Among many apps that similarly sumerize books and ideas, this one (by far) offers the most with a free account. Paid is not much, but what I really like about it is the lifetime option. There was a time when a subscription option would have been scoffed at. I miss those simpler times.

I love this app because it is probably one of the only summary apps that let's you change playback speed. However, I find that not all of the summaries are high quality. Sometimes the "summary" is just an intro to the book and after listening I feel like I haven't learned anything. Also, it would be great if there was a feature to show how long each summary is.

The app is really helpful for your daily life as it provides audiobook version of the books to listen on the go, video version if you're interested in the visuals and the summaries of the books so that you can get the gist of the book in a few minutes. I was lucky to have found the app while the lifetime access offer was there and believe me the full access is really worth it. I had some problems with the app so I contacted the developer and there was a quick reply and my problem was fixed.
