  • Perfect but apple watch app missing

    By SMShovan
    One audio book per day is awesome. It will be great if it adds support for apple watch
  • Dark mode doesnt work!!

    By _J_____
    Please fix dark mode. Black background and white font starts off. Every swipe to next blink or highlighting turns to black font on the black background. Driving me nuts!!!

  • Useless if you have free version

    By GreenGoblinMonk
    It kept asking me to upgrade to paid version for every one line of news it showed. Very screen would just ask for upgrade.

  • Don’t get the “7 Day Free Trial”!

    By mgyoung1960
    Blinkist sounded like an app I would enjoy as I love to read. However, at least one of my favorite authors was not available on the app so I cancelled the app well prior to the “expiration” of the “free” trial. I was charged $99.99 for a years subscription. Blinks Labs responded promptly at first, but since I provided the receipt and proof of cancellation they asked for, there has been no response. Don’t get this app!!!
  • I agree with demattia!

    By Farkel99
    Thus far, what I’ve seen - as a free user - does seem biased. In one case (12/3/19) the blink sounds like a thinly-disguised advertisement for the services of financial advisors. 1 star for content; 5 because the app actually works - gestures are intuitive; 0 because of the way they handle billing after a 7-day trial. Would be more palatable to lock a user out after 7 days, and plainly state ‘If you wish to continue, you MUST agree to . . . .’ one of the following payment plans.
  • I love to read

    By joeyram818
    I read 2-3 books a month and always wish I can read faster. I see some readers suggesting skimming thru a book and reading just the highlights of non-fiction so you can read at least 1 book a week. Well, this is it. Of course having the entire book is still the best, but this will help you decide if you want to get the entire physical or audio book after listening or reading from Blinkist. Just try it for 7 days to see if you like it. Try to get books that you’ve read so you can see for yourself.
