Blinkist: 15min Book Insights - Latest Quality Issues

I was billed for the full year before my trial date was up and so , while pending ,I cancelled the subscription. The billing went through regardless. Now , even if it is a good app, they have made an enemy of me. If I can't get them to reimburse me... I will make sure there is no money in that account when it 'falls due next year!

Every 5 min the app stops and does not load further

great works reduced to 24 minutes
If you compare audiobooks on Blinkist with real audiobooks or books, it is noticeable that, for example, 12 hours of originals with several hundred pages are shortened to 24 minutes. This is disrespectful to the authors and their intellectual works.

Tried buying the premium from the free trial. It took the credit card information. I still can't read all the books. My email account I signed up with is full. I entered a new login email but it still shows the old email address. Under settings it shows my cell phone number as unavailable. Why? I do like the free version for getting a book a day. Some days I like the book other days I just delete it. I like learning new things. Please help me fix this app on my phone. I have an Android.

Hi, idea is good, but I would like you to make your app compatible with Android Auto - then you probably get my subscription ;-) Edit: lack of Android Auto support is terrible. And also no direct connection to Google Home systems provided? So your product is really quite good, but the software is really holey :/ Update 2 years later - Chromecast works, Android Auto still doesn't. Really a pity although the symbol is present in the car...

The app is fun, but Blinkist still has a lot to do, as only about 5000 books are available. All the books I was looking for have not yet been uploaded or read.

The app idea is brilliant, but the corresponding app is a joke. The controls are poorly programmed and when listening again to already finished tracks, the player starts at the last track (blink) instead of starting the book all over again. What were the developers thinking?
