A very educational app!!! 5/5
I really love this app! I can learn a lot by practicing what I’m learning, and it helps me to catch up(especially math)!
LSAT lessons not on app 1/5
The LSAT lessons are not available on the app, only the website
Minor bugs..... 4/5
The Khan Academy app is awesome, only with WiFi though. I downloaded “fractions” from pre-algebra to do in the car, and all it says is,”Cannot load, please try again later.”
1 I have downloaded
2 I have no WiFi
Please fix this !!!!!!!
Really good to understand 5/5
It taught me how to understand math a lot easier than teachers and it really helps me at school
AppleTV Please!!! 4/5
Once you can use this on Apple TV, it will be AMAZING!
Please bring it to Apple TV so I can write on my iPad while watching in on the big screen.
Also, make audio files for the Apple Watch for headphone and walking usage!
Last, I would ask you do International Relations, and Sociology. Both of those courses would be lovely additions to the subject matter covered by your app and website.
The dream would be Peace and Conflict Studies which involves Economics, Sociology, Political Theory, International Relations, and Psychology all together to tackle the issues of conflict origin and tactics to combat it on multiple levels, interpersonally, socially, intercontinentally and globally.
Thanks for the lovely educational resource :)
Super glitchy 2/5
Back buttons don’t work half the time and videos should auto pause if I decide to continue on to the next video or start the quiz. Also the app has a lot of trouble with loading what I click on so I get lots of error loading messages.
Whenever I try to drag a box for a dragging question it won’t let me because the page moves with it and as for the questions after I answer a couple it would keep loading for the checking please fix I just want to learn 😡😡
And for everything that needs like dragging, plotting (scatter plots for example) are always moving the page as well please fix it please ┻━┻︵╰(‵□′)╯︵┻━┻
EVEN MORE BUGS:I can’t even enter most exercises cause of random PROBLEMS, errors, infinite checking...
Ugh this app needs to be fixed then I would rate higher LIKE SERIOUSLY THIS IS SO HARD TO LEARN WITH THIS STUPID BUG IT DOESN’T LET ME LEARN 😤
And for scatter plots, the moving screen keeps messing me up
Very annoying 2/5
I find it hard to use because of the keyboard for math. Whenever I try to swipe to the left of right I always click on something I don’t want. Also when trying to enter another variable I find it so annoying I want to give up. I don’t know if there’s a way to change this so I have to switch to my laptop. I find it okay with the iPad, but the version is frustrating.
I hate it only way to learn is if u use videos complete trash and I’m forced to do it 2/5
Success Sounds 3/5
Sure, this app is great for learning. I can pick up on a subject very quickly, and the learning system is great. However, trying to listen to music makes this app nearly impossible to use. Whenever you answer a question right, a cheery sound plays. This wouldn’t be annoying, but it stops your music. For some reason, whenever this sound plays, it overrides the music you are listening to, forcing you to leave the app and restart your music. Not only does this break the flow of learning, it gets very annoying if you want to use this app for a long time. There needs to be a setting to mute all sounds, otherwise this app is too much of a hassle to use for me.
By khan academy is trash
My parents torchure me with this
By Redish Panda
The input fields in the quizzes need checking. Many answers need you to slide into the next panel of input keyboard and the sliding act needs your finger to be pressed on a character, which types that character as well. You have to delete those extra characters each time and that is quite troublesome.
Not working right 3/5
I have used your website in the past as an educator and our school is moving to iPads. I was trying to get familiar with the app. The videos would play, but when I tried to open an article it would say, “Could not load this article. Try again.” I tried many times and with many articles and it still wouldn’t work.
Love Khan Academy but this app has tons of bugs 3/5
By khan haberdashery
Content is great, layout is decent, need a better way of keeping track of where you left off, i.e. in the middle of a video etc. It’s biggest problem by far is all the bugs/glitches, they make it very aggravating to use. Please work out the bugs.
Unusable app 1/5
This app is unusable. When I’m entering the answer there are two menus from which to slide back and forth to select symbols/numbers from, however whenever you slide from one menu to the other you HAVE to hit a symbol while trying to slide it and then you cannot delete that symbol without losing the symbol you’re trying to get. I’ve wasted so much time trying to figure out how to fix this. Until this is fixed don’t waste your time...
Happy Student! 5/5
Couldn’t love this app any more than I do. I wanted to make my free time more useful. After downloading a few apps, picking up a few books and listening to a few podcasts, I finally found something that works for me!
I went back and forth between homeschooling and public school my entire life, leaving plenty of gaps in my education. Thanks to Khan, I’ve been able to pursue an in-depth education on important subjects that I somehow missed. It’s connected all the dots for me and I’m so excited about it!
The teacher, who I believe created the app, is passionate about every topic. Specifically World History. Any glitches I’ve read about in previous reviews seem to have been fixed.
