Introducing the SparkNotes app! Try it free for one month—once you’ve started your free trial, you’ll have instant access to all of our literature guides (nearly 600, with more coming soon) at your fingertips. To Kill a Mockingbird? Yep. Romeo and Juliet? Of course!

And there's more:

* Absolutely no ads!
* Full access on the go—works even when the internet doesn't, you can save your data!
* Quiz yourself: almost all titles have an interactive quiz
* Customize your text size and try out DARK MODE

The SparkNotes app requires an easy in-app subscription to get started. You’ll have the first month free to see why the SparkNotes app is the best way to study on your iPhone or iPod Touch. And to celebrate the launch, we’re offering special intro pricing: you can get all of our award-winning SparkNotes literature guides for either $.99 a month or $4.99 a year! It’s crazy.

Subscriptions allow you to view the full study guide content found within the app, and are available on both a monthly and a yearly basis. Your subscription will automatically renew—and your account will be charged—unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24 hours before the end of the current period. You can manage your subscriptions, and turn off auto-renewal, by going to your account settings after purchase.

Your support enables us to bring you the fastest, least distracting way to study, and we can’t wait to show you what’s coming next! Let us know what you think, and share your ideas, by using the feedback link in the app’s Settings menu.

I Love the Website... Not the App


The only reason I gave this app 3 stars was because I love the Sparknotes website. It’s free and it gives me all the information I need to study in an easy to understand format that makes memorizing important plot points easy. The largest problem with the app is that you have to a subscription to get to information that you could get on the website for free. Please remove the paywall and just make us watch a Game of War ad like many other apps.

Ten star if I could...
