Overall, the contents are so monotonous

2
I've been using this app for several month, and I realize that it should be explain there are a lot of self development book. I think more than 90 percent of book of here, is self development things. They should have said that. I only recommend this app for the person who extremely like self development book and wants listen only self development book. The reason I purchase this app, is to listen the book. novel, essay, or history, or information book. Sometimes I prefer to read self development book. If I search 'history' on this app. There aren't any history of world. Ah, only one I found fistory of Nigeria. Anyway Ioften come here, because I already purchase 1 year plan, but now, I'm so tired of listening only self development things. Of course self development things are good things, I agree with that. But this app should change their name SELF DEVELOPMENT things like that. I mean, the contents are so cofocused on self development. The contents are so monotonous. I don't usually upload my review on here, but I just stop by here and upload my review just after stop listening self development book again.

Doesn’t make sense

I have this app on my IPAD and my phone, but it does not sync across devices. I really don’t see why not. Given then times, you think that would be a given. Disappointed.

Very one sided content curation

2
I looked to this app to find a fast way of reading synthesized ideological, psychological, or business minded thought from both sides of the political spectrum. As an independent I was interested in reading to understand some of the roots of our modern ideas that have lead us to this point. What I found was a very one sided curation of books that almost all swing towards an extreme progressivism. That is okay if you are willing to acknowledge it, but don’t pretend to be an unbiased body of knowledge! I gave two stars because I was very disappointed by this, but the app is well built out and has a lot of potential.

DO NOT GO PAST THE TRIAL

There’s not that many inserting books here and trust me this app gets boring quickly. They charge $99.99\year and they do it yearly because you’ll realize after a month that almost their entire catalogue is boring and everyone would probably cancel after that. There are some interesting reads, but for the most part the books they have are dull. History of rain. You serious?

Waste of time and money

Reading summaries is not the same as reading the real thing, Blinkist will not help you retain any of the information you wish to absorb. Also it’s so overpriced and offers AWFUL customer service
