Ratings and Reviews
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 articles, however many are over a hundred pages long, which makes it extremely awkward to use without the ability to bookmark where you got up to.
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.
