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 3.6.7
"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!"
500 books in 6 months, life changing app! I love reading, but I never have enough time to read all I want. Blinkist makes it possible, and if I'm really curious about reading the whole book, I often get the full version on Kindle. The team does an incredible job distilling the essence of most books you can think of. They have a smart, fun, exciting way of presenting content. New books show up every day. It has become my favorite app, I catch myself coming back to it many times each day. I highly recommend. If you love books, you'll this app. Worth every penny.
I am a new user and I am very glad to have another way to be introduced to new ideas and different perspectives. As a modern prophet/sage once commented what one does not know one should be silent about, I will leave any technical criticism of this idea disseminator to those better qualified through background, reason and experience. I will just add my happy Yelp.
I would recommend this app to anyone that loves to learn new things or like delving deeper into interesting subjects. This app is easy to use and allows for you to search through topics of your choice that provide short audio and/or text to read. I love this app and I just started using it.
