I’m not going to lie, the first time I downloaded the app; I immediately deleted it. I didn’t understand the concept of the app and neither the value of it. But I knew I wanted to read daily even if it was for a few minutes. So a week passed after I deleted the app and my urge to read grew. So I’m like let me try this app once more with the free trial this time. And believe me when I say this - I fell in love! This is the best decision I’ve done. It’s so convenient in time and portable. I can just click the app and choose any book I want to read within a time period that I selected earlier on. That’s also something you can change. If you’re someone who is busy or doesn’t put enough time in reading but wants to just like me — you can set your goal time. It will customize and recommend books based of your goal setting. It’s absolutely beautiful. By doing this I’m able to read in between work hours and get the summary done within 10 minutes! It’s literally a whole book summarized. So convenient, easy, quick BUT informative. I look forward in reading a new summary each day. I learn a bit more each day. Since I was able to keep that streak in reading something each day - even if i didn’t finish the summary - I decided to purchase and did the one year subscription! This way I’m able to have more selections in reading and not be limited to one daily book. I love it! I’m so grateful and blessed for this app!!

Ahead of its time!

I am truly grateful and blessed to have downloaded this app after seeing it countless times on Instagram. I am someone who strives for greatness and success, but have difficulties trying to get there like many others. I am not a fast reader and out of millions of books I don’t know what Content is more suitable for my lifestyle and goals. I want to build my intelligence, my confidence and overall become the best version of myself. There are even some books I have started in the past, but never finished.
After two days of having this app Headway. I was able to go through seven different summaries including the books, I’ve never finished and I understand every single one at a high listening speed. I am applying what I have learned so far and it has changed my life and only two days. I am now making improvements on my own life in the gym for my physical work out and at home when I sleep. I’ve been introduced to so much knowledge I would have never known about otherwise. This app is truly ahead of its time. I feel as if I’m downloading information straight into my brain. My goals and future has become much more within reach. I will take full advantage of this application and I’m so happy I invested in my future!
