Meet Headway Media

Headway Media is a part of a big Headway family.

Headway is the app created by readers for readers to provide every person on Earth with an easy way to learn and get knowledge.

In Headway, we cherish the idea of life-long learning and constant self-growth. Our mission is to provide every person on Earth with an easy way to learn and get knowledge from the world’s best books. Being one of the biggest apps in the world of EdTech, we felt like we have even more to offer our readers. 

That’s why we created the Headway media!  Now you can dive into articles on the most exciting topics written by our talented writers’ team. Now let us tell you why the Headway app is your perfect match!

Why is Headway the best solution for you?

15 minutes is all it takes to read a book summary on the Headway app. Being reading nerds, our team does its best to find the most groundbreaking nonfiction titles that will help you grow and evolve.

Almost 3 million people have already chosen Headway and joined our community. Inside the app, you will also find audio versions of every book, daily inspirational insights, the Spaced Repetition feature for memorizing, widgets, and much more!

Helping others become better and smarter is our primary goal, and we go towards it, steadily and firmly.

Authenticity and uniqueness

At Headway, every piece of content is original. The team picks the most outstanding books, and our talented writers turn them into 15-minute reads. No critical information is excluded from summaries! Only the best insights and minimum time to read them. What’s more? Our groundbreaking illustrator creates all book covers! Take a minute to look into all the metaphors inside the book jackets. It’s worth it! 

On top of that, there are editor-picked collections. We know that it can be a little overwhelming to see so many books and decide where to start. That’s why collections are great helpers. You can take up a reading challenge or dive into the topic of stress relief and many others. This is a great way to begin your journey with Headway!

One more outstanding feature of Headway is the customization of recommendations. After you fill the quiz, you get access to your account that processes all the information. Based on it, you get your very own book recommendations in the Today for you section. 

Read & listen anywhere

Not only is there a massive collection of nonfiction book summaries, but there are also audio versions to every 15-min read! Whether you have a break at work or you don’t want to waste your time on the road, it is a perfect option to learn and evolve any second given. 

What’s more? With Headway, you don’t always need to have an Internet connection. You can download any summary or audio and read or listen to it anytime, anywhere. That’s what we call limitless access to knowledge. 

Dive into the best insights

Not only are our writers the magicians of turning a book into 15-minute summaries, but they are also pros at highlighting key ideas and turning them into insights! There is no chance you miss them as we’ve created the most comfortable navigation through summaries so that you never miss important thoughts and words from the author. 

But that’s not all! Every day you get the portion of the most relatable Daily Insights inside the app. We know how important it is sometimes to share what inspires you with others. And it is possible with Headway! You can share Daily Insights on your Instagram stories and give others a glimpse of your source of motivation. 

Memorize it!

One of the features that we are most proud of is Spaced Repetition. It is a proven learning technique that is based on flashcards and aims to help with memorizing. How does it work? It’s simple! While reading a summary, you just need to select a word or an insight you’d like to memorize, and voilà — it turns into the flashcard in the Spaced Repetition section. Once you’ve learned certain information, the flashcard will be saved in your history. Don’t forget to check and revise it. This feature is also perfect for readers who speak English as a second language. You can add the dictionaries you need to your flashcards and improve your vocabulary.

Celebrate your progress

In the Me section, you will find your reading achievements. Check out how well you are doing compared to other Headway users, set timing goals of how much do you want to read per day, and, of course, check your current streak! Don’t worry; you will get reminders about how much time left to finish your daily reading session, so you will never lose your score. That’s an excellent idea for the intellectual competition between your friends, family, and colleagues. 

Widgets all the way

Yes, that’s correct. Now inspiration is always in your pocket and speaks to you every time you unlock your phone. Our team picks the best quotes and insights for Headway widgets to keep you motivated every second. And what can we say? Our users love this new feature!

Worldwide recognized app

Apple has already recognized Headway in categories like App Of The Day and New App We Love in more than 100 countries. Headway’s biggest markets are the USA, the UK, New Zealand, Canada, and almost 3 million users already use the app! Not bad for the app that appeared only in 2019, ha?
