Fabulous

Ever pick up a book and think I’d love to read this but how am I going to find the time? Or make the time only to discover that it really isn’t giving you what you were looking for? I’ve just read so many blinks in this app and it has made it so much easier to find authors and content that I really relate to and want to explore further. I set aside time each day to read two or three blinks and it is really helping me shape my move into running my own business and improving my quality of life. I am now able to expose myself to many more authors and content effectively and expediently and choose those which are most beneficial for me. Love it.

Misleading but a great idea

I found this app to be extremely misleading which has lead to my low rating.

I saw the app advertised in a game I play and it grabbed me straight away, the concept is fantastic! And to be honest the ‘blink’ I have consumed since downloading was amazingly in depth and so interesting.

The part I didn’t like was the app is promoted as a Free App but all content inside is paid, although it does mention you can access the full library for a subscription I would expect more than one ‘blink’ in the free daily section given the vast content available. Granted there is a very high chance that I will eventually purchase a full subscription, but two things for sure are that 1. I will not be doing so from a single ‘blink’ I will make an educated decision based on content relevance and interest and the utilisation I get from the app. And 2. I don’t intend to do so at a up front payment of $125ish dollars.

Hoping more features are offered to free users in the future and better options for subscribers so as not to be hit with a years worth of fees upfront, that is non refundable. As a consumer I tend to prefer subscriptions that are paid for on a ‘monthly as used’ basis or even at times a month in advance so that if I don’t see value in maintaining the subscription I don’t loose out financially (at least not an overly large amount)

Developer Response ,

Hi there. I'm really sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for your feedback. I will pass it on to the marketing team for consideration. Please note that we do have a monthly subscription plan, that you can purchase via our website or through the app. If you have any further questions please write to us at support@blinkist.com. Best, Team Blinkist
