Instaread is an iOS app that lets busy people get key insights from the most sought-after nonfiction books in 15 minutes or less. We hire professional writers and journalists to extract insights and takeaways and present them in easy-to-digest written and audio formats. Users pay $7.99 per month and they can access audio summaries of full books. As of today, through Findaway, Instaread users can purchase the full length audiobook title within the app. This is a huge competitive advantage over Audible, which doesn’t sell content directly in on their iPhone or iPad app.
“The demand from users for more content – Instareads and full books – is off the charts. The option to purchase audiobooks has been one of the most requested features from our users and we couldn’t be more excited to bring it to life.”, said Rahul Chitrapu, CEO of Instaread.
Our goal is to ensure that every brand that partners with Findaway can offer their users a complete catalog, with all their favorite titles. We are excited to partner with Instaread, whose consumers are already listening to some of the best audio content available. Now their listeners will have access to an extensive catalog of bestselling audiobooks,” said Ralph Lazaro, CDO of Findaway.
