Editors’ Notes

Who has time to read these days? We do! That’s thanks to Blinkist’s brilliant summaries of top nonfiction books. Not only are the articles packed with insight into business, culture, and self-improvement, they’re designed with busy schedules in mind. Seamless switching between text and narration is super-useful on the go, and finding topics couldn’t be simpler.

So. It seems that, just like everyone else that was trusting enough to believe you can still get something for free, I as well, was reminded how inaccurate that naivety so often is. I did so this time using BLINKEST's app, in a matter of moments. You guys represent the philosophy of empowerment through information, yet offer none. Thanks for summarizing the fact that your app is a complete & total waste of time, unless of course, you, as someone interested in a free app, is willing to drop some coin. So to summarize, if you've got money to throw away, to ha ve things summarized for you, either hire a personal data, or systems analyst, or, if you don't have that kind of money, like myself, I'd strongly recommend that you get a readers digest subscription. Needless to say, investing with these cons is unadvisable at best. Hears an idea BLINKEST, start offering up a dozen free articles, once a week, to non-paying members. Who knows? You may even get yourself a summarized good review that wasn't the only one clearly written by yourself. I'd say one of your employees, but let's keep things on the level. The fact that my current qualm is your complete misrepresentation in the non-existent free service you're advertising here. Other than that Bravo! Excellent app. I'd give it 43 stars if that was possible... out of 1000 obviously.

Developer Response

Hi there,
I am so sorry that you feel this way. We do offer a free plan, where you can read/listen to one pre selected book in blinks per day. My apologies if you find this not helpful enough. You are always welcome to contact us via support@blinkist.com in case you have any suggestions or ideas. All the best, Blinkist team

Collecting nuggets of wisdom

pkcrume

As a professor I read a lot of books and articles. Everything that I read usually provides one to three important points. I love reading because I can collect nuggets of wisdom and understanding in one domain of knowledge. However, these days I don’t have time to read books in a wide range of subjects because of the time required.

I’ve been looking for an app that distills the major points in a short amount of time. Instaread is too basic and provides almost no context through relevant examples. I’ve been impressed with Blinkist because it provides enough context, and distills the main nuggets of wisdom in the book. There are also a sufficient number of titles of related topics that I can develop a deep understanding of content within a short time. I also know that if I want to understand the topic deeper I can get the whole book. I tried the free version for a week and reviewed about 20 books already. I’m planning to get the year long subscription. I am looking forward to learning a lot of things this year!
