Terrible support

I had an old Blinkist account using an old expired email address. Last year I was using Blinkist basic account with my new email address. I received a promotion and decided to buy the Blinkist premium. Unfortunately, the processing used my old email address. I have spent many hours and a dozen correspondences to simply update my account to my current email address. The quirky Blinkist website Does not allow me to change my email address. It doesn’t even recognize my email address as a valid email address. The support staff help is terrible. The silence is deafening.

Saved items auto save text but not audio

I saved 63 items and I was trying to download them all for my travel on my iPad so I could read them on the plane. The audio is cool but I’m a faster reader and like the highlight option. I didn’t realize that the text is automatically saved when I save the item! This is an amazing feature that I recommend Blinkist call out. (Maybe a “text saved” icon vs “audio saved” option?) Audio download wise, I tried download one item at a time without issue. Trying to download multiple items at a time fails 90% of the time. Trying to download all the items at the same time fails 100% of the time.

Good luck cancelling their subscription

I can’t get a working link to do this. Colin says they can not cancel it except on the app or website. The material was supposed to have science and tech and the selections are very surface materials so I’m learning nothing. Disappointing and so far a subscription scam

Bad business

I cancelled my subscription well in advance. I was charged an outrageous $99.99! I now cannot make my car payment because a huge portion of money got randomly taken out of my account. I have already contacted the business and shown proof of my account and still haven’t gotten a refund! I am very upset! This seems to be a recurring problem with this company. I do not recommend anyone uses this app at all.

Wonderfully Usefull

This app has forever changed my life! When I annotate/write, this helps tremendously with the notes and takeaways from the books I read. It’s also super useful when I want to listen to a book at the gym.
