What's New in Version 4.0.1

Big news: today, we’re launching a brand new Blinkist! All of the things you love about Blinkist are intact, but you’ll notice some new features and a bright, sparkling new look. We focused on helping you find more of what you love, explore topics you didn’t know you were into, changing the audio experience to fit how you like to listen, and making the whole app a little more human. Here are the major changes:

+ Autoplay: now it takes just one tap to play your whole library, hands free!
+ “For you:” Personalized recommendations based on your reading history
+ Curated reading lists from thought leaders and Blinkist staff
+ New sorting tools so you can finally get your library organized the way you like it

Two quick notes: As iOS10 is here, we’re dropping iOS8 support. Even if your device is on the older side, you can still update to iOS9 and things should run as planned. You’ll also notice that the activities screen is missing for this update, but it’ll be back soon. We hope you like the new us!

Best kept secret in continuing learning

This is a game changer for people that really want to stay educated and informed and continuing to learn new and creative ideas. I read or listened to over 350 books in 12 weeks. Should be standard learning for companies and any entrepreneur or business owner who wants to get ahead.

The interface got even better with their most recent update on the iOS10. It's cleaner, easier to read. You can't go wrong with this program, absolutely the best learning platform out there that allow you to read so many more books. They have the most effective and insightful summaries.

Blinklist App - Best App Ever..Feeling Amused (Blessed)

This is by far one of the best apps I have ever seen in my life. I am about to start my own business on Jan 2017 and I feel like God led me to this link. Because it is by far the best gift I've ever found for my phone.

Anyhow just want to take the time to thank all the amazing individuals that took the time to create the app and most of all ..I'd love to thank every author that took their precious time to write these amazing lessons in life.

This is exactly what America is Missing. Therefore it is time to follow our Creators way and seek his all mighty glory. Why? Because he will guide us and help us find wisdom through chosen people that create apps and books that help cultivate the world to become better place in life.

Therefore, Again thank you all to the programmers of this app and the authors of these books. Much love and respect to all involved in creating one of the most amazing application ever. This is what I call credible information esp in today's era. Wow

ADHD Friendly

If you have ADHD this may be for you! It's just the right amount of 'hold' on my attention span. Upgrade to Pro, it's worth it! I listen to Blinkist when I get ready, in the car, cleaning, etc. and feel great about finishing something. I've finished over 30 Blinks in the last couple months and have a list of more I can't wait to start. Thank you Blinkist! I never would've be able to read all the books I've listened to. Also, the Blinkist Team is Fabulous! They have giveaways, daily blinks sent via email and a great app. and
