  • If u don’t pay, you will read books with an agenda

    By Diego_primerva
    Gave this app a chance for a couple of weeks at the free level. The thought of non-fiction books condensed into 20 mins worth of reading appealed to me, but I have been turned off by the politically biased selection each day for the free reading. I was hoping to improve myself personally, professionally and ethically. But instead, I find myself reading politically biased literature... something that drags me down.

    Free advice from someone who took a patented premium product into a saturated market with record breaking success; HIRE A NEW MARKETING MANAGER ASAP! I can say without a shadow of a doubt that your Marketing Department is NOT hitting its target 🎯 with any TRUE success Reasons in order 1. Credibility - Brand equity begins and ends with TRUST (judging by the response given by your customer service rep, I can already hear the crackling radio “Houston We Have a Problem” or what I’d call a Pro-blemish. Pro-blemish is when you hire someone bc they have a degree and think that makes them the “Steve Jobs” of marketing A Branding and Marketing culture is the face and voice consumers see and hear Hire a consultant or firm that is in touch with your target market, for all stakeholders I hope you do Great PRODUCT, I’d use it, but I DON’T
  • App Won’t Allow Email Signup?

    By Alexandrain
    The app does not accept an email login apparently. I actually thought I could do business with this app. I don’t “Facebook”, so seems I’m out of luck.
  • $80 Pricetag

    By benshou
    Good idea and costs 80 bucks. Not sure about how well the idea works because I didn't want to spend eighty dollars. Check it out and let me know if you've got eight zero clams or bones or big ones.

    Cancel immediately. When asked the cost, I was told it was free. I will not pay for it.
  • Love it for leaders

    By Davisshaw
    Leaders are readers, or in my case, audiobook listeners. Thank you for providing relevant and up to date content in a timely manner and at no financial cost to us if we choose the limited, on story, version. Thank you
  • Disappointed

    By superexcited123
    I’m frustrated that Blinkist decided to not be transparent about how their trial period works. I signed up for an account and not only was it not explained that I was using the platform under a trial but also that it was a 24hr trial. I’ve heard good things about this app and was sad to see how deceptive they decided to be with the layout and design of their user sign up process. Just be upfront with all these details.
  • Paid Member. App crashes all the time.

    Paid Member. App crashes all the time making it unusable. Please fix it.
  • Not free

    80£ a year don’t say it’s a free app
  • It’s good and clever

    By TeD2D
    I really love this. Haven’t signed up for the subscription as I’ve just been reading the daily stories which are good. But at $80 for the year, I find too much to spend. There should be some smaller mid-tiered plan - maybe at $35 that allows access to maybe 1 of any book a day or something similar. I would sign up in a heartbeat!
