Content overload, conquered.

Our read-it-later apps should improve over time. Instead, they worsen. Why? Because we save more stuff than we have time to deal with.

We fell in love with Superhuman’s fun, game-like triage for clearing our email inboxes of clutter. So we’ve built the same for reading. Weed your digital garden with delight.

Readwise has completely redesigned the read-it-later app. It’s gorgeous and blazingly fast. In many ways, it’s the Superhuman of reading — you won’t want to read anywhere else.

I spend my entire day reading, researching, & writing and Readwise is the reading tool I’ve been waiting for. The perfect complement to my writing workflow. Absolute game changer.

The Reader is another home run from the Readwise team. Having sampled all the reader apps, it's refreshing to finally find the one that fits into my knowledge workflow!

The Readwise reading app is the first read-it-later app that enables a true workflow for serious readers. As an ex-Pocket / Instapaper power user, it's hard to imagine ever going back.

I've searched far and wide for the perfect reading app. Even though it’s still in beta, Reader has already replaced my previous read-it-later app. (And I always think twice about switching!)

In addition to building an incredible reading experience, the Readwise team is constantly iterating on user feedback and delivering the fastest product updates I have ever seen.

Machine + human powered insights.

Not everything you save deserves to be read beginning to end. But not everything deserves to be reduced to a summary either.

We’ve woven insights from both machines and humans into the product to help you focus on what matters.

Search page Search page

Blazingly fast, full-text search.

If we took the time to read something, we should be able to find it again. Instead, we end up googling the entire internet to find something in our own library that we read last week.

We built blazingly fast, full-text search enabling powerful queries based on author, date, title, length, and more.

Find whatever you’re looking for in milliseconds. Even if you only remember a single word.

Powerful highlighting for power readers.

Annotation should be the killer feature of digital reading. Instead, notes & highlights in other reading apps are neglected, second class citizens.

We believe that annotations are the key to getting more out of what you read. So we’ve developed highlighting as a first class feature. Highlight images, tables, rich text, and more. On any device.

Having tried every read-it-later app out there, I cried tears of joy once I got my hands on Reader. It's the smoothest experience to turn highlights into insights. Plus, I can finally highlight images!

Readwise is the reading, highlighting, archiving tool I've been long for: the Superhuman of reading. I was a top 1% Pocket user for many years and switched instantly.

Reader is the first reading app that helps you process information rather than hoard it. The keyboard nav and minimalist interface lead you into a deep flow state. A must for any knowledge worker!

I used to dump links into Pocket, but I never went back. Reader changes that. Now I feel on top of my reading. Plus the pace of execution of the Readwise team is insane.

Reader makes it easy to manage all the content coming at me. I'm no longer overwhelmed. Now I feel like I actually have enough time to read everything I want to.

Edwin Wee

Readwise is one of my favorite products of the last 5 years. Reader takes it to the next level. I no longer have to duct-tape together 7 different tools. Readwise just leapfrogged the status quo.

Frequently asked questions

We’re not limiting access as some invite-only strategy. The app is simply not yet ready for self-serve onboarding. But it's getting there rapidly and we're letting in friendly beta testers as quickly as we can!

If you're an existing subscriber, you’ll be among the first to gain access to the public beta once it's launched. If you want earlier access, use the form below to sign up for the private beta.

Yes! We already have working iOS and Android apps as well as a local-first web app. The entire experience is cross-platform meaning all data is continuously synced between all your devices.

When we officially launch, we’ll likely adjust pricing to more accurately reflect the various product bundles available at that time. However, rest assured that we won’t increase the price on your existing subscription if you have one.

Great question! We wrote a whole 5,000 word essay explaining our rationale:
