  • Into Thin Air

    When I was reading a book I didn’t understand I used Sparknotes to get through the book. Very helpful!
  • Don’t get

    Didn’t help me at all.
  • No Fear Literature???

    By mendoisa001
    I downloaded the app and paid for it so that i could access the No Fear Literature that it has on the website, but it’s not on the app?? It was kind of disappointing because that’s what i really wanted to use the app for :(
  • I'm so disappointed.

    The other day I was talking to my guidance counselor about my summer reading and the best way to review for the quiz on the book that my school requires us to take. she suggested this and i downloaded it here to my phone to use it here and it tells me i need a subscription. i don't have any money that isn't already used towards other school supplies. this is ridiculous.
  • .....

    Don’t bother. This app is subscription based. Pretty dumb since the website is FREE. Would give this zero stars if I could.
  • Paid subscription......

    By mlinder13655
    It’s a free website, yet they want you to pay for a severely limited app.....enough said. Would have given it no stars if I could.
  • Why do I have to pay?

    By ryan3419
    When I discovered there was an app for sparknotes, I immediately downloaded it. To my inconvience, everything on the app you had to pay for. If the website is free then using the app should be too.
  • The website is way better

    By Lynx_5555
    I don’t get why the website would allow us to access the notes and what they say for free while the app does not let us do anything unless we pay for it. I liked the website so I thought I should get the app but I could not do anything. The website is better than the app
  • 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.
