  • Great tool for insight in a blink

    By The Comeback 9
    Brilliant idea, great selection of books, WELL DONE!
  • Rip-off/ Scam

    By 7johnd
    It was supposed to be a free 7 day trial. They charged me. I can’t believe. I cancelled just for their cunningness. I’ll read old fashioned way.

  • Deceptive

    Only the app is free. To hear anything, you must be rich. Deleting and apologized to my friends I sent it to 😡
  • False Promotion

    I got the following message in my email: Summer is ending, and so is our sale: Today’s the last chance to get 40% off Blinkist Premium! Start with a free 7-day trial, and unlock unlimited access to 3,000+ best-selling titles: No matter your personal and professional goals, we’ve got your rest of the year’s learning covered. Don’t hesitate—offer ends today! I purchased through the link from their website. After 7 day trial, I would be charged $60 but I was surprised to see $100 charged. Is it a scam?

    It is an awesome video and a written presentation
  • Wonderful source!

    This app really brings together wisdom and efficiency. It really needs an official/built-in AirPlay feature/function. Thanks for this great read!
  • Distracting dramatization

    By F. R. A. N.
    I enjoy the concept but really struggle with the inflections in one of the female readers voices. It sounds like she has a split personality trying to break free- every few words she changes her tone and over emphasizes or tries to dramatize the reading. Honestly it’s so distracting and frustrating I really hope they rerecord her past recordings.
  • Great Content, Great App

    By Sd1739hw
    Update 10/16: I deleted the app and reinstalled. Search is working as expected! Updated to 5 stars. :) I get an email with a book's title and author, but when literally copying and pasting the title or author into search in the app - it finds nothing? I love the content, but can't find the content within the app. For example: trying searching for "Secrets of Sand Hill Road" or search for the author "Scott Kupor" within the app - you get nothing. Now search for it using the mobile site and viola. Am I doing something wrong? Please fix!
  • Fees

    By rardds
    Blinklist should be upfront about the yearly fee before you download it
