Not in the print. This looked like an interesting app. Before I could use it they wanted my credit card.
west of time books
start with a shout out to Dorothy Parker who is “above is one of the best of all time. A lot better than this I have Kinley disguised plagiarism that is being engaged in and that you are paying $90 a year for. Whether this is a scam or not regarding the trial subscription I could care less. If you are the kind of person who wants to cheat working riders out of their royalties then you deserve to get screwed. As for the bottom feeders who started this app I can only say that this election is so anemic that no one who is of any intelligence would ever find a book here to even have summarized
I am in love with this app! What an incredible tool to up-level your knowledge. I love how I can learn from great thinkers while I am doing other tasks. It’s so convenient and empowering. Highly recommend!
This app is excellent in every way. How did we ever live without it? I love to read full works, but who will ever have the time to read an entire library of exciting titles in one lifetime? Blinkist makes this dream possible. Great books distilled=poetry for the eager, lifelong learner.
I love this app. It brings value to humans for free. So many people are so busy that won’t make time to read whole books but with this app they can at least read summaries of so many books. One book per day.
Classic bait and switch.
I love the idea of actually burning through books like this. Direct and to the point! In my first sitting, I went through 4 blinks. I want to understand ‘what’ I’ve read and keep them for reference. So I added them to my Favorites. I also wanted to determine which of the blinks I had added to my library I had already read, but that’s not easily determined. Sure, if I open it again, it knows... But how about a ‘read’ indicator in my library? So I started to add a ‘read’ tag to those that I finished. Then, as my library started to grow, I figured I could delete those that I had read already to ‘clean’ things up a bit... and ‘boom’, they’re gone from my favorites, highlights are gone, etc.. Would be great to ‘keep’ my history of a blink, even AFTER removing it from my library. Because I don’t want to look at the first page of my library of hundreds of blinks every time. The general management of blinks needs a little more work.
I wanted to try this app for one week, but, when my phone wouldn’t let me cancel the subscription I was charged $89. INSANE. Apple refuses a refund even though I have already deleted the app and will not try again. I will make sure none of my friends download so they will not be tricked.
Too many editors added their own political bias that was not what the writer put in the book. That’s too bad, this could have been a good idea.
This app is the easiest, most effective app I ever used.
Great App! The only thing is that there aren’t many titles in various fields. Hope you can expand your collection! Otherwise, I found the App very helpful when you have a limited time to read on a daily basis.
I wish the membership was not too expensive . Great app
Signed up for a free trial only to find it is a very expensive app. Fine print says that if I don’t unsubscribe in 5-6 days I’ll be charged +$170. So I’ve followed the convoluted instructions (on google, obviously I’m not the first to have this issue) to opt out which don’t actually ensure that I have in fact opted out. No chat lines available I’ve then contacted iTunes directly letting know about this app. Frankly speaking this is a stress producing process that borders on dishonesty. I will be very annoyed if one cent is changed!
I love the concept of reading the summary of books. I love Blinkist. With Blinkist I’m learning something new every day and I can do it in such a short amount of time!
I love this idea of blinkist. I have always been a listener to other people’s stories and taking something out of it and now I can do the same with blinkist. As long as the blink does not get repeated.
Saves time, gets me the information
Misleading for me. I despise apps that promote themselves as “free” but then you pay through the nose to access any content. Deleting and not recommended
The book summary removed the power and essence of the original author. Read the actual book, its worth the time and effort
I love this app. I have ADHD and these blinks are about as long as my attention will hold.
I like that I can get the summary and see if I want to read the book or not.
this is an awesome app for people who dont have the time to read a full book ! would recommend blinkist to anyone that is into reading. One thing tho is I really wish they would offer more genres, other than that awesome app !
I started the app for the trial and was charged immediately. They have a 14 day money back guarantee so I over looked it. Figured I had 7 days to try it right? So I put in for a refund request after 2 days and it was denied by Apple. I then put in a request to with blinkist customer support and was told to talk to Apple. Apple however wouldn’t allow me to create a ticket for an issue that they ruled is not refundable. Blinkist said my account doesn’t exist. It existed enough for them to take my money of course.
I love Blinkist. It gives me the most efficient access to so much knowledge and information.
This app is illegal and goes outside standard use policy
I read one of their articles for free and I decided to join. They never let me read anymore. Just constant bugs. The subscription was registered in the App Store, just couldn’t read anything. Tried to sign in, tried to reset password, kept getting error messages. So I unsubscribed.
Go to the public library and pick up the books they offer. Read the beginning paragraph or two, and the last two paragraphs of each chapter in a book. You can form your own opinion (get some use out of that brain) without a reviewer’s bias. And it’s free.
I like the app and daily recommended but it does make me sad that everything else has to be payed for.
How many books did you buy and they ended up on your shelf gathering dust? This app is not only brilliant but makes me save money in the long run; I read the review, and if I really like the book and feel like buying it, I go ahead and spend the money. The summaries are excellent, and sometimes it's even easier to understand the summary than the book. I Highly recommended that...
I used app before, but end up signing up for audible. Said will give it a try again, but book suggestions instead offering business books show books about refugees and other SJW crap. I get that agenda from news and will never pay to a company who uses platform to spread single sided political views. Blinkist you just lost my business after spending so much money on ads just because you push political opinion without learning what I really need.
I just read the Nike story using Blinkist App. I found it super easy and I am happy that I gave it a go! Growing your mind to me means a willingness for me to choose to learn which means obtaining information which in turn supports my mind to grow and open to ideas/concepts which I may not have otherwise thought of yet. Blinkist is a win win tool for this.
Absolutely love it! Not just the content but also you reading experience. Will highly recommended
Every one should have this app. You will always get something new to learn to adopt.
Sehr interessant und praktisch!
My daily ritual is to listen to a blink on my way to work everyday. This means that before breakfast I’ve read a book everyday. I list to the “daily” one as the topics are very varied and always interesting. Enjoy
I love to have a summary of a book like blinkist does it. However, I would like to have more than 1 free reading per day, or be rewarded when you read several summaries, e.g. with 1 free book more per week.
Some books are simple, linear or straight forward opinionated and it’s ok to bla-bla-bla them as if “there you go, no need to waste your time with them.” But others don’t fit this mould and should be treated accordingly, in an extensive manner, not trying with all costs to describe it in the same number of characters. If what I’m saying sounds too subjective, try this: instead of reducing any book to 5 pages, reduce it to 5%. It’s only fair to the book, author and knowledge. :)
