bad reviews and comments

What's so bad about Encyclopaedia Britannica? You can click on several hightlighted or bold print words (links) that will take you to other sites that have to do with whatever you're looking up. Also, clicking at the bottom of pages gives you other links to click on such as images/pictures that have articles attached also! Lots of free information! At no cost!

Like so many others, I too purchased the $14.99 year subscription. Like so many others, I was able to view one article before being asked to purchase it again. The money had no problem being debited from my account but yet the app seems to have a problem granting me access to something I purchased. This is completely ridiculous for the problem to be this much of a widespread problem and needs to be fixed.

Black screen on Windows 10

I installed this app on Windows 10 Technical Preview (Build 9860). The initial interface is properly displayed, but when I attempt to view any article, the screen goes completely black.

In-app Payment System Faulty

I just paid for a 1 year subscription in the app. It gave me access to the article I was on. After I tried to look at another article, it told me I had to subscribe again. Seriously just stole $15.

Great!!!!!!! We use this app nearly everyday. Very informative but it's Britannica, we expected nothing but the best.

many problems with site

Just paid for this service with credit card. DId not ask me to register and I cannot log onto the site from my desktop. I signed onto the service with my laptop which I can log onto the site with. I cannot log onto the site on my desktop and there is no way I can find to register a account on my desktop without paying the yearly fee again. This setup with Britannica has to many issues. I will try and call them but for not the process is flawed

Great content

Nice layout and features, and content of course. Not crazy about paying for a subscription, but then again it was a team of paid professionals who put this together as opposed to Wikipedia's model. There is some value to that, and it's a great bargain compared to the $1,000s I'd have had to pay for a Britannica when I was a kid.

Better price than Apple

I had this on my iPad and found it incredibly useful for schoolwork, but was stuck with the monthly subscription. I thoroughly enjoy the fact that here I can get a full yearly subscription for a significant discount, just over a $1 a month is awesome.

No luck with this purchase

I purchased a subscription to this app but was only able to access the app on one of my Windows 8 laptops. I have an additional laptop that I use for on the go. I contacted both Encyclopedia and Microsoft and neither was able to resolve the issue. They blames each other for the issue. I have requested a full refund so I am waiting to hear back from someone.
