  • Great idea! Pricey execution.

    By tennisbokkie
    I love the idea of this app, as I often find myself interested in reading a book, but never having enough time to read it. This app highlights the main ideas of books and gets specific, which is hard to do. I just wish it was a bit more affordable on a monthly basis because many, including myself, cannot drop $80 at once, even though it does turn out to be rather cheap when looked at on a monthly basis.
  • So far so good

    By Siriu2
    I’ve only used it for about an hour but it’s easy-user friendly, good quality, professional and sort of like a fast track version of audible.
  • Concept sounds good but I didn’t get value from it

    By evanwitt
    I liked the concept and decided to subscribe. The only subscription option was for a year. I listened to a few books a few books I had read and realized that summaries didn’t capture the books very well. I cancelled two weeks in but since the subscription is for a year they got me for $70. I feel ripped off.
  • Cool with room for improvements

    By flojoto
    Pretty cool app, sometimes the summaries seem very limited (the signal and the noise, thinking fast and slow) and sometimes they are really great (7 habits of highly effective people). Some books are probably just inherently easier to summit, some indication as to how well it works to summarize the book. Also I experienced some bugs with play order.
  • Get real - You won’t even let me DELETE you

    By RiverBorn
    After receiving an insulting email from “Emily” from this app - who stated I should get my sh*t together after being lazy all summer - I tried to delete it. Was directed to write DELETE in caps in a little box. Did this over and over. But, DELETE apparently doesn’t work for your insulting company, even when ask somebody to “yell” the word at you in uppercase letters. Get your sh*t together, please.
  • Trouble

    By don'tworrybehappy082618
    Does not let me cancel my membership
  • Free trial doesn’t work

    By Bill the critic
    The free trial on this app doesn’t work and is buggy. You start the trial , it subscribes you but than says there’s a payment error, a non existent payment error. There’s nowhere online to find support easily, like the novel idea of an email. Would like to try but seems to have fundamental tech issues.
  • Too short to accurately summarize

    By Zosoo7
    After reading the real thing and comparing to the summary, some major points were missing. It’s better to just read the original and be patient, let the information sink in bit by bit.
  • This is a great app

    By Fhundecsgb
    Hi this is a great app that allows you to get the most out of whichever book you are looking to read, while shaving you countless hours in the process. I love this app and would love to continue the subscription but being the poor college student that I am the 79.99 dollar subscription is steep. It actually just took the last of the money i had to pay for a class for the subscription. If there is anyway i could cancel my subscription and get a refund so I can do well in this class, surely Blinkist will have a life long customer.
  • Robbery

    By Jungle Boy Oz
    Robbed me out of 85$ I needed for bills
