    Not impressed
  • A big nothing burger

    By PortlandGuy465
    I’ve always appreciated the Cliff Notes version of most books this is just one step up from nothing
  • If you love to learn

    By zubinmo
    This has been the most engrossing ap to date. This could change the way we learn— the access to insight is overwhelming!
  • Ok

    By Yesnoyesfakeappyo
    Extremely slow to load titles, play audio books and read it. Not my internet connection; the app is very slow.
  • Super

    I love it so much!
  • Waste of time

    By jerroldw70
    I was excited to listen to my first book with this app. I listened to “things fall apart”by Pema Choodron. It was basically the same as reading the summary on the back cover of the book, total waste of time. I immediately cancelled the subscription. It would be a little useful as an intro to the book to know in general what the book is about before you buy the book. You could easily read a description by the publisher for free.
  • Awesome clean UI

  • Instaread! Smashes it out of the park!!

    I had this problem of catching up with books, as I was a busy professional! I always wanted an app like this, I am sad I found them a little late, but as they say better late than never. My commute is 45 mins and I play audio summaries and listen to each one everyday on my way to work. Most of their summaries are long which takes around 20 minutes to listen and few of them take around 15 minutes to listen & I feel nourished with knowledge! Thank you Instaread, for making knowledge accessible in a efficient way! Their covers will win awards, even Penguin Random House needs to learn from them!
  • Instaread Rocks!

    By Vishnator
    What an app! Brillaintly designed, coupled with functionality and utility. Key takeaways of best sellers and newest titles for such a price! Annual subscription is the way to go! Instaread is making me powerful, as knowledge is power! Add more titles and this app will be off the charts!

    UPDATED REVIEW ***************************************************************** I initially posted a one star review because I got stuck in a loop and couldn’t access my account. The owner reached out to me and we figured out where the problem(s) started. As is the case with the majority of single engine aircraft accidents, pilot error is the first place to look. I suggested to them to make a couple of changes on their WEBsite to prevent a similar situation. Having used just one item from their catalog - successfully - I will change my review to three (3) stars. I will update the review at the end of my trial. Stay tuned. 😊 ***************************************************************** FIRST REVIEW They have none. Uninstalled. Bye-bye, we gone. Signed: a VERY satisfied long-time Blinkist subscriber.
