Re: A mobile app for readers
Hi Chris, thank you for the reply! Yes, I'm here for discussion
I haven't published my app to the Apple App Store yet, but it is available in Google Play for Android users, under name "Readult
Here is the app link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... ta.readult
Since I read many non-fiction books every year, I noticed that I really have trouble remember things that I've read before, which makes me regret the time I spent for reading.
By doing a bit of studying on the topic, I figured that the main reason why readers forget things fast is the lack of rehearsal. And since I like paper books - keeping track of notes for them is not an easy thing to do.
My application lets you make important notes quickly (it utilises OCR to scan text quickly from paper books, for example) and keep them on your phone, grouped by book title.
Then, while I'm travelling to the office - I spend 10-20 minutes every day to read the notes on the phone, which kinda makes my brain remember things better.
So, in a way, it is a simple note-taking app, but targeted specifically for book readers, and I'm here to collect responses from other readers on how they keep their notes, and if an app like mine can be helpful for them as well.
Looking forward for further discussion!
