  • Seems interesting but the one year payment model is limiting

    I Downloaded this yesterday and so far this so seems very well made. The audio books are the reason I got this, so I can listen to summaries of nonfiction literature whole I do the dishes🙂 The only downside I can see is the payment plan. Having to pay for one year in advance is a turn off for most consumers in 2017. In this era of Netflix and Hulu we are conditioned to pay a small monthly charge and receive a premium product while also love having the ability to cancel at any time. I'll use it for a few weeks and check out the free daily audio blinks and if it's consistently solid material I'll drop the eighty dollars but I recommend a reasonable monthly plan if the Blinkist team wishes to grow.

    Maybe I'm doing something wrong but this would be absolute perfect if landscape was available.

    Love hearing the "Blinks" - the key points of each book. Allows you to get the gist by reading the blinks or listening to the audio. I review books i wouldn't normally but and broaden my horizons as a result. It is a timesaver and if a book intrigues you you can always buy it for more details.
  • Amazing tool!

    I agree with Dr. Nemo, aka Narwhal. I've deleted Blinkist but am still receiving their useless emails.
  • The Ultimate Speed Reading Technique

    I love books. The dream of reading two or three books a day is out of the question. With Blinkist I get the sensation of reading several books a day and easily retain the main point of the book. Since it only takes about 15 minutes, I can now get through books that would not normally make it to the top ten books to read. I'm learning about things that I'm curious about but don't have the time to look into those topics. Great app!
  • Don't buy through iTunes and no refund

    As travel, learning and being out of the country for months is my standard. This app is a great way to catch up on current issues in the USA. Very much enjoy the variety and efficiency provided.
  • Excellent App!
