Extremely Efficient

Great way to find good books and absorb the overall summary, sometimes even makes me want to buy the books outright!

This app should be required in every school in the I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts, and beer. Abraham Lincoln

buyer beware.

i was gifted a year subscription and, despite using the voucher, i was personally billed for a year. when i reached out, they informed me that only apple could refund me my money and institute the voucher. i am very disappointed and i feel completely ripped off. what was supposed to be a lovely gift has now become a burden.

If you’re busy this is a must

I don’t normally write reviews, but this app is amazing! They offer a free daily pick to non-subscribers and it gives you a glimpse to see what a subscription is like. I would definitely recommend just buying the annual subscription and listening to a few books a week. Within the first of the twelve months you would get your money’s worth compared to any other audiobook app.

Plumb the depths

Studying has to be taken seriously. You can’t just skim the surface, you have to plumb the depths.

Very sensitive to network disconnects

I often listen to this app while taking my dogs out. I live in an apartment and use the elevator and cell reception is spotty everywhere. This is the only app that can’t switch between networks seamlessly. It also doesn’t seem to have a very robust buffer. Let me give an example. I start at my apartment connected to wifi, as I walk away and get in the elevator the streaming stops because it loses the signal (no buffer, Spotify can continue playing songs). When I come out I’m on cell signal, but playback doesn’t resume, I have to manually press retry on the error that appears and often this doesn’t do anything. I have to then press play multiple times and then it will start playing the same blink I just listened, so I have to skip forward.

Blinkist gets the job done!

Just what I need!

Quick and to the point!

I love to read and yet I’m a skimmer, too; not wanting to get bogged down in non essential or boring text. This app, Blinkist, makes it incredibly easy to acquire new info and insights from authors in a short amount of time satisfying both the reader and the ‘skimmer’ in me!
