Adding too much in the sentences
by kitty moka on 2019/12/03 01:35
It’s good for education but There is stuff that is not to be in there and it’s not helping the reader know the answer and it is harder for the person to know the answers if they don’t know the answer in the sentence they don’t know if it’s multiplication or adding or subtracting or dividing make it easier please and in it say 3 more when it’s actually less so please fix it
Great learning app
by hxinsui on 2019/12/03 01:28
It would be perfect if all content could be downloaded for offline learning.
Wow!!!
by ^&*( on 2019/12/01 14:06
What an incredible app. I’m so impressed. This company deserves loads of money to be thrown at it for making it free. My son has just switched from a Cambridge school to an American School and missed a lot of work. I think we were both about to give up. I didn’t know where to start to help him and being his new school is completely iPad based we felt deep despair at just the thought of trying to navigate through classrooms codes and half working text book apps. Now it’s all here in one place! Simple well explained and the practice really gets your confidence going. He had some maths homework and instead of the total melt down we both would have had trying to work out what was going on we flew through it!! THANK YOU! I love the fact that all the grades are here too so if there is a concept he is struggling with we can go back in the grades to see where that was introduced and work through it! We have been struggling for months trying to find the answer on line. It was only due to the fact that Khan kept coming up that I googled it and found the app. I truly pray this company gets loads of financial support to keep this app going! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!
I’m gonna give 5 star amazing app

Why does this exist
by BEYBLEA on 2019/11/28 17:38
This is boring That I don’t Learn anything do not get this app
Works like a charm
by Ap hunters on 2019/11/27 23:52
I downloaded this app thinking it is another boring learning app. Yet I was wrong. I learned a quick lesson on place value and found it very easy. So I decided to try remainders for the first time ever yet I did a lesson and it worked like a charm. I ran around my house screaming I can do remainders. Khan Academy is right. You CAN learn anything. Thank you for getting me ahead in school.
Please
by Coloring Aneta on 2019/11/26 16:18
Sometimes it glitches but best app ever for education please can a developer tell me why when I click a video it automatically glitches. Only this is bugging me
Love it. Suggestions.
by Lucy Blossom🌸 on 2019/11/26 06:00
Love the app as it gives you a variety of topics to choose from. Whether it's math, it's science, or it's writing it can all be practiced on right here. They even have an option for you to practice the SAT's! If you don't understand what you are doing or need help, there are videos you could watch I do love this app, however I wish there were two features we have on the browser version compared to the app. It would be really helpful if I could write on the page in order to help me solve what I'm doing or counts my time even if I am off the app to solve the problem. Another thing I wished they would add is the progress to see how long I have been working.
Please add Missions
by Waddy500 on 2019/11/25 22:36
Since regular Khan has missions why not the app. I’m actually tired taking forever to load for Khan. I’m a student that needs to there Mission constantly so add it to the app so it can be more easier
Great app
by UvaFlaka on 2019/11/22 17:57
After uninstalling and reinstalling app works wonderful!
I would love to see more AP classes.
by OG basketball boy on 2019/11/20 23:57
Add AP Psychology, Environmental Science, European History, and AP English. The app is the best.
Okay-ish
by How Come I Can't Update!? on 2019/11/20 00:52
Unlike St-math this app can actually teach you, but the mechanism, where when one gets an answer wrong has to finish the rest of the lesson without being able to make-over the wrongly answered question, is annoying.
Just a question?
by SillyCat189 on 2019/11/19 02:23
So when I tried to sign in it said I could not use it and go to the websites instead how come? 🥺

Prep test on iPad
by rustleee on 2019/11/17 18:01
Hi, I was wondering whether I could take the prep LSAT test on the iPad rather than Mac?
Suggestions
by Crashburn274 on 2019/11/16 02:09
1. There should be pre-tests so I can determine my skill level before starting a class 2. It would be nice to have a calculator in the app for problems which need it so I don’t have to switch apps.

Don’t regret 😁❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
by Girlsgametoo! on 2019/11/14 23:30
This game was a recommended by my aunt’s boyfriend buts that’s besides the point. I’m in love with this application ! However, I wish there was a higher level, like if you are really amazing at one subject you can level up. This might be a feature, and I’m just a starter. I also wish that you can see how you’re doing compared to other students in you’re grade or subject. Although this might bring student’s confidence go down,maybe there should be a setting that asks “enable board of leaders” or something else. You can also use my header, I think that’s what it’s called,. . I mean this program was free so, i do not regret purchasing this application .

No iPadOS Multitasking Support

American app not Indian

Review
by ngbgvbgb. on 2019/11/08 20:23
I think this is a great app and I like it since I’ve got to seventh grade math while I'm still in fifth grade. I think it is a fun way to learn, but it would be better if you add games to it. But overall I love this app!
Awesome!!
by Tipofthelihht23 on 2019/11/08 04:38
No money no ads no nothing! It’s fantastic!!!!!
Scrolling Ruins Experience
by Jmyonemura on 2019/11/07 01:23
It’s okay for doing homework on the go, but scrolling is terrible! I try to scroll, and sometimes it scrolls, but often it moves with my finger and then moves back as if I was pulling to refresh a webpage. This is frustrating and makes it so much more difficult to get AP CSP homework done!
Khan academy is the absolute worst
by Nateger on 2019/11/06 01:02
I am doing linear equations in math and we have to do khan academy for homework but the format on khan is completely different than on all of our work so it is super confusing so I have spent a total of 12 hours over the past two days doing 6, 4 question assignments I literally hate this organization do not use.
I love this app ❤️
by RumblesKitten on 2019/11/05 22:12
I love this app soooo much! It helps me with homework, everyday problems, etc. I totally recommend trying it, just one problem. When you create an account you have to be over 13 to create an account without a parents email connected. I think kids under 13 should also be able to have an account alone.
After update, cannot access coursework for kids.
by ProfMom1054 on 2019/11/05 20:34
We love KA and use the kids app, but my oldest aged out, so we moved to the regular KA app & it’s stopped working now - it says it can’t load content & to check internet. We’ve updated the iOS and the app & checked WiFi connection using other apps just fine (including another update for KA this morning) and the lesson using the “surprise me!” button worked perfectly, so there seems to be some error accessing content through the course list for the various subjects. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
The Desktop Version is More Worth it
by JamesBrachacho on 2019/11/04 02:12
I’m using this app so that I can learn more about Calculus when I’m not in a home setting. But during assessments, when I have to type in an equation or function, the keyboard that it gives you does not give you near anything needed to type in the correct answer. It only gives you integers 0-9, a decimal point, addition, subtraction, percentage sign, and fraction. (No, it does not have multiplication nor division signs). The worst part is that it doesn’t even have an x I can type in. Khan Academy, please tell me how I’m supposed to type in the derivative of x^-10 without having “x” in my keyboard. tldr- Use the desktop version
Can’t multitask
by loser819 on 2019/11/04 00:50
Please make it compatible with the iPadOs system so we cam multitask with the Khan App! That would make this app more perfect!
Horrible
by Plu12 on 2019/11/03 21:35
Does not work on my iPad It never worked My iPad isn’t old, it has the iPad OS update and this app is worse then the website
Will not download

Bro this “learning app” is not what it says
by turnernottaner on 2019/10/30 20:56
Ok Kahn academy it mainly uses videos as a tool good right no they don’t put effort into them they just slap up a trash mic and Microsoft paint and call it a day the videos are super unentertaining and you can barely even understand it don’t wast your time or space on this crap
It trash after new update
by khanistrash on 2019/10/29 04:12
At first it was perfect and fine, but after the update it was super laggy and slow.
It doesn’t really work
by gscsuevegaivejdhxs on 2019/10/29 02:46
When I go choose a subject it lets me do it but when I try to watch a video it just throws me out of the app and I need it I’m about to do my ACT And it doesn’t work plz I don’t think it’s my phone because I am using a iPhone XS Max
It is amazing
by Proksch Family on 2019/10/28 17:13
I never write reviews, but Khan Academy is absolutely amazing. I can’t imagine studying for a test without it!
Why Is This Not #1 In Education?
by KenDeshone on 2019/10/27 04:32
This app is full of quality education that has challenged me and changed the way I think- remembering when I was in love with my mind. I’m looking forward to one day exploring greater education that can only be gained by experience.

