    I really like this because I do read a lot on my spare time and love psychology books but it’s not free. But the one a day does atleast offer some good content. Maby 3 would be better.
  • Love the App

    Love the app. Really do. Great summaries, and I’m learning a lot on the trial. I will probably pay a subscription when the trial ends, however I think one of my only hesitations is how the subscriptions are handled. I’m not a business guy, but many apps will do subscriptions in a lump sum, so the technique must work. I don’t have the lump sum, so I appreciate the monthly subscription. I understand it being a little more, but the monthly subscription is twice the cost of the yearly. To me that’s a bit of an annoyance. Again, content it great, app works well, love what I’m reading. Just wish the subscription options were a little closer together in terms of per-month cost. Great work overall!
  • Aweful app just tries to steal your money

    Be careful! It will steal a full year subscription silently out of you pocket after you try the app. Stay away. No way to get your money back.
  • Good luck trying to end the subscription

    All the possible books from the trial needed an upgrade, except articles you could already find online. Trying to end the trial to avoid paying the annual subscription had me going through their website, the app and iTunes. They are very efficient to start your free trial but make all they can so that you are unable to end it.
  • $80 Bucks! Super Glitchy

    Ap freezes constantly. Thought I found a replacement for Audible. Nope. Skip this one folks. You’ll just be irritated by the continued freezes! *Advise on directions to refund this or cancel any further “automatic yearly renewals”!
  • Great idea, terrible execution

    I’ve never wanted to use an app so badly. Unfortunately the app simply does not work. I started the trial and the subscription activated in my Apple ID. But the app never gave me access. Customer support was useless. Too bad...
  • Poor app, decent concept

    App constantly cuts out while on Bluetooth. “Blinks” sometimes stop and restart on their own.
  • Unacceptable for an app with a subscription service

    I still can’t believe this app hasn’t been optimized for the iPhone X. The whole purpose of having a subscription model is to keep the app update and support the developer, I personally canceled my subscription because I refuse to pay for wonky software. Will revisit once they decide to do something about the newest phone optimization. Apple gave developers months to update their apps and yet here we are. Can’t believe even free apps are optimized and not this.
  • Please fix the crash issue

    This time it crashes when I click a tag. I don’t recall any version of this app without major bugs. How hard is it to fix a few bugs in such a simple app?! We are paying a lot of money for this. Great service but the app is just very annoying.
  • Not intuitive
