  • Great content. Horrible app and support.

    By Zman771
    I think the content is very good but the app makes the experience awful. First, if you have an even slightly poor connection, the audio jumps around like crazy. They say it's a known issue but it's been this way for months. They've also paid no attention to UX which makes even the simplest of tasks like seeing the queue or marking something as a favorite hugely frustrating. Their support team has been unresponsive and unhelpful. I hope to see some signs of life from this company but I'm not holding my breath.
  • Unable to cancel my subscription

    By Kiwiboo2000
    This app has terrible customer support. I want to cancel this subscription and their is no easy way to do this.. what a rip off
  • Worst ever

    By skelly300
    Never subscribed Just clicked on seems no info for app and charged $79. Yikes! Enough to keep me from even trying to learn about apps. Thoroughly disgusted. Beware of Blinkist!
  • Subscription not recognized.

    By Kachman
    Was charged $12.99 for 1 month and won’t let me log in. Disappointed since I like the app.
  • Disingenuous

    By Jim mckee
    to imply this is a free app by allowing to download for free, only to find out it’s not. Guess this is the direction that all app developers will take in the future. Will absolutely REFUSE to buy any app that is misrepresented in this manner
  • Had Potential

    By Avid User 79
    Heard about this app thru Ben Shapiro and took advantage of the discount. Although you don't get the nuance and author's tone in the summaries I feel they offer a decent primer. My big complaint is that for some reason all the audio downloads are now playing duplicate chapters. The online suggestions are unhelpful and I've yet to receive any response from customer support. I'll likely cancel if this continues.
  • More Plans

    By LuckyTreat
    You need more than 3 plans. There are more than 3 kinds of people in the world.
  • Annoying voices

    By OvertheAds
    There should be two options of voices for each. I keep getting the same annoying lady for the ones I want to listen too.
  • New Home Screen App

    By TSB
    Love this app. You can read one preselected blink a day for free (you have to navigate to home and select the “free daily option”) but the value is certainly there for the premium version.
  • Don’t waste your time

    By lizard591
    Marketing at its finest. Offers no actual information unless you want to pay for it. I’d head to YouTube instead of wasting your time here.