Please read.
by Derekarnold on 2019/10/26 17:19
I’ve gotten Khan Academy because I’m bored in my math class. I’m extremely excited to start high school math in middle school because I need something academically challenging before I go insane! Thank you, Khan Academy, for giving me a way to actually learn math this year. Ideas: 1- The energy points should have a purpose. Right now, there is nothing to do with the energy points, so they collect. My ideas to fix this is by adding themes, and/or games that cost energy points so the energy points are an incentive, not just something that collects. 2- The badges don’t explain what they are. The badges have no explanation of what they are, or how to get them, so earning it also has no incentive. I think that if you explained how to get them, or what you accomplished, the badges would encourage people to finish certain parts of the app. Thank you for reading. -Khan Academy user

Not a Teacher Friendly
by Vantymommy on 2019/10/24 15:40
The app does not yet provide the option to be used as a teacher to manage your classroom and students. Will definitely keep an eye out for this update.
Challenges my brain
by Pieces2010 on 2019/10/24 04:50
I like this app because it challenges my brain and helps me a lot. I just wanna tell the creator thank you for upgrading my brain.
Make an option to turn sound off
by danisha. on 2019/10/23 04:54
If I’m not watching a video sound it not necessary. I can’t listen to music at the same time I’m using this app because it makes a sound every time I answer a question/make progress. Great app but add an option to disable sounds!
Helps us understand uncommon math
by teeniemimiO3 on 2019/10/23 01:20
Thank you to the creator of Khan academy. This has truly helped us understand Common core standards! We have been using it for about 2 years. I couldn’t have helped my daughter without the tutorials from this.
Okay but...
by Mhorn617 on 2019/10/22 20:59
I am really considering my star rating. I may change it to 3 stars. When I began using it this, as a parent, it worked great. Then I started using it as a self guided course to freshen up my math skills so I could help my kids with homework. Now, every time I go to use my calculator on iOS device, khan academy restarts the entire app and I have to go find my place again. This is starting to get really annoying. Please fix this soon.
Worked well...
by #stargirl Fan on 2019/10/22 18:44
I don’t know if it’s a problem with the newest version of the application, or my phone is the one to blame, but none of the lessons are appearing. It appears to have trouble connecting (at least, that’s what the error message says). This application has done wonders for me in the past, and it still does (desktop version). It just bums me out that I can’t utilize on my mobile device anymore. Fixing this little bug would solve all of my problems.
UI needs some work
by monaMC on 2019/10/22 01:21
Love the concept of this app. Khan Academy is awesome. However, the Unit Test questions in Computer Science sections are impossible to read without constant “pinching” the screen to zoom out or in. It will not scroll down at first and when it does after multiple attempts, the same issue is experienced when you try to scroll up. For example, you read a question/problem in the test and you cannot see the answers. So you pinch/zoom and see answers but it is cumbersome to get back to the question again. It takes too much time. Sometimes I have to zoom out completely by holding the screen “pinch” and squint to see the text. I urge developers to use this part of the app on their own phones (I use an iPhone 10) to really understand my perspective. Thanks!
Best School App
by yoerny on 2019/10/22 00:37
It really helped me in school i really do recommend this app❤️❤️❤️❤️
Could be better
by theo_finch4life on 2019/10/20 23:39
The reason I chose to download Khan Academy was so I can practice and improve on my SAT. However, when I searched up “SAT” on the app it only came up with videos and articles about tips and tricks to get better. I thought it would give you reading and math practices...
Explanations
by migommi on 2019/10/20 01:20
I just downloaded the app and I’m loving it so far. It’s very similar to the web page. The only problem is that when I answer a question wrong during a lesson review, the explanations don’t appear at the bottom of each choice like on the web page. There’s also the option of pressing “get help” when you want to try again, but when I press it nothing happens. I’m not sure if it has something to do with my device or if it’s something that was just removed from the app. It’s kind of inconvenient because that was always my favourite part of khan academy, since it helped me understand where I went wrong.
Excellent math app
by victor Lin🎖 on 2019/10/19 23:29
I think this is excellent because it teaches you a lot of math problems. Me and my mom loves this app so sometimes you can try it.It sometimes get hard but just...So good.You should try it.Love victor
Terrible
by dhuegxgwid on 2019/10/17 20:45
Extremely laggy Sometimes you write the correct awnser and its wrong. This App should be banned from the US
SAT Practice
by Master Dan R. on 2019/10/17 11:40
I enjoyed the PSAT practice Khan Academy gave me. It helped boost my reading skills and speed. The website turned complex quadratics into readable answers. And recognized on how to improve problems of writing and language. With this in mind, the Academy gave me the magic of learning to make SAT progress. Thank you!

Excellent Resource *IF* You Learn Well From Videos; Helpful and Thorough SAT Practice
by Anxious&Obsessed on 2019/10/16 03:19
I have to use Khan Academy for school, but for me it’s not the best choice simply because of its learning style. I’ve noticed there are very few articles to read or ways to learn other than watching a video. For people like me who don’t learn well from videos or need a kinesthetic element like a written portion in order to grasp a concept, Khan is not a great option and there are other resources out there. I often use Khan only to get the time in for a grade and then consult alternative sources for the actual understanding aspect of my education. That said, I do very much appreciate Khan’s SAT prep. I’ve been doing this prep for the past few weeks and I love that you can make yourself a schedule and focus on what you need to focus on. The full length tests are VERY helpful (I wish you could pause them, but I do understand the reasoning behind not being able to) and I like that you can practice the same skill over and over until you grasp it fully. I personally spent five 55-minute intervals on a single skill and I am now more confident in that skill than ever. One thing I don’t like about Khan is the new update (online) that makes it so I can no longer see my progress in terms of minutes per skill. I enjoy the feature where I can see individual problems I’ve completed, but I really liked the bar graph with the activity/day feature. If that could somehow come back, I’d enjoy the experience a lot more. On the app specifically, I can’t seem to find ANYTHING. I know how to edit account information and do lessons, but all of the CollegeBoard information I have synced, the problem count, the test progress, and essentially every other feature I currently enjoy on the online version are simply MISSING. Please bring them back!!!
Broken app?
by annoyedandcnfused on 2019/10/15 17:25

Doesn’t fully make use of Apple Pencil
by Stormburn on 2019/10/15 01:18
The built-in scratchpad I use for math exercises does not have pressure support or the option to disable drawing with finger/hand touches for maximum palm rejection. Tilt support would be nice too, but not necessary given the app only has a pen tool rather than a pencil.
Okay for basic functions
by Pixelated_Prophecies on 2019/10/14 22:08
The app is good for watching videos and reading articles, but I wish that I could read, write, & respond to questions on videos and articles as well.
Finally !!!!!
by Risky Report on 2019/10/13 13:06
I have been looking for a while on a educational app that has some entertainment and videos explaining. It caught my sons attention and that matters the most. He loves it and it’s helping, thank you Kahn Academy!!!!!!!!!
Good
by Tbob05 on 2019/10/13 03:28

Not impressed
by KâTë on 2019/10/11 13:14
I was not impressed with this app they don’t have anything I need virtual nerd is better. In my opinion they need more content, and suggestions for students.