If you put the time and effort in, you will benefit big time from this app. It’s perfect for people who want to learn! So challenging and so rewarding! Thank you, thank you, thank you, Khan!
Khan academy 5/5
I love khan academy it has helped me catch up with math soooooooooooooooo well I do it everyday. It helps me with my fractions and now I’m amazing at fractions!!! I love it!!!!!
Good but the quality of the app (Read below) 4/5
The quality of the app has gone downhill since April, I’d say.
1) The back buttons situated at the top left (when you complete an exercise) no longer work, I have to swipe to go back, and the same can be said for the buttons when you’re watching a video. EDIT: This has been fixed! Thank you Khan Academy! I’ve changed the 3 star rating to a 4 star now. But please consider the following things mentioned below:
2) Allow users to download videos in high quality if they want to. I have enough storage and when I download Khan Academy videos, they’re always in very low quality, both audio and video. Give users the option to choose whether they want to save data and download in low quality, or if they can, download in high quality for offline use.
3) We can download videos to make them available for offline usage, but not articles. Why is that?
Overall Khan Academy is a great tool to gain knowledge and it’s proven to be very helpful for a lot of people including myself. My main issue is with the app. It used to be good until April.
0 Stars! 1/5
Khan academy is the worst no one wants to do it and their forcing me in school I hate sal khan everything about this is garbage
Needs fixing 4/5
Great app but the input keys on the keyboard are way too sensitive. It won’t let me slide to the next box without inputing whatever my finger was on when I slid it across.
Why need classes? 5/5
Khan academy helps me on geometry I’m gonna have to know and it helps me with the career I want, or it can be something you’ve been wanting to learn.
Good but to many bugs! 3/5
Could someone please please update this app? It has so many bugs it's incredible! First each time I finish a task it won't let me try again I'll have to close the app & reopen it just to redo the same questions I was doing, another bug is sometimes when it loads it would lose connection & back out or would start the questions two times so if I went back it would have the same task open! & some of the questions aren't loading properly it would ask a question but won't load the actual thing so I could properly do the question. My internet is great, this on the math section please do something! This is my main source of studying & I have a exam coming up It's extremely frustrating trying to study like this!
taking a turn for the worse 2/5
By Up too early
Used to be that you could scribble all over the problem, figure out an answer, then switch out of annotation mode to answer mode and write your answer. You probably had to write it a few times before the handwriting recognition code interpreted it correctly, and that was a bit frustrating. Not as frustrating as the knucklehead decision made by some user interface genius recently, however! Now you get this fiddly widget where you have to “type in” your answer. That wouldn’t be so bad in and of itself, but when you switch out of annotation mode now, it hides everything you wrote! If you are doing a problem where memorizing the answer would be tedious, you now need to have paper and writing tool so you can copy your answer into the answer widget. This smacks of a decision made by someone who does not use the application, never a good sign!
Great App, but one problem 5/5
By Sanjeet Mane
Khan Academy is a great learning resource for everybody. This app gave me very good scores on the practice quizzes. I usually got 86% or 100%. The only problem is that sometimes it says error tasks. I have to wait for a long time for it to be fixed. I hope that you can fix that problem.
Not like the website at all. 2/5
I wish the app was somehow like the website. From browser everything is more organized, simple and easier to get in. The app is basically a mess! I wish I could have only the topics I chose for me to learn instead of having everything.
Important Concept, good but glitchy 4/5
My kids both use Khan. It has them well ahead. My 5th graded is finishing 8th grade. It works, but often bugs cause problems. Also, videos often don’t address the questions. Nonetheless, it’s well worth using.
Really good but... 3/5
My dad started making me do khan since I was in 1st grade and I thought it would be like the school game he gets me but no!
I am in 4th grade and my dad makes me do 5th but every time I search it, I only see videos and when my dad asks me if I’m done I have to say no and then I get in trouble!!
If you are a person that gets mad very easily (like me) DO NOT get this app
So please fix that
A Definite Yes! 5/5
Who wouldn’t appreciate free tutoring! Perfect for students who need a little more practice in a specific area especially for sciences and maths really great program👍🏾
Supergirl168 is wanting changes 3/5
I got this app thinking it would make math so much easier for me. For a while it did. Now my coach tried to give me recommendations and assignments. He did but I can only see them on the website! Not the app! Also, notifications are not coming up on the app! I am angry with khan academy. They are making me furious! Also, the graphics are terrible... they load on the page, but stop half way through! One more thing before I go... I am unable to comment on the videos, in the app and at the website. Why is this? And what are you going to do about it?
