  • Subscription Required

    Not in the print. This looked like an interesting app. Before I could use it they wanted my credit card.

  • What fresh hell is this?

    By Jakela
    start with a shout out to Dorothy Parker who is “above is one of the best of all time. A lot better than this I have Kinley disguised plagiarism that is being engaged in and that you are paying $90 a year for. Whether this is a scam or not regarding the trial subscription I could care less. If you are the kind of person who wants to cheat working riders out of their royalties then you deserve to get screwed. As for the bottom feeders who started this app I can only say that this election is so anemic that no one who is of any intelligence would ever find a book here to even have summarized
  • Brilliant Learning Tool

    By Ariasasha
    I am in love with this app! What an incredible tool to up-level your knowledge. I love how I can learn from great thinkers while I am doing other tasks. It’s so convenient and empowering. Highly recommend!
  • A life changer!

    By Alyx R.
    This app is excellent in every way. How did we ever live without it? I love to read full works, but who will ever have the time to read an entire library of exciting titles in one lifetime? Blinkist makes this dream possible. Great books distilled=poetry for the eager, lifelong learner.
  • Amazing

    By Tekosh
    I love this app. It brings value to humans for free. So many people are so busy that won’t make time to read whole books but with this app they can at least read summaries of so many books. One book per day.
  • $90. What a joke.

    By Mikeandnora
    Classic bait and switch.
  • Great Idea, but my history goes away..

    By dstreev
    I love the idea of actually burning through books like this. Direct and to the point! In my first sitting, I went through 4 blinks. I want to understand ‘what’ I’ve read and keep them for reference. So I added them to my Favorites. I also wanted to determine which of the blinks I had added to my library I had already read, but that’s not easily determined. Sure, if I open it again, it knows... But how about a ‘read’ indicator in my library? So I started to add a ‘read’ tag to those that I finished. Then, as my library started to grow, I figured I could delete those that I had read already to ‘clean’ things up a bit... and ‘boom’, they’re gone from my favorites, highlights are gone, etc.. Would be great to ‘keep’ my history of a blink, even AFTER removing it from my library. Because I don’t want to look at the first page of my library of hundreds of blinks every time. The general management of blinks needs a little more work.

    I wanted to try this app for one week, but, when my phone wouldn’t let me cancel the subscription I was charged $89. INSANE. Apple refuses a refund even though I have already deleted the app and will not try again. I will make sure none of my friends download so they will not be tricked.
  • Political bias

    By Sophie26773389:
    Too many editors added their own political bias that was not what the writer put in the book. That’s too bad, this could have been a good idea.