App doesn’t work
by Luna_wolff on 2019/10/09 22:30
I love this application so much. I think it’s a great tool to use whenever you don’t understand something from your class, but the app doesn’t work. The website works fine and there doesn’t seem to be problems or glitches. I try to do anything and it just says that I have no connection, but I was connected to the WiFi. This has been going on for a while and I was hoping an update would fix it but there doesn’t seem to be anymore coming out. Please fix this. It’s an incredible resource.
Things Missing
by Anonymous5712 on 2019/10/08 13:55
Khan Academy is overall a pretty good app, I’m in middle school so ZI use it to study. There is some things that are missing like how when you re doing a practice session and you don’t have enough room you have to erase everything to do it. I recommend making it so that there is also an erase all option so you don’t waste time erasing your work. Other than that it is a good app and it helps a lot.
How this ruined my life
by Merging dude on 2019/10/08 00:33

It has been hard for me to have fun when I have to work everytime this makes me sad because I can’t have fun also I can’t spend time with my family because I gotta work for my dad I love my parents and grandparents but it sad I can’t spend time with them, please read this Developer
Love the app, wish you can download entire courses
by LizS1977 on 2019/10/03 18:36
I love this app. I’m 41 and taking a pre-algebra refresher course. The tutors explain things better and make me think about the concepts in different ways. I noticed that you can download sections of a course, but not the entire thing. Could that feature be added? Can you also fix the ruler widget so it’s easier to rotate? Can you fix the “Error tracking progress” error. It happens every so often during exercises. I have the latest iOS and app update.
Best app
by iseiahplayerofxbox on 2019/10/03 15:18
This is the best app though u can’t look for everything but at least u can’t cheat
It’s good, but bad
by maritza.123 on 2019/10/02 23:30
I put the app on here for homework and access to it if anyone in my family is using the computer. The topics I’m doing have to do with fractions and fixed numbers but the thing is that there isn’t any space bar so I can be able to put in a mixed number. I thought that this app would be useful when I had situations like these but it just turns out to be awful. Other than that, when I’m working on other things, it’s fine so it’s also pretty good. I just want that space bar on so I can actually do my work

I would have given it 5 stars, but here's the thing:

so i, a loyal student, has decided to study my math.so i decided to download khan academy. but-heres the thing-i know most of my facts-multiplication facts(2-digitx2-digit)-but on the partial products thing, with the 'find the mistake' most of the time, the 'right' answer is really WRONG. so please fix this.
AWESOME

The crabbiest App ever

Parent dashboard
by rnjacademy4success on 2019/09/25 16:57
So it looks like the app is limited to only taking courses. There seemed to absolutely no link to the parent dashboard. For my daughters (K through 9th grade) the app seems to great. 4 or 5 Stars. However, for me, it’s really only 1 Star. Yes, I can learn with them & progress, but as a homeschool Mom, what I really need is to access my girls profiles within the app. Or a separate app just for that. Thanks!! I do love Khan Academy! I hope this is addressed soon. Then I’ll change this to 5 Stars!

Looking for developers response
by DessiDiva 👸🏽 on 2019/09/22 14:26
Every time I open the app it always says content not available right now and it never shows me what’s assigned etc. it does this no matter how many times I update it. The website works fine for me it’s just the app but the app would be more convenient.

Using iOS 12.4.1 on iPhone XR with no other apps running & location services turned off.Yes I have LTE date but as of now 5G is a fantasy because its not profitabel enough for the eventual T-Mobile/Sprint merger.This App has slowed down my phone since the very first time regardless of device or operating system.It doesn’t matter how many lessons you are downloading for offline viewing.This App is GARBAGE & your only saving grace is to complete the downloads & view your lessons in offline status.This crap is absolutely useless.I was hoping to rely on this being an performing arts major just trying to pass transfer level algebra.Campus tutoring services don’t know how to educate students with disabilities & their hours are limited.Please stop claiming to help students when your App can’t even handle downloading 10 lessons at the same time without 🥶 up like crazy. Edit:This is an iPhone XR in working condition using the current version of iOS,has NOT been jailbroken,with LTE data & a max of 2-3 other apps open with Background App Refresh turned off.After all that,any App that requires I close all my other apps in order to operate,is seriously trash.Now,I appreciate the fact that its free,which is a much needed service to all public schoolchildren & college students.The truth is that this app is useless for college level math.Literally 60%-70% of the content on this App is for high school math & there is no warning (hey,this is high school algebra NOT college level algebra).Also,apparently if you have more than 10 things downloading under “Bookmarks”.......forget about it.This App is totally unusable & I should not have to turn on Background App Refresh (wasts data,drains battery thereby pumping new iPhone sales) in order for this App to work.Hey,at least it doesn’t crash on startup like it used to do on my iPhone 7 Plus.All my other Apps on here,including heavy duty data drains like Youtube work just fine. This App has the right mission,just the wrong IT people. Oh,yeah.........Apple,please stop allowing your developers to PM people in order to coerce them into changing their negative reviews to positive and not pay them.You know this world runs on money.If you want fake 5 Star reviews (like on Amazon) then you got to pay up,baby. 💰

Best app ever I would recommend it. Salam, and allahafiz
Just terrible
by BladeboyXL on 2019/09/17 23:10
It may be good for other people but if your in middle school looking for help in math, don’t download this app. This app has no information on what I need help on. It just gives me an exercise. So I became a YouTube guy. Instead of retyping the title of the video and finding nothing, I just go to YouTube and it has everything I need. I wish you could do better
The best, you don’t memorize info, you learn it.

Yup
Very worth it to Download! Its Free!!
by sjennyG on 2019/09/17 00:04
Im glad i downloaded this App it teaches all subjects and its very helpful! Im glad it’s free because sometimes its very expensive to have a tutor, so the videos that you see here of a teacher explaining every step and solving the problems really help you! There’s all kinds of school Subjects, give it a shot !
Please

Developer, when I try to type in “8 5/2, I expect to type eight and then press the fraction icon, then it said eight is in the five place! I have to click several times to just find the place to type in the eight again! So annoying
HORRIBLE
by dg ccndnnd c on 2019/09/14 18:48
Worst app you could ever get for your kids. They literally send the parents an email making them tell their kids to do math. It tortures their lives. If you wanna torture you’re kids go ahead get it for them and let them fail everything in math class cause their too busy doing khan academy.
Great app but few suggestions
by excaliver51 on 2019/09/14 18:43
This is an amazing app and I really can’t find too many things wrong with it but I do have a few suggestions. There isn’t really much space to draw on the drawing tool if you can’t write small. Maybe you can make it so there is more space on the drawing tool and you can scroll down to get even more space. Another suggestion I have is to add reading lessons. If you don’t know what to put on reading you can make us read a book and tell us questions about it later. You can also make us try to spell words and sound them out. For example if the word was awesome the answer would be awe-some, I think, I’m not good a reading or sounding out words. For the videos that teach us how to do the upcoming tests you can tell us strategies on how to remember what happens in the book. You can also tell us how to sound out words and figure out how to spell words by sounding them out. You can also tell us what kind of information to put into our writing when where writing about the book. Ok I know I said I had no problems with this app but I do have one. If you redo a lesson and get a score lower then the first time you did it, it changes your score to the lower score instead of keeping it the highest score. Sorry if that explanation was bad I’m only nine years old but I was trying to say, if you redo a lesson but get 3 out of 5 answers right and the first time you did it you got 4 out of 5 of the answers right your answer still changes to getting 3 out of 5 answers right. I don’t really like that feature and I don’t think others like it too. Other then that problem this app is amazing! Please don’t stop working on it!
its so broken

