Great *supplement* to Audible

I listen to audible doing chores and driving. This app allows me to review books I've already read and am currently reading to remember key facts. For example I'm using audible for Thinking Fast and Slow, it's 20 hours long, yeeesh right? So even though the book has taken me 2 months to get through, I can use Headway to remember earlier chapters and main concepts so I cement the information. I don't mind the audio summary of books I haven't read but I find it's much more useful to use flashcards on books I am and have read already to review and remember concepts. It's really helped and I'm happy to pay the subscription for these review sessions. I love this app.

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.

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 Best, Headway Team

Needs work

I am not a book reader what SO EVER. So when I came across this (ig ad I believe) I thought why not try it. Will save me time in having to sit down and read an entire book. I get impatient what can I say. Things you guys can work on: the robotic voice when you do listen mode makes my head spin. Please improve by adding voice choices or just an alternative to that CREEPY robotic voice. AND Too many notifications!!!!!!! I’m swear almost every waking hour it was sending notifications to finish the book, finish your chapter. OK I get it!!! And forget using this app if you’d battery is less than 30%. My battery was draining so quickly and the app was glitching, not scrolling and getting stuck, couldn’t click on bookmarks either to save. Also the pricing model is confusing, if I would try to exit a free trial page another one would pop up and offer a lesser price. It was showing the pricing in too many ways.. weekly, monthly and yearly. Needs some refinement.
