The app lets you learn from the best nonfiction books at the speed no one can beat. And it’s not a speed-reading app. It’s much smarter than that.

Blinkist provides summaries from over 3,000 bestselling books in several categories, including career, society & culture, nature & environment, health, entrepreneurship, education, economics, creativity, leadership, or communication skills.

Each of the books is distilled by experts into 15-minute reads, available in both text and audio. The company adds 40 new titles each month, so you will never run of ideas what to blink-read next.

The iOS app lets you seamlessly switch between audio and text, so that you can continue no matter what you are doing. There is an offline mode, send-to-Kindle feature, and ability to sync highlights to Evernote.

What I love most about this is that you can easily take notes on the notes. Like… you can sync it up with your Evernote account and they beautifully manage your notes. You can also send content directly to your kindle which I particularity enjoy reading on.

Benefits: A smart way to learn faster through 15-minute summaries; personalized recommendations; audio & text modes.
Compatibility: iPhone, iPad.
Price: Subscriptions from $1.99 to $54.99, free 7-day trial.
