Editors’ Notes

Who has time to read these days? We do! That’s thanks to Blinkist’s brilliant summaries of top nonfiction books. Not only are the articles packed with insight into business, culture, and self-improvement, they’re designed with busy schedules in mind. Seamless switching between text and narration is super-useful on the go, and finding topics couldn’t be simpler.

So worth it!

I was hesitant to subscribe to another thing with a monthly payment, but this is so totally worth it. My attention span is ridiculous, and I don’t usually find the time to read the books that i want to bc I’m in grad school and have so much reading to do!! It’s also really hard for me to decide what to read, so I waste a lot of available time...I realize this is the most first-world thing, I’m a little ashamed. In any case, I didn’t hold out a lot of hope that this would help, but it really has been awesome. There are so many titles on here that I’ve wanted to read, and the way the info is broken down is good info, makes sense, and the whole thing is very user friendly. Obviously I still plan to read full books as well, but this has helped me with that also bc of the “summary screen” at the beginning of each reading/book which lists specifically who the book is best for - and that has saved me from buying some of those that I thought sounded interesting but were really aimed at something else. Definitely one of my best subscriptions!

Be careful! They take your $100 and won’t refund

I thought I’d give this 7 day free period a go and see why it was about. I unfortunately had to leave town and got busy that week and didn’t get a chance to really look into it. I had it scheduled in my diary that day to cancel the renewal but arrived home a few hours too late it seems. As soon as the week expired I got charged $100 and put on an annual plan. No more than 2 hours after this happened, I contacted Blinkist and asked for a refund as I simply hadn’t seen that I’d be signed up for a $100 annual plan if I missed the cancel date. Most of these kinds of apps are monthly at worst and I would have swallowed the monthly fee If I’d missed the cancel date. They told me that they couldn’t do anything and suggested I try iTunes. I’ve contacted iTunes 3 times now and have not had one real response other than an auto response stating it’s not available for refund. I’m furious as I simply can’t afford it right now and you should always have a window after payment for something that as it’s simply a use as you go type of arrangement. Now I don’t even want to use it because it’s left such a bad taste in my mouth. If it’s such a great product, then they shouldn’t have to prey on those that forget to cancel their trial on time to then charge them $100. Pretty unhappy.

Developer Response ,


Hi, I am sorry to hear that the charge took you by surprise, when you initially subscribed, this triggered a 7 day trial, as you didn't opt out from this, the full annual amount was charged. Should you wish to submit a refund request please get in touch with Apple support directly once more (via phone to avoid automated responses), as we are able to offer refunds only for purchases made via our website. All the best, Blinkist Team
