What's New in Version 4.4.4
They say that less is more, but sometimes...more is just more. In this spirit: our newest release features more helpful features to personalize your audio experience. New: set your preferences so that audio books-in-blinks will download as soon as you add them to your library. Also new: enable mobile data downloads in your settings, too (you're set by default to download only when you're connected to wifi).
Service is great!
Had an issue with the initially where the audio would randomly stop playing, it was user error. This app is amazing.
Love this app
Live by the old adage learn something new every day by listening to your daily blinks.
Great app. It helps one to get the main takeaway in a book every day. It's a great knowledge building app. I strongly recommend it. Dr Egie
