Watch to tap through the same sections in Instagram-style Stories. Or choose Listen to have them read to you – educational entertainment while we do the washing-up? Yes, please.

If you want to delve deeper, tap the link to buy the full book, documentary or course. And if you discover a hack you particularly like, share it. Then go in search of another for your next moment of down – sorry – Uptime.
