App Reviews

  • So many books. So little time!

    By Jlinchpin
    I love audiobooks...I can listen to them anyway. But Blinkist Has change all of that. Instead of reading a book to me I get the most pertinent information in 10 or 15 minutes. I think it’s brilliant, I’m addicted.
  • Great customer service

    By Npruggerkk
    I tried Blinkist on a free trial and it auto renewed before I could cancel the free trial. I enjoyed the service but I barely used it and therefore didn’t see the value. I asked for a refund and it was processed immediately. In a world of bottom lines focused companies it is refreshing to deal with a customer service team that doesn’t fight back, listens and satisfies the customers needs. I greatly appreciate this and will certainly keep blinkist in mind in the future when I believe I’ll use it more.

    Can’t find a way to contact them.
  • Longer audio books

    By Crasiannomad
    I wish that the books where a little longer and had the ability to highlight and take notes while listening.
  • Relevant

    By Buyer R

  • Most valuable app on the market

    By best34567
    They have a special pattern going on in there books which helps and makes super easy quick to learn new stuff totally worth it
  • beware: free trial = $100

    By The Bieg Deal
    tried this after seeing ads. after two buzzfeedish “articles” that recommended having more sex, drinking more water, and then compared waiting five seconds for better decisions to rosa parks refusing to stand up on a bus i was out. imagine the surprise when i went to cancel the subscription and saw that the “free 7 day trial” was conveniently preset to a $100+ annual recurring subscription. this is the kinda stuff that makes people feel unsafe to try new things on the app store. treat your customers like people instead of money cows. deleted.
  • Preview and reminder tool

    By fair 11
    Great tool to screen potential reading list and also as a convenient reminder for books already read. Worth the money saved in avoiding the less useful books.
