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.

I absolutely love this app!!

This app is amazing and I am eternally grateful to the person(s) who brought it to life. I really can’t find a flaw, and that is because this app is just so organized and abundant in accurate information. The only thing I can say is that more books should be added to the collection. Other than that, this app is on the right track in regards to meeting the needs of its users.

Amazing App!

If you don’t want to read a book, you should definitely get this app. It gives you detailed summaries and breakdowns of each chapter, and gives you the plot, characters, full book summary, and much more. I used to use this app on safari, but then i discovered that it had an app! This is very useful for any student, or adult! I 100% recommend!

Amazing app!

I have been using LitCharts for a decent amount of time and after exploring the LitCharts website I found out there was an app. I was pleasantly surprised because I have been using Google Docs to view LitCharts and I wanted a different way to look at the summaries. This app is great, and allows me to easily view all my LitCharts. Thanks you to all the great staff working at LitCharts.
