    I like the fact that I don’t have to take multiple hours to understand one simple idea this app makes it easy to understand long books without actually reading them because in all honesty you don’t need to read for 7 hours to understand the golden rule of honesty.
  • Lame selection of books

    If this were a one time price of a few dollars it would be a cool novelty. The collection lacks in nuanced titles and topics. Also felt pretty salty about the automatic annual subscription charge after a few days of free trial. 👎

    I’ve enjoy the first day of my free trial. Breaking a book up into important chunks is definitely less intimidating, and more enticing for me too get into a daily reading habit.

    The way the books are summarized, how conversational they’re narrated makes it for the perfect companion in my everyday commute!

    This app engages in deceptive business practices. It defaults to sign you up for A FULL YEAR subscription, at a cost of $99, banking on a hope you will forget to cancel in seven days. I didn’t have a chance to try the app immediately but assumed, incorrectly, that it would just bill me a month if I forgot to cancel. So I went on vacation and forgot to cancel, then just tried to cancel and realized it billed me $99! I don’t want to use this app until next summer. Cancel my subscription and refund the rest of the year! It never gave me a choice of monthly or yearly subscription or I would absolutely have chosen monthly, bc I had no idea whether I’d like or use the app.This has not only made me hate the Blinkist app, it has made me decide I’ll never subscribe to another app in the App Store. Shame on you Blinkist and shame in you Apple.
  • Love, but too expensive!

    I really loved this app - the content was great, I love the delivery and relevant topics, but it was just too expensive to justify continuing the service. If the price goes down I would definitely consider resubscribing!
  • Fantastic addition to my morning commute

    I love the bite sized knowledge Blinkist gives me. I listen almost every morning and I’ve found 95% of their selections on point and thought provoking. Plus the narrators voice is really soothing. I highly recommend downloading.
