Poor content

Seems like I fell for another Instagram clickbait. Call me back when you have more than 300 books. Otherwise Wikipedia works just fine

Worst app ever, overpriced.

By Rick Sitek

Very Pleasantly Surprised

I’m one of those “I never write a review” folks. Also, for years have rejected summary / idea distillation platforms out of hand because I had seen them dumb down critical information in ways that are not productive. Lucid, IMO, is a game changer in this regard. Thoughtful graphics and focus on discrete (but very clearly connected) ideas makes it a compelling way to both learn new ideas and also decide if you want to invest precious time in a book. The psychology of focusing on discrete information blocks is well known and the app creators/ product team / devs / everyone else involved has 100% killed it. Best App Store money I’ve spent in a very long time!

Don’t want to throw your money away? Don’t get this app.

They auto charge you over $100 after the first week for a year subscription to read summaries of literally 25 books. Incredibly disappointed and now out $100, something I can’t reverse and can’t afford. The animations are fun and cute and I could see them potentially helping out in the memory process but seriously guys? It’s a clear money grab. I want my money back. I doubt that will happen but I will keep this review updated if anything changes.

Context lookup on touch not working

I highlighted a word & it didn’t allow me to lookup meaning & suddenly changed the page.

Narrowed in Concepts make for an easy read!

I love this app! I feel like I could read a book a day and not be overwhelmed by all the unnecessary words that decrease focus and concentration. It’s easier to lock on and remember the concepts of the books and not worry about all the other details.

Easy to digest!

Lucid creates such an easy learning environment with fun visuals and a straight-to-the-point approach. I absolutely love it!

Sandra Bland Was Murdered

I think it’s a bit too expensive for what it is. Also, I was highly disappointed that in Talking to Strangers by Malcolm Gladwell, they summed up Sandra Bland’s death as a suicide without any mention of the fact that it is widely known that suicide was VERY probably not the cause of death. They simplified this violent encounter between a Black woman and a White policeman in a way that ignored all the most significant facts about that case and they should be ashamed of themselves.

App is great, have some suggested features

Would love to have a note taking section in the saved area. A place to type up reflections or personal conclusions etc. to be kept with the saved cards from each book. Would like to see description of each book in the home area to make browsing and selection more streamlined instead of having to click on each book then click description. And/or integrate categories. Love this app, it’s a fabulous idea !

Favorite App

This is my new favorite app. Last favorite app was BitLife. That’s been my favorite app, since 2015. It’s now 2020. I mean business, for every one of those 5 stars I gave. I am the queen of app purging. I’ll have an idea of an app I’d like. I download 10 apps that do that thing. Through a process of elimination, I go from none to one app. Most of the time, I decide I don’t need an app for that thing, after all. Guys! This app is not like all the other Cliff Notes style apps. This app is the absolute best thing ever!!!! The visuals are super duper helpful. I’m a program director of two social service programs in Chicago. I’m giving subscriptions to this app to all of my employees. Out of my pocket. This app is game changing!
