  • Beware! Exploits the App Store subscription system

    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

    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!!!

    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

    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.

    This App is an excellent source for getting the gist of books and keeping to the main points while still keeping key details. I was wondering what they did when shortening books that I read in full and they did an excellent job. Highly recommend!
  • Would not recommend

    By ae1900redbird
    I had a problem with my subscription, still not sure what the issue was. I emailed blinkist tech support three times over the span of the week regarding my subscription and charges, however the company never replied. I would not recommend at all, I now will have to call the bank to get assistance since blinkist failed on this regard.
  • My opinion

    It would’ve been nice to have a comment section on each book or even on every chapter of the book, so to discuss with other readers/listeners about the content.
