  • Fantastic!!

    With little time to sit and read a book, listening to summaries and excerpts from books is fascinating and enriching. Car rides, chores, and cooking is more fun when a good audio blink book is added! I love it!
  • What we need in our life 🙌🏼

    This is exactly what I need, cut throat to the point no drawn out examples. The message is streamlined and I’m receiving it! Thank you 🙌🏼

    I love the ability to either read the Blinks or listen to them. There is a wide variety of current topics. And the narrators voices are always pleasant.

    Love that I get email alerts to notify me of the book topics that I can quickly look at and decide if it’s of any interest to me. When it is an interest to me, with my fast, busy paced life being a business owner, the audio “snip it’s” (is what I call it) are perfect. They are short and to the point. It’s the only way my busy life allows for me to gain more knowledge or just enjoy a few minutes of quiet enjoyable reading. Thank you Blinkist!

    Hi there Thanks for your awesome app. I really enjoy when I’m reading on Blinkist and I have the chance to read and grasp the main idea of any book just in a short period of time. Now, I have a suggestion for your app. Since English is not my mother tongue language, I have to check hard words on the dictionary and sometimes it takes too much time and make me feel mundane. So I want to suggest to add an online dictionary to your app and just by tapping on the word it shows its meaning with pronunciation and even some good examples. In this case, your app will become much better and helpful, of course from my point of view 😅
  • Great app to have!

    Awesome! Now I’m reading three books a day! I know someone thinks it’s a shortcut, not the same as reading an actual 200-1000 pages of a book... but still better than 0! Informative, straight to the point, the nuggets... I think it’s a revolutionary app that will improve life of anyone who has in their phone. Times changes and everything runs so fast we have to accept the change in our old way too. Fast read is a new way to read!:)
  • Bluetooth pause not working

    The condensed books are awesome! Unfortunately, I can not pause audio with a Bluetooth headset. All other audio apps I am able to pause with my bluetooth headset; however, Blinkist currently does not have this functionality working like other apps do.
  • Buyer Beware

    I get the strategy. You want people to sign up for the free trial, forget about it and collect a monthly payment from them. That’s fine. But why on earth would you auto enroll people for a YEARLY subscription??????? If I forget, shouldn’t I be charged for ONE MONTH???? I have never heard of this strategy before and it is absolutely mind boggling. Customer service is non existent, so I basically just spent $70 for an app that is NOT WORTH IT in my opinion, and I cannot get refunded. I sent an email over a month ago and still no response. Trash app, trash company, I hope you go under.

    This is the best app for bite sized reading and I love it...I am a big fan of books but I don’t make time to read them anymore so I go for the summaries that Blinkist offers.
