Features and Benefits:

Glasp developed the mobile apps in response to demands from its rapidly growing user base of over 200 thousand people. Glasp’s online highlighter, which debuted in December 2022 as a Chrome extension (beta) for desktop users, soon found appeal with students of all stripes and academics. Learners and authors.
Overview of the Web Highlighter Glasp
CEO and co-founder Kazuki Nakayashiki had a stroke at age 20 that left him paralyzed on one side of his body; this experience inspired him to create Glasp. The chemical engineer from the University of Tokyo worried that he would lose all of his knowledge when he passed away, so he collaborated with his best buddy Kei Watanabe to create a “social learning log” system. Glasp’s goal is to level the playing field in education by bringing together people from all walks of life.
Works to Come
The following enhancements are planned for the company’s mobile apps.
- Mobile apps that combine a YouTube synopsis with ChatGPT.
- A community-based social feed that suggests thought-provoking articles.
