I used to be able to listen to anything. Now it seems I can’t listen to anything without upgrading. An additional $100 within 3 months to do what I used to be able to do and I’m only 5 months in to my previous year subscription for about the same price. Loved the product. Unhappy with new subscription upgrade required to listen. Feel this upgrade should have happened after my first subscription ended at a minimum.

I love how easy it is to use. I love all of the choices there is, it’s been a God send for me. Karen M

Pretty helpful app!

You can go thru the key ideas of a book in minutes! Listen while driving (or simply when you’re doing something else) and you can read to reinforce when sitting down. What I don’t like is that I don’t really see Christian books here, or they get overshadowed by everything else.

An instrument to streamline relevant information

The luxury of being able to read and annotate lots of books with brilliant applicable topics without getting bogged down in the details of reading cover to cover, saves up so much free mental energy.

The App is brilliant, effective and educational !

Move at your own peril

Another health video to remind me I’m out of shape ? No, actually you will find hope ( you still will have to do the work), but you will find simple, practical suggestions that will self correct some of your poor habits that may be limiting your life expectancy and enjoyment. Painless and practical, set aside the time, you may actually want to live longer in good health, it beats the alternative

Books I want to read

I would love to read more books about filmmaking. Please consider it, thank you!

Sketchy business plan

Any app that charges you $100 after 7 days is sketchy. Makes me think that they make a lot of money from people who just forget to cancel in time and Apple is notorious for making it difficult to get a refund. How about charging a monthly fee if someone doesn’t cancel, so they aren’t on the hook for a hundred bucks in a mere seven days. I generally avoid free trials like plague. This one is even worse with $100 on the line.

I’ve enjoyed this app since I first downloaded it. I will keep it on my phone and pad always. The construction of the app interface is super.

Simple and life changing!

I'm able to learn from books I've put off reading because it takes so long to put ideas into action. If I want to change my habits, I can listen to a pertinent book for 15 minutes and have a path to move forward. The Blinkist version is simple, entertaining and through its unique presentation, the ideas and steps stick in my mind. A subscription would make an outstanding gift as well!
