Ever wish you could absorb knowledge at lightning speed, “The Matrix”-style? While technology isn’t quite there yet, this book summary app does make it easier to read more in less time. In fact, you could read 10 books in the time it takes you to read one. It’s called 12min and it can help you expand your horizons no matter how busy your schedule.
True to its name, the 12min app condenses important ideas and interesting topics from top nonfiction books into comprehensive 12-minute “micro books.” With a premium subscription, you’ll get access to 30 new titles each month to read anywhere, anytime, with or without an internet connection. All you have to do is find 12 spare minutes in your day – on the subway, in the car, in line at the grocery store, etc.
If you have a title in mind, you can search for it in the extensive library. Don’t see what you’re looking for? Send a simple request to the 12min experts and they’ll add it to the library. Once you find the micro book you like, you can read or listen to it in audio form – with or without Wi-Fi.
People really seem to love it, if the App Store reviews are any indication. Out of 847 reviews, it earned a 4.7-star average. And out of more than 17,500 reviews on the Google Play store, it earned the same thing.
Right now, you can get a premium lifetime subscription to the 12min book summary app for just $39.
