  • Fix “pause spoken audio” when using navigation.

    One of the biggest selling points of this app is to be able to listen to book summaries in the car. But if you’re using GPS, this app doesn’t auto pause when the GPS announces turns. Every other podcast/audio app does this. As the summaries are super condensed it’s easy to miss something. Planned on subscribing just to use this in the car. My job involves constantly driving to new locations, so this isn’t gonna work for me. Hope an update addresses this.
  • Terrible for iPad

    Every time I swipe from the right side of my screen blinkist appears. It drives me crazy. There is no way to turn it off. The app will be deleted soon if this isn't fixed.
  • As good as you would hope

    I love this app- honestly- as an executive with a crammed daily calendar, this is the only way to really work through titles. I’d like for you to expand your title library to include more religious options. It seems like there may be an intentional aversion to Christianity and Christianity-based books based on the lack of availability of those titles, which is concerning for me. I love your app- make it inclusive for a wide array of religious perspectives please!
  • Nearly 7 dollars a month but you don’t find that out till after you give up your email address

    Not very impressive. Not bad, but nothing to highlight either. I can’t justify the annual cost, and have used this app less than a handful of times due to my enjoyment with the experience.
  • Free trial does not give sufficient warning before making you purchase an $80 membership

    By Chenchar
    When your membership is by default an $80 year long membership. I expect a notice saying ‘Your free trail is expiring. Did you like it? Would you like 1 year subscription?’ Not an automatic purchase. I want my money back.
  • Great Ap

    I love reading these Blinkist summaries. The highlights of some books are all I care about and some instill the interest to follow up and read the book. A great way to read through a variety of topics keeping up with new releases and reading summaries of old classics. I enjoy the review of reading summaries of books I’ve already read as much as ones I may want to read.
  • After paid the subscription, it always stop after each chapter

    I love this app before I paid the subscription. They gave us a one week free trial and I really enjoyed listening to all kinds of audio books in such a short time. So I decided to pay the subscription. But, after I paid the subscription, whenever I tried to listen the audio books, it always always stop after each chapter, so I have to click the play button after each chapter, it is so inconvenient that we can’t listen all the way until it is done like when it was on free trial. Please do fix this problem. Thank you.
