  • Tried to sign up but failed

    By KevinPurcell
    I tried to sign up for an account but when I entered an email and password it failed without taking me why. Went to their site and searched for support and saw a link that said "Why we don't offer phone support." Decided then it's not with the hassle.
  • Another one of those money snatching apps.

    By edgeted
    I don’t understand how stuff like this is really even allowed. This is just bunch of people taking your money. They guaranteed money back if you are unhappy with their app that was a lie. You get a trail then they charge your account 99.99 on the day you should be able to cancel it with out a confirmation. If you contact them with about the money back they send you to apple. Of course apple will do nothing. Pretty cool racket they have going on.
  • Nuggets of gold

    I have read the blankists of books I’ve read previously. And I found that what I read in 15 minutes covers about 90% of what takes me many hours of reading.
  • My Heaven on Earth

    By Kdwissner
    As a writer myself, (and owner of over 1000 books) I am a voracious reader. Problem is, there are not enough hours in the day to read all the amazing titles available. Blinkist is truly an answer to a prayer. Not only is it efficient to receive Blinks while walking my dog, doing dishes, etc., but also helps me discover titles, topics and authors to follow and books to purchase should I choose to add them to my amazing collection. I have shared this app with fellow authors and ravenous readers, and ALL are so very grateful. 5-stars for Blinkist and its authors!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
  • Blinklist has appeared at the perfect time...

    By @poppymac55
    Blinklist has appeared at the perfect time, for me and the positive changes I’ve been accumulating since I retired 9 months ago. Reading the first installment confirmed my progress so far. It ain’t easy to break old habits; but the instances where I’ve been successful, that 2nd wind rushes in and it’s so wonderful to fill the void with the next Good Habit, which is difficult in its own right. The great thing about Blinklist? I can already see how it will speed the process of change by an order of magnitude!! Only 30 minutes after downloading, it’s like I’ve been struggling to see the details of a distant object by sight alone, and someone just handed me a powerful telescope!! Organized, focused, fast, elegant!! To the smart guys who’ve created Blinklist—thank you! Well done!! PJ McCollum, California

  • The new normal

    By AnthonyS244
    Future of reading- so important to get multiple perspective/opinions on how to go about personal and professional growth. Rather than spending a week on 1 book I can grow through 1 book while walking the dog in the morning or going to the gym. Really creative and simple app that will revolutionize the way we read books.
  • Love reading fast

    By mamadida

  • The best

    By Rdiamanti
    This app has changed my life. Thanks to this app I can fight my ignorance in a rate that I thought it could never be possible. Also helps my creativity and level of complexity by reading about new ideas every day. This app is the best favor you can do to yourself. At least this is my experience.
  • Directional clarity

    By Porshca
    I am enjoying the opening up of the direction that appears to be opening clarity of where I am going. It is very spot on and I am feeling comfortable and not being distracted as usually happens. I am really liking the way the Blinkist sets up a space to move forward!