Khan academy stinks my daughter has to get 100% to pass and khan academy is putting strategy’s she not the rest of the class have learned so I am giving khan academy a 1/5 star review!
Lifesaver
by V3599 on 2019/09/12 19:42
Khan academy has helped me develop a better understanding of the topics that I am currently learning in school. I love how encouraging it is and how I can get a visual sense of how much I am progressing with the app. The only suggestion I would make is that I would like to be able to cross out and highlight the answer choices in multiple choice questions. This way, it’ll be easier for me to select the correct answer through process of elimination since I am learning on a screen and not on paper.
Why sign in automatically in Safari?
by shiroyume on 2019/09/12 11:16
It is really annoying. I don't want to this feature. My personal information is leaking without my permission. I love to study on Khan academy site, but the app is not good. I hope this feature will be removed in a future version.
Disappointed
by Organy on 2019/09/12 01:07
Why doesn’t this app work. Only parts work for my teen I hope this new update lets this app work. Doesn’t work with my cellular data plan, doesn’t work on my in home WiFi. Whats going on
The worst app ever
by bye bye kaun academy on 2019/09/11 21:36
Hi I don’t mean to be mean but your app made my life stink! My mother forces me to do math every night and it made me think it was my teachers fault until tonight... hi sister was doing khan Academy as usual and she didn’t know her answer was correct so she checked with her calculator The calculator said it was right so she typed in her answer and your app said it was wrong! The worst part is our teacher says if you don’t get 100 it does not count so she was super mad and I was super mad too I wanted to get rid of this whole app but I don’t know how I hope you guys take down the app because it really just makes my life hard but thanks anyways! 😄-fake smile!

