Incredible in every way

I’ve used Ecosia for around 2 months now, and I have to say it is fabulous. The general concept of planting trees is amazing and gives you a sense of pride and satisfaction every time you search for something. I love how Ecosia is so clear and honest with its users unlike many other companies and search engines (not giving names). The results are great and I would say close to being just as good as google, however, from time to time, I have to quickly search using google if I can’t find the answer I’m looking for. What I think could be improved is that Ecosia could put the most relevant answer to a search query in a box at the top just as google does. This saves time so that we don’t need to press links and can just get the answer to our searches. Overall, if you’re reading this, Ecosia is really worth putting as your main search engine as: it helps the environment massively, gets more jobs for people, has nearly as good results as Google (and definitely better results than other search engines), shows you what they do with their profits, respects your privacy (which is not the case with many search engines) and is just an outstanding search engine.

Really good 👍💚

I really like using this app. It’s great and I love being able to know I’m making a difference with every search I make, even if it’s only a small one. I’ve also signed in on my computer without getting the app and I think it’s better because I don’t have to click on the app to search because when I go onto safari it comes up instead of google and as I’ve got into the habit of clicking on google automatically when I need to search something I forget to click on Ecosia instead. Hope that made sense. However, it’s really good and the only other thing is to be able to use other devices with the same account. So I really recommend it! Let’s plant more trees and save the planet together 🌍 😌

Good cause but needs work

I really want to switch to using it as my main browser, but there are too many inconveniences with how the app is laid out.

I like to read things online, but when I close the app it doesn't have the page I am on saved. It will have a page I was on 10-15 pages ago open. This is frustrating when you just want to pick up where you left off: not tap through chapters trying to remember if you read that one.

Another issue related to the one above is that, because it does not open the most recent page, I have finished reading a book, moved on to a new one entirely - only to open the app and see I'm back on the book I already finished. This is particularly annoying because on the website I use there is a "randomise" button to find random books: so I have to re-find whatever book I was on.

There appears to be no history. All of the issues above could be solved if I could at least just go into my history and click the latest link: but I can't. It also seems to rewrite the history on a page, so that if you try to go back to find what you were on before it loaded; it will take you through different pages from your search history.

I want to use this app for everything, but as it stands it just doesn't compete with already existing browsers. It would probably function better as an extension on already-built browsers, or simply needs to step its game up.
