Blinkist (iOS, Android, and the web) condenses popular non-fiction books into text overviews and summaries that can be read in just 15 minutes.

You can browse books across a wide selection of topics including Personal Transformation, Economics and Politics, Science, Current Affairs, Communication and Social skills, Psychology, Productivity and Time Management and more.

The reader itself is uncluttered, with a pleasing progress bar as you swipe between chapters of the book (each chapter is usually condensed into text equivalent to that on an A4 piece of paper).

There's an audio feature so you can listen to books. You can highlight and save snippets within books - and sync them to Evernote. Your account is synced across all devices and you can even see what your friends have been up to.

The app has a free trial for 3 days, then it's approx. £4 a month afterwards.
