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

We hope you’ll enjoy the new features! Write to us email@example.com if you have any questions about the update.
Great idea. Poorly built
I love this app when it works. It's a great way to "test drive" a book or refresh your memory of a book you've read in the past.
Not many but some of the narrators have a thick accent or are monotone making it challenging to follow.
Biggest issue is that about 35% of the time you'll have to re-download your entire library because it will simply wipe it out. This is quite annoying especially since it often takes almost the same amount of time to download a Blinkist book as it does to listen it to. Occasionally it's taken much much longer, even with great wifi connection.
If they ever work the bugs out it'll be great but it hasn't happened yet.
Recommend it to everyone
I've recommended this app to all my friends and business associates. It's perfect for me: I have very little time to read all the great books out there. This app takes care of that. Simple as that.
Great app but after an update, lost my entire library!!!!
This is a great app. My brother recommended it to me and I paid the full year subscription after trying it out and I'm very happy with it.
BUT AFTER AN UPDATE FROM APP STORE, ALL MY ~50 SAVED BOOKS IN THE LIBRARY WERE GONE!!!! I HAVE TO SPEND ALL THE TIME AGAIN TO FIND THEM!!! I WANT MY MONEY BACK. IT WASN'T CHEAP!!!!
