it is good and I am cute super cute
Good Idea! Bad graphic design. :( 3/5
I love the idea but the graphic design is not great and very unoriginal.
Great Web Browser! 5/5
Ecosia is a great web browser. There are barely any ads, compared to Google and Safari, and all the proceeds go to combating desertification in the Sahara, Madagascar, and many other places. I use this app EVERYDAY, and Safari looks dumb compared to this. I like that you can tap on the picture, and it brings up in a second tab. I have never met a easier web browser than Ecosia. 🌎
i lovvvvve this app 5/5
Excellent eco friendly search engine 5/5
I love Ecosia and its mission so much! As an environmentalist it’s very important to me that the companies I support have a commitment to the environment as well.
Want to help the planet? Use this. Everyone should use this.
If you care about the environment, use this 5/5
The app actually does what it says it does. I was skeptical at first, but after researching it for a few days it was clear to me that they really are a company solely focused on saving the world. Any environmentally conscious person like myself should be using this, as you have a direct impact on the CO2 levels of the world!
Google is threatened by Ecosia D: 5/5
After the recent findings about google.... I found Ecosia. I thought it would be fun to search google for their predicted searches one last time before deleting it and what do you know, I typed “Ecosia is...” and the first few that popped up from google were “...a lie, ...fake, ...a virus” Yeah, pretty sure it’s an amazing search engine that does good (unlike you, google). (Not to mention the other searches I did: supplements are... “bad”, chiropractors are... “quacks”, alternative medicine is... “dangerous”, vaccines... “make adults”) happy to have found Ecosia!
PLEASE RELEASE THE ANDROID VERSION 4/5
It’s fine on ios but i just wish it also had an android version.
saving the earth 5/5
By Love Roblox 4 Life
millions of trees are cut everyday and it hurts our earth ,hearing that they plant trees in every search really helps and im really happy this actually helps save the earth unlike instagram models buying metal straws.i love this search engine and hope the best for their future thank you.
We need to save the planet 5/5

Florida will be underwater soon. We have only 12 years to fix our mistakes. Kids want to be able to be adults, but they’ll probably all die before they can even have the right to vote. Ecosia can help. Spread awareness, we need to save the planet before it’s too late.
The best! ❤️🌳 5/5
By Coffee The Dog 🐾
This browser is the best, I found it on TikTok one time, and since it plants trees, I wanted do try out, and I fell in love! It’s 10 times better than google and every other browser I know, it’s the best! It doesn’t only JUST plant trees every few searches, it also doesn’t lag, crash AND it look very cute! I saw some people saying it’s ugly, but it’s not, I also like the memes when ur going to download it on mobile, lol
I recommend this app SO much, I downloaded it on my Ipad, my phone, my computer and the family computer, I’m also making some of my friends and family members download it! ❤️
This is the best browser so far, I recommend it SO MUCH!
Keep up the good work :)
Amazing, except for one thing... 4/5
By Sky The skyflyers
I really enjoy the thought of using this app and planting trees while searching for simple things off a search website, but I think the engine could be improved to handle more things that can be more complex such as overlapping videos because these experience lag. Thanks!
This app works great and makes me feel good about using my phone 5/5
Every little bit counts. Spread love.
Really good but I’d like to use this on my laptop as well 4/5
The app works great and I am slowly transitioning into using Ecosia as my main search engine. However I use my computer a lot and so I thought I could make more use of this app on my computer since I’m on it more but I was sad to find that this app isn’t accessible to other devices yet. I really feel that more revenue could be generated once Ecosia is available on computers/laptops etc. Overall, the app works great and thank you for creating something that’s making the world a better place.
This is my default browser 3/5
My only problem with this browser is, I can't seem to use it for anything too complex, but honestly, I don't use it for anything too complicated anyway so it seems to work out
One thing I'd like to see... an option in the settings where this app automatically deletes history and app data when it's closed. It can be done manually, but then I have to go into settings each time to do it.
I'd just like the app to open with a blank slate/search field when I open the app, instead of it opening with my last results
It wont let me use it 3/5
I keep getting a message telling me to type the characters below to prove I'm not a robot because it detected unusual activity or whatever and I didn't even do anything! It doesnt show anything for the "characters below" and it doesnt even let me type anything.
Pretty good! 1 thing to add 5/5
This is great! I only search kinda basic things on my phone so I haven’t had any issues... the only thing I would suggest is making an “incognito” mode? I always used private browsing on Safari because I didn’t want my history recorded and accessible if I forgot to clear it.
