Teacher Review

To churn out a 15-minute summary, Blinkist app's team goes through the book, takes out the key insights, and explicitly explains them in a crisp, concise manner. Every such insight that is pulled out is called a 'blink'.

How Much Does Blinkist App Cost?

The app comes with free and premium plans. The free plan indeed has some features missing from that of the premium plan. Interestingly, the premium plan can be used for 30 days, and if the user wishes to proceed further, he needs to shell out $12.99 per month. For annual commitment, it’s $6.67 per month.

Blinkist Premium includes:

  • Unlimited access to 2,500+ titles
  • Unlimited access to audio versions of all titles
  • Personalized recommendations from the Blinkist editorial team
  • The ability to read & listen offline
  • A send-to-Kindle feature
  • The ability to sync highlights with Evernote  

Advantages of Blinkist App:

  • Graphics are fantastic and intuitive.
  • 2500+ book summaries with the addition of over 40 new ones every month.
  • Pricing options like Free trial, Plus, and Premium.
  • Offers quick view on a book you already read.
  • It’s a good sneak peek for someone who wishes to buy a book.
  • Audio summary for visually disabled people.  

Disadvantages of Blinkist App:

  • The app offers just an overview of a book; so don’t expect the full go through.
  • By reading a real book, it takes you away from the smartphone and gives the much-needed rest that we all crave for. But with this app, our dependency on the smartphone remains the same. 

Overall, Blinkist is a smart concept for the people of today’s generation who have very less time and also wish to fuel their passion for book reading. With the availability of comprehensive book summaries for reading and listening, this app should be must-have on your list.
