  • Wow!!! Glad I didn’t listen to the negative feedback

    By Violin255
    I wanted to read summaries of great books because I just don’t have the time for long texts. But I saw there were so many one star reviews so I stayed away. Then I decided to read the one star review. They were either 1. Why doesn’t this app offer free content or 2. Why don’t I get a refund for canceling early? Jeez people! The policies are clearly state and they have to make money somehow. Otherwise people would purchased a 5 dollars a month service and copy all the content. Love this app. It’s great to fit a bit between classes.
  • Awesome way to read books

    By TejaBalu
    Loved it
  • Good, brief appetizers

    By Mceleste61
    Having read some of the books that have come through on the daily feed I know that the Blinkist isn't comprehensive of all the points a book makes. But it DOES excise all the stories, examples, case studies and such that I often skip over to get the meat of the book quickly. Plus, these information snacks help me know if I want to read the full book. I'm a fan.
  • Step your game up BLINKEST

    By K0ngath0N
    So. It seems that, just like everyone else that was trusting enough to believe you can still get something for free, I as well, was reminded how inaccurate that naivety so often is. I did so this time using BLINKEST's app, in a matter of moments. You guys represent the philosophy of empowerment through information, yet offer none. Thanks for summarizing the fact that your app is a complete & total waste of time, unless of course, you, as someone interested in a free app, is willing to drop some coin. So to summarize, if you've got money to throw away, to ha ve things summarized for you, either hire a personal data, or systems analyst, or, if you don't have that kind of money, like myself, I'd strongly recommend that you get a readers digest subscription. Needless to say, investing with these cons is unadvisable at best. Hears an idea BLINKEST, start offering up a dozen free articles, once a week, to non-paying members. Who knows? You may even get yourself a summarized good review that wasn't the only one clearly written by yourself. I'd say one of your employees, but let's keep things on the level. The fact that my current qualm is your complete misrepresentation in the non-existent free service you're advertising here. Other than that Bravo! Excellent app. I'd give it 43 stars if that was possible... out of 1000 obviously.
  • 30 day refund doesn't apply to app

    By Randareena
    The advertised 30 day money back guarantee only applies to website purchases and not to any purchase made on apple or google app stores. This is frustrating and a rip off.
  • Stop the bleeding!

    Bottom line: Pay $80 right now or $13 a month for as long as you want. Sure, I'll just add that to the kindle unlimited and audible monthly payments, just to name 2, and I'll just work to read
  • App is frustrating

    By stateless269
    I love this product and find it incredibly useful. But the app requires login every time you open it. And it crashes every time you login. I'd just leave the app be if I could listen to the audio Blinks on the web app, but alas, they are mobile only. Help!
  • Poor and bad

    By Srdjan Stevic
    It doesn't allow me to create account on the phone unless I connect it to my FB account. I do not want that. So - uninstall.
  • Great way to read books in 15 minutes!

    By gwh34t
    Having been a subscriber for almost two years, Blinkist does a great job summarizing Books-in-Blinks in digital or audio form. On top of that, their customer service is amazing! No matter how big or small an issue you may have, they're always quick to get back with you and have gone above and beyond more than once!
