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!!

This app has changed my life tremendously. Most of my screen-time on my phone is from this app. I have told all my friends about it. I read more than 93% of Headway readers w/ a goal of 38min/day, but i find myself listening to Headway w a headphone in while I’m cooking, doing laundry, cleaning, during flights and on long walks too. I have the motivational “quote of the day” widget on the home page of my phone that is the first thing i see on my phone and really sets my intention for that day! Next, I want to start taking notes on the books i am reading ! I find myself reading a lot of the books twice to pick up anything i missed or ingrain it into my mind with spaced repetition. I also find doing anything else on my phone like watching silly vids so boring compared to learning something new on here! I find myself being an overall better person. You are making our lives a lot better in these overstimulating times :)!! My favorite topics are technology, psychology, and self-improvement. I am an extremely autodidactic person so this to me is the equivalent of somebody getting their masters, except I prefer having a wide-range of knowledge. Thanks again!!

Covers a lot in a short time

I paid for Headway some time ago but never got around to really check it out. I am a good listener, but when it comes to reading a book, I get distracted, I stop and lose my way in the book until I eventually lose the whole essence of the story.
One morning while being alone with my thoughts, I decided to catch up on my literature, so I browsed their library until I found an interesting topic to read. Found out, I could actually just listened. I decided to listen, Wow! The book was so precise, exciting, informative and quick about 15mins. I was truly amazed as to how they summarized the book with all the important points, I received the whole message right away. At the end of the book they even had pointers to remember, so you can further meditate on essence of what you just read or listened. I loved it, I read three books just before I write this review, I think I am about to listen another after writing this review, it is that good. If you have an interest in reading and learning new things or you just like to listen like myself you need to have this app. You will not regret it. Thanks Headway for create this wonderful app.
