Cannot Access my Subscription!

I’ve been a long time yearly subscriber to SparkNotes for $4.99 a year. However, I just noticed today that I am no longer able to access my previously purchased titles in the app. I contacted customer support with an email, and they promptly replied and gave me a bogus answer saying that maybe I used a different email address when making my purchases. Well, that’s not the case. They are simply ripping people off and should be ashamed of themselves! This app is useless, worthless, and a scam. Avoid it at all costs! By the way, I promptly canceled my yearly subscription before I began composing this review. Get your ethics together, SparkNotes! Quick ripping people off! And how about refunding me the $4.99 you taken from me and for which you have provided no content or access. That’s what a real business would do.

Fantasy App for lazy unappreciated snobby students!!

This app is a FANTASTIC App for lazy unappreciated snobby students who take education for granted and fail to take advantage of the the English literature stories and become knowledgeable while helping them with passing the subject!!
Seriously!!! How is $5 a year expensive!!! So sad the gum chewed by the very students who commented so negativity on this app as being expensive and not affordable is much more expensive than the price of this well put together app. Yet paying $5/year for an educational app a pinch got them?!!! I mean seriously?!!!$5. How is that expensive? So sad and pathetic. Only if they could fathom the hard work and dedication of what it takes to design an app and the time it with all the valuable content it took to make it!!!
So sad. :-(

This app is a fabulous and informative educational value pack for all students and none students alike. Helping them catch up on the English literature while enjoying to tap into the English lit, becoming a learned educated person. Trust me try it. It won't hurt or bite you!

I could not use

I love the website, it’s so easy to use and helps me study and catch up on missed reading. However the app is much harder to use. I got it to read summaries of a book I’m reading in school, but I had to pay for a trial in order to use it. I could not open a chapter unless I signed up for a trial. If I didn’t, the chapter summary would simply not open. I understand that a free trial would be necessary for the creators, but I couldn’t use it once.

Long story short, I deleted the app and went to the website. I don’t recommend this app, but the website is much better.
