May work better for others

Overall, I really like the app! But, the price was too high for something I don't use that often. If you're dedicated to improving your study techniques, this app may suit you better than I.

Worth the Investment

Although, the cost might scare some people away, I do believe that it doesnt hurt to try the free trial. It really provides a genius way of summarizing and giving a condensed version of a lesson or book. Its definitely worth the investment!!

Worth It Overall

I would highly recommend Blinkist because it best provides an overall theme of a book. I haven't used Blinkist for long, but ever since I got it, it has helped me a great deal. It may not be free, but the best things never are.

Costly, but does it's job

I definitely think any student who needs or wants to study fast should use this app, but in my opinion, the price was too high for something I didn't use often enough. I retained some information, but it wasn't great at being interactive and making me want to engage. Still give it a try, see if it's for you, because I know that this has helped a lot of people I know.

An app worth trying

As someone with cognitive problems that cause trouble focusing, I find this app helpful and pretty cool. I wish it were completely free but I wish that of most things that aren't, and I understand why it isn't. I think it's worth taking a look at for the average student, particularly if they have courses heavy on reading.

Costs money but good nonetheless

It may cost a bunch, but it is really helpful to those who are really busy during the day and do not have that much time to study. It is very efficient and helpful.


Very modern to help someone study and make great college sources valuable


I have heard this does cost but it is really helpful for students who just don't have time to balance it all. You can quickly skim and learn the important events or lessons in a book.

LOVE this - incredibly helpful and time saving.

I’m a full time student with a 16-hr / week internship and a 5-10 hr / week job to pay bills. I have learned the art of skimming well. But with Blinkist I save even MORE time for myself. I’m a much more audio learner too, so the option to listen to summaries has changed my reading experience. Thank you!

Nice tool

Though useful, it does cost money. The 7 days free trial can give you a head start and a good feel of the application.
