Readwise helps you get the most out of what you read by making it fun & easy to revisit your highlights from all your favorite reading platforms in one place.
Quickly synchronize your highlights from Kindle, Apple Books, Instapaper, Pocket, Medium, Goodreads, and even paper books. Then start building a daily review habit using the app and daily email. By reviewing your highlights every day, you'll retain dramatically more and you'll finally stop forgetting all the details from books you just finished!
“Readwise is my favorite new service this year. Save highlights from Kindle, Instapaper, and now tweets... one of the best long-term personal learning tools I’ve come across.” — Caleb Hicks
“Besides my Kindle, Readwise has been the most influential tech for improving my reading process.” — Blake Reichmann
“If you use Kindle or Instapaper or just enjoy keeping and reading highlights, please sign up to Readwise. It will become one of your cherished services.” — Christopher Galtenberg
ACTUALLY USE YOUR HIGHLIGHTS
Highlighting is great, but why bother if you're never going to see any of your highlights again? Readwise makes it easy to quickly liberate all your highlights into one place, ensuring that you'll actually see and use them, including highlights from:
• Amazon Kindle
• Apple iBooks
• Physical Books (using OCR)
• Manual Input
• CSV Upload
STOP FORGETTING WHAT YOU READ
How often do you finish a book, only to forget the key ideas two weeks later? We don't remember things by just reading them once.
Readwise solves this problem using scientifically proven learning techniques called Spaced Repetition and Active Recall. Readwise resurfaces the right highlights at the right times using a daily email and an app. Readwise even makes it possible to convert your best highlights into flashcards for added retention.
TAG, NOTE, SEARCH, AND ORGANIZE
With your highlights all in one place, Readwise enables you to organize and connect these ideas in new ways. Use search to find a highlight instantly; use tag to organize highlights within your library; use notes to add your own annotations.
HIGHLIGHT PAPER BOOKS
Readwise also makes it possible to take highlights from your physical books and papers using your phone’s camera. Just snap a pic, highlight with your finger, and have your favorite highlights saved forever.

Please add a dark mode, especially on an iPad the white screen is hard on the eyes. Dark mode would be amazing!

It’s an indispensable tool for my business and personal growth
Apr 03, 2021
I finished my Readwise trial a few days ago and I have to say that I really like the app. I like the myriad of options it has for import and export, including an integration with Notion, an app that I SWEAR by in every sense of the word. I love how the cards look when you export a highlight. It has the color of the book cover create the background and the font and theme choices are gorgeous. Also, I like how it has a ton of books already built in so you can get the most popular ideas from it.That being said, the price is steep. $4.99/month for the lite isn’t the worst thing in the world since that is what Pocket charges but you can’t get the integrations with Evernote and Notion without getting Readwise Full, which is $8.99/month when billed monthly and approx. $7.99/month when billed annually. That is nearly $100/year. Notion doesn’t even cost that amount for a year and you can create entire wikis and databases from it to the point where you can delete most of your typical apps. I understand that devs need to make money to continue building and I do think Readwise is worthy of costing something, but $100/year is WAY too much for an app like this. I think that subscription models can only go so far before people jump ship. If you want to have a subscription, be reasonable. Also, if you’re going to try to get people to “save” by getting the annual instead of the monthly, the annual price (billed monthly) should not be only a dollar difference between the monthly plan. There should be a big enough of a difference between the two that gives people a real incentive to opt for the annual.

I have been really surprised by how much I appreciate this app and look forward to the daily reviews. It’s like my own private time machine into my own thoughts and interests.
