Ratings and Reviews
Incredible Asset of an App. Can’t Wait for More Books to Develop on Here!
This might be an Audible killer. I love Audible, but the kinds of books I mainly read is self growth & development in many phases of life. Headway is allowing me to form a library of key messages and reminders from books that I don’t have spend hours upon hours of time just to finish a good read. Realistically we don’t have the time to finish a whole book. We don’t have to Headway every book of course, but there are more opportunities for shorter focused reads than entire books. I’m personally enjoying this for my active go go life. I can only hope that writers and the makers of headway accumulate as many books as possible on this app to provide shorter and focused reads for all.
Disappointed in myself for Trying the app
The app popped up in a social media add, I had been slacking in my reading recently so I decided to get a free trial. I get how trials work and why they set them up to auto bill after the trial, I accept that. I have never been so mad at myself for not canceling a free trial on time, and I’ve done it a few times with other apps I really didn’t want to pay for. If you are planning to ‘Listen’ to the book summaries, the robotic auto- read narration is so god awful I wished myself deaf. It does a horrible job at communicating the intent. I’m not sure if the summaries were written that poorly or the auto-read technology is that bad, lack of punctuation, pause, tone and human inflection often leave you confused at what you heard that you can’t even pay attention. I even tried listening to one of the books on focus and paying better attention, it didn’t help. The cards and summaries seemed to get the main points of books across I was familiar with, but I think you would have been better off reading a free summary online. The ‘cards’ and repetition features don’t seem like they would be helpful to most people or really add much value to make the App worth even risking a free trial.
Developer Response ,
Hello! We are sorry to hear you think this way but thank you for the feedback. We work on updating the narration voice with a human one and hope to have it all done soon. If you have any other suggestions on how to make the service better, please let us know via email@example.com. Best, Headway Team
Good concept, poor execution
I saw Facebook ads for Headway in the form of these 28 Day Challenges and I was very intrigued. I’m always down for a good challenge, especially one in the self growth department. I downloaded the app and was all excited that it was going to create my OWN personalized challenge tailored to my interests. Wow! Well, when you make it to the home page, your personal plan vanishes. Gone, never to be seen or accessed again. That was very disappointing but I was still willing to give it a try. The audio recordings are awful. I’m a VO artist and I actually wondered if these summaries were recorded by humans. The cadence is off, it sounds hollow, there are no gaps between sentences. I could barely comprehend. And before I could cancel (because I wanted to see if all the recordings were that bad or just a few) I get charged $80 for 6 months. Not worth the money and I haven’t used it in months. Like I said, excellent concept, but the technical execution (the vanishing of your plan and the audio recordings) leaves much to be improved.
