    I give it 4 stars because some Blinks should be an hour long or longer. Some books shouldn’t be summarized in a very short format. If you don’t want to spend an hour Blinking, you can take a pass on the book, fast forward, or skim the Blinks.

    I had no idea this was a subscription that is useless w/o monthly or annual fee to use. I thought it might have in app purchases, annoying enough, but to be stuck w/this is beyond deceitful. I’d give it 0 stars if I could!(BTW-i didn’t subscribe. There was no way off the app site except to choose how you want to be charged. So I just swiped up w/o touching a box to get use of my phone. They charged me annual fee!!)
  • Love the service, but the app could use a lot of work.

    I absolutely love this service. The combination of written and audible summaries, just the perfect length, make it a great annual investment. Really disappointed, though, in the app. Couple of things that drive me nuts. Newer titles stop until you read them. I get it. They want people to repeat titles and by forcing you to dig your phone out of your pocket when you were exercising, you begrudgingly offer a review. However, when I’m trying to listen to a few books in a row while exercising, I find it very annoying. Also, the flow of the app is clunky. For instance, I struggle with the difference between the library, the queue, saved, favorite, etc. It could really benefit from a UX overhaul.

    This is my first time reading contents from Blinkist and I’m blown away. I am not a reader and Blinkist made it compelling for me to read without taking away my attention. I’ve even created a document to make notes as I read - that was only possible in my dreams before and now its turned into reality. Thank you Blinkist!
  • The app reader has stayed stagnate for years…

    The content is good but using the app as a reader is frustrating. Please add: 1. Proper highlighting that’s easy to use. Copy how Apple Books and the Kindle app implements highlighting. It’s so much easier to use on those apps. 2. Please add page turns instead of having to constantly scroll to the bottom of the page in order to read the content. 3. 15% of the top of the screen on an iPhone is not being utilized. Please make the text full screen. This will maximize screen real estate. 4. Please give us more font options. There has not been any additional fonts since the app was released. Please allow us to use system fonts or add fonts like Helvetica.

    I discovered this app this morning, it’s what I never that I’d get but what I knew I needed. Extremely useful for readers who want to jump straight to the points in the books they read.
