Customer Reviews

Seriously i thought this idea.. and it exist

I’m so happy with this app. Too many books are 500 pages for no reason at all. This app saves you so much time and basically gets to the point for the books. Thank you. Please just work on the glitch where sometimes i cant play audio. I gladly purchased you subscription because knowledge is priceless.

Guy that gave one star mad about free content is a d1k...

Great content. Horrible app.

I think the content is very good but the app makes the experience awful. First, if you have an even slightly poor connection, the audio jumps around like crazy. They say it's a known issue but it's been this way for months.
They've also paid no attention to UX which makes even the simplest of tasks like seeing the queue or marking something as a favorite hugely frustrating.
I hope to see some signs of life from this company but I'm not holding my breath.

Outstanding App !! Hands down the best

This is by far the best app for book summaries. I’m surprised that it has not received 5 star rating by some users. Not sure why. I have spend 4 hours on various book summaries app, and the most user friendly with best functionality is Blinkist. Hands down ! No debate ! Users show some love to this German company.
