What's New in Version 4.0.5
Our last release around—the debut of Blinkist’s shiny new rebrand!—had some problems, and some of you experienced crashes. We’re very sorry they interfered with your learning, so we did some serious bug squashing to make up for it. Everything should be both stable and beautiful now.
I love Blinkist!
Blinkist is an ingenious company. We all know that knowledge is power but in our day and age it's not just what you know but how quickly you can learn. Blinkist provides a means to assimilate information quickly by getting to the point and giving you the major takeaways of hundreds of incredible works. It's a major timesaver and I'm a big fan!
The so called 'blinks' are exactly that, it's like blinking through a book without 'reading' the valuable content. The coverage of the books (some of which I have read the entire book) is at best minimal. You can't shortcut a valuable book and the pricing for just reading brief summary(s) is too much. Provide value and then charge the customers.
I am rating for the purpose of the app not the functionality.
You can't lock your phone while listening
I listen to a lot of podcasts and audio books on other apps and it lets me lock my phone or exit the app and still listen to my audio but with this app you cannot do that which makes it very inconvenient.
