V gud v nice, but also dark mode please 4/5
By Jay Jacoby
I love the cause and the engine itself! A dark mode or other such themes without plugins would be greatly appreciated though!
News article search 4/5
Hi team; love the app and what you folks are doing. Small suggestion; the news article titles under search get cut off instead of continuing onto a second line. I’m on an iPhone 11 Pro. The titles end with ... and instead they could continue on a second line. Maybe a small font to accommodate.

I like that it's doing great for the environment and planting trees but seriously it's as reliable as internet explorer. I'm thoroughly convinced it's the same terrible web browser just remarketed as something original. I'm just waiting for that purple gorilla to pop up and sing ”Daisy”
I love being able to make a difference in the world while doing my normal activities, and Ecosia is a super easy way to that! My only complaints are that you can’t select a “read aloud” option like you can on other browsers (like Safari or Firefox) and that you can’t login to your own “account” so your score can be tracked between devices. Other than that, I really do enjoy it!
Great app 5/5
I am so proud of all the work ecosia is doing. I hope that they will continue to make our planet better with the trees they plant.
A little bit more tweaking to-do 4/5
Note: this is through using a device that is quite old, but also after updating to the 24-Jan-2020 update(4.0.8).
Desktop Ecosia is the best version of Ecosia, but mobile has some tweaking to be done - at least for older devices if that's an option.
• Really simple to use - similar to Safari (no too much to learn)
• Small app size
• Can open something viewed in app in Safari or even save it to the same 'Reading List'
• Easy to see how many tress planted
• Always accessible new button
• Still supports older devices to some extent
• Better than Safari in that longer searches can be edited to the very last letter using the cursor
• Can't view all image reults at once in the tile view that one can scroll vertically through (once an image that is displayed as all white is clicked on then scrolling horizontally is possible)
• No dark mode (This is accross all of Ecosia - might work on new iOS's with the built in OS dark mode)
• No swipe from left to right to go back 1 page
Side note: the main image (the top one) for each Ecosia blog post post doesn't load (Safari & app) - just like image search results
With a little tweaking of the code, the mobile Ecosia will be just as great or better as the desktop.
I think it’s a very interesting concept and beneficial for our environment for everything going on now a days but once in a while when you search something it isn’t included in the counter provided. You have to have 45 searches to plant 1 tree
It’s great 5/5
By skizorz emperor
All in all Ecosia is a wonderful search engine. It is slightly less convenient then safari as far as using it goes, but to me, (extremely) minor inconveniences are very much so worth helping out our planet. Helping our planet is a wonderful goal and anyone who wants to help our planet should be using this search engine.
Cannot Recommend Enough 5/5
By I like supernatural
This app has COMPLETELY replaced Safari and Chrome on my phone and laptop. I tell everyone I can about it. It’s amazing to see how your 3am google searches can contribute to this planet. Used to crash occasionally, but I didn’t lose anything and it hasn’t crashed in months. I love it!
Amazing except for one thing 5/5
I love this app and the fact that they are helping the environment with our searches, but the only thing I don’t like is that they don’t have a dark theme to their app, if in the next update you can add a dark mode that would be very nice.
This is so awesome but I have one question! 5/5
This is an amazing app that I’m definitely going to use all of the time. I hope this isn’t a stupid question but clearing your search history does not clear the searches that you receive at headquarters correct? I just don’t want to delete something so important! Thank you for creating this this is awesome!!!!
LOVE THE IDEA 4/5
This search engine is nearly everything I could ask for. I live in a middle of nowhere town with no environmentally conscious practices in place, and the fact that this app helps me to contribute to the cause makes me really happy. I can say that some improvements could be made, such as image searching and simpler switching between tabs, but I have very few complaints aside from that.
Love the idea and i wanted to love it so bad im just so accustom to google and everything it does i missed it n had to go back
La uso desde hace 3 años 5/5
Me parece increible ! Llevo 3 años utilizándola y regando la voz para que mas personas se sumen, me parece increíble la labor que realizan ! Todos los buscadores deberían colaborar de esta maneraa
Great But... 4/5
By Exponential Lover
I typically do not leave reviews but this app and search engine have compelled me to do so. I genuinely like the way it works. It is fast, reliable, and I know I’m doing some good in the world by using it. My only complaint is that there are no customizable display settings in the app like there are on a laptop or computer. Other than that, I would give this app 5 stars.
