    This app is awful unless you want to pay for a subscription. Can't cancel it through the app. Should be free like the site but is not worth the time. Just use the website
  • Doesn’t work!

    By iceicejick
    I would love to pay to start using the app but every time I go to buy it says “no products available” and I can’t select either subscription option. Please fix!
  • It’s honestly great

    By Aillito
    It’s amazing for me being a high school student I get caught up in other things and sometimes I just need a quick summary, but there is one flaw you can copy text sometimes my friends fall behind too and they’re not privileged like me to be able to pay for this and still since I can’t copy I can still screenshot so please just add coping text
  • Incomplete

    Not too many titles
  • Hate

    By smcfamily
    If you want to use the app you have to pay even though in the App Store it says its free. It’s not!!!
  • The best study resource

    By Alls❤️
    I cannot recommend this app enough! Spark notes is extremely helpful for when it's 11 PM and you need to know certain information, if you need to prep for a test, or if you're just having a hard time identifying something within the text. The subscription is defiantly worth it.
  • A mediocre app for a price

    By Nicely-kind
    My school work is important, this is like buying textbooks again; I can't do this. I would rather go on the web to see the same thing that's on this app FOR FREE.
  • The site is free, why can't the app be?

    By Common Highschooler
    I love spark notes and was happy when I saw a banner saying they have an app. I use the mobile site and it works quite well and doesn't cost money. Being the logical human I am I thought: "Oh it is basically going to be a smoother version of the website!" But it turns out you need a membership to use the app. It's pretty cheap, but not worth a penny because the mobile site exists as well, and doesn't have any big problems.
  • The app is terrible

    By Tanelmo123
    I saw this app and I knew that this is the same thing I used on my computer and I got really excited because I needed to write a paper and this WEBSITE has helped me before but once I downloaded the app they told me to get a membership. I thought this was just for something extra I can do but it turns out I can't do anything without the membership. I am really disappointed in the app. But the website is great, I recommend the website because it is free. The only thing is that it makes my computer lag a little bit but other than that it is great.
  • A Membership is Ridiculous

    By MooMoondy
    I downloaded the app as an alternative for using the website but i needed java plug ins and my iphone cant do that. Soon as i saw the subscription payment, i thought this was wack. It doesnt make sense. Make the website free but not the app??? And i was only just going to use this app once for lang so just thinking about a subscription is really useless in my case.
