Great

Love the app. Pay the money to lose the adverts. Dip into it daily and just keep digging deeper. The only downer is the search bar a third of the way from the top, just hanging in the middle of the picture?! Move it to the top and be done with it!

Excellent, but...

A really first class encyclopaedia which is very authoritative and entertaining. Somewhat adulterated recently by the new version, which now includes adverts. A backward step for such a worthy encyclopaedia, for the adverts are very distracting.

Shame it’s Offline only

I was hoping for something I could use on the Tube to work (no internet signal). Not for me I suppose.
