I don't usually rate apps but I think Blinkist is worthy of one! I love the concept and the way they summarise such key and expansive ideas into such small yet intense snippets of information. I currently only have the free trial, but if they made it cheaper i would really consider it. Keep up the good work!
I love the intelligent way of presenting a book in a condensed version giving more space to catch interesting subjects and writers without being so stressed when it comes to reading books! Normally it cries inside of me that I have no time.
I absolutely love it! Been using it for a few months now and it really is a fast way to cover a lot of your interests in a short period of time. It's no substitute for the real book, but for the perfect summaries it provides, pricing too indeed exceptional! I definitely recommend giving it a go. :) Edit: I almost forgot: Customer service was impeccable, as I had to resort to it for a minor issue I was having. Absolutely spot on and very friendly! Thank you, Blinkist!
I absolutely love this app!! I never realized how much I would use it but I blink a book every morning while getting ready for work and it makes me feel productive, smarter, and positive. Best money I ever spent on an app hands down!!! Thank you for making this! I sound like an infomercial but every word is true♡♡♡
Ok app and idea but autoplay doesn't work for me. I get an error screen telling me to check my internet so I have to enter the app every 3 minutes or so and press play manually. It even asked me to check my internet WHILE I was already surfing the net in my browser app. My internet connection is not the issue here.
Great idea, poor experience. Don't buy it if you want to listen to the blinks! I paid a full year subscription for this service and have had troubles for months. I listen to the audio version while doing other things and it constantly freezes during playback. Then I asked for help and they said they are working on it... Now it seems that the controls of the earphones don't work in the app. Also, the occasional time when a chapter does finish, it doesn't move onto the next chapter without me hitting play again even though autoplay is activated. Basic functions a failure, but a great idea.
Our developers squashed a few bugs for this newest version and carefully polished the app from the inside out, so now its true colors can shine through! Most changes happened below the surface, but don't worry: we're building new features to share with you, soon!
