  • Enjoy content app is awful

    When the app is not crashing, it is nearly unusable in that I have to press play to advance to the next blink. And in doing so, it sometimes skips to one blink too far. This is maddening and just makes me angry instead of enjoying the content. When will this be fixed if ever? If not, I would like a refund. Does Blinkist have support? They received my question several days ago with Netapp response.

    Don’t take a 7-day free trial as it will take you longer to unsubscribe. Don’t do it! Don’t do it! Don’t do it! Repeat ad nauseam!!!
  • Love the app (missing night mode!)

    Love the app. Please add a night mode for evening reading! I often read at night and the white screen is jarring. Either a typical night mode or red color shift/ blue light filter would be great!! Cheers : )

    I really love everything about blinkist, the concept, the delivery and the daily email. I spend hundreds of dollars on books just sitting on my coffee table waiting to be read… No more! Now I'll know if a book is worth investing my $$ into with these fabulous summaries. I haven't tried the audio feature yet, but have a long car ride next week to check it out. Looks forward to being a lifetime subscriber and seeing where you take this...
  • HORRID content judgment

    They’ve got trash like Dinesh D’Souza’s book explaining how generally liberal Democrats are the real Nazis. If this is the kind of curating they do, serving up hate-mongering screeds boiled down into quick and easily digestible nuggets, then There’s no way to trust them to thoughtfully present more legitimate, factual, and useful material. Without trusting that, what’s the point? And I certainly won’t contribute any money at all to a service that is promoting and spreading such disgusting, divisive propaganda. I will be deleting the app.
  • Won’t accept my subscription

    This app haunted me in ads on social media and I did finally cave to buy it. I’ve now charged my card several times and keeps kicking me off the subscription. I’ve wasted time on multiple days trying to trouble shoot this. What a waste.
  • Need to upgrade app to view content

    By C. Blyth
    Deleting straight away, the majority of content is only available by purchasing the upgrade - or - the app is not user friendly enough to find free content.
  • Genius !!

  • Facebook login on iOS doesn’t work

    So I’m halted right at the starting gate because I can’t make an account and wanted to create one via Facebook. All it does is send me back to the app which then doesn’t reflect the logged-in status. QA is a thing, guys. So is integration testing.
  • One of my favorites
