Small flaw for mobile app 4/5
Khana academy is the best for studying but in some practices, the scroll picker menu for filling in the blanks for answers is not working. (It always closes when i try to choose one of the options).
Its Truly Beautiful 5/5
It's a truly beautiful thing what they have done. They've literally brought free real learning to anyone who has internet access. Yes we still have a long way to go in terms of free learning for everyone in the world, but this brings us a ton of steps closer. Since i've been using khan, my curiosity and motivation to learn has gone up so far that i'm at the point where whenever i'm bored or don't have anything to do, i go to khan. I can spend hours and hours a day on here and it's fun. I'm able to learn what i want to learn and learn about things i'm interested in and, actually learn. not just memorize. A++
Buggy & needs iPad Mini adaptability 3/5
By Pichu's Mom
Khan Academy is amazing... on a laptop/desktop. The content is fantastic for adults and kids. It has helped me help my son with his homework, since "kids these days" are learning by different methods when compared to when I was in the same grade.
BUT, the iOS app needs some updating. A lot of the question screens do not scale down to my son's iPad Mini screen. He has to scroll individual answers, which is more than a minor annoyance. Also, after watching the videos, he has to back all the way out to the unit menu to get to the next exercise, which doesn't give him "credit" for watching.
I'll keep my ABC Mouse subscription until the Khan Acadamy iOS bugs are fixed.
TERRIBLE APP 1/5
By SOLSTICE PRODUCTIONS
Good content, terrible app, nothing but bugs requiring constant restarts. Very disappointed.
Not over with updates 3/5
I have used Khan Academy mostly in my laptop. That was a great learning experience. I can't say the same for the iPhone port however. The videos were VERY pixelated, the articles never open up, and none of the points get added in. I'm counting on the programmers to get the iPhone app version fixed.
Great educational website! 3/5
I love that you get rewards and points and that there is a lot of stuff to learn! Its like a school! But the bad thing is, is that it fails to load the probloms etc. Its SO annoying! Please fix these bugs! (Soon)
Would not work with answers 3/5
When I did five sixths minus two sixths and typed in three sixths it told me I was incorrect
This app is amazing! 5/5
it's Really nice lol
great service, buggy app 4/5
I love khan academy, but the app often crashes randomly or when I try to view specific lessons
Very good, better than YouTube vids 5/5
By Jormungund world snake
I am going to school for Machine Learning, basically making robots capable of learning. I can say without question that this is a valuable resource and definitely fills the gap where teachers sometimes drop the ball. I'd recommend it to any fellow college student, don't feel as though you are somehow inept because you need an extra resource to understand something. Many teachers teach in a way that some students will never understand. I personally am extremely analytical and professors that teach surface method (not explaining what is happening behind the scenes that makes something function and only teaching how something operates.) hate me because I want to know why and how something ticks. If teachers don't teach why something works I get confused and stuck even on the simplest of things. If you need a resource to fill the gap in math this is it.
Super buggy 2/5
The content is fantastic. The math modules have given me the confidence to jump back into the college math classroom. The app itself, though, is very buggy. It freezes or completely crashes regularly which completely breaks my rhythm when I'm learning. Also, I recently ran into an issue where the app does not recognize my answer despite being the solution provided by KA. With improvements I will gladly rate 6 stars.
App freezes occasionally and I have to reset my progress.
Amazing app 5/5
By Eli Aris
This app is the best, but it crashes quite a lot. Other than that pretty amazing!
There are always things that can be made better in this app. However, I absolutely love where this app is at now it's amazing because am a student that loves to self study so it's perfect!!
The best! 5/5
I love how everything is explained! I almost never have to rewatch or redo any videos or tasks. this app is very nice for kids/teens who need lots of explaining to understand.
Great app 5/5
Can't believe it's all free! Thought there must be a catch but there's not 🐶🐵🦉
THIS APP IS LITERALLY AMAZING 5/5
By Lilli Lynch
it explains everything so well and in depth I have been doing so much better in my classes I don't even need to ask the professors for help anymore everyone NEEDS to buy this
These days it's hard to find an app that doesn't beg for money, but this app has a great variety of courses for all ages and teaches many different things.
No words to tell just close your eyes and download.that's it. Super😤😤🤠
Love the iPad version... 4/5
I use Khan academy pretty often, and I love the math drills aspect of it. It has really helped my mental math skills, and filled in the holes from when I was learning it at school.
That being said, that feature is only on the iPad version of the app, and I do not always carry my iPad around with me. If they could figure out a way to make that feature work well on the phone version, I would use it even more that I do now :)
Use it for every class available! 5/5
This website/app have changed how I learn. So many great videos and great teachers.
So helpful!!!! 5/5
Thank you for uploading online lessons! lessons were well explained.More power!
Got me through college 5/5
By Got me through college
I am so thankful for khan Academy. It got me through college.
Thank you again #Iloveyourtedtalks
10.3 update breaks the app 1/5
I can no longer open the app since updating to 10.3. 😞
I love it! 5/5
My sixth grade teacher introduced it to me, now I use it so often that I am the most advanced person in my class. 100 out of ten, would reccomend
Adjustable speed please x1.25 x1.5 and x2 4/5
We need adjustable speed
Helped me become an LPN!! 5/5
I have always had a little trouble studying, even struggled in high school. My dream came true when I was accepted into an LPN program that would eventually lead to an RN license! I not only wanted to succeed, I wanted to excel more than I ever had in the past. My 2 semesters of med. terminology and A&P courses had a HUGE amount of info to learn, in a very short time frame. I wanted to actually retain the info and not just hold onto it until my test was over. Khan academy helped me realize my hopes and dreams because I am a visual learner, it gave me an option I had not had in high school! Thank you Khan academy!!!
