    Installed this app about a year ago and uninstalled it because I didn’t want to pay for it! Turns out they’ve been charging me for membership ever since I added my credit card info to the AppStore!! I definitely did not even approve of this!! ):<

    I was so excited when I saw this app and what it offered. I like learning about everything and this app seemed perfect for me. However, I was sorely disappointed to find out I had to pay to get the full benefit of it and even more that the free version offers so little access. I’m still not decided if it’s worth the money to get info that I can easily find myself for free online. The free services should be expanded even if for a limited time so people can get a better feel for how great the app appears to be and actually be convinced to pay for more access, but the very limited info available in free version is just not convincing me to spend my money here. Too bad.

    My girlfriend downloaded the game for the free trial and didn’t quit or tell me about the 70 dollar charge that was on the way. Okay I got screwed and paid the 70. I didn’t log in once to play all year and couldn’t find a way to quit it so now you guys are charging my card another year and I don’t have 70 on the card so I can’t update any apps until this issue is taken care of. I don’t want another year as I didn’t want the first year. You have emailed me for three months to pay or risk chance of losing the service. Please cancel my service
  • Love this app

    Once you subscribe for a year, it automatically renews despite efforts to cancel. Frustrating!!!!
  • Waste of time

    Don’t waste your time. The information in here is nothing more than what you can get from free google searches. Hardly even an interactive app. Unless you consider word search puzzles interactive. Don’t waste your money or your time.

    By the critic that counts
    The only problem with this app is you're only allowed to give it 5 stars. If you love info, self improvement, tutorials, then this app is for you. In addition to the amazing knowledge, it's extremely user friendly and offers intermittent questions on some formats to see if you're comprehending the video. In conclusion to underscore my opening statement, I would give this app 10 stars!
  • I have so many fun facts now!
