  • You have to pay for everything

    You have to pay for everything. There is like one story for free but that’s not worth downloading a whole app for. They should make this more clear on the app page or just make you pay for the app upfront. Be transparent.

    Ok, so... upon opening the app, I *immediately* get hit with an offer up upgrade...WITHOUT EVEN HAVING A CHANCE TO LOOK AT THE APP! Seriously, that’s nervy... and so, as quickly as you they beg for money, is as quickly as I deleted it.

    It always says you are offline. Even though I am on LTE or Wifi. I know my network is fine. I can access other sites on safari. My other apps are working fine. I deleted and reinstalled app again. Still same issue. Please fix it. It has been working fine earlier.
  • If there were just a couple more free reads

    This app is great! Everything about it seemed right and the idea is perfect however there’s only 1 free read a day only if there was 2 then I’d rate 5 stars and maybe even sign up for the subscriptions. But they really hold back on the free version.
  • Great app

    Good summaries. Useful information. I now use this instead of browsing Facebook
  • Love Blinkist but needs Apple Watch App

    Blinkist is perfect for me I leave very little time but need to continue to ingest information and this is a great way to skip the fat in nonfiction titles. I have audible and cannot spend 10 hours having filler read to me like a child. Hey devs: give us a Watch app like audible’s and we can take our blinks to the pool and on runs! IMO for what we pay for the app this is a basic ask.
  • Great but too rich

    Im quite enjoying this app and Ive even shared it with someone. Even so, Im still reading the free bits cause the subscription is a bit too rich to be a non-brainer. Id much rather have either a monthly subscription model (much easier to pay $8/month than $80 one off, for me at least) or a cheaper -with fewer benefits- subscription model. Practically speaking, I’m simply too busy to be reading 1 book per day like other reviewers say, so Im still unsure whether I’ll ever pay the $80 for the 3 times a month I’ll end up using this otherwise great app. Think about it, I bet there’s many like me.

    The best app for those who wants to read books and understand what they are reading
  • Great app, but needs apps for Watch and CarPlay!

    I love to listen to non-fiction books and podcasts while running with my Apple Watch and while driving using CarPlay. Most audio apps (Overcast and Audible) have Watch and CarPlay apps. It would be great if Blinkist would too! It’s such a great app and concept. Thanks!