Absolutely Love This App 5/5
Honestly, I never leave reviews, but I thought Ecosia out-did themselves with the new update. It is so user friendly now, and I am completely happy with the performance of the app. The layout is great and it offers a better chance for users to see the updates and stories of the work Ecosia is doing. Also, I really appreciate the visibility Ecosia gives regarding how money they earn and how it’s allocated. The whole philosophy driving the work of planting trees is so genuine. I am so very thankful!
As an Oregonian, I live surrounded by constant green and wildlife. Ecosia’s cause I totally stand by and support because helping save/grow trees impacts ecosystems, etc; to keep it short it’s impact is like a domino effect. As for the app, I love it, it works very well. I’m finding everything I need on it just as I would google, I spend a lot of my time researching, reading books online, just trying to grow and learn so having an app where I can do that AND it helps a worthy cause, can’t be beat.
I adore that the home button is 🌍, and I know the back buttons take some adjustment but in my opinion, having one extra step is worth it, in addition to ensuring I slow down, be present and pay attention to detail rather than get caught up on the media and start running on autopilot.
Hmm...I don't think so 2/5
By Allana S
I love the idea of this app, but guess what? IT GAVE ME A VIRUS. Also, whenever I try to look up information about, for example, a singers age, it just shows a bunch of websites and all I need is for it to pop up in bold letters in front of me, like Google does. And I have a question...do they really plant the trees? Like...how did/ do they plant 50,00 trees??
My review 5/5
By Malani Kai
I love how they are making new ways to save the planet in today’s society, very smart of you people- keep it up!
Umm problem 3/5
i love this app it’s great but we need to know where the trees are planted so we can see that they are actually being planted thanks UwU
Almost perfect! 4/5
I love Ecosia because it is a super easy switch to help the environment. It looks good and functions almost exactly like google! The only issue I have is that sometimes pages will not load and it will bug out and start working very slowly and lagging. If these issues could be resolved I think the app would be perfect!
Love Ecosia, but I think the app needs a few more improvements 3/5
I use Ecosia on all my browsers on my desktops and I love the idea and work being done behind the scenes. I’m happy to use it and haven’t really ever had any problems getting the search results I want.
However the app does have a few quirks that I wish would be fixed or updated.
- First, I’m so used to the backswipe navigation pattern used in most iOS apps (take safari for example) that it’s slightly a nuisance not to have that to go back a page. Would love the addition of that.
- Second, the big Ecosia home button on the bottom navigation bar. I almost never use that to go to the home screen so it just seems unnecessary and like a waste of space.
- and lastly, this is minor but I noticed the scrolling feels weird because the page seems to scroll noticeably faster than the speed my finger is doing the scrolling motion. Again, not a huge deal and I’d prefer the addition of the backswipe to fixing the scroll but still something I noticed.
All that being said, I find that those things are minor enough that I’ll gladly continue to use the app over Safari or other browsers.
Save the environment 5/5
I love this because I love saving the trees and I want to help as much as I can
They should make one like this but for endangered animals, saving the ocean, and plastic
I think it gave me a virus? 4/5
By Zelda Ficsher
Okay, I love Ecosia. You can’t search obscure things, but otherwise it works the same as safari. Only problem is I’m pretty sure it put a virus on my phone, because every time I search something on here, I get reverted to a porn website. It’s just this search engine, too. I’ve had the problem for less than a day but oh boy is it annoying.
Edit: it’s been resolved.
I fricking love this Ap 5/5
It does almost everything google search does. And it helps the environment. I rlly hope this becomes the new google
Almost 5 stars... 4/5
I really like the app, I like the cause, and I want to help the environment by using it, you guys did a great job with it, but i think more people would download it if it had a cleaner look to it 👍🏼
Good app for trees and everything, unless you wanna get some viruses 😐😠 I would rate this 0/100.
Great premise great app 5/5
Only thing is that grass emits more oxygen than trees lol.
