Customer Reviews

Only one disappointment, otherwise great!

My one disappointment about this really handy app is that the free version doesn’t let you go back and finish a book the next day even if you’ve already started it. I was interrupted and unable to finish the book that day and found that my book was locked the next day when I was able to return to reading/listening, so I didn’t get to finish the rest of the book. I can understand wanting people to get the paid unlimited access to all books, but it would be nice at least to keep the books you’ve already read or started even in the free version.
Otherwise, I do enjoy this app, and the price for unlimited access seems fair if you can go that route. I see some people complain about the Blinks/summaries being incomplete. But this is really subjective. Everyone would summarize and focus on different points, so I’m not going to criticize that unless there’s blatant misdirection.
Thank you for this app! Keep up the good work!

An advanced education for a year...LOVE THIS!

I really love everything about blinkist, the concept, the delivery and the daily email. I spend hundreds of dollars on books just sitting on my coffee table waiting to be read… No more! Now I'll know if a book is worth investing my $$ into with these fabulous summaries. I haven't tried the audio feature yet, but have a long car ride next week to check it out. Looks forward to being a lifetime subscriber and seeing where you take this...

HORRID content judgment

They’ve got trash like Dinesh D’Souza’s book explaining how generally liberal Democrats are the real Nazis.

If this is the kind of curating they do, serving up hate-mongering screeds boiled down into quick and easily digestible nuggets, then There’s no way to trust them to thoughtfully present more legitimate, factual, and useful material. Without trusting that, what’s the point?

And I certainly won’t contribute any money at all to a service that is promoting and spreading such disgusting, divisive propaganda. I will be deleting the app.
