12min is an Android app that allows its users to get quickly acquainted with many bestselling nonfiction books. Available in both audio and text, their overviews represent the main ideas in a short format.
With this app, you can quickly absorb the central theses of hundreds of nonfiction books available on the platform. The list of titles grows every week. The range of diverse topics includes personal development, psychology, health, relationship, marketing, technology, sports, and many others. The content is presented as audio microbooks approximately 12 minutes long, and also as a text. These short summaries allow the readers to get the key points of the originals without spending too much time.
There is an integrated search tool to find authors or titles. It is also possible to just browse categories to discover something new. And you can get personalized recommendations by choosing topics you are interested in. Other functions include creating playlists and downloading microbooks to read or listen to them later. Besides overviews themselves, there are also a few original texts on several subjects presented in the same format.
12min is available in English, Spanish, and Portuguese. Full access to all the features requires an active subscription. However, a free trial is offered, so you can decide if this approach to reading is right for you. If not, there are several other apps for those who like to read, most notably Kindle.
