    Robbed me out of 85$ I needed for bills
  • Reviews are of very low quality

    It seems they prioritized quantity of review over quality. The reviewers seem to just rewrite the concepts of books in their words which usually means you are reading a biased interpretation, rather than a properly synthethized summary.

    It’s just so disappointing when you come across a “free” app and it really isn’t. I mean I don’t even mind if it’s half free. The only way I can see what it’s all about is to sign up for the 7 day free trial. I don’t get it. Do these developers think we’re all stupid. It’s about money, plan and simple. I have upgraded many many apps not only because they were awesome apps but also because the free content was so useful. Those apps that offer enough that you actually don’t have to upgrade, those apps are the ones that get people to open their wallets. I’m deleting and I won’t ever know if it’s actually a good app.
  • Dripping with liberalism

    Update: I had decided to try the free daily pick, however each book was full of Leftism. Glorifying drug use, racism propaganda and the last straw was today’s pick. David Hogg, the anti 2nd Amendment media Ho. I’ve deleted the Blinkist app. Previous comment: When I read other reviews about bias I thought that person surely must be exaggerating. However, the liberal/leftist bias is clear, though sometimes subtle. I’ve grown tired of the Leftism that has ruined social Media, schools, Hollywood... I do not know if the bias comes from the summary or if the books are written with a bias. I’d be more than happy to purchase this subscription if there was a library of work from conservative authors and summarized by a conservative. I just don’t trust people who cling to a liberal/leftist ideology. Also, for a number of the books, the summary was way to short. I’d rather have a 30 minute summary than miss too much important info in the book. Lastly, I was quite unhappy when I clicked on Free Trial and I was immediately setup to be charged automatically after one week. I would have been fine if they had first made it clear that I’d be automatically charged and give me a choice whether to continue. I feel it’s a deceptive practice. Grrrr....

    I currently have a free week to try your services but can only listen to the item that is free. I’m not going to purchase your application unless I can read or listen to more of your content. If you offer a free week most of your contents need to be free or purchasers will not have enough information to decide if they want to spend $80 + for continued use of your program.