BEST APP
by Ashraf Mugalli on 2019/09/08 03:38
Whoever made this app and made it completely free knows the importance of education. This app has everything from early childhood education to advanced AP college level classes and it’s just mind blowing. I love this app I’ve been using it for years and it just keeps getting better. I learn so much on this app if I don’t understand something that my professor explains, I will for sure understand it from here. There is personal financing, college admissions help, and pretty much anything you don’t Learn in most schools. Thank you Khan Academy!
So educational!
by Eliana 2011 on 2019/09/08 01:04
I am Really enjoying this app cause I’m really doing good at this app I Love mulptcation so much that is really good and educational this app is awesome!
UI needs some work
by monaMC on 2019/10/22 01:21
Love the concept of this app. Khan Academy is awesome. However, the Unit Test questions in Computer Science sections are impossible to read without constant “pinching” the screen to zoom out or in. It will not scroll down at first and when it does after multiple attempts, the same issue is experienced when you try to scroll up. For example, you read a question/problem in the test and you cannot see the answers. So you pinch/zoom and see answers but it is cumbersome to get back to the question again. It takes too much time. Sometimes I have to zoom out completely by holding the screen “pinch” and squint to see the text. I urge developers to use this part of the app on their own phones (I use an iPhone 10) to really understand my perspective. Thanks!
Wow!!!
by ^&*( on 2019/12/01 14:06
What an incredible app. I’m so impressed. This company deserves loads of money to be thrown at it for making it free. My son has just switched from a Cambridge school to an American School and missed a lot of work. I think we were both about to give up. I didn’t know where to start to help him and being his new school is completely iPad based we felt deep despair at just the thought of trying to navigate through classrooms codes and half working text book apps. Now it’s all here in one place! Simple well explained and the practice really gets your confidence going. He had some maths homework and instead of the total melt down we both would have had trying to work out what was going on we flew through it!! THANK YOU! I love the fact that all the grades are here too so if there is a concept he is struggling with we can go back in the grades to see where that was introduced and work through it! We have been struggling for months trying to find the answer on line. It was only due to the fact that Khan kept coming up that I googled it and found the app. I truly pray this company gets loads of financial support to keep this app going! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!
Looking for a Developer Response
by rslitman on 2018/05/01 02:39
Pretty good app. I am giving it five stars, even though a recent update put everything in deeper layers. I used to be able to see every video, article, and practice exercise for a course, plus its mission if it has one, on the same screen. Now I have to dig deeper. Please return an expanded view to us! Also, we no longer see our consecutive days streak. The iPad app is missing a few things found in the web version, in addition to the consecutive days streak, but it is quite adequate for the learning experience. The most maddening thing is that when you roll out a new version with a major change like this, you still say “Bug fixes and performance enhancements.” Please give this review a Developer Response and let us know that you will {in the future/in future} be detailed with your updates when something major like the whole interface changes. Also, please let us know why the consecutive days counter (more motivating to me than energy points and about as motivating as the badges) was removed and if there’s a chance we can get it back. Thanks!
Problems with progress
by renegade3115 on 2019/04/19 00:56
I love the new layout and of course I love Kahn academy. Which is why I gave it three stars. But I’ve gone through course reviews and challenges and keep having to redo because there’s an error saving an exercise. I just tried taking the course challenge and got through all the problems but the last I got an error. So I re-entered the challenge only to find that the progress I’d made on the 29 problems up to the last had also disappeared and I was being required to take the entire challenge of 30 problems over again. As I’d already spent my allotted time for Kahn for the day, I’ll have to come back tomorrow and start again. To be sure this is just a review course for me so in the grand scheme of things I could proceed to the more advanced course without problem, but I just so like seeing that 100% on every course. UPDATE: after the latest update, I’ve gotten through challenges and practice without an app error and my progress is saved, so as of now, anyway, I’m quite pleased with the app.
Life Saver for a College Student
by Landis the Destroyer on 2018/05/10 20:09
This app has helped me so much in college when I didn’t understand concepts and formulas. I don’t know why people are complaining about not seeing their progress on this app or that it lacks in depth because Khan Academy isn’t supposed to be a replacement for a class. He goes over the basics of whatever subject you’re researching because you can’t do advanced material without learning the basics first. Also, progress is in the mind and you shouldn’t have to rely on an app to tell you that. In college, professors don’t have the time to do one-on-one sessions with students and quickly go through a whole year of subjects separated into segments in five months on specific days. I sometimes can’t keep up so I use Khan Academy after homework hours to look up sections/concepts I missed or couldn’t understand in very little time to teach my myself the missing components. Thank you Khan Academy for making my academic life easier.
AWFUL
by steV3nom on 2018/10/06 18:42
This app is honestly embarrassing, it crashes within 10 seconds of opening it, and that’s not a one-time runtime error or anything, this is, fully updated on iOS 12, crashing before I can even access a lesson. I have courses I need to complete for my programming class and I can’t even start to explain how terrible this app is. I can understand a whole new iOS version coming out and there being a crash bug or something not working quite right after launch, that’s totally to be expected, but this. This is honestly disgraceful. They haven’t updated this app in over 3 weeks, and it has been unusable for over 3 weeks as a result. The service itself is honestly fine, but this app is disgustingly broken. If I could actually complete some parts of my lesson when I am away from my PC that would be great, so my thought process at that point would be to download the app, and sure enough it isn’t stable enough to stay open for more than 10 seconds. As a programming student, I find this mistake on their part absolutely embarrassing and I can’t believe it still has not been patched. 0/5 stars.
Struggling with biology? This is the best educator you’ll ever have.
by SuzanneKanj on 2019/05/11 05:07
I’m so in love with Khan Academy, and I’m so grateful for it!! It’s really simple to use, and it has all the subjects that I need. And it’s free!!!! I am a foreign student who recently moved to the US, and I just started my first semester at cuny as a biology/premed student. Biology is hard, especially that English isn’t my first language. The textbook is really hard to understand and I have to translate most of the words, but Khan Academy made it so much easier for me. The language that the professor uses in the videos is really simple and understandable, yet academic and professional! The best thing is that when I don’t understand something, I can repeat the videos as many as I want!! In addition, there are articles about the same subject that I can read after or before the video! I just want to thank everyone in Khan Academy! You guys are the best!!
Would be perfect if it weren’t for app-breaking bugs.
by Pawkitz on 2018/05/26 14:39
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.
Horrible interface, and full of glitches
by Hunt.tr04 on 2019/05/16 03:20
I find this interface to be full of lots of glitches, and the interface self is a pain. It may take you 10 seconds to solve a problem, but a minute jut to be able to type it into the box. And it’s not like it’s a small screen. I use tons of other apps with iPad compatibility that’s flawless. I thought the message was to make life easier, and give anybody the opportunity to learn. But with an app like this, I’d rather carry around the textbook. Also what’s the point of mastery challenges or points, if you can’t access it with the app itself. And on a final note, I would like it if the app wasn’t so glitchy, the pages constantly quitting, going crazy and just being so slow. If you are a teacher, please spare your students, practice problems and videos are fine but please, do not replace the textbook. After a year of using khan rather than a textbook and old-fashioned practice worksheets, I came in knowing more about pre-algebra than after, and it’s not like I’m not trying. It’s just so hard keeping up with it and teaching yourself
Great Education, some problems with new update
by Jazzafan:D on 2019/07/22 14:29
First of all, Khan Academy is a great app for learning. This is what makes me give it five stars. I appreciate that I don’t have to pay and have a plethora of interesting things to learn about. This is also really cool for maybe second-world countries, for people that can afford a cheap-ish device but not an education. The new update removed the feature where you would have to ace every test, including the unit test, perfectly in order to get to Level 5 and be done with that unit. It was hard to get 100 percent sometimes, but it really pushed me to learn and do my best. Now, there is no level feature and it makes me feel like it’s a little harder to navigate what you need to work on. I still appreciate the videos and exercises, but i thought the level feature was the cherry on top. Bring it back?
Just like KA on the computer, but with some cons
by TomJadeLance on 2018/08/02 20:25
Khan Academy is great. Truly amazing app. All my subjects were synced, everything was exactly like on the website. The only thing that was really bad is the drawing features, the ones on the problems that help you solve the problem on the problem itself. The first line drawn is smooth and nice, but after that there is extreme lag, and the lines are all choppy and impossible to write numbers with. It takes about 10 seconds to write a single number if I want it to be legible. (I am using the Apple Pencil) In the drawing mode, it also takes away the problem. If there was a diagram there that I wanted to mark up in order to help me with the problem, it disappears. This is a pretty big thing for me, especially if Khan Academy doesn’t work with split screen. I cannot work on the app itself, a big bummer. Besides that, it is Khan Academy. Tons of great courses with great teaching and a great experience.
Great app!
by Mustafa3170 on 2018/06/20 17:50
I had an issue with the back button in the app but you guys quickly worked to fix it! Thank you Khan Academy! I’ve changed the 4 star rating to a 5 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.
Love it, when it works
by Jodyjar on 2018/08/26 22:13
I was really excited when I realized I could do the Khan Academy math exercises on my iPhone. I am trying to get caught up in math so I can take college calculus. And for a day, it worked great. But now, the app is showing all the numbers doubled and sometimes overlapping, and I keep getting answers wrong because I can't see them properly. I tried restarting the app, but that didn't help. And there is no place to report the problem. Help!!! Update: the number doubling problem wasn't resolved by uninstalling and reinstalling the app. I'm working through this with support, and meanwhile just using the website. However, I also can't see anymore what I've already completed versus what I need to work on, without clicking on every topic to find out. Super frustrating!
Good, but I’m missing a few things.
by Ana Bananie on 2018/01/23 21:05
Khan Academy is a superb learning resource, whether you’re a young person still in school, a young adult in college, or just someone who’s looking to brush up on specific subjects. I enjoy using it, however, there are some things that can be added, taken away, and improved upon: 1) Add the ability to view unit and subject progression within the app. This option is available on the web version of KA, and it really motivates me to complete lessons! However, I cannot view my progress within the iOS app, which represses my excitement and causes me to not use it as often, which is unfortunate. 2) Allow the user to make all videos watched if we’ve reached 100% on units! While the videos are helpful when I’m confused about a specific topic, most of the time, I already understand the concepts explained in the video, so sitting through a drawn out video stifles the momentum I build. 3) Sometimes when I finish a unit, I do forget some of the information given, so it’d be nice to be reminded to review important concepts when KA recognizes I haven’t taken the initiative to review on my own. Besides that, I really enjoy using Khan Academy as a whole, and with the changes I suggested, I believe it could become an even better and more intuitive learning resource.
Amazing and Helpful
by Racheal T. on 2019/07/20 04:56
This app is amazing! It helps me a lot and I definitely improved in every subject! Khan Academy is my #1 absolute favorite learning app! This learning app has many subjects such as: Math, science, etc. That’s not the only good thing! This app is very organized! They have: Kindergarten, 1st Grade, 2nd grade, all the way up to 8th grade! After clicking what grade you’re in, you can choose what you want to learn! Ratios, Algebra, etc. Once you’ve click what you want to learn, they have videos and practices for you after learning it, they give you a quiz! Just like what REAL teachers do! What makes this game more fun is that they give you energy points whenever you get things correct! You also earn badges! I am in LOVE with this game! Thanks a lot for the help! 😊
An amazing app with one weakness 😭!
by HeavenJumper on 2018/07/28 12:05
My only gripe is that you can not multitask with this application unless it is a very narrow sliding window. I really want to take notes while watching the videos and rewind at the same time to understand a concept. But the best I can do is to make the video float in my note taking app. I am an engineering student and I use my iPad Pro 12.9 for all my studies and note taking. Let me put this out here first, this app is amazing for starting at one level and expanding your knowledge at your own pace! I really want to give this app a 4.9 stars but sadly that’s just not an option. Please keep up the great work guys! I downloaded the app to my phone and I guess I’ll be squinting until the update comes. But trust me, it’s well worth it 😂
Makes learning algebra II fun (not sarcasm)
by amaries239 on 2018/07/30 20:12
I probably would not have been able to succeed in my Algebra II class without Khan Academy. What’s great about this app to me are the quizzes and tests- if I don’t understand a problem, the app suggests video to me, and also gives hints/ a walkthrough of how to solve the problem in brief increments, so if I end up remembering, I can solve on my own. Also, when you retake a test, it gives you different questions each time. This app is almost the equivalent to having a free tutor. In addition, the guy who makes the math videos is fantastic at explaining any math concept. I rarely have questions after watching his videos, and even more rarely after reading the walkthroughs with them. This app is phenomenal, 6/5 stars
Overall good app
by celadonflame on 2018/04/23 14:39
While the app can be a bit of a bother to navigate at times, the benefits of using it far exceed the negatives. Additionally, there were some issues in a previous version of the app that have been promptly fixed by the developer. I believe this shows that the team behind Khan Academy and its app are working hard to improve their products. And given that access to Khan Academy and all its features is completely free, I’d say that’s a pretty good deal. In the end, Khan Academy provides for free what others will try to swindle you endlessly for: educational content. I’m looking forward to the future of this app and the website that coincides it. I recommend that those seeking to sharpen their mind give it a try as well.
Great to update me on newer teaching methods, but . . .
by Joshuasherman38 on 2018/11/26 19:07
I downloaded the app on my iPhone X to learn more about current teaching methods, as it’s been a few decades since I went to school. Having a 2 year old that I want to jump start had me looking for options and I was recommended Khan by a friend. All in all, I’ve had no problems with the methods, other than updating myself from what I remember. The problems I’m currently having, though, are how you’re required to use certain functions in the program. The biggest pain in the math/geometry areas is drag and drop ruler function for measuring. It’s extremely difficult on the iPhone X, as trying to nab the “turn” points on the ruler usually ends up snagging and dragging the entire page around. With problems where you’re measuring the perimeter for lengths, it would be easier for the ruler to be tapped where it would align itself to the angle datum in place, then drag the ruler to measure it. I know that’s not a fix-all as some problems might need the user to make that angle drag, but I’m only up to the third grade and haven’t found them yet 😬. Thanks for the product you provide, with continued improvement it can be an extremely beneficial app for parents wanting to help their kids or learn themselves!
It’s amazing!
by Ilikepandasandtacos on 2018/07/29 18:13
I love this app, it helps me work and in between I can watch informational videos to help me, just I had an idea. I this they should have two big problems with this. firstly, half of the time my work space online, so I have to do it multiple times, and just spam it so I forget what the problem is, which leads me to my second big problem with this app, is that while you’re on my work space I can’t see the problem I have to solve, and I forget it, and since I can only see the title of the section, I think it’s that, so you should make the problem appear onscreen while you’re using the work area and fix that little... bug. But other then that, it’s amazing, and I just found it!
No Progress
by MsHooch on 2018/05/13 17:17
First off, I absolutely love khan academy! I’ve been using it for over a year on my laptop and log in almost daily, but lately I’ve been riding the bus or the train to Uni. WiFi’s not available and there’s not enough room to get my laptop out so when I found the app I got exited thinking I could use my phone. Unfortunately, when I logged in, I found that I had really just downloaded a blank profile of the website. Even after logging in the app provides no indication as to where I left off, my progress in any of the subjects, or even what courses I’m currently focusing on. Since the website is so simple and helpful, is it possible for the developers to just match the app to the site? The app would be really useful, but without progress tracking I find it’s better to just log in to the main site through explorer on my phone.
Please add a share video button.
by reviewer Malcolm x on 2019/01/01 06:30
I've been using Khan academy for the past 5 years and honestly it's taught me so much. But there's one big glaring issue. I've recently been trying to teach my friends math, and there is no way to share one of the videos I'm currently watching. This makes it extremely difficult to help my friends learn something, because as of now the only way I can show them the same content is by logging in on your website, and having to dig through page after page until I can find the video and then copy paste them the link. If you guys were to add a share video button inside your app I would greatly appreciate it and it would do wonders for my friends and I thank you.
Love it. Suggestions.
by Lucy Blossom🌸 on 2019/11/26 06:00
Love the app as it gives you a variety of topics to choose from. Whether it's math, it's science, or it's writing it can all be practiced on right here. They even have an option for you to practice the SAT's! If you don't understand what you are doing or need help, there are videos you could watch I do love this app, however I wish there were two features we have on the browser version compared to the app. It would be really helpful if I could write on the page in order to help me solve what I'm doing or counts my time even if I am off the app to solve the problem. Another thing I wished they would add is the progress to see how long I have been working.

