Blinkist is an app for users who want to read
non-fiction books but don't have the time, or simply don't like to spend a lot of time in front of books.
The main idea behind Blinkist is to help people absorb the knowledge of certain books without having to spend hours in front of them. Essentially, what Blinkist does is summarise books, break them down into smaller topics and make them more accessible to everyone.
The Blinkist catalogue consists mainly of books geared towards business and personal development. That said, almost all of the books in its virtual library are about self-help and focus on happiness or business success.
Blinkist's easy-to-navigate interface allows you to explore its catalogue, add books to your personal library, or mark books as read with just a touch of the screen.
Blinkist is an 'educational' tool through which you can 'read' a number of books. The problem (or advantage, depending on your point of view) is that in reality you will only read summaries, and these books may not be the most interesting in the world.
