From the team that created SparkNotes back in the distant past, long before iPhones even existed, comes the LitCharts app, the best way to save time, stress less, learn more, and get better grades in English class.

The LitCharts app now includes over 1000 guides to every book you need to read for school. Plus, it has tons of helpful time-saving features nobody else offers:

•Automatic updating: We add dozens of new guides per month and each one gets immediately added to the app.

•Always ad free: No ads to distract your reading, track you, or kill your battery.

•Deeper understanding: Our summary and analysis appear side-by-side, meaning you get instant understanding of every plot point.

•The perfect quotes: Our quotes are sortable by character, chapter, and theme, so you can always quickly find just what you need.

•Theme tracking: With our visual theme tracking, you’ll be able to follow (and explain) how themes develop throughout each book.

•Quick-reference: Easily jump between summary, analysis, characters, themes, quotes, and symbols. Get a complete understanding, easily.

•Speed: Never again wait in agony for that page to load as precious seconds tick away…

•LitCharts A+: For the first time, LitCharts A+ members can log in and enjoy LitCharts A+ perks right in the app, including Favorites, unlimited offline access, and detailed explanations of every one of the 20,000+ quotes we cover.

Millions of students are getting better grades by reading LitCharts every month. Come join us!

Trust me you want this!

This app is absolutely amazing- any bugs in the last version have been fixed so the app is up and running perfectly now. It is so useful, it helped me get an A* in GCSE English literature and is now my go-to app for A Level. It has almost every possible book or play you could think of on here and it can be used offline as well. It is DEFINITELY worth getting.
