Life these days is hectic and that makes learning new things pretty tough. And getting access to the world’s smartest people—and the knowledge and advice they can share—is even tougher. What if there was an app that solved both of these problems simultaneously; and app that broke learning into small chunks that you could easily fit into your schedule? What if that app gave you access to supremely knowledgable people; experts in topics ranging from the realm of personal wellbeing to business success? That app exists. It’s called Audvisor—and it’s awesome.
The basic premise behind Audvisor is this: get access to thousands of insights from hundreds of experts, all in under 3 minutes. The app itself is sleek and that’s important: there are a lot of audio-related apps that have crappy interfaces and it makes them unusable. Audvisor is the opposite: it’s simple, straightforward and usable. That’s a good thing because given it’s premise (quick access to useful audio tidbits) because it has to be dead simple to deliver on what it promises, which it does brilliantly.

There’s a menu button in the bottom right (which is great because it’s closer to the thumbs than a menu button way up on the top of the screen) which gives you access to the various topics within the apps. Current topics include:
- Advance My Career
- Be A Great Leader
- Become A Better Person
- Build Professional Relationships
- Capitalize On Social Media
- Find A Great Job
- Grow As An Entrepreneur
- Grow My Business
- Live Well
- Manage Effectively
- Market Effectively
- Maximize Sales
- Serve My Customers
An app like this really lives or dies by the quality of the content—if all it has to offer if fluff a user will uninstall it FAST. Naturally, being a tech writer, I decided to test the content in a category with the potential to be fluffy/cheesy: Become A Better Person. I’m happy to report I found the insights—and the presenters—to be high-quality and truly useful.
There are a few things that really make this app special: when you open the app you can get started immediately because there’s no registration. I love that (big breathe of fresh air). I also love that—no matter where you are in the app—you can ...
