Can’t use. Keeps crashing

1
App keeps crashing can’t use it.

So what’s the big hurry?

4
I really like this app! About the quizzes though, I enjoy them but would like to be able to turn off the timer on them; it doesn’t need to be a race! I would like to be able to fully read and understand the questions before answering. I find that most of my wrong answers are the result of a misread question or hurried answer. My interest here is to learn, not to stress myself out! Please make the timer optional. Thanks!

The app needs an update

2
The app feels abandoned in its current state, it has potential but it needs to me modernized and cleaned up. The screen size is a joke, and the popup ads are ridiculously annoying. There should be some sort of purchase able ad-free version, but make the app more user friendly first devs.

Old app, images not loading

1
This app is old, really old. Pictures aren’t loading and pages are loading slowly. I’ve tried different devices, installing/reinstalling, different networks. Update this thing and let’s keep going. I’m a paying customer.

Need info

3
Have both the iPad/iPhone britannica for 14.99 and the concise online full encyclopedia for $80.00 per year. What I need to know is, do I still have to pay separate bills for these services or can I drop the 14.99 iPad/iPhone per year and still get britannica online across all my platforms for $80.00

Good app but could use a minor upgrade

4
I use my iPad Pro for note taking and research for fun, and this app is a great resource for topics of interest. However I wish this app could better support the split screen multitask, as apps hover over the Britannica articles instead of sharing the screen which can be cumbersome to move the apps across the screen while note taking. I hope maybe this can be an adjusted but overall I enjoy what this app has to offer!

It’s time for a refresh

2
Apparently Britannica has forgotten it’s loyal customers and owe us an updated version at least compatible with newer iPhones screens. It has been over four years since the last update.
By Abercrombie_1892

What am I paying for?

1
“Facts matter” was one of Brittanica’s bylines, but does comprehensiveness of articles, or accurate links? The twelve tribes of Israel pulls up maybe a tenth of the information Wikipedia gives, and links to the individual tribes pulls up scant data as well, while the link to Simeon pulls up a short summary of Simeon the Great, tsar of the Bulgarian empire. I really expect more from Brittanica.

U.S. Presidents not downloading

4
This is a fun app to download. It has a variety of stuff to read and learn about. However, when I tried to read an article about a U.S. President (e.g. Jefferson, Grant, Kennedy) it said “article downloading”. I waited for at least 5 minutes, but did not download. So is there some kind of technical issue? Perhaps some articles are updating?

Great Content, Dated Interface

3
Content is great and seems to be similar to what’s available on Britannica.com from the samples I’ve searched for. The subscription price is also very reasonable compared to a full Britannica.com subscription, so it’s a more affordable way to access the content. However, the app has a dated feel. It’s decent on the iPad but boxed in on the iPhone XS. Britannica does need to release an update optimizing it for newer screen sizes. I’d even be willing to pay slightly more per year (maybe $20) for more frequent improvements.
