Introducing Short - the reading list for busy people.

We’re happy to announce the release of the universal app “Short” for iOS. Version 1.0 is now available in the App Store and can be used on your iPhone and iPad! We worked very hard on it and we think it is so much fun!

Short is the reading app for busy people. It offers only the shortest articles measured on reading time. Five and ten minute filters help you find your articles that best fit the time that you choose to spend reading. It's easy that simple!

We want to thank our beta testers who helped us in testing the app and improving it with all their feedback.

We will continue working on the app and to further improve it. In the future we want to add more channels and collect feedback from our users to make our product even better. If you have any feedback, send us an email at hello at shortapp dot co.
