  • Shady payment practices

    By lars lexa
    They charge you on the 6th day of the free trail for the full year subscription price to f $108, not the 7th as you would expect. They provide no refunds since you are “renewing” your subscription, and try to push the issue off onto Apple. I had over $100 that I do not have taken from me by this company. Thanks for stealing my grocery budget for the week. Any potential I ever had to use or recommend this app is gone. Companies that treat their customers like garbage deserve to fail.
  • No free review. I don’t use Evernote I use OneNote and GoodReader for better and worse.

    I’m not subscribing without a FREE preview. I browsed for the classics and didn’t see them. It looks like advertising for new books. I’ll research further and update my review. Perhaps vendor will reply.
  • Don’t fall for the Trial

    By ksksks60
    Wow, it’s been quite sometime since I’ve come across such an unethical and potentially illegal charging scheme. They lure you into a seven day free trial but they will charge you the full amount before the seven days are up. And when you try to cancel and get your money back within your seven days, they tell you they have nothing to do with it and that you have to talk to Apple since the payment was processed through them. They take no accountability and pretend that they weren’t the ones who CHARGED YOU in the first place. I will never purchased from this company under any circumstances
  • Great way to checkout a lot of different books to determine what you want to read.

    By Entrepeneur in training
    I use Blinkist to quickly review a lot of different books to see what I am really interested in before buying them to read. It is also a great way to get the key points of a book of general interest that I would otherwise not have the time to read or listen to on audible. I am a busy entrepreneur running a company and managing employees, culture, product, sales and clients. I have gained a lot of great leadership, management and communication skills from Blinkist. Incredible efficient use of time to explore a lot of ideas.
  • Good Synapsis

    By Brigham1
    Some of the synapsis are great and some books I have read seems like they underserved, however, you can only ask so much out of 15mis. I think theirs is a great way to decide whether to invest in a full audiobook or paper copy. 4/5 stars.
