    This is my first review ever. For me, I start reading books but then get pulled in different directions and end up dropping the book or picking it up way later. This app is great because I get the full, albeit pixelated, picture in manageable chunks. But I have to say the ideas presented in the blinks are in no way lacking in substance. Little author bios are nice additions! (And year of publication.)

    A good way to start the day some coffee and a good read or two!

    I loved this app and enjoyed my 7 day trail. I was excited at the end of the trail when they offered a 50 percent discount. I emailed customer service and asked if they would honor the 50 percent off as a monthly subscription. As a single mom I just can’t commit to paying 100 dollars for a year. No dice for me though as they rejected my request. So I guess I will just stick to the free daily blink for now.

    I have read the blankists of books I’ve read previously. And I found that what I read in 15 minutes covers about 90% of what takes me many hours of reading. Most books are a tad, just a tad, too leftist.

    Limited material during free trial and glad I read negative reviews from many who were charged $100 and no refund if they were hours late in cancelling during the worthless free trial period. I cancelled the same day I downloaded the app.
  • Terrible interface

    Accidentally pressed reading mode instead of listening. Tried to switch back and it turned out to be impossible. Wasted half an hour trying to do it and finally gave up. It should be intuitive without requiring to be a rocket scientist to switch between modes.
  • Audio stop after 2-3 chapters

    Still haven’t problem after I have complained 6 months. It’s really frustrating when the audio stopped in chapter 2 or 3 on all the books I listened to. Sometimes, the Retry button works for 60% of the time. Many times, I have to exit out & return back to the book. If you don’t fix this soon or respond to my complain, I’ll stop my subscription next.
  • Grateful for Blinkist

    Using this app I have actually increased my reading of books by reading what I truly NEED to read after Blinkist coverage. I’m glad I stuck it out for the long-term.
