Introducing Hardbound
Nathan Bashaw

First of all — good luck, I can imagine you’ll get quite a few users (I just downloaded the app too).

And at the same time I sent it straight to my “Junk” folder — where I keep apps I want to give a second chance, but ultimately destined for deletion.

Here’s why. What do you think is the most important qualities of a book? I believe they are: 1. Significant amount of information and 2. Non-intrusive, uninterrupted experience, which allows reader to immerse into content, instead of focusing on interaction. (That’s the reason why I love Medium, btw)

Your app is devoid of these two. It is a different kind of platform, for different kind of content, so it is strange that you position it as a replacement for books.

Like what you read? Give Sergey Sobolev a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
