    Pros: 

    12min is an awesome reading app. It cuts the bullshit from the books and delivers to you what matters the most

    Cons: 

    None

    A daily app to keep you up to date about your readings. Awesome to avoid wasting time with chapters and subjects that doesn't matter in a particular book and focus only in the most important parts. Highly recommended.

    Pros: 

    Best way to research before buying new book, great to remind key points from what I've read, great UX/UI, audiobooks to listen while running

    Cons: 

    None

    They say you only use 3 apps on your phone and 12min is definitely one of mine.

    Since they started releasing audiobooks, I open it at least once a day

Hey PH, Before I say anything, it's a pleasure to launch a product here, where I usually find awesome stuff to help me. Because of that, we're giving a 7-day trial to everyone who signs up on 12min, instead of our usual 3-day trial, so you can have more time to enjoy the full experience of the app!! I'm here to present you the 12min app. 12min is an app with summaries of the best nonfiction books, that can be read or listened in about 12 minutes. Our primary goal is to help you to develop the reading habit and take it to the next level. That's why we offer free and unlimited reading. You can develop the reading habit, learn new things, prioritize your next books to read… And all that can be done in those useless micro-moments of the day like waiting on the bank line, being inside a bus or a train, doing the laundry. We want to help you to learn more and faster, so you can be even smarter and boost your career! On 12min you will find the best books on business, marketing, sales, leadership, etc., condensed into microbooks with their most valuable insights. After operating in Brazil for about 1 year, we're happy to announce that our app is going international, and now we also offer content in English, Spanish, and Hindi. Here are some of our cool features: - Free unlimited reading, and upgrade to make audios available; - Free audio for the featured book ("book of the day") - Download microbooks for reading and listening offline; - Send microbooks to Kindle; - See what your friends are reading; - Highlight the most important sections of the microbook. We'd love to get some feedback, and we're happy to answer questions! :)

Awesome product. I bought a lot of books listening their summaries and it's practical to listen during operational tasks.

@giovanni_salvador Thanks a lot for the comment Giovanni, that's great to hear! =D #keepReading #keepLearning
Love the personal development space. What makes 12min different than Blinkist? Thanks

@parisivy00 Thanks for the comment Mariano! =D Answering your question, the main differences between 12min and Blinkist are: 1. 12min is now GLOBAL, with content in English, Spanish, Portuguese and Hindi; 2. 12min is FOREVER FREE FOR READING and Blinkist limits their free access to 1 reading per day; 3. PRICING: We admire them and getAbstract and that they raised 17M. We’re bootstraped, which means we’ll grow slower, but with best prices to our users! =D I hope you like it! Enjoy! ;)
@matheusguerra great! Thanks, keep it up!
Great app! If you want to read more, definately its a great way to start. 🤘🏽

Cool product Matheus. Can you clarify what you get for free, and what you need to pay for? I'm finding it a little confusing.
