Bookey: The Book Summary App that Will Help You Build up Knowledge


Reading is one of the most important ways to learn new things. It is possible to learn a lot from books, but it can also be difficult and exhausting. Many people struggle with reading because they do not have time to read all the books that they want to. This makes it hard for them to increase their knowledge. Wouldn’t it be great if we could read a lot of books and retain knowledge from them?


Finally, we have an app just for that. With Bookey, your mind can get more out of the books, by reading the summary of the book that gets to the heart of what really matters.


What Is Bookey?

Bookey is an app that summarizes the key points of best-selling nonfiction books in 30-minute audio and transcripts. Every book includes a mind map that details the essence of the book so users are able to grasp the gist of the text at a glance.

There is a good chance that you won't be able to read or listen to all books or podcasts on your list right now - not even those that will benefit your career. Moreover, a lot of people these days are either busy or don't have time to read every book that catches their eye. Book summaries are an appealing idea because they can provide insight into complex books without the need for commitment.

The app contains bestselling titles in 12 categories ranging from business to personal development, and from biographies to parenting. You can even set up a 21-day challenge to grow personally with your friends.
