  • Terrible marketing

    By N8Carr
    I see a pic of a great looking post, in Pinterest... I click it, it takes me to App Store, I download Blinkist, and the article advertised in Pinterest is locked unless you sign up for a paid subscription... I guess you guys don’t know how to fish... you have to bait the hook... get the hook in the water... let the fish get the hook in it’s mouth before you set the hook... you guys are yanking back on your rod too quick.
  • 30 day refund isn’t legit

    By DDK6969
    They advertise a money back guarantee but don’t support it through in app purchases. I have been left holding the bag. The content on this isn’t great. Way too general and doesn’t do a good job of summarizing a complete concept for the books I wanted to read. Don’t waste your time with this.
  • Great for busy self motivated people

    By mariahuebert
    I just downloaded this app and I already really like it! I try to read one book a week, but with a high level management job I often fall behind. Even when I’m on track, I still want to be absorbing more and I don’t always have the band-with. This is a great app that helps rejuvenate me mentally with new ideas without my having to devote more time than I have. I’m only on the free solution but I think I’ll likely upgrade since the value I’ve had so far is high!
  • It’s good but

    By Dirty.b.laflare
    I really like this because I do read a lot on my spare time and love psychology books but it’s not free. But the one a day does atleast offer some good content. Maby 3 would be better.
  • Love the App

    By js641
    Love the app. Really do. Great summaries, and I’m learning a lot on the trial. I will probably pay a subscription when the trial ends, however I think one of my only hesitations is how the subscriptions are handled. I’m not a business guy, but many apps will do subscriptions in a lump sum, so the technique must work. I don’t have the lump sum, so I appreciate the monthly subscription. I understand it being a little more, but the monthly subscription is twice the cost of the yearly. To me that’s a bit of an annoyance. Again, content it great, app works well, love what I’m reading. Just wish the subscription options were a little closer together in terms of per-month cost. Great work overall!
  • Aweful app just tries to steal your money

    By stolenbyblinkist
    Be careful! It will steal a full year subscription silently out of you pocket after you try the app. Stay away. No way to get your money back.
  • Good luck trying to end the subscription

    By CCG7193507
    All the possible books from the trial needed an upgrade, except articles you could already find online. Trying to end the trial to avoid paying the annual subscription had me going through their website, the app and iTunes. They are very efficient to start your free trial but make all they can so that you are unable to end it.
  • $80 Bucks! Super Glitchy

    By HandsOn
    Ap freezes constantly. Thought I found a replacement for Audible. Nope. Skip this one folks. You’ll just be irritated by the continued freezes! *Advise on directions to refund this or cancel any further “automatic yearly renewals”!
  • Great idea, terrible execution

    By Technology is better
    I’ve never wanted to use an app so badly. Unfortunately the app simply does not work. I started the trial and the subscription activated in my Apple ID. But the app never gave me access. Customer support was useless. Too bad...
  • Poor app, decent concept

    By ToDo26
    App constantly cuts out while on Bluetooth. “Blinks” sometimes stop and restart on their own.
