    1 free book of their choice, geez, really?
  • Doesn’t play well with AirPods

    Bug report: When wearing AirPods configured such that double-tap is play/pause, the Blinkist app WON’T PAUSE in response to the AirPod gesture. Resuming play AFTER a pause works reasonably well, it’s only pausing that doesn’t work. (I verified this by comparing versus (a) the Music app, (b) Overcast. Blinkist is the odd one out so the bug must be yours.)
  • Everything is locked.

    Seriously, everything. Don’t download unless you want to pay without trying. They have a “free” daily but it’s just garbage blog posts.
  • Loop over chapter

    There’s a bug in the program that causes the software to repeat playing the same Blink instead of moving on to the next one. Makes it useless for handsfree listening!
  • Excellent Product

    Blinkist summarizes books you either don't have time to read or would rather get the gist of the book without reading. For example, I don't like reading business books but it is useful to be familiar with their content to pick up on references at work. I have compared blinks to some books that I am familiar with and the quality of the summaries is excellent. The app is well done. The subscription price reasonable. I particularly like the feature of having the blinks read aloud like podcasts, frees me up for other activities.
  • Great book summaries

    As much as I would love to read all these books in full, I love that I can listen to the blinks and learn the main ideas of so many more books than I have time to read.

    I downloaded this app a while ago and never got around to setting it up. But today I get a Apple alert saying Blinkist tried to charge my Apple account 79.99 for the yearly subscription fee. Why I don’t know I didn’t even set an account up. Just be careful.
  • Slightly Disappointed

    I read the free one and it seemed good but I was disappointed that you only get one free article a day. I enjoy learning new things and that’s the reason I downloaded the app but I thought I would be able to read things for free. So overall I’m disappointed.
  • Keep on keep 'n on

    Haven’t signed up for the subscription, I’ve just been reading the daily stories which are good. But - $80 I find too much to spend. There should be some smaller tiered plan - maybe half that even if it allows access to maybe 1-2 chosen books a day or something similar.