I think it would be nice and motivating if I could see my streaks and badges in the iOS app, just like I can online. I miss being able to do that. Additionally, it would be really helpful to have more CS content on Khan Academy, especially based on standard CS curriculums in college, like data structures in Java and Python, discrete math, functional programming, and C Programming / Systems Programming. Also, it would be nice if there were tutorials about machine learning, human-computer interaction, computational linguistics, artificial intelligence, software engineering, and other “sub-subjects” within CS. I think it would be very useful for college students in rigorous CS programs, especially in times when over-enrollment, lotteries, and the inability to get into certain classes is a very prominent issue across colleges and universities in the United States.
Amazing
by Clara Kap. on 2018/08/27 02:58
A really really fantastic app. There are very big video varieties to choose from about the specific math topic you need and each of them are very helpful. Most teachers tend to only repeat what they’re teaching about one subject once (from what I have experienced,) but with Khan Academy it’s a different story. Khan Academy presents videos of any math subject you need help on and you can repeat them anytime you want and there are a multiple videos to choose from. This is a great boost because each video has someone explain their way of solving a math subject, that way you can choose which one makes you understand that subject more. Overall great educational app, planning on keeping it.
Great Educational App but a few adjustments needed
by appreviewshister on 2018/08/28 02:37
I find everything quite helpful especially the test preparation. However, I don’t like when I finish the units and it says, “error loading summary,” something like that. Then it doesn’t count the questions that I just completed. I also found that the app does have a tendency to crash. Finally, I enjoy having a place where I can write down equations, etc, but I don’t enjoy when I can’t see the problem. I click the writing tool, then the screen is white covering the whole problem. It would be nice to be able to see it. All these problems are very minor , but have become an inconvenience for me. Hopefully these can be fixed in the next update.
Don’t regret 😁❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
by Girlsgametoo! on 2019/11/14 23:30
This game was a recommended by my aunt’s boyfriend buts that’s besides the point. I’m in love with this application ! However, I wish there was a higher level, like if you are really amazing at one subject you can level up. This might be a feature, and I’m just a starter. I also wish that you can see how you’re doing compared to other students in you’re grade or subject. Although this might bring student’s confidence go down,maybe there should be a setting that asks “enable board of leaders” or something else. You can also use my header, I think that’s what it’s called,. . I mean this program was free so, i do not regret purchasing this application .
New update bums me out
by Rapsidy on 2019/04/03 01:38
I would love to give this 5 stars, Khan Academy is a wonderful concept and I am so grateful to them, but the new update is really bumming me out. I’m studying for the MCAT and I often listened to videos on my Bluetooth while driving in the car or doing chores. I liked closing the phone screen so I wasn’t distracted by the video pictures, but now I can’t do that. Before, I could have my phone closed, I could be on other apps, I could be on the web, and the video would play in the background. Now, unless the app is open, the videos will not play, and I have no idea why this function was taken away from us with the update. Please bring this function back and I will happily update to 5 stars
Excellent for studying
by Michiyo-Nakashima on 2018/12/01 23:05
I use this app to help me study and get more practice in my science and math classes(chemistry and statistics). I absolutely recommend the site, but the iPhone app can be a bit wonky. I wish they would fix little things such as when there exponents in questions about dimensional analysis, the formatting is e.g “2160 min2degrees, write this as s2degrees” I was finding it difficult in several chemistry equations, when dealing with exponents that the formatting was incorrect. Clearly it was supposed to be “2160 min^2/ degrees” but I suppose it’s the way a mobile format works? I really genuinely hope they fix it soon because it’s the little things like that that can make it so hard to study for a test while on the go.
Good but to many bugs!
by Edwin___xx on 2018/06/04 19:05
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!
Awesome, but I have some suggestions.
by Devano Bethel on 2019/06/14 18:57
First I would like to say I am very grateful for Khan academy, and without it I probably wouldn’t have gotten into UMTYMP. It is a math class at the University of Minnesota that gets you through calculus before 12th grade. My life has been a lot better when I qualified, and without Khan academy I am almost certain I wouldn’t have made it there. Two things have been annoying me in this app though. 1. It won’t let me do missions. I took one mission today, and suddenly it says I have to wait 7 hours before I take another one. This is really annoying, and I don’t know what the point of that is. I like learning at a fast pace and not being able to master these limits my learning, and wastes my time. 2. For the exercises you have this scratch pad. It is nice, but previously there was an undo button and now there isn’t one. This makes it really tedious to erase. It hasn’t been much of a problem for me since I got a notebook for Khan academy, but I think it will help a lot of other people. Also since I am doing geometry, sometimes you don’t want to to it in your notebook because you would have to draw everything in the problem. These are all the suggestions I have right now. The app is really good, but hopefully you can consider my advice.
Good, but has some problems
by Kai the music fan on 2019/04/22 00:37
So far I absolutely love the app and my teacher uses it for AP Gov, but it has some major flaws. In the most recent update the app has a huge problem with loading times. What used to take only a few seconds now can take up to three minutes to load. I know that it is not my IPad’s fault for it is only two years old and I still have over half of total memory remaining. By far the biggest problem is that whenever I open my profile the screen will just completely freeze. I waited for over ten minutes during this and nothing happened, so I was forced to close and reopen the app. Also, sometimes the buttons will just completely disappear forcing me to close the app once again.
Navigation Issues and writing the letters
by BroadwayDude1 on 2018/03/18 21:21
This is an amazing app! It totally works in every way and the glitches that bothered me so much in the past. Just one minor fix so that I could give this app five stars. We need a menu button in our videos and tests. I watch a bunch of videos straight, with tests and stuff, and then If I wan’t to go back to the course, I have to press the back button a million times and go through every single lesson i watched and every test I’ve completed. But the one thing that bothered me the most is that when I encounter one of those articles, I’m just stuck. I enter one, I complete the mini tests, i read the article, and there’s no next button or previous button to go to. I have to double tap and swipe the app and get back on it. Also, I have been trying to write the letter O for a problem on variables, but I keep getting 0. If you can make it so that we can have the option to type out our answers, that would be great. And that’s about it. Oh wait, if you can make the profile a bit more manageable like in the computer, that would be great. Thanks!
Add this feature please!!
by TheRadMad on 2018/03/20 21:08
I’ve been using Khan Academy for a while now and it’s helped me understand Algebra more. It’s taught me a lot and has a great way to teaching and explaining the subject. I wish it had a feature that’d let you bookmark a subject, rather then a specific lesson in the subject. So we don’t have to scroll around looking for it and it’s easily accessible in our bookmarks. Like for instance, instead of bookmarking every topic in US History. I can just bookmark US History. It would be easier since I can just click on subject and pick the topic I need to understand, rather than going through every bookmark. Thanks for reading if you did. Please add this feature.
Great material
by @zachtammaro13 on 2018/01/22 19:42
This app is perfect even if your teachers do not use Khan academy, considering most courses like Biology still follow the common curriculum. Some of my classes my teachers will only touch on a subject and not thoroughly go into it (which did some reason I need to have in order to understand even the basics), which Khan academy helps with. Usually my Biology teacher is surprised with how much more I know, just from watching 12 minute videos. Often if I do not know a certain part of my chapter, I can find a video on it on Khan Academy which really helps. SAT prep is great too! It pairs with your PSAT grades allowing you to touch on what you have the toughest time with.
Probably the best platform to learn on.
by Iyaae2004 on 2018/02/12 03:43
I would like to thank Khan Academy for teaching me stuff like physics but not only teach but allow me to remember stuff and understand stuff that none of my teachers could teach me. As an honors student, teachers always felt rush with the few time we had (42 minutes) and therefore skip making sure we all understood and get mad when we or I at least asked logical questions that needed to be answered for comprehension not only for me but for my classmates since I’m not bragging but top 10 smartest and if I don’t get it surely others my not either. Thank you for being so useful and having time to read this review.
Excellent for homeschool
by Mrs. Strongarm on 2018/11/27 15:26
Our family has been using Khan Academy for math almost exclusively for my eldest child after pulling her from public school to homeschool in 2012. Now that she’s in grade 6 she can (and prefers to) do the work independently. I love that I can track her progress without having to mark the work. I would only recommend a child using Khan Academy independently if the child is self motivated, learns easily through video-based teaching, and is trustworthy with the computer (ie not farting around when they’re supposed to be focused on their math). My other kids are using workbooks, but as they mature we may use Khan Academy for them as well.
Ughhhhhh the update is TRASH
by girly_gwen on 2018/08/17 01:03
So when I first got this I was ADDICTED. It even had the thing where you can write the answers instead of type. It crashed sometimes, but it wasn’t bad. So when I update...... Stuff is MUCH harder to find. U should just be able to find it quick. It’s VERY hard to “learn anything”. Then, THEY TOOK AWAY THE ABILITY TO WRITE THE ANSWERS. I used that feature A LOT because it was quicker than having to find the right numbers to type. AND it says that MY ANSWERS ARE WRONG. When I recheck it, it loads for about two minutes and the app crashes. The font is now glitchy and messed up. What happened? When u do an update, just fix the BUGS. That’s all u need to do. It’s kinda like the new version of musically or Snapchat. Plzzzzz fix?????
Explanations
by migommi on 2019/10/20 01:20
I just downloaded the app and I’m loving it so far. It’s very similar to the web page. The only problem is that when I answer a question wrong during a lesson review, the explanations don’t appear at the bottom of each choice like on the web page. There’s also the option of pressing “get help” when you want to try again, but when I press it nothing happens. I’m not sure if it has something to do with my device or if it’s something that was just removed from the app. It’s kind of inconvenient because that was always my favourite part of khan academy, since it helped me understand where I went wrong.
Could Be Better...
by Brenda McBlackwood on 2019/06/21 19:38
Overall, Khan Academy is an amazing idea. I’ve been using the app for years now. This means that I have been through many many many updates. Khan Academy has gotten to a point where I cant even figure out how to navigate through the app. There are some new things about it that are just dumb now. My least favorite part is the scratch paper. When you are finished and go back to the normal part to submit your answer you have to go back to the pen to see it again. The wort part though, is the eraser. The size is way too small. Instead it should be adjustable so that it doesn’t take ten minutes to erase your work and start again. I think that Khan Academy should have just kept the same layout that it did when I started using the app in 2014.
Khan Academy
by Batlover2005 on 2019/03/11 12:55
I love how Khan Academy works for you! It’s sooo fun doing all these things in one app that you don’t need to go to your App Store and get app that’s like $5 or more. Some people hate the app well because it crashes a lot on them yeah I feel the same way you do sometimes. Why can they just fix the problem the point is that it takes time and effort for putting good reviews. They just don’t make one or two things in an app no way they do all sorts of things in the app. So if you ever see an app in the App Store that is Khan Academy tell yourself this which app is better? Thank You Khan Academy for making this app!👌😎😄
Khan academy is great for learning, if your patient
by okay not okay on 2019/01/16 22:51
Good app for free learning!! However, it ALWAYS has “error problems”, whenever I answer a question and it’s wrong, I click on “hint” to see what I did wrong and it takes me out of the practice problems or tests, and says “error try again in a few moments”, but I never get to see what I did wrong because it moves onto the next question. This “error problem” keeps happening... so I go to the AppStore to see if there’s an update on the khan academy app and i see multiple captions that says “bug fixes has been fixed” BUT THE ERROR THING STILL KEEPS HAPPENING. My WiFi is not the problem because I use this app any where I go(friends house, cousins house, etc). I click on “help” after I get the answer wrong to SEE what I did wrong but it gets this “error” and makes me get out of the problems i was doing.
Great for studying on the go
by Zacary859 on 2018/07/21 03:25
I love this app, like the title of this review says it is great for people who aren’t always around their computer. One thing I wish was developed more was the download feature so one can download content for offline use. Being in a location where internet is slow and scarce it is a important feature to me. The issue is that my connection is so slow that at times I cannot tell if the app has given up downloading he content or if my download speed is super slow. Last night I left my phone on overnight to download and none of the bookmarked lessons downloaded at all (the percentage downloaded did not increase).
Love but
by kindones on 2018/09/08 21:10
I wish there were more for elementary grades in science and history etc. my child has 42 students and 1 teacher this year. Last year was 35 and 1 teacher. This year she’s having a hard time as that’s to many for 1 teacher so I’m compensating when she struggles with khan academy for math. I just wish it went more into science like it does for high school/college. Khan academy kids is to young. Thank you! It has helped already this first week of school. The disruptions have caused 3 days of homework where very limited instruction was given. So thankful we could learn multiples and division of 10’s here. You really are doing the world a great service
Lacking in some areas
by C0okiemonster on 2018/08/30 21:03
The app version lacks the SAT problems the computer version has, and the main reason I wanted to download this app was because of that. Also, when I complete a task with the 4 problems they give and press the done button, the app does not do anything and just stays still. I would have to press the back button, but sometimes it freezes. Another big problem is that the videos will not stop! I click on a video and exit out, but sometimes the video continues, and I hear that guy blabbering on about the topic. Sigh. Other than these, I like the app because of the diverse topics with questions you can answer. If I could give this a 3.5 stars, then I would.
Very helpful app
by Ching Chong Lee on 2018/08/18 14:39
I started using this app because the college I want to attend refers to Khan Academy. I am now studying Mathematics from this app and find that the app is invaluable. It includes lots of concepts and exercises with great features like mastery skills, badges and being able to change avatars. Although I prefer using Khan academy website to this iOS app because of the large screen , I still enjoy learning from this app coz I can use this app wherever I go. I am also grateful for getting a quick reply whenever I report my problems. Thank you very much for your great efforts , "Sal khan" and "Khan Academy Team" .
Success Sounds
by Crowe2320 on 2018/06/10 00:05
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.
Best educational app
by Vani8909 on 2018/04/20 00:18
This app really teaches you almost anything you want to learn from math, to science, biology, and a lot more. Not only do they give you lesson videos, they also challenge you with tests on many subjects. My daughter is in 3rd grade and for homework besides her school worksheets, I have her read 30 mins and do 30 mins of math on this app everyday including weekends. It had really helped her excel in math and is the highest reader in her class. I’m very grateful this app is free. I can tell the developers really care about the education of our future or else they’d be charging for the education.
Math
by ms. thaao on 2019/02/01 23:23
I highly recommend this site or app to anyone who has trouble with Math or anything. I always use this app/site because the videos explains it slowly to me and I can rewind the part I don’t understand to understand it better. He does goes fast, but with the video, you can slow it down and rewind it. It’s not where you’re in a class and have to ask questions after class to understand it better. I always come back to this app/site for Math. I love it and I hope everyone continues or choose to use this app/site. Good luck everyone!!!

