    This is not free. Just the app! You have to pay for your reading material. What a joke.

    Just downloaded the free trial and am disappointed that after each short blink the auto play does not work. I have to manually press play every 2 mins or so. Found it very frustrating so will be canceling my subscription.

    Blinkist was an amazing find! The writers provide great summaries which allow me to pull out the key take aways quickly. Love starting my day with a new blink.

    I just downloaded Blinkist today and I feel like I have died and gone to heaven! I have several thousand books on my Kindle app which I have never had time to read; many of these books on BLINKLIST I own. Now with Blinklist, I have the time to read everything my heart desires. It saves me a lot of money because instead of impulsively buying every book that I want to read, I can simply read it in 15 minutes! Some books I definitely want to read the full version of; Blinklist gives me that choice and makes me feel like superwoman of reading.
  • Big library but poor quality summaries

    I really wanted to like this app/service. I read a lot and having access to quality book summaries would be very valuable. Unfortunately Blinkist doesn't deliver. Pros: there are a lot of books in the library...I was surprised that nearly every title I was interested in was available in the app. Cons: the book summaries ("blinks") are really subpar and don't provide a good overview of the book. I read several and they just skim the surface often missing the main idea of the book. I read blinks for books I've previously read and they never covered the big ideas in the book. Instead, they tend to focus on one or two themes in the book often missing the big picture and never providing a good synthesis. These are more like long book reviews rather than executive summaries.

    The idea of app is nice and great, but other than that why is there only one free daily pick? All items are locked and you need to purchase, this is not so fair not everyone can pay money.
  • Countless hours saved

    I use Blinkist to decide whether or not I want to read the actual book. Long story short, it saves me a massive amount of time by not wasting hours reading something I don’t find interesting. Also works great for a quick refresher on a topic.

    If you read the fine print, this company is located in Germany and if you ask to have your data deleted, they send you a canned email that says they legally have 30 days to reply to you. If you click the wrong button for the free app, you may be charged after 7 days for a subscription. I can’t find all the info and am still researching. It looked like a good thing but I don’t want my data out of the country where it takes 30 days for someone to reply to me.
