What others are saying about us:

"Blinkist offers a terrific service – great ideas distilled down to their very essence. For those of us who are deeply curious about new ideas on success, happiness, innovation, progress and more, it’s a great start." - Forbes

“Even if readers just use the summaries as quick shots of knowledge rather than as book discovery avenues, this could just mean they’re enriching otherwise lost time -- while driving, exercising, or doing chores -- rather than replacing real reading with the app” - The Huffington Post

What's New in Version 3.7.0

"You know when you’re waiting in line for an ice cream and suddenly it’s your turn and you can’t decide between the 32 flavors and then some and you get all nervous and just opt for a vanilla cone with a side of regret? Daily life is full of choices and it can get hella overwhelming. Up or down? Right or left? Pokémon Go: yes, or no? Sometimes you just wish that someone would choose for you. Our newest release does just that, relieving you of one of these daily torments: the tremendous task of deciding which book-in-blinks to read from among our 1500+ titles. Introducing...the Blinkist Daily Pick! It's a curated title that we update each and every day, waiting for you in the Discovery tab. And there’s more! Have you not been reading books-in-blinks as often as you’d hoped? Sometimes a nudge in the right direction can help you pick up that habit again. If you wish, opt-in via your app settings and we’ll send you a friendly reminder about the Daily Pick to help you stay on track.

Last, but not least: Plus subscribers, hold on to your hats! We’ve unlocked our beloved audio feature for each Daily Pick, so now you can hear what all the fuss is about. Same goes for those without a subscription: open the app to read or listen to the pre-selected Blinkist Daily Pick!"

Customer Reviews

Great App! Reading so many new books.

I've learned so much so in such a short period of time being able to absorb information in bite size quantities. I've been able to read an array of books that have helped me in my career and at home. With such little time these days to read an entire book, Blinkist helped me find a happy medium to still be able to read a variety of books with limited time.

Pleasant surprise

Perhaps the most interesting and useful app that I have come across. I'd love to read, especially books and articles geared toward personal and professional growth, Improvement development. Enjoyed using it for the first time early this morning. Looking forward to using it often. What a great resource for someone who has limited time but wants valuable insights.

Love this app!

Wonderful app that adds value by reducing the time required to get the main ideas of a book. The blinks are very well written and don't feel automated. Highly recommended, especially if you don't have enough time to read complete books.
