Dec 1: Become a power reader⚡ with Readwise's brand new app
It's time to get back to the reading habit in 2022. And not drop your resolution five days in 😌
The Problem and The Pitch
What if you could save Twitter threads and newsletters and actually read later? Blazinggg fast 🔥
We’re all guilty of it, aren’t we?
We spot something interesting online or on social media & we ambitiously think to ourselves, “I’ll save that link and read that later”. Shock horror the link gets lost in our note pages forever… Readwise Reader is the solution to that!
You can save anything, from articles and tweets to PDFs. Then read (with powerful highlighting, search, and triage) inside of the Readwise Reader.
If you've used Instapaper or Pocket, it's like those except it's built for 2021 and beyond 🚀
1. Before Reading
🏋️♂️ Conquering content overload: Users these days have numerous sources for consuming information like ebooks, articles, PDFs, podcasts, Twitter, the list goes on.
Gathering all your content that is scattered across half a dozen apps unlocks functionality that would otherwise be nearly impossible 🤯
For example, you can perform a full-text search 🔍 across all your books, articles, notes, and highlights.
2. During Reading
🏊♂️ Getting into the flow: Super smooth highlighting ✍️ which allows you to highlight images(!!), rich-text formatting, and hyperlinks.
Threaded annotations (like in Twitter or Roam).
AI-based summarization and auto-categorization so that you never have to take your focus away from reading! 🧘
3. After Reading
🧠 Strong focus on retention: It resurfaces your highlights from time to time and auto-syncs them across your note-taking apps 🔥 And that's just the tip of the iceberg. There's powerful search, backlinking, and annotation.
Top creators like 🌟 Ali Abdaal use Readwise to read & retain everything in one place.
And this is just the start! 🪜 They're still in private beta, building an extremely thoughtful product. Don't believe me?
Here are a few top creators pouring their hearts out 😻
What are you waiting for? It’s time to get back to reading in 2022.
