small selection, hit or miss summaries, no support

the description says hundreds of books but i only see about 30-40

i signed up for the trial and it says i have full access but i still only see 30-40

i emailed support days ago to ask if i’m missing something and they haven’t replied

of the summaries i can view, they are very hit or miss in their quality ranging from decent to high school book report-like quality with errors and that sound like the summarizer only read the first chapter and then just makes general and vague statements to fill out the rest of the summary

a particularly frustrating part is when they state something like “tony robbins then lays out the 9 myths of investing” but the summary doesn’t tell me what they are, or “the author describes strategies to determine what desires are behind our habits” but doesn’t tell me what the strategies are, i’m supposed to be reading a summary not an ad for the book

i was excited to try the app and would happily pay the subscription fee if the summaries were better quality and the selection was larger, but as of now, i’m going to look for other book summary apps

This is my new process. One book in the morning and one at night. I am burning through information at a rate I have always dreamed, but never had time to do. I love this app. I am about to make it standard issue for all of my employees. Yeah, back to reading while I wait for my food order.

Terribly written summaries

I read a couple of “books” on this app and the grammar and wording are terrible, at best. In many cases, I had to read and reread paragraphs to try to decipher what the writer was trying to say. I think it would be in this company’s best interest to hire an editor who is a native English speaker (that is, if English speaking people are going to be your target market). I’m glad I’m still in my free trial - I won’t be paying for this app.
