Skimcast: Read Less. ______ More.

Not enough time to read everything? Are you easily bored? Skimcast produces document summaries between 1-99% of the original document length. You decide how long.

Skimcast also automatically lists the key themes in each document. Just click on a theme, and it’s highlighted everywhere it appears in the document.

Just click the share button in your favorite application to produce a summary of whatever is on your screen -- you can share with Skimcast from your browser, PDF reader or photo gallery. And you can also take your own photos of book pages and have Skimcast give you summaries.

** All images used in the application and in screen shots have been labeled for reuse.

Super helpful!


This app is great - super helpful & saves me time. Some news articles can be too lengthy, but this helps. I like that the skimmed content is highlighted. I also like that I can trim the article to just the skim!

Love the skim


Good experience perfect for understanding news articles before reading the entire thing.

A real time saver


This is a great app for skimming long articles and even books. It's like having Cliff Notes on demand!
