  • Family Sharing

    By KingJa'Corey
    Love the app but the Family Sharing is not working. I bought it on my son’s iPad but it keeps saying that it can’t “validate the receipt” when I try from my iPhone. Please assist with this problem. Thank you.
  • Login Problem

    By Limbuprithbi
    How can I login with Facebook? I have been logging in with Facebook on browsers but couldn’t in this app.
  • Update?

    By Arielito
    Will this app ever get updated?
  • Good, but...

    By David6895643
    Great content. Please get rid of the persistent pop up box reminding me of the quiz feature. Please get rid of the slow animated page turns and permit continuous scrolling.
  • Great but needs improvement

    By Spark3k
    Please add: 1) Paging continuously through alphabetised articles. Like the real book. 2) Font size changes 3) Full width images 4) Word select & search or lookup 5) Random quizzes 6) Quizzes with randomised questions from different topics 7) Bookmarkable links to articles from quiz answers. 8) Full page articles. (hide menus) 9) Scroll mode in addition to page turn mode.
  • Great content!

    By Joshua***
    This has always been a great encyclopedia. Smart people writing well researched and thoughtfully edited articles. With the content now available, it is a joy to explore.
  • No off-line access

    By truthspeaks1
    Yes, it would require a large file to have all the features off-line. But since Britannica doesn't care to offer this feature, I don't care to give it more than one start.
  • Terrible

    By CupOfMorningJoe
    It keeps downloading itself every time I open iBooks and its design is stuck in 2012.
  • Spellcheck

    By Hosea Williams iii
    If only you had a spell check. I believe people would not use google and Wikipedia so much. To look for a word and know the correct spelling is hard for the average person. I would love to use your app because it is so much more accurate.
  • Kid safe!

    By Labz2
    My 8yr old loves to read about things and learn. I had a Wikipedia app on his iPad but realized you could do a lot of inappropriate searches and get images and all sorts of stuff that is not kid safe. This app however is very clean and very scientific (if he wanted to try and search something out of curiosity) tons of content for free and really cool fun features. Keep it up guys!
