What's New in Version 4.5.3
Our developers squashed a few bugs for this newest version and carefully polished the app from the inside out, so now its true colors can shine through! Most changes happened below the surface, but don't worry: we're building new features to share with you, soon!
I have read a couple of the books that I have read blinks of. I have found that important concepts are missing in the blinks from the book. For instance, the book 7 habits of highly successful people completely skipped the circle of influence concept, a major premise of the book. Similarly rich dad poor dad did not mention the different ways parents of differing financial statuses raise and fiscally train their children, a central premise of the book.
I am disappointed and will not renew my membership despite enjoying the blinks. I know I am missing the central premises of the books summarized. Hopefully I notice a change in the next 12 months.
A feature I would enjoy but that does not influence my rating would be the option to expand an interesting concept. Sometimes I want to know more, and the summary is too brief.
Overall I think Blinkist is a great concept, and will probably improve over time, if it does, I will maintain my subscription! For now I have another 11 months to explore summaries, that to date, don’t quite hit the mark
