Hoopla Aggregated Reviews
9/10 times, Hoopla will remember my spot but I bookmark just Incase.
I love Hoopla. I hate that I’m only allow 6 books. I do love that they have just about every new book that I like. For those who are not familiar with Hoopla , they also offer music, tv show, ebooks and movies.
I found the biggest drawback to Hoopla is being limited to a certain number of checkouts. Yes, you can get instant access to books that would be on a waiting list through Overdrive, but my library has Hoopla checkouts stuck at 6 total each month.
Hoopla does not do chapters. Overdrive has chapters, if your library happens to offer both (but Overdrive has limited copies of books, so you may find yourself needing to get on waitlists).
With hoopla I’ve learned to set a bookmark every time I start listening, otherwise it can be tough to find your place again if you accidentally tap in the wrong place.
AFAIK Hoopla files are drm protected hence Smart Audiobook player will not be able to read them.

As a web agency we never could and never will be able to escape the urge of building things.
Among million other things we played with an idea of text-based games and the last piece that was missing was the story itself. So via in-house outreach platform we found two established writers that believed in the project and agreed to participate.
Shout out to Richard Abbott who wrote Fraud on Thetis and Eva Pohler who sent us a huge draft we are still reading through.
GRIN launcher is born.
It is an outreach platform that we use to establish connections with editorial teams.
They say samples of published articles look good but pricing looks even better
At some point we realised that list building, fetching contact details & outreach tech work just as well for b2b lead generation
Once, we fell in love with ecommerce, because of short feedback cycles on marketing & development efforts.
Today we ship into production inhouse SaaS project - AVOKADO - the web app for learning languages with flash cards.
The year after we built it we realised how long is the road map ahead & what resources we'd need to promote it and decided to put it on hold.
One day as we ship GRIN tech v3.0 into production we'll distrupt the language learning market with Avokado.
