  • Awful App

    by Bubba bunny

    I had initial difficulties in getting this app to open properly. It was frustrating but their tech support was awesome and were able to resolve my issue. App content is great!

  • I'm learning stuff I've struggled with for years

    by Juangato

    Expensive for an app, but it's really a book

  • Beautifully Put-Together

    by vinnccee

    If Philosophy is your thing— this eBook is well worth the price. It's extraordinarily comprehensive in covering the most studied philosophers from the Axial Age to the 21st century.
