I LOVE it!!!! 5/5
It is amazing that someone would think of this app!!! I love this search engine and it is helping save the planet our world is very polluted. Like there is plastic in the oceans (I am NOT VCSO), The forests are getting burned to the ground and it is sad and when I saw the add for this I immediately downloaded this. I wish I would give it more stars if I could but I unfortunately can’t. I suggest this to younger people to kids need to learn that our planet needs help and we need to save it. I recommend that this app is used by people of all ages and I know that they would enjoy it as much as I am right now. And if someone is reading this then I hope you download this app because if you do you can save the world with the tap of your finger.
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

A GREAT AND MEANINGFUL BROWSER!!! 3/5
By Trí Bùi Mạnh
This is such a great search engine to use. However, it's a bit boring and doesn't have many functions. I suggest that you should turn it into a browser like Safari
Surpassed my expectations with how smooth its runs. Well done!👍
Saving the world #teamtrees 5/5
I started to use this search engine for fun before but now I have a reason to use it, since #teamtrees are t ting to plant 20,000,000 trees, I could help out by planting trees by searching things up, anyway, you guys are saving our planet :)
Not enough options... Desktop? 3/5
I like to have the option to switch to desktop mode when I need to because mobile versions of a lot of pages leave a lot to be desired. For example, if I go to the mobile version of my car insurance carrier I do not have the option to pay with my PayPal account, but in the desktop version I do. There are many other sites I have similar issues with. I HATE being forced to use crappy mobile pages.
Unless there is a way to switch to desktop that I couldn’t find?
If this option were added I would like this browser app very much.
Works just like safari but is 1000000 times better bc it's good for the environment, there is literally no reason not to download it, it takes like 1 minute, I just think you should advertise this more so more ppl can hear about it
I love using this app but 4/5
By Calibur Master
I love using your search engine! Would you be able to add dark mode for iOS 13 please??
Do it 5/5
Great app 5/5
Love knowing i can help the environment while having private searching where my information isn’t sold to third parties.
who else got this cuz of the 20 million trees thing? 4/5
honestly, i really wanted to donate money to help plant a tree but because i don’t have access to that sort of thing i basically can’t donate. but when i found this out, i immediately got it because if i can’t donate and help plant trees, i’m gonna do it another way. so far this app is pretty good, simple controls and very much like google, though i do have a feeling that some pages won’t work and the app might glitch a little. but come on, at least you’re planting some trees.
You can help too!!! 5/5
I LOVE THIS APP! If 45 searches roughly makes one tree, that means I have planted around 30 trees!!! Simply searching is SO EASY!!! Just replace google with ecosia, and you’re all set! Think of how easily you can help!!!!!! Please download this app, it’s a great search engine with a great cause!
Save our planet! 5/5
Saw this on YouTube and was instantly hooked with its message. This is a legit company, downloaded it as both my browser on pc and now I’m downloading it on my iPad. Of course there’s some bugs here or there but I’d rather give all my money to a group that wants to save our planet than google who use it to just fill their pockets. I’m excited to see how much good this search engine will do in the future
This is real 5/5
Totally legit thing they got going on here. Don’t like that they use bing but on laptops you can get a chrome extension so yeah ima do that
Almost Perfect (please add dark mode / incognito!) 4/5
First of all, this concept is genius. I fully support taking ad revenue away from Google & using that $ to fight climate change. I love this organization’s transparency through their monthly financial reports & descriptions about their real-world projects around the globe.
That being said, the app is near perfect, but it needs a few things. The only issues I experience regularly are:
•the refresh button not working
•web urls not going through in the address bar
•”personal counter” only counting some searches; 4 different search tabs with different terms only moved my counter up by 1, for example
•As an iOS 13 user, I would LOVE to see a dark mode for this app to make it easier on the eyes in low-light settings
•I would also LOVE a private/incognito mode, because then I could drastically increase my number of searches without having those searches take up space in my history- my history would only consist of the important terms I wanted saved, and not searches I made just to get my counter up & more trees planted. (I wouldn’t have to sort through the 10 times I searched numbers just to find the article I was reading, for example. I could then use incognito mode to spam the search bar without flooding my history).
Great App, But’s It Needs Some Improvements 4/5
Ecosia’s great, BUT there are still some issues. Mainly when you look up photos. It’s fine for the most part. But occasionally I look up something so I can find photos and I end up seeing pictures of naked women. I am on the moderate safe search and I still see them. Is there any way you can filter the pictures more? Google does it.
BEST! SEARCH! ENGINE! EVER! 5/5
So this is a great app! Its nice how Ecosia workers plant trees based on your searches!!! XD It is cool how they try to save our planet... To be Honest this is WAAAY better than google or safari because those companies are payed by vaccines! Vaccines are BAD. They gave my brother Autism! Everyone should switch to Ecosia 🌍! EARTH IS DYING! We pollute it with plastic bottles 24/7! I tried to get my family to switch but they say it is not worth it! LIES. If I could give Ecosia a higher review, I WOULD! Sometimes i just would search “ abc “ like 100 times! Honestly! Just so more trees can be planted! I love this app! My mom even deleted it because she said it was not safe BUUUUT... I got it again. Go me! And the kind Ecosia workers and people who have downloaded this!!!! If Earth dies, WE DIE! ( Sorry for all my capitals ) Bye Readers!
Why wouldn’t you use it? 5/5
This search app works great and they plant trees because of it! Just give yourself a chance to get used to it and you will have no issues (and I only saw that because we are used to safari or google). It’s different but it’s great! Thank you for doing this! 💚💙💚💙
amazing but a couple minor things 5/5
i love ecosia so much!! it’s my favorite search engine and the idea is great. nearly everything about it is perfect. but two minor ideas: maybe have a dark mode setting especially for being on at night so it isn’t so bright? also, having an option to open a page in a new tab would be really helpful. other than that, this is an amazing app!!!!!
