  • Terrible interface

    By Wojciech Majewski
    Accidentally pressed reading mode instead of listening. Tried to switch back and it turned out to be impossible. Wasted half an hour trying to do it and finally gave up. It should be intuitive without requiring to be a rocket scientist to switch between modes.
  • Audio stop after 2-3 chapters

    Still haven’t problem after I have complained 6 months. It’s really frustrating when the audio stopped in chapter 2 or 3 on all the books I listened to. Sometimes, the Retry button works for 60% of the time. Many times, I have to exit out & return back to the book. If you don’t fix this soon or respond to my complain, I’ll stop my subscription next.
  • Grateful for Blinkist

    Using this app I have actually increased my reading of books by reading what I truly NEED to read after Blinkist coverage. I’m glad I stuck it out for the long-term.

    Watch out to everyone doing the trial. If you don’t cancel within the 7 days you get automatically charged $100 for the year plan. What a great business model.
  • Not as good anymore...

    Blinkist what happened !? The content doesn’t seem to be as good anymore.. not to mention the art work , I wish you would go back to your original UI and core principles. This whole now selling audiobooks just makes you the same as all the other services. I thought you were unique I now but I was mistaken.
  • Other sync options

    Great app but needs additional sync options other than Evernote an Kindle. DayOne would be a great addition.
  • Perfect for ones who want to know a little about a lot

    Perfect for ones who want to know a little about a lot in the shortest amount of time! There is content available for just about everything, you can never be bored with the books available. The option to have both read or audio was the final decider for me on purchasing the annual package. I love the flexibility of both for every single book! I have been waiting for something like this and was thrilled that great minds already made it happen!!
  • Use it all the time - thanks

  • Don't do the trial

    By j4ke3ysn4k3y
    If you forget to cancel before the brief trial period (surely I'm not the only one to forget these things) you're charged $100, and neither Apple nor Blinkist will refund it. Borderline unethical way to overcharge potential customers.
