    I wanted to try this app unfortunately the only trial is with an auto subscription of $85!!! I went in to unsubscribe before the date and believed I was successful. Unfortunately I was billed the $85 and cannon figure a way to talk with anyone— only a computer. If you are not extremely savvy with your iPhone I would reckoned DO NOT TRY IT! It’s not worth it!

  • Free daily is inappropriate

    I just downloaded the app and noticed that the first free daily is "She comes first", a book about sexually pleasuring a woman. That's fine, we're all adults and I can choose another. But nope, there are no other free books. It's inappropriate to have this be the only book available (and by coincidence on my first day of the app). I'd suggest screening the free books to be ones that are appropriate for all groups as they try out your app.
  • A good way to put more info into my brain

    Don’t have time to read every interesting sounding book, so Blinkist allows me to sample from a wide variety of them. The summaries are deep enough that you actually learn something — they are more than teasers.
  • Great content. Horrible app.

    I think the content is very good but the app makes the experience awful. First, if you have an even slightly poor connection, the audio jumps around like crazy. They say it's a known issue but it's been this way for months. They've also paid no attention to UX which makes even the simplest of tasks like seeing the queue or marking something as a favorite hugely frustrating. I hope to see some signs of life from this company but I'm not holding my breath.
  • Subpar Connections

    I love the idea of this but the main point would be to listen on my commute and the connections constantly skip and drop (while all of my music streaming is still going strong). I was ok with the price because of the value but now feel like it was a big waste. A great tool if you are in a stationary place but not good for a girl in the go.

    I enjoy this app, there are time when it randomly restarts but for the free version i have no complaints and use this as one of my sources of new knowledge and inspiration daily.
  • Outstanding App !! Hands down the best

    This is by far the best app for book summaries. I’m surprised that it has not received 5 star rating by some users. Not sure why. I have spend 4 hours on various book summaries app, and the most user friendly with best functionality is Blinkist. Hands down ! No debate ! Users show some love to this German company.
  • I found my addiction!

    I absolutely love Blinkist, I have a very busy schedule and love to read self-improvement books. Someone shared the app with me and today is my second day and I already blinked a lot of books. I’m using the yearly subscription and it’s worth it. Keep up the good work. I look forward to using Blinkist.
  • Love the ideas

    Really love the app. Quick concise summaries for on the run. I love to read but juggling too many cats right now. This lets me stay on top of some great ideas.
