  • Great idea

    By jess-ification
    I was really excited to find this app. I’m still navigating it in the early stages; this is my first day using it. However, I would love to see this app as it develops, and i’m wondering for instants if there will be more material available as time passes, covering more angles of academia. Either way, this is really an awesome idea, I just dropped out of college for a short time to save up money to finish getting my degree, and I’ve definitely felt like I’ve been mentally dwindling, so having this app to help me exercise my mind is a really cool thing.
  • Have to create account

    By Mikdashim
    I won’t use an app (or website for that matter) that doesn’t let you see what it offers at all, until you create an account.

    Dangerous app. They will change $80 and not provide any refund. AVOID! Don’t Try it!
  • Love it

    By Qwert156
    I love being able to choose books that I can quickly get a summary of. I really enjoy the ability of the audio. Every time I take a shower I also listen to a book. For some reason the selections of books are phenomenal. Blinkist keeps me up to date on all the current reads and makes me aware of older books I missed.
  • Can’t get my money back????

    By janew404
    How do I get my money back if you forget to cancel within the trial period????? What app charges for a full year after a trial period? My fault for not reading the fine print.

    By emnem16
    I’ve enjoyed the content so far BUT the 7 day trial is really a 6 day trial because you need to cancel 24 hrs before, which is how they get you!!! Now I have $80 charged to my account that I cannot afford or get refunded for. I doubt I can get a years worth of interesting content out of this app. Very expensive
  • great for the “meat” - quick tips and info

    By LawHacker316
    Really enjoying and getting a lot out of the app so far. Gonna play with the settings and see if the audio playback can be a little more automatic - maybe I’m missing something - otherwise, really slick and looking forward to using more. ~SW
  • Perfectly condensing amazing content

    I’ve read a lot of books about motivation, finance, entrepreneurship, self development and they all seem to have the same the same thing in common. 90% lecture and 10% actionable. Blinkist has been very successful in getting me that 10% and saving me from the other 90%. I’ve ever listened to the blinks of some of my favorite books and can say that I got just as much, if not more out of them than the actual books. Thank you!

    I hardly ever write reviews, but I had to make an exception. Such a great concept and executed well. I’ve read/listened to 4 books today alone. I’m already using some of the tools learned in one of the books I read/listened to this morning. I used it on my commute to and from work and can’t wait to get to some more titles tmrw. Definitely worth the money!
