Nice app but requires subscription, so you pay for the app which has basic topline info but then you go to page 2 and get "want to continue reading? Get a $9.99/year subscription". Which isn't bad for a good encyclopedia and updates of content, just not what you expect when you pay for app. So kind of a paid trial. Beyond that it work well, looks good but it is a little slow as you cachein the index or days top 10.

Page turning is annoyingly slow and animated poorly. I personally prefer vertical scrolling rather than page turns. At least provide an option for the same. Otherwise, works stable.

I was super excited about getting this app, until I tried to browse the A-Z and The Popular Article sections. The app just closes in my Nokia Lumia 920. I hope this gets fixed soon, because I really want to give this app a 5 star rating. I'll change when it's fixed.

I grew up reading the junior set of Encyclopaedia Britannica with the red cover and remember enjoying every article I read. I even used it for researching projects we were given in school. Eventually I graduated to the adult version with the cross referencing volume and that was even more incredible. The app is very well presented and the interface is very easy to navigate. Love Britannica!

There are just too many issues with this app. There is a huge amount of wasted space at both the top and bottom of pages (I don't need to be constantly reminded I'm reading Britannica and the bottom icons are too large and can' be hidden) and the text does not go small enough. All this leads to is an unpleasant viewing experience. Lots of lateral swiping is really annoying. Text can not be copied.