So helpful! 5/5
As a person who does online school it is hard to fully understand what i am learning with only a few slides explaining the topic, then I’m pretty much on my own from there! This app helps so incredibly much! Every time i finish a lesson I don’t understand i can always use this app for more insight on the topic! Thank you so much
Difficult to Use 2/5
My computer stopped working so I can only use khan academy on my phone now, and the app is great except for when I’m trying to do math practice problems; while trying to type in answers, I can’t actually swipe around on the keyboard to get the different buttons I need without selecting the key my finger landed on while swiping. Please fix this it is so annoying
SAT review 3/5
By A person stalking u
I love Khan Academy so much, I’ve used it for SAT Prep for the past few months and it’s been great. The app, however, does not allow you to link with college board and continue your review progress. I wish it did!
Video quality is disappointing 2/5
I recently downloaded Khan academy app,then I tried offline mode, download those courses in adavance, then I found the video quality is not good, I tried online mode, it's still the same. Then I go to PC to learn the same course, videos on PC is normal, clearer. Why? I googled this issue, turns out there were users asking about this problem in the past years in KhanHelpCenter, and guess what, not a single official answers them. I really hope you guys fixes this, other wise this app is of no use.
Great app 5/5
Changes are okay I guess
Would be perfect if it weren’t for app-breaking bugs. 2/5
The last few updates introduced bugs that make some exercises impossible to complete or progress in, even after resetting the app.
1. Formatting on many math exercises has been completely broken. Numbers and equations are duplicated (for example 11 instead of 1, 3x+23x+2 instead of 3x+2). Font formatting has been broken as well, with some problems being displayed in a mix of large and tiny font. Some multiple choice math problems are impossible to progress through because the answers are not selectable, they are formatted in a side-scrolling table which is clearly not intentional on KA’s side.
2. Inputting answers in math exercises is occasionally bugged. I’ve experienced two different bugs. One causes the keyboard to retract after every button selected, forcing you to tap again and again and input one number at a time. The second bug makes it impossible to scroll left and right on the keyboard without the button you swipe on being inputted in the answer field, forcing you to go back and delete each extraneous number or sign before submitting your answer.
3. Possibly not a bug but still annoying: The “correct answer” and “exercise completed” jingle now takes over the audio on iPhone, pausing whatever music, ebook or podcast you’re listening to. I like to listen to other things while working on KA exercises and it’s frustrating to have to constantly restart whatever I’m listening to when I’m doing exercises.
Shoddy at best 1/5
Really needs some work. What’s the deal?
It helps a lot 5/5
In one video I got everything I needed!
Can’t find my classes. When I try to take quizzes or assignments when it’s done it freezes and I have to hard shut down my phone to restart it. Nothing saves. Won’t be using this again. Bad on my iPad as well. Only the computer site works well!
Terrible! App crashes every time I play a video 1/5
By Intellectual Learner
I decided to get the khan academy app because my account has been inactive for awhile and I remembered that they had medicine courses. This app helps me learn quicker than ever!
App doesn’t function correctly 1/5
On the pc it works more normally if scepter can’t watch videos from a certain screen with safari. Biggest grip of the app is 90% of the time it always has errors recording call practice problems , quizzes and tests and I have to do them all over again if I wanted to “master” the subjects.
Thank you so much😊 5/5
By Rosie kitten
I was never going that good in school, but thanks to you getting better my grades have been boosted and higher than before, thank you thank you thank you!
Trash on IPhone X 1/5
By Huffy the
Never loads. It is always crashing. Been like this for the longest time. they need to fix this. Don’t use on iPhone u can never get anything done with all the problems the app has
It’s free and awesome 5/5
My only complaint right now is they just did a pretty big update to the interface, which overall is great, but the release notes just say ‘bug fixes and performance enhancements’. It would be nice to know what changed.
App is very frustrating 4/5
I LOVE khan academy!!! Don’t get me wrong but every time I try to enter my answer and go back and forth between numbers and exponents in clicks on EVERYTHING! I’m trying to learn but my frustration with this app is mounting... I don’t have WiFi at home and my phone is literally my key to everything... INCLUDING.. this app... the bugs are getting to me... I can’t take some tests because there’s an error and the constant clicking on EVERYTHING.. BUT what I want 🤯.... please fix these problems... for the love of God PLEASE fix these problems!!!! 😑😓
All my progress is there and it’s awesome
Terrible app 1/5
By mincrat lover
Way to hard, horrible System
By UNKNOWN 1000001
I love learning and THIS is probably the most useful app I have discovered. It gives so much useful facts about various topics especially maths, it's easy and I love how the man explains and makes it even easier! I recommend this, It's simple, free and you can learn TONS of information from this app, the best!
Great app for students 5/5
This app is great for learning material. They go I to great detail and have specific lessons. Only problem I have is there aren’t some topics I need but there is still a lot of lessons. Thanks for making a great education app free.
