  • Terrible and a scam

    The book summaries are terrible - use at your own risk because they do not capture the main points of the books at all. Clearly AI summaries that majorly miss the point. Also they took my money for a YEARLY subscription before the end of the day on my last trial day and refused to refund my money even though I immediately cancelled. Must be the only way such a terrible app can make money.
  • Blinks cannot be read any more - Only chapter titles appear

    Very disappointing. This bug needs fixing.
  • Highlights are broken

    The new single page layout is broken. It’s also bad. When I select “read”, I don’t want audio controls taking up the bottom quarter of the screen. Highlights are no longer shown (still show on web though). I also feel quality has gone down with AI generation being very obvious with no human editing.
  • Very useful to listen to books

    It is any easy way to listen to books and then decide if you want to take your reading a step further by buying it. The points presented are good and gives you enough information to understand the points and concepts.
  • If it ain’t broke…

    The latest update killed the UX that I loved. Clean and useful with neat pagination. Now it’s one long page. I hope whoever was responsible for it reverses their disastrous decision.
  • The app doesn’t work properly

    I’ve had to delete and reinstall the app multiple times because the search function almost never works and nothing I’ve saved to my list actually shows up despite showing that I have 15 items saved. Probably going to request a refund.
  • It’s Pretty Good but the book selection is lacking

    Overall I do like the app and service. I thought it would be like listening to podcasts but it’s different…. I need to be more actively engaged in the process than listening to podcasts. I’m not sure why. Two things that bother me: listening to the person/voice read and speak to me becomes boring. It’s not as engaging as a podcast. And, every time someone recommends a book or I discovered a book recommendation online and then search for it in Blinkist it is not available. I’m not sure where Blinkist derives its selection of books but it’s not a great selection.
  • New format ruins the reading experience

    The new formatting on the iPad is unreadable now. What were they thinking with this? Reading with full screen margins is a nightmare. Not only that, it appears to no longer work with Apple Pencil. This is unacceptable. If these changes are permanent then I will have to cancel my subscription.
