App Reviews

  • Love this App

    By PanchitoEscombros2013
    I love this app and its content. It has excellent books and the summaries are exactly what one would need to walk away from actually reading the book. It is like having a taste of an actual book before investing the time and money to read it. Thank you! Keep up the good work and good and useful content.
  • Subpar quality, technical issues, biased, limited genres

    I’ve gotten more out of free summaries and reviews from Goodreads. The quality of Blinkist summaries is generally poor. The app crashes frequently. The summaries are not free from bias. The authors sometimes inject their own personal opinions and even finesse some of the original author’s thoughts. See law of attraction type books for what I mean. The variety is limited to the same few genres. It gets old and themes repeat themselves over and over. It’s not worth my money.

    Signed up for a discounted account, and didn't want a subsciprtion to renew. They charged and won't refund. Don't get sucked in.

    Nothings free. At all. You have to take the 7-day trial or else you seriously cant do ANYTHING. I’m not paying 6.99 a month for a few books mate. No, sir. I could find the same info in these books as I can find online on Youtube.
  • Takes Facebook info and is paid

    Takes your Facebook information and when you give it to the app, then it tells you still need to pay to use it.
  • Reading for non-readers like myself

    By ashleyacroyoga
    I’ve always had trouble reading, concentrating, and focusing for long periods of time. As a child, I had a tutor for reading! This app allows me to read with ease the meat and potatoes of a book I want to read. Thank you Blinkist 🙏🏼
  • Two negative thoughts

    1
    By Quark Gluon Plasma
    1) I don’t want to sign up with these people using email or my Facebook account. If I like their service and they earn my trust, then maybe I will provide personal information. 2) The authors of the books they summarize are presumably not being compensated. Their business is fundamentally different from reviewing books, and it is exploitative.

    I love the Blinkist concept. The app has had some bugs in the past, but seems to have been ironed out. There are still missing tittles; hopefully the team is working on adding to the library.
