  • Good concept, but there is no free lunch.

    By Whyaskifallaretaken
    I would be pleased to see a validity of a “Free daily pick” extended beyond 24 hours limit, since it is not always possible to go through it in a particular day. I was mot able at times to finish blinks before these were “locked” in library for premium use only. It would be kind to allow those unable to finish blinks a 1 week time to do so without locking out. Thanks for your work.
  • I like the selections but...

    By Daxnkvl
    I understand this is a business for the originator and I feel they’ve recommended books that I wouldn’t have thought to read. I would hope that I would be able to have a library or at least one of them that I could access the day after it was suggested. It seems this only comes with a subscription.
  • App keeps crashing on iOS

    By Nelsonvega
    Paid for the entire year and I haven’t been able to use it because the app keeps crashing
  • Latest update crashes app - but they fixed it ASAP

    By davidpson
    UPDATE: I’m changing my 2 star to 4 star. I contacted customer support notifying them of my problem and the issue was fixed within 24 hours. They even emailed me apologizing and telling me the issue was on their end. I respect that and appreciate it. ________________________ I really like Blinkist and have used it a lot. But the latest update has caused my app to open and then immediately crash over and over again. I’ve tried uninstalling it and installing it again with the same result. Now I can’t even use the service I have paid for. 👎
  • Love it

    By allaydesai
    Daily reads force me to explore various topics and the audio option is very well narrated.
  • Love Blinkist!

    By Lilampned
    I’ve always been an avid reader, but I’m at a stage in life when I hardly have time to do so. Blinkist is my go-to app for a condensed version of a book but with all of the substance.
  • Big problem

  • “Money-Back Guarantee”

    By ztpan89
    Blinkist is an okay app for what its function is, but is overpriced and conveniently hides its expensive 1-year subscription price behind the promise of a “free trial” that charges you over $100 once it ends. Blinkist promises you a money back guarantee if you’re unsatisfied with your subscription, but don’t be fooled—accidental 1-year renewals of free trial subscriptions for an app you were intending to uninstall don’t qualify for refunds or as your “money back guarantee”. The design of the app as such is a scam and it’s clear the developers don’t care at all about their users, only about profiting off of taking advantage of them. Don’t waste your time with Blinkist. They don’t care about you and their customer service is disgusting.
  • Blinkist

    By piersonv
    I love the product but the customer service is horrible. My subscription stopped working I believe due to an update. I tried to log back in and was unable. I tried several different attempts to correct including:change password and uninstall re-install. Nothing worked. They have no phone support only email. After emailing Blinkist 8 or more times and receiving 3 or 4 responses (literally emailing back and forth on the same thread) they indicated their belief was the blame was my email service provider blocking emails. This is a very expensive app for this type of service.
