Great but I wish it saved where I left off


*changed to 5 stars due to genuine, sincere reply by developer to reviewer* Exactly that. This app is awesome and provides a ton of resources; the only thing is I have to go through relocate where I was reading. Some of these are quite long and would be useful to have a save spot option or something like that. Other than that, I strongly recommend. Worth the $5.

Yes, you should own this app.


If you love philosophy as much as I do I highly recommend buying this app. For a small fee you will own a plethora of famous philosophers’ ideas both in original writing and explanations of them. Whether you teach philosophy at a college or are just somebody who enjoys reading, you will be glad you have this.

This app is a hidden gem

Luigi Granata

Great app with extremely accurate summaries of each philosopher and what their philosophies were. I like to read up on each philosopher before studying them for the philosophy courses I have to take.
