Nothing beats reading a book but have you ever abandoned one after a few pages? Instead, learn or review the key ideas of bestsellers in minutes.

The key ideas are curated from Youtube, TED talks, blogs and podcasts. Think of them as condensed ebooks / microbooks, audiobooks and video adaptations of books.


The content is not hosted by us or bundled with the app. The app streams and loads video, audio, and text directly from the publicly-available original sources. Even the book covers are direct links to Amazon.

For a limited time, we're offering free lifetime access to all newly registered users. Sign up now and share the app with your friends before the offer is over.

StoryShots™ is for you if you:

* want to "try" a book before buying it
* get frustrated with books that are packed with fillers
* want to learn the key lessons of your growing stack of must-read books
* want to be efficient and learn on the go
* want to improve your English

The non-fiction book categories are business, entrepreneurship, management, leadership, self-help, productivity, time management, psychology, health, fitness, nutrition, money, investing, economics, marketing, sales, history, philosophy, biography, science, mindfulness, happiness, travelling, communication skills, dating, and relationships.
