The Ecosia iOS app uses Ecosia Search as its default search engine so you can plant trees while browsing the web. Planting trees is good for the planet, people and the climate. Trees create fertile forests, healthy communities and a strong local economy.

Ratings and Reviews
I really want to like this app
Honestly, there should be more apps like this. Apps like Ecosia can really help conserve our planet’s resources. However, this concept alone is keeping this app on my home screen. From a UI standpoint, Ecosia is a watered-down version of Google. Simple functions like refreshing the page require you to press an extra button (a solution I actually admire but is not very efficient). And what I dislike the most is that certain links that work on any other browser out there do not work on Ecosia. This is extremely frustrating.
Many things about this app need to be fixed. Simply taking inspiration from the Google browser would really help improve this app, and I feel that many more people would download it if it were improved. Regretfully, I probably won’t use this app a lot until its problems are resolved (right now, it’s just not practical to use), but I really, really hope this app is improved on.
Fantastic searching at
Overall this is a great app I recommend it to all my friends it goes to a great cause and does not go to a greedy corporations my Google or Yahoo. Whenever a Google something and brings up probably three ads and the money that the ads paid to be there go to a forest planting organization. It takes about 70 searches to plant one tree and I have planted probably 25 trees over the last year I had the app. So it's not like you're going to plan and tire for us but you are doing a major part for the ecosystem. The apps does not seem to crash I've never had a problem with it it is as easy to Google things as Google app. The only thing I do not like is I don't think there is a search history or I just cannot seem to find it. Overall I would recommend it to anyone, so give it a try.
Great for the most part
I genuinely like using this on my phone. However. There are some problems with the computer version. First off, for some reason, while using it on the computer, one of my old google themes was enabled. I had not even searched for google themes, and it appeared in the background. Ecosia was still the search engine, however. Oh well, I took it out and continued. A few minutes later, I went to look for one of my bookmarks, which I had organized into folders when I was still using google, and I saw that they were completely out of order! They were not in the folders I had placed them in before, and I was a bit upset. I feel like the extension was undoing my settings. Anyways, there are plenty of good reasons to use the app, since it helps to plant trees and everything, but the computer version seems to have various issues, which I do not understand.
