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.

Enjoy our platform without any ads, and with the freedom to cancel anytime.

The first month of Blendle Premium (available in The Netherlands only) is free, and €9,99 thereafter. You will be billed automatically each month through your iTunes account at confirmation of your purchase. There is no commitment, you can cancel anytime.

Your Blendle Premium subscription automatically renews unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period. Your iTunes account will be charged at the same price for renewal, as stated above, within 24-hours prior to the end of the current period. You can manage your subscriptions and/or turn off auto-renewal by visiting your iTunes Account settings after purchase.

In the United States and Germany, Blendle is only available on a pay-per-article basis. You can top-up your virtual wallet and only pay for what you’ve read. If you don’t like a particular story, there’s a button to ask for an immediate refund.

Good, could be better

I’m generally pleased with the quality of articles, although I wish there were a wider assortment at times. I like having one place to find articles of interest from different sources, and the appearance is good, so it’s a nice reading experience. My biggest frustration is topping up my balance. Despite what the faq’s say, there is NOT a “Wallet” menu option that allows me to add funds within the app. I always have to go to the website & log in when my account runs low. I have checked, and I have the most updated version of the app, so I’m not sure why the faq’s claim there’s a way to do this when there isn’t.

It’s here!!!

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!

Great news source

I’ve been using Blendle since it was in beta stage and I love it. Read articles from most major newspapers and magazines by paying a small per article fee (most articles are 25 cents). Blendle has a very generous refund policy; if you accidentally click on an article or if you start reading and change your mind, you get full refund. This is the best multiple source news app that I’ve found using micropayments.