Every time I try to open the app, it crashes! This is seriously becoming extremely frustrating!
Needs fix immediately 2/5
When using the app not all of the problems fit on the screen and there is no option to zoom out so you cannot complete some courses
The best thing on the internet ever... 5/5
By Biotech lover
I personally love this app and I recommend this app to everyone
THE BEST AROUND 5/5
I love this
Bookmark needed 2/5
By **Customer A**
I love the website, but accessing specific courses (if reviewing multiple courses in the same semester) isn't easy. I wish I could bookmark each course for easier access.
Good app 4/5
Really good app but the ability to write answers is very distracting
NEEDS ADJUSTABLE SPEED FOR VIDEO PLAYBACK 4/5
By AJB Yooooo
Hey Sal, what you have done with Khan Academy is fantastic. Thank you so much! It would be extremely helpful if you would make an option for video playback at 1.5 and also double-speed, particularly in the app. I can do that when I watch on my laptop in Google Chrome, but I'd love to have the option on my iPad. Thanks in advance!
📈👍😄EMOJIS ARE FUN 5/5
By U 🍕=👎😡😤😡
I personally LOVE this app. It has so many subjects and levels that if you have it, you have no excuse to fail school. I've never been one to get bad grades; I mean I'm at the point where a B is a terrible grade, and I can maintain that using this app. If there's ever anything I don't understand or if I have to study for a test (especially finals) this is the first place I go. My little brother really struggles in school and my parents don't have the money for a tutor so I showed them this and now they want to get him using it. It's really helpful wether you struggle in school overall or there's just something that doesn't quite 'click'. Best part: it's free.
The only thing I would change is adding an explanation of common core. My parents want to help my brother with his homework, but they can't since they don't understand common core. We've got crappy Internet , so we can't always access the videos and I can't always help because I have tons of homework, track, marching band, and a social life. If they had common core explanation videos, that would be great.
Great For A Knowledge Base 5/5
By Chris L.R.
This app is FREE! KhanA is great for adding subjects to your knowledge base and expanding your circle of competence.
Doesn't work the way I need it to 2/5
I don't know if it is just me, but I have coaches that assign work and I can't find a way to get to it on the app
I hate This 1/5
My teacher is making me do this and I hate it
Not what I expected 3/5
Well, overall, the website is better than the app. But I still love it!
Best reference source for knowledge-thirsty people! 5/5
By Aizaz Arif
Khan Academy proves to be the best source for students to enhance their thinking skills as well as to build up a gigantic pool of knowledge. It covers every aspect of a subject with great lucidity and offers a marvellous reading experience. Not only can it be useful as a source of reference for curricular reading but also for fun reading. I totally love the app and I recommend it to everyone who is thirsty for accurate and relevant knowledge.
Love it! 5/5
Education should be free and accessible to everyone! Khan Academy has it right; Invest in the future of the human race. Download this app, share it with your friends!
Three errors in last hour between not being able to click to check an answer to not being able to click on "next exercise". App can't let you pickup from where you were last time. Also feedback doesn't submit. Will stick with website. Too bad. Really wanted to like it but disappointed.
Life saver 5/5
Khan academy has helped me so much in school! Sal Khan is amazing at explaining math and has helped me succeed in school!
Great App!!! Love it!! 5/5
By Suk Mike Hock
I really love this app!! However, I'm having a minor issue on it. Every time I try downloading my bookmarks it always crashes for no reason. Hopefully, it can be fixed.
Best friend in school!!! Thank you so much. 5/5
It's not possible to understand everything in class in school, and it's also impossible to let instructors to present the same things one more time if you don't get it. However, this app acts like your personal tutors after class. It's extremely helpful. I am so thankful.
"Report a Problem" Does Not Work 3/5
The ability to "Report a Problem" has become a problem itself.
"Report a Problem" control no longer functions properly to allow students to report bugs in exercises. I have found this situation in several course subjects.
The Academy will never eliminate / reduce bugs unless students are able to report them to the software development team!
Who cannot get behind this? 5/5

Great update. Enjoy the bookmarks section and adding Pixar's Art of Storytelling
The finger drawing answers is unbearable for Math sections 1/5
By Kram Sivam
I want to change this review to 5 stars in the future because I love everything about this app other then this one part and that is the using of your finger tip to enter answers. It literally is stopping me from using this app because it takes me 20minutes to enter 1 polynomial and quadratic equations answer correctly. It is a nightmare!!! Drawing with your finger tip is soooooo unnatural feeling. Why don't you have a bunch of mathematical buttons much like a calculator and also a notepad like text edition where you could type you work line by line to solve the problem and then you can just type in the answer when you find it.
Typing is so much quicker then finger tip writing! Example A. It took me 2 minutes to write this review and I'm pretty positive I wouldn't even be able to finger tip writing this in my lifetime!!! Please change this. I would love to use this app but I can't more forward any farther in the mathematics courses on the iPad app because of this!
Aggravatingly close 3/5
It seems to be more or less working these days, which is an improvement. But the interface is just close enough to good without actually being good that it's infuriating.
My latest frustration: being asked to graph sine between .5 and -.5 on a graph that's 20 units by 20 units, using two fiddly sliders.
If the designers spent a day or two using the apps I'm sure they could clean it up.