P. S. Developers is it possible to add a “dark mode” or dim the display?
Good Intent 4/5
This app is great and the app itself has a great intent, though it is a bit of a hassle. I have to search through my apps every time to find it and often forget about it. Also, if you type a link into the search bar, it doesn’t count it as a search. I wish you could just connect it to Safari or something. It is also a time drainer. You spend a long time searching random stuff to get search points. The concept is great and I honestly do recommend the app, but I think they could change some things.
So far so good! 4/5
I got Ecosia earlier this month and have been slowly feeling it out. It works well and has had no unexpected crashes.
Internet accesses from other apps still get routed to safari, but that might just be a settings thing.
I have not yet tested it with data, so I don’t know how it does away from WiFi.
This app is great, but sometimes it just doesn’t work. Like it disconnects every few seconds even with good WiFi, but that could just be the phone, so five stars.
Good, but a little bit buggy 3/5
Ecosia is like your average search engine, but with a few more bugs than I’d like. The most frustrating bug for me that I hope they get fixed is the image search. It doesn’t work at all and is cut off at the top, making it difficult to view pictures and impossible to close them without going to the image source.
I love the idea of having a search engine with a cause, and it makes me feel good knowing that I’m at least making a small difference. But the experience is almost ruined by that awful bug.
I’m glad I found this search engine and I’m excited to use it. Ecosia works great so far, I just wish I could set it as default on my iphone/pad. I’m glad you have this app at least.
It’s okay. 4/5
The search engine works and the cause is wonderful, which is the only reason I’d like to use it. However, the only thing that bothers me is that it doesn’t give you a straight answer on searches like Google does.
Great, except for one thing 4/5
I noticed you can’t edit the names of or move around bookmarks - that would be helpful. Thanks.
This is the best 5/5
Thank you for doing such a great thing for the earth. Now I use this app as my default search engine on mobile devices and desktop.
Thanks for the wonderful app developers!🙏🌱 5/5
Love this app and using Ecosia as a search engine. I really enjoy the fact that I further encourage and share the love & care for our planet and all the beings that inhabit it just by being on the internet through this app.
💫🙏Just wishing that the developers would add native support for dark mode and sharing extensions, iMessage app, and the ability to open links/new windows in the background
the way Safari or Firefox do, as well as file management so I can stay within the browser when I need to download a file.
Keep up the excellent work developers we appreciate you.
Best search engine 5/5
By Down With Google!
The best search engine for everyone. So far, Ecosia has planted 79,000,000+ trees worldwide! Amazing! The recommendation I would make is to not collect cookies. If Ecosia didn’t collect cookies or use third parties, it would be my all time favorite. If you want total privacy, I would use DuckDuckGo.
Free way to help Australia 4/5
Works great on my iPhone. No reason NOT to use this. A free way to help Australia
SAVE THE TREES OR I’LL EAT YOUR KNEECAPS 5/5
download this. SAVE THE TREES NOW. unless u want your kneecaps eaten
Ecosia is extraordinary! 5/5
I love beneficial apps like this. It’s literally the same thing as google but it actually benefits our environment, and isn’t another app who’s purpose is to make money off of people using it. Whoever created it, found something that people use everyday and used that to help our earth. Thank you for giving people a way to creatively save our planet, this app is wonderful.
Turn it on AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH
Absolutely perfect! 5/5
Works literally the exact same as google and other great search engines, but it helps the earth too!
Absolutely Amazing!! 5/5
I am a big environmentalist, so when I found out about Ecosia, I was super excited! Ecosia is really nice because it doesn’t cause any bugs or glitches on your device. It is a perfectly safe web browser! I love Ecosia because I can be planting trees and helping save the planet by just searching for things on the web, just like you would do on Google or Safari. Ecosia does so many great things for the world, and they even give you update videos on what they are doing. I would recommend Ecosia to everyone on Earth if I could. Thank you Ecosia!!!
