  • Love it!

    It’s the bee’s knee’s
  • Not impressed and their billing is ridiculous

    By Orangemud
    I’m a huge fan of audiobooks, but these extremely short pieces do not have enough content to be worth it. To top it off, their billing will get you. Cost me $100 which I new I was on a free trial but understood that I’d have to choose a paid plan once over, not automatically be billed like most apps do. Tricky process to steal $$, shady and do not recommend. What a crappy business strategy. Went from “it’s ok but not for me” to angry from bad billing practices.
  • Interesting research

    By Get the Houston Opera Company recording instead
    But don’t expect one answer or opinion about popular subjects. Many multifaceted opinions are presented. Very nice format.
  • Brilliant

    By Dmerhi
    Brilliant life-changing app. Incredible
  • Predatory free trial

    By PBAlpineProduct
    The app sets the automatic subscription to annual and charges you the full balance on the first date. This is an incredibly predatory practice.
  • Great Tool!

    By tysmithydsv
    I love this tool! This has helped me look from the outside in. To view through different eyes!!!
  • Perfect for those that are dyslexic

    By The Insipid
    I have been teaching myself for as long as I can remember. The issue is that I often learn what I want not what I need. Blinkist pushes me to read/listen to things I wouldn’t, on top of the things I love. This is the single, most powerful app on my phone.
  • So little time so much I want know

    By 2many_interests
    Great for learning in a time crunched schedule. Love flexibility between audio or reading choice for every “book”.
  • Great ideas!

    By jgalquinn
    This book has the keys to change. Great read.
  • More Marketing than Substance

    By nyc stud 87
    Remember Cliffs Notes? You read the Cliffs Notes hoping to get a B without reading the book. This is not that. I listened to a number of books I own. With this app you would probably get a F maybe a D at best. Feels more like a marketing attempt to get people to buy the books than actually educate you.