Adding too much in the sentences
by kitty moka on 2019/12/03 01:35
It’s good for education but There is stuff that is not to be in there and it’s not helping the reader know the answer and it is harder for the person to know the answers if they don’t know the answer in the sentence they don’t know if it’s multiplication or adding or subtracting or dividing make it easier please and in it say 3 more when it’s actually less so please fix it
Great learning app
by hxinsui on 2019/12/03 01:28
It would be perfect if all content could be downloaded for offline learning.
Wow!!!
by ^&*( on 2019/12/01 14:06
What an incredible app. I’m so impressed. This company deserves loads of money to be thrown at it for making it free. My son has just switched from a Cambridge school to an American School and missed a lot of work. I think we were both about to give up. I didn’t know where to start to help him and being his new school is completely iPad based we felt deep despair at just the thought of trying to navigate through classrooms codes and half working text book apps. Now it’s all here in one place! Simple well explained and the practice really gets your confidence going. He had some maths homework and instead of the total melt down we both would have had trying to work out what was going on we flew through it!! THANK YOU! I love the fact that all the grades are here too so if there is a concept he is struggling with we can go back in the grades to see where that was introduced and work through it! We have been struggling for months trying to find the answer on line. It was only due to the fact that Khan kept coming up that I googled it and found the app. I truly pray this company gets loads of financial support to keep this app going! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!
I’m gonna give 5 star amazing app

