1. Download Google Play Books app from the App Store. 2. Use your Gmail credentials to login in. 3. Start enjoying ebooks and audiobooks.
Google Play Books app is a great option to try for everyone who is a dedicated user of Google services or has just switched from an Android-powered tablet or smartphone.
After launching audiobooks in the Google Play Store in January 2018, Google’s iOS reading application is now an all-in-one tool for digesting different kinds of digital content: ebooks, audiobooks, textbooks, or comic books.
The book and audiobook catalog of Google Play Store is not as massive as Amazon & Audible, but it’s larger than iBooks. A significant benefit is that you can buy audiobooks one by one – there is no need to buy the subscription.
If before you were using Google Play Books on Android, download the iOS app to your iPad and iPhone, sign in with your Google or Gmail credentials, and all your previous content should begin to sync.
Audiobooks are synced as well. You can start listening to an audiobook in a browser on your laptop, and continue from the last location in your Play Books app on your iPad. I’ve tested it on a free audiobook from Google Play Store, and it works beautifully.
Good news for those who love listening to audiobooks in their car is that Google Play Books app lets you control audiobooks directly via CarPlay.
This 10000mAh smartphone-size power bank comes with USB-C port, LED display with a battery capacity, three built-in cables, and a foldable AC plug. You can plug the power bank directly to the wall socket for fast charging.

Manage Your Day-to-Day: Build Your Routine, Find Your Focus, and Sharpen Your Creative Mind
by 99U & Jocelyn K. Glei
The world we work in today is not the world of Michelangelo, of Marie Curie, of Ernest Hemingway, or even of Paul Rand. It is a new world, empowered and entranced by the rapid-fire introduction of new technologies—a world where our metaphysical front door is always open, where anyone can whisper in our ear, where a “room of one’s own” no longer means you’re all alone.
Creative minds are exceedingly sensitive to the buzz and whir of the world around them, and we now have to contend with a constant stream of chirps, pings, and alerts at all hours of the day. As these urgent demands tug us this way and that, it becomes increasingly difficult to find a centered space for creativity.
Taking stock of this challenging new landscape, 99U’s Manage Your Day-to-Day assembles insights around four key skill sets you must master to succeed: building a rock-solid daily routine, taming your tools (before they tame you), finding focus in a distracted world, and sharpening your creative mind.
Dedicating a chapter to each of these focus areas, we invited a group of seasoned thought leaders and creatives—Seth Godin, Stefan Sagmeister, Tony Schwartz, Gretchen Rubin, Dan Ariely, Linda Stone, Steven Pressfield, and others—to share their expertise. Our goal was to come at the problems and struggles of this new world of work from as many angles as possible.
Because we each have a unique set of strengths, weaknesses, and sensitivities, it is impossible to prescribe a single approach that will work for everyone. The right solution for you will always be personal—an idiosyncratic combination of strategies based on your own work demands, habits, and preferences.
The most technologically efficient machine that man has ever invented is the book.
