  • Blinkist is brilliant

    By CGermaine
    I love Blinkist and appreciate the way it shares the central understandings of each book while encouraging the reader to dig deeper.
  • Like the former “Cliff Notes” but better

    By queenieshobaby
    I absolutely love this app. I am one who purchases books, but skims through to find the important part. With this app, I can do the same thing but, the work is already done for me, I can listen to it, and I only pay the cost of one book per month- to read thousands of books. What’s even better?? I can copy and paste good parts of the blink and share. I love it! And I’m telling everyone to sign up!

    Misleading in the ad I saw, Costs for majority of books, deleting app
  • Wrongly advertised

    By Fhhddcvrsc
    Not free, just another app that charges you for articles you can google yourself.
  • Great way to gather ideas

    By Shadron Calisti
    The app is great for gathering up ideas. There is a great selection of summaries that are easy to understand.
  • Monthly read summary

    By russ 2020
    I want to know how many books i read in one month? Total read does not give me monthly / weekly reading target. Please edit like this way- Total read this week 10 Total read this month 58 Total done and dusted 190 😄😄😄 this will be inspiring for the readers to improve their reading habit. Please please bring it in new updates.
  • Great in every way! 😭

    By millionaire 💰
    This app is great for anyone who wants insight on the world around them. This is by far a must have app for anyone young or old. There’s several different topics and each topic has several different articles which broaden your understanding immensely. I’m glad to say I came across the app and it changed my life.
