A CogSci Apps invention™

For your cognitive productivity

To do great work, you need not only to read information, but to apply it later when it is pertinent to your focus.  Hook maintains your context so you can

create expertly,

learn deeply,

solve problems effectively, and

share your knowledge.

Hook does not replace your favorite apps; it empowers them!  How? By enabling you to contextually reference and access their knowledge-rich content.

This innovative and indispensable app is inspired by cognitive science. Hook addresses the “meta-access” problem described  by our co-founder in his first book,  Cognitive Productivity: Using Knowledge to Become Profoundly Effective.

Don’t just “consume” and forget information.

Do great work.

Apply knowledge.
