App Reviews

  • So Many Books, So Little Time

    By OpenMindCitizen
    I love this app!! If you have huge stacks of ‘To Be Read’ books, in your library and not enough time, this is perfect for you. I can listen to the bullet points of a book that I may want to read in full later. Or not at all. Blinkist gives you the, ‘meat of a book’ to enjoy. No time to read the book? Get Blinkist and you have the best of both worlds.
  • A modern day approach to expanding our knowledge

    By kaykaybean13
    I LOVE this in depth summary that is given for EACH book you choose to read or find if it is something that interests you and it also goes the extra mile with key points and features that the book includes. I especially appreciate this because I’m an avid reader who very often purchase books that I’m unable to get through due to personal preferences and failure to keep my attention or focus on the story. When that happens it’s so disheartening that I’ve typically gone back to those books once finished others that attract my attention and finish them JUST BECAUSE. This app eliminates that situation with the informative areas of the book they showcase and make it very simple for those who aren’t bibliophiles to absorb the shorter version of the books message and they are armed with knowledge they didn’t have 20 minutes prior. I RECOMMEND THIS FOR ALL BOOK LOVERS(bc we can purchase whole book if it piques our interests)AND FOR ALL OF THOSE PEOPLE WHO WANT TO FEED THEIR BRAIN WITH FACTUAL, INFORMATIVE AND EDUCATE THEMSELVES ABOUT VARIOUS TOPICS THEY OTHERWISE WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN PRIVY TO. BRAVO TO THE MIND BEHIND THIS IDEA AND APP!!!!!
  • Very good

    By bshpKM
    Gives me the luxury of getting a lot of knowledge in a short time. My only concern is when I try to highlight a sentence or phrase, the app freezes and is only rectified by a restart.
  • Learning

    We need to learn something every day and Blinkist makes it fun and easy.
  • Beware! Exploits the App Store subscription system

    By mike-tucker
    I decided to give this a try with the 7 day trial. So I set a reminder 6 days later to make sure to disable the auto-subscription. 6 days later I go into the buried iPhone settings to discover the app had auto-renewed for an entire year at $65. No way to cancel or refund or even switch down to a monthly option. It’s an awful system that developers like this are exploiting. Stay away.
  • Poor service

    By jjjrr10
    Trial service I have been trying to cancel the free trial and the subscription for 3 days. The information you sent does not get me to the path to cancel all service. I have asked you to drop my free trial, all I get is a web site that gets me to a closed loop with no results. On that basis I would never recommend using this app. To anyone. Please cancel my free trial and the subscription
  • Essentially scammed!!!

    By ewhit3
    Free trial didn’t work at all (couldn’t access any of the content) so I assumed it hadn’t even gone through. Then I got notified that I got automatically enrolled into the YEARLY trial that cost SEVENTY DOLLARS. Asked for a refund and they said to take it to apple. Apple didn’t offer a refund. This is a complete scam. Also I’m pretty sure these reviews are fake there’s no way all these people signed up for this trash.
  • Not worth the money

    By Express179
    I want to be contacted immediately by this developer. They have made the cancellation process complicated and time consuming. I am very disappointed in the presentation and the presenters. Not worth the money and I feel roped in. CANCEL MY 7 DAY TRIAL.
  • Amazing!

    By osekalome