Good idea...If you want to get hacked. 1/5
By Moms 4L
I found out about the app while I was converting to a zero waste lifestyle.I downloaded the browser on both my Google Crome book and phone and life went on.A few months of using it I gave my phone to my friend to look up reviews for a restaurant and then a few days later I went to search up something and the first thing that comes up is d*** and PLENTY of other foul language. And I oop.......I’m confused because my friend is not that stupid to do that but I call her and ask her a few questions anyway.She obviously didn’t do it so I just deleted all the history and go on with my life.As I try to log on to my computer to do some work the first time I realize that my computer is being a little slower than usual but I just assume that it is just the computer needing to be updated.i finish up my work and a few weeks later get on it and the Crome logo is all cute BUT YOU KNOW WHATS NOT CUTE??!?!?!MAYBE THE FACT THAT MY COMPUTER HAS A VIRUS?!?!??? I show my mom and she probably thinks that I was on some type of adult website because she gave me that look 👀. I knew in my heart that I didn’t do anything wrong because I DID NOT do that. Today Im on the Tok and I am scrolling and I see a video that is promoting the app and see hundreds of hate comments about the browser.I re-think my ENTIRE EXISTENCE now I see why all of this is happening to me.Heres some advice to you people...if you really want to do something for the environment then get off your lazy butt and plant your own tree.if you really want to change the world then use re-useable grocery bags instead of plastic ones.just please don’t to it to yourself. I BEG YOU!!!
Add incognito lol 5/5
Do it cuz why not
I’ve a question... 5/5
By Diego Sicouret
Can I look for some porn while saving the world?
I can watch Hentai AND help the environment

DON’T DOWNLOAD! 1/5
By Great And Awsome App!
Don’t ever download this app it says this app plants “trees” but in reality it creates viruses and it gives out personal information I have had this app for a month now and I have been getting a lot of viruses....trust me DON’T and I am repeating DON’T DOWNLOAD THIS APP!!
there is also a webpage 5/5
for everybody complaining about the app, use the webpage!! get on google and search ecosia and you can use it over and over again instead of google !! it works just as well.
anyways. i ddi think it was unrealistic that every search planted a tree but that’s because it’s every 45 searches .. which seems like a lot but it’s better than google.. so i love this search engine. i hope it becomes more popular because i’m an environmental person!
An amazing alternative browser 5/5
By floating jelly
So what if it’s not pretty? So what if it’s not as “fun” or doesn’t load fast enough for you? What matters is you are helping the earth improve as a place. That’s the real objective at this point, isn’t it? Either stay with your original browser and scroll around, or use this app as an alternative and scroll around a bit slower while changing the world just a little bit? I would rather save the word than be a normie and do nothing about it.
amazing app! 5/5
an app w a good cause and an amazing search engine.
please get! 5/5
This app works just as good as google and safari and helps the planet in the process
Love This ❤️ 5/5
About The Idea-I Think The Is A Very Genius Way To Help The Environment Because This Was Very Need In The Planet💞🌳
Searcher-I Personally Think This Works Just As Fine A Google Or Safari.Its Almost The Same Thing As Google Just Better For The Environment💞🌎
Over All-5 Stars💞🐠
A simple and incredible app and idea 5/5
By L💗VE THIS GAME
I think this app is the most necessary and easy switch to make if you use your phone to search for any kind of information. The company is transparent and their initiatives are real. For the purposes of a search engine, this does everything but Google or any alternative would. Personally, the layout has never interfered with my experience browsing. If I were to give any suggestions, I would ask that tabs were kept separate. Keep doing amazing things, Ecosia!
I've been using Ecosia almost exclusively on all my devices for many months now. It works just fine! The search engine is quite capable, I can bookmark and "favorite" the websites I choose.
Plain and simple, it just works and I feel I'm doing my small part in being more conscious environmentally.
ADD A “OPEN IN NEW TAB” 4/5
This is good, though some results are skewered and I can’t always find the best sources, so for scholarly work I do tend to switch around between google and ECOSIA but overall it does a great job. I think it should have an open in new page tab and just generally be slightly more user friendly. I recommended this to everyone and they use it at least once a day. Which is better than none. Good job!
gave me a virus 1/5
i was just trying to search asmr and it gave me a virus :( don’t download
By Follow julia_L33 on Instagram
download it right now what is stopping u. it’s the same as google but you get to save the world be a super hero.
This is a really good idea!!! 5/5
I put this app an my phone, cromebook, and computer.
Love this! 5/5
Kinda sad that some people are saying they are deleting the app because it’s not as “pretty” as google.
I actually love the home page and love this search engine in general. It’s such a good feeling that by simply looking something up you’re helping plant trees and taking a small step towards a better and smaller carbon footprint! 💚
Good idea, sub-par execution 2/5
By BoSs MCGEE
What can I say, you search something and I feel like half the time it doesn’t really bring you to the desired sites or best sources available. It also doesn’t bring much new to the table in terms of browsers, just throws a bunch of links in your face. I wish more could be said but its not even worth making 45 searches to plant the first tree as of right now.
