    I've been enjoying Blinkist for just a week now. It's easy to navigate, with great selection of daily topics.
  • Great idea - Bad execution

    The premise of this app seems genius, but it doesn't deliver the value you would expect especially for the cost. The summaries don't give deep enough insight to really understand the important pieces they're summarizing. Each summary just seems very basic, uninteresting and way too high level. I'm not sure if the people writing the summaries aren't good at getting the point of the book or if they're trying to over simplify them for the listeners. I had paid for a year membership up front but I wish I could have cancelled after the first month. I tried going back in to listen again to give it another chance, but it seems like it's getting worse.
  • Excellent Way Of Learning

    I have become a habitual user of this program. I have never been patient in reading books, but these cliff notes are truly informative and educational. Great investment of both money and time.
  • No option for refund

    I just purchase the subscription and after listening to 2 so called books wanted to cancel . The app doesn't give you that option . I feel cheated because the abstract of the books is no more than 5 min long and really doesn't give any feel of the actual content
  • Awesome!

    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!

    Great tool for getting a sneak peak at what matters the most to you. Just enough to make your mouth water.
