nugget’s new app allows people with little time to discover the essence in tons of books in just a few quotes.
nugget has launched its informative new iOS and Android app that allows entrepreneurs, CEOs, and working professionals with very little time on their hands to discover new actionable business and personal development books in a matter of moments.
The idea arose when Founder and CEO Ovi Negrean – also self-titled “Chief nugget”- started collecting ideas and quotes from the business books he read to help him remember the most relevant content. Negrean put the best 30 nuggets from Peter Thiel’s book Zero to One on a slideshare, which happened to be featured on the Slideshare homepage for a time. After receiving thousands of views and lots of interest, Negrean decided to leave his successful career as a country manager of a software company and pursue nugget full-time.
Unlike its competitors, nugget is built for speed. Busy users can find an insight, useful quote and the book it came from in a few seconds. Similar apps on the market only allow users to read book summaries, which are neither quick nor particularly memorable.
“I like to think of nugget as Instagram meets Goodreads Quotes with a touch of Tinder. nugget has a dual purpose: firstly helping users find the books that really appeal to them, and secondly letting them come back and remember the most actionable and inspirational parts of the books they love,” said Negrean. “We hand pick all our quotes to ensure that each one is insightful and gives the reader a real feel for the book.”
Readers use a tinder-like swipe system to browse through the nuggets, which comes with two search modes: Search by book, in which readers see the best 100 nuggets of a book, and Surprise Me! (Random Mode) where users can browse through random nuggets from all the books. If a book is to the user’s taste, they may follow a link to Amazon to download a Kindle version, or order a physical copy.
As nugget will be release before being in the app store, a beta invite is available upon request.
