Editors' Notes

Who has time to read these days? We do! That’s thanks to Blinkist’s brilliant summaries of top nonfiction books. Not only are the articles packed with insight into business, culture, and self-improvement, they’re designed with busy schedules in mind. Seamless switching between text and narration is super-useful on the go, and finding topics couldn’t be simpler.

It's Like absorbing a complete book in few minutes

Blinkist is such a wonderful app I can't live without. The magic of this app is reading and absorbing the entire book in few minutes. If I am not able to read, then there is option to listen it in actual human voice.

My only concern is that annual subscription is seems like simple dollar conversion to Indian Rupees. Guys I can understand the efforts you are putting in. However, India being a big and price sensitive market. Please have some geo specific pricing. I am sure there will be millions of paid customers. Think about it.

And please convey my heartfelt thanks to entire team. Guys, you are doing amazing work and the selection of books are equally amazing.

Too wider audience claim, too little content

For an app that claims to present best nonfiction content in a nutshell, this one is a disappointment. A huge one.

Its one thing to base a business idea on people’s pathetic reading habits, but you have to know whom you are addressing after all- are they non readers (they won’t change their habits with your content), people with minimal reading (they have seen better), or someone who has no exposure to most basic social media (yes, they are a nice target group, at least some clickbaits would increase acquisition!)

I got free version, the samples were too few in numbers (1 in each category) and too less in-depth. If I need their paid version to know “excerpts” of what books Bill Gates read, you are in for an enlightenment. Nonfiction is a mammoth category-and someone capable enough to curate that requires to be of Warren Buffet’s reading stature to begin with.

The usual sign up flow harassed me with technical error, something from a rookie dev who seems to have delivered in hush-hush timeline.

It seems like the owners spent too much on Facebook marketing (I see their ad daily) - a portion of that needs to go to curation team and developers. Look at what medium is able to provide- you are ruining a goldmine opportunity.