This is an amazing app! It has the same processing speed as Google, and it plants trees!!!
Great but buggy and could use a few improvements 4/5
Lots of buginess with images in image searches. Could do with an “open in new tab” options on links, as well as easier access to tabs. However, since it’s for a great cause, I can deal with these minor flaws.
Amazing idea 5/5
Such a smart and clever way to help the planet
Not good on mobile BUT Amazing on computer 4/5
I love Ecosia it’s amazing but I don’t like the mobile version it’s not good on mobile HOWEVER it’s amazing on computer because it’s a google chrome extension so it’s Ecosia but it is connected to your google account which is AMAZING if the mobile version gets this feature then I’ll come back to it till then I suggest the computer version.
Needs easier access to tabs 2/5
It’s simply too inconvenient navigating between tabs
Fake news! 1/5
This app is spreading a lot of fake news. Everything they are saying is to misleading people. I live in a country that they said the “trees” are in bad situation. This is a total lie. All they want is to use you to reach their “socialist” politics.
Missing something for iOS 13 3/5
By Aurelius MacRitchie
DARK MODE ;)
Nice work 5/5
By Bly May
I just love this app! I think it’s the best way to help the environment without even realizing you are. I shared it with my friends and teachers and they seem to love it too! I’m trying to spread the news so everyone can start planting some trees and hopefully we will survive 2050. Please download! Very reccomended!
Too FXXKING SLOW!!! 1/5
Too slow, GRANDADS!!!You love to raising viruses on anybody's device!!! Get screwed!!
Get screwed all! I want this virus generator to get the f**** out of the App Store and CH Play!!!
Great app, great initiative, needs a few fixes 4/5
I am very glad to use this app, knowing that the planting of trees is supported by me using it. However, there are a couple of things I’d like to see fixed:
1. When tapping on the address/search bar, please highlight the entire entry, so I can immediately start typing my search term. Right now I have to first hit the “x” button to delete the current entry, a small but unnecessary step.
2. When scrolling actively, the toolbar and search bar disappear, but reappear too quickly when scrolling stops. This wouldn’t be so bad but the text actually moves when the bars reappear, making reading difficult fir a split-second. It would be better if, like in Safari, the bars remain hidden until I tap in the upper or lower area to force them to appear. Or at least make it so the text doesn’t move when the bars reappear.
Thank you otherwise for this app and initiative!
Great App! + a suggestion 5/5
I think this app is wonderful and is a great way to support a cause close to my heart. I do have a suggestion: dark mode. Apple recently released its dark mode display across all of its apps, including safari. Right now, the transition from a dark to a bright screen is very harsh for my eyes.
Ecosia - add to Safari? 5/5
Big fan of the work Ecosia does globally!
Would like Apple to add it as a safari option search engine.
obsessed. needs a dark mode tho 5/5
everything else is amazing
Too many ads 3/5
I admire what they’re trying to do, but when I do a simple search the first several results are just ads that have nothing to do with what I’m searching for.
Wonderful idea! :D 5/5
This is a wonderful idea for people to be able to help when they don’t know how like me. Though the engine isn’t quiet there yet it is going great so far. Some of the mechanics to it are a but frustrating but all are small things. For example when I press images it scrolls me over but I want to go back to web I continue to accidentally press images because Im use to it reseting back in place. It’s also a bit frustrating to accidentally press the earth instead of the tabs. I try to use it as often as I can to help and given what it’s made for I’d say this is amazing!! Great job every bit counts ✊🏽
By dabi is kool
Great for searching and plants trees. What more could I ask for?
Save Earth Download Ecosia 5/5
Honestly, it’s just like Google but instead of funding corrupt corporates you fund tree planting. It’s amazing
Why not? 5/5
Why not search to support the environment? Doesn’t cost a penny for me and I am still supporting the environment. Sad I didn’t find this sooner!
Love the idea but not the app too many viruses 1/5
The idea behind what you guys do is great but the app literally fried my phone
I had to hard reset my phone after an ad kept repeatedly popping up and wouldn’t let me do anything else
The antivirus on this app is just awful
Idea is great but still leaves room for improvement 2/5
By Dumm and dummer
So I live the idea of planting trees with a finger click (or at least supporting it) but the search results really leave lots of room for improvement.
Most times I end up searching on safari after not getting the proper results on Ecosia so I’ve reverted to using safari almost all the time unless I know it’s an “easy” search
Great Idea 5/5
By Matt Turpin
I Wish I knew about Ecosia when it first came out. Easy five stars for concept alone. I’m on the lookout for other apps that do good things.
The PC browser is amazing but the App lacks in several areas, for one when you type in the name of a restaurant or business it does not pull up the address or phone number like google does. The app itself is a little wonky and i still find myself going to Safari.
bad update :( 4/5
literally love this app but ever since the most recent update i cant use it. it immediately crashes upon opening.
Great, but maybe a few improvements 5/5
I love Ecosia! Nothing better than a good cause. A search engine that plants trees! You have to admit that’s original.
The app has really improved over the last few updates. The interface is nice and clean and intuitive, and the search results are great.
The only thing that really bothers me is that there is no “open link in new tab” option.
Another issue that I’ve faced is that one website consistently did not work on Ecosia (ever), but I’ve managed without using it.
Looking forward to new updates, and thanks for such a great app!
needs to be more like safari 3/5
with safari you can get back your closed tabs, this app doesn’t have that 😢😢😢
Almost perfect. 4/5
By HRL_ gameing
I love ecosia for everything it is doing, but I’ve come across one problem on the IOS app. Whenever you close the app and reopen it, the back button (to go to the previous page) no longer works. I have no issues with it otherwise.