They need to put secure certificate/website lock in url bar 4/5
This idea is wonderful and it was an almost seamless transition to use this instead of other search engines. However, this app really needs to notify users when the current websites are secure during use (e.g. using a little lock when the websites secure and certificate is valid with https). This is really important in this era of the internet and protecting ourselves as users. Other than that, it’s such a great idea.
So Great! 5/5
By summer sunn
Google really needs to watch out. Nothing beats saving the environment.
Highly, HIGHLY recommend 5/5
By phoebe d :)
This app is so fantastic I can’t even put it into words. You’re planting trees- saving the environment- from just typing inquiries into a search engine. The switch from your regular mobile browser over to this one is so easy- just put the app where the old one used to be and your finger will click on it out of habit. I really do truly love it; I couldn’t recommend any app more.
Great app 5/5
By boo bugling
I recently downloaded Ecosia, and it truly is a great search engine. It is fast and reliable and they really do make an impact. I 100% would recommend this app!
Amazing! 🌎🌳 5/5
I love ecosia! It’s a search engine that enables me to help the environment by just searching stuff on the internet. It works really well and is actually quicker than when I use safari. I have gotten a lot of ads for it and finally decided to download it. I didn’t think it would be this good though. The only thing I think needs improvement is how to access the tabs. If it had its own button that would make it a lot easier. That’s all!
good concept, but i hate the search function itself 4/5
the search results don’t look like google and that makes it harder to use. you have to scroll longer to find what you’re looking for because you’ll get unrelated results at the top instead. it’s not really pleasant to look at either? but i do love that it plants trees
Amazing amazing amazing
Pretty Good 4/5
I really like using this search engine and I love supporting what Ecosia stands for and the great work that they do. It works just like any other search engine my only complaint is that I wish they would add a open in a new tab option when your looking at a product. Other than that it’s great I would recommend using this search engine.
Doesn’t Block Ads 3/5
Unfortunately YouTube now puts ads in the middle of their vids & I SLEEP listening to Solfeggio Scales of various frequencies so if they can add the block like the BRAVE app has I can use them more.
Great app and idea 5/5
It’s a great thing, that you can help the earth and plant trees for free! 🌲 🌳
Great search engine 5/5
Fantastic company and great search engine. I use this browser across my phone and computer. My only issues are that it does not have a dark mode at this time and the app version needs auto fill of some sort, at least an option for it.
A peice of crap 1/5
So after a month of having this app my phone was glitchy and I thought it was breaking so I looked on the reviews of all my app and some of the reviews on this app said this causes a virus and this is what happend. When I went on YouTube my screen just turned black but the sound from the video was still playing so to make the screen normal again you just have to press the home button and it is annoying after a while. This is basically all that happend but I don’t recommend this app to anyone. Sorry
By just hike
i love this app so much i feel weird being so in love with a search engine but dude it’s amazing
Great but.. 4/5
First of this is a fantastic app with a great mission however I just have but one complaint it would be great if there was a dark mode feature for those people with sensitive eyes like me.
Needs FIND feature 1/5
By Lemon taffy
This app is almost perfect, but there needs to be a way to search for words on the page. The find feature saves so much time, so there are times where I cannot use this search unless I want to go on a wild goose chase through the pages to find the part I’m looking for.
Also, a dark screen mode would be great!
I have to give one star, because I came to see if anyone replied to my review (hopefully working on the feature), but instead I found that my review was deleted ):
I love this app and the people behind it 5/5
I’ve been using this search engine for around a year and I’m loving the fact that this isn’t a hoax! All the people behind this app are amazing and I hope they continue doing what they’re doing as it’s a great cause!
Support Dark Mode 3/5
Please add Dark Mode as an option.
Dark theme is a big No-No 5/5
Good app with great intentions! My only problem thus far is that it doesn't handle the dark theme very well and regularly switches back to white with no reason. My eyes don't appreciate that too much considering I usually do this at night lol
