Product Hunt Pick: Readsmart

Product Hunt Picks & Roundups

Today’s Product Hunt Pick: Readsmart.

Readsmart takes your Kindle highlights and turns them into a knowledge base.

You can search your Kindle highlights by text or category, add your own commentary, and combine ideas from multiple highlights into notes.


As an avid Kindle reader, I think this is a fantastic idea. I read fiction almost exclusively on my Kindle, but for the most part I still read physical books for my business reading because it’s so much easier to take notes.

This feels like the interface that Kindle has always been missing to make note-taking actually functional.


Subscriptions start at $3.99/month and there’s no free or ad-supported option. A subscription model just doesn’t feel appropriate for this product, since it’s not something I can imagine myself using daily.
