  • Love the website, hate the app

    By Mmaloneys
    This is an awesome website for studying and final exams, so i thought i’d go ahead and download the app. To my surprise i had to pay to do anything on the app. It’s not fair to make me pay for the app but then let others use the website for free and have unlimited boundaries. The app is supposed to have upgrades from the website and be easier to use but i’m this case it’s not. I wouldn’t recommend downloading this unless you are willing to pay (being a student i don’t really want to pay for something like this). Stick with the website.
  • Why pay when there’s no iPad version?

    By The Sidewinder Three-Thousand
    This is a great concept, but with no native iPad app it’s kinda useless for reading Shakespeare. If you want my $, get it together, SparkNotes.
  • Stupid Paywall

    Should be free like the website. Take this one star, stupid scammers
  • Website is better

    By Carlos S.C.
    Don't waste your time here the website is so much better on Google.
  • Greedy much?

    By Filip Čolović
    Literally nothing about this app justifies it being subscription-based, especially considering that all the information is available for free on the site. The app is actually decent but I'm giving it 1 star on principle because of the money-grabbing.
  • Ten star if I could...

    By The fact of awesome
    I love this app, I have to read Tom Sawyer for school. And it’s so confusing, but this app makes everything so much easier!!!! Thanks you so much SparkNotes!😍❤️❤️❤️
  • I Love the Website... Not the App

    By LampNugget
    The only reason I gave this app 3 stars was because I love the Sparknotes website. It’s free and it gives me all the information I need to study in an easy to understand format that makes memorizing important plot points easy. The largest problem with the app is that you have to a subscription to get to information that you could get on the website for free. Please remove the paywall and just make us watch a Game of War ad like many other apps.
  • App

    By Zackypp
    I don’t want to pay
  • Just use the website

    By Criticangry
    They want you to pay for an app membership when you can just use the website for free. Deleted and I'll never try this app again.
  • People stop being cheap

    By LUiS314
    First off you have an iPhone, second it’s 5 dollars per year! I love the app.
