Blendle gives you unparalleled access to the best journalism that’s out there. From the moment you wake up, until you’re ready to go to bed.
Follow New York Times reporters, every step of their way in revealing the truth. Read up on pop culture, fashion, and current affairs with Vanity Fair. Dive into the iconic covers of TIME Magazine, to understand the events that shape our world. Go beyond the headline, with award winning journalism from The New Yorker. Or be at the center of every trade, with The Wall Street Journal.
But you don’t have time to go over all of these newspapers and magazines yourself.
Finding great stories is what gets our human editors up in the middle of the night. They read everything. Front to back, with no room for clickbait. This leads to a daily hand-picked selection of articles, from a wide variety of sources.
Then, our algorithm works its magic. Combining the stories we feel everyone should read, with a personalized selection that’s just for you. We give you an explanation with each recommendation, to help you understand why a particular story matters.
Follow your curiosity, and flip through current and past issues of your favorite magazines. You could also search our entire archive, containing millions of articles.
In the Netherlands, Blendle is offered as a subscription, called Blendle Premium. Premium comes with so much more! Follow our signature Blendle Collections, featuring timeless pieces, all sorted by topic.
And since we know you’ve got places to go, you can listen to most of the articles too. Listen to them in the comfort of your own car, or during a nice run through the park. Always read by world-class narrators.
With Blendle, you support all of your favorite journalists too, so they can start working on their next great piece.

For years I’ve been wondering why newspapers won’t sell by-the-article access. I am a huge consumer of news and want to pay for journalism, but didn’t want to tie myself down to just one national paper. Problem solved! Adding money to your account is a little tedious but not too bad. And if you add $10, it’ll be awhile before you have to add more.
I would love to eventually be able to search for articles by title. But I’m so happy with the rest of the ap I don’t mind waiting!
Love this app - high quality journalism affordably
Sometimes I read the articles from the emailed daily digest; other times I search for a headline I saw on the internet in order to chip in the $0.50 or so for the content. Love being able to support multiple sources of journalism without being locked into a subscription with one.

Thanks JellyBeanne, good to hear you enjoy our app!
Super impressed so far
Incredibly simple and beautiful format... carefully selected articles. I pay for a couple newspapers, but this is a way to get some access to articles from other major publications. With an on demand format, it’s merely pennies for high quality journalism that you could spend hundreds on, and curated for free. Very innovative.
