  • Beware of “free” trials

    By Geoff123456
    Tried a free trial, canceled the trial, but was still charged for a year. Beware. (Thanks to Apple for getting my money back.) A legitimate free trial would not auto-charge the users account.
  • Great app, awful subscription

    By ShawnB92
    This app is a clean, well put together, and generally enjoyable with reasonable pricing as well. However, being required to pay the full value of a yearly subscription instead of a monthly payment model is a major turn off. Asking for the full value up front is quite plainly a shady business practice and I am disappointed to see such a successful application relying on it.
  • Awesome App

    By Lucmareve
    I absolutely love this app. You get to update your general knowledge on all kind of issues and subjects. Great reads. I look forward every day for my book. Eve
  • Love this app

    By Afikk
    I love being able to read the summaries quickly and learn everyday!
  • Another greedy app

    By Good grade hunter
    Free 1 week - good Less than $10/ month - good Charge 12 months at once - no thanks. No deal for you if you don’t offer monthly plan.
  • Surprisingly Interesting

    By Monkey8face
    TLDR: this is a great APP. After downloading this APP, I assumed that it would be like when your favourite fictional novel is adapted into a script for a film. Disappointing. But I’m constantly charmed by the ability of the people at Blinkist to accurately capture the essence of the books they review. The structure is basic and understandable, the information accurate and relatable and the overall message clear. Get this APP. If you enjoy reading, but wish you could read more in less time, this is perfect. I use it when I’m getting through a longer book and want a break. If I’m travelling for business or just sitting on a park bench soaking in a few minutes sun before it’s back to work.
  • Yes, get it!

    By Trickeycrazyfrog321
    I’m finally getting caught up on all he titles I wish I could read. This app is awesome. The “blinks” are well written and embrace the message of the full versions of the books. I’m really enjoying broadening my knowledge and have found a couple titles I plan to read in full. Let me be clear, this app is not to review or sell books. It’s well written pages highlighting the important ideas in books. I was hesitant to purchase the yearly membership, but the week free trial convinced me, and I’m looking forward to diving into more titles. Thanks for offering this unique app for those of us who love to read and maybe don’t have quite the time to devote.
  • Great app, amazing influence.

    By _elijah__ B
    Thankful for this app! It has sparked an interest in my life to read more and to better my time management in order to learn more things that I can apply in my everyday life and future business. Would be forever grateful if you could bless me with a free subscription, but thank you for the app itself :)
  • Not accessible

    By Khalidaal112
    I like this app and I have subscribed for a year, but unfortunately the app is not fully accessible with voiceover a screen reader built in the iPhone for visually impaired users. I hope developers of the app make their service more accessible for the next update..
