We are up with Blinkist Review -this time it covers books!! Its an app named Blinkist.
Who does not love to read books with a cup of hot coffee ?
Sadly, we all know how busy we are in today’s time. We barely have time to sit near a window with a mug of hot coffee AND a good book. In case of a non-fictional book-it’s even a greater challenge. Non-fictional books need a fresh mind and a mind that reads and thinks deep as the leaves of the books are flipped.
BlinkList is for those who love to read but don’t have time.
Fortunately, this is the very gap that Blinkist identified. They came up with an app that assists you to keep leading so enlighten yourself with wisdom.

In this Blinkist review we listed both the Advantage and Drawback. We want our readers to know honestly the usefulness of this app. We’ll start off with Blinkist’s advantages.
Blinkist Review: DRAWBACK OF THE APP
- Makers of the app correctly identified the app in the reader’s arena. As good as the idea of the app is, developers still need to fix certain issues.
- Not all books store the audio option for users. It seems only popular books hold this valuable option.
- The app is also not an affordable adoption. See the price below.
- Many have also experienced problems with the audio option. Others have complained about the Bluetooth issue.
- My final Blinkist review drawback opinion is my personal opinion: As an avid reader of books, it is impossible for an app to summaries a books entire content. It can miss out many valuable information in the process of summarizing a content. This thought has been correctly shared by many book readers.
No apps have ever been perfect to the fullest. However, this app is certainly a meaningful app to me. Gaining info on wisdom is no small category.
I believe that if developers of this app improve its user experience then it will go a long way in assisting people who are hungry for knowledge.
Lastly, I found the developers very responsive to the feedback given from users. So I’m not giving up on this app in exchange for idle time without any learning!!