Works like a charm
by Ap hunters on 2019/11/27 23:52
I downloaded this app thinking it is another boring learning app. Yet I was wrong. I learned a quick lesson on place value and found it very easy. So I decided to try remainders for the first time ever yet I did a lesson and it worked like a charm. I ran around my house screaming I can do remainders. Khan Academy is right. You CAN learn anything. Thank you for getting me ahead in school.
Please

Sometimes it glitches but best app ever for education please can a developer tell me why when I click a video it automatically glitches. Only this is bugging me
Love it. Suggestions.
by Lucy Blossom🌸 on 2019/11/26 06:00
Love the app as it gives you a variety of topics to choose from. Whether it's math, it's science, or it's writing it can all be practiced on right here. They even have an option for you to practice the SAT's! If you don't understand what you are doing or need help, there are videos you could watch I do love this app, however I wish there were two features we have on the browser version compared to the app. It would be really helpful if I could write on the page in order to help me solve what I'm doing or counts my time even if I am off the app to solve the problem. Another thing I wished they would add is the progress to see how long I have been working.
Please add Missions
by Waddy500 on 2019/11/25 22:36
Since regular Khan has missions why not the app. I’m actually tired taking forever to load for Khan. I’m a student that needs to there Mission constantly so add it to the app so it can be more easier
Great app

I would love to see more AP classes.
by OG basketball boy on 2019/11/20 23:57
Add AP Psychology, Environmental Science, European History, and AP English. The app is the best.
Okay-ish
by How Come I Can't Update!? on 2019/11/20 00:52
Unlike St-math this app can actually teach you, but the mechanism, where when one gets an answer wrong has to finish the rest of the lesson without being able to make-over the wrongly answered question, is annoying.
Just a question?

Prep test on iPad
by rustleee on 2019/11/17 18:01
Hi, I was wondering whether I could take the prep LSAT test on the iPad rather than Mac?
Suggestions
by Crashburn274 on 2019/11/16 02:09
1. There should be pre-tests so I can determine my skill level before starting a class 2. It would be nice to have a calculator in the app for problems which need it so I don’t have to switch apps.

It’s okay for doing homework on the go, but scrolling is terrible! I try to scroll, and sometimes it scrolls, but often it moves with my finger and then moves back as if I was pulling to refresh a webpage. This is frustrating and makes it so much more difficult to get AP CSP homework done!
Khan academy is the absolute worst
by Nateger on 2019/11/06 01:02
I am doing linear equations in math and we have to do khan academy for homework but the format on khan is completely different than on all of our work so it is super confusing so I have spent a total of 12 hours over the past two days doing 6, 4 question assignments I literally hate this organization do not use.
I love this app ❤️
by RumblesKitten on 2019/11/05 22:12
I love this app soooo much! It helps me with homework, everyday problems, etc. I totally recommend trying it, just one problem. When you create an account you have to be over 13 to create an account without a parents email connected. I think kids under 13 should also be able to have an account alone.
After update, cannot access coursework for kids.
by ProfMom1054 on 2019/11/05 20:34
We love KA and use the kids app, but my oldest aged out, so we moved to the regular KA app & it’s stopped working now - it says it can’t load content & to check internet. We’ve updated the iOS and the app & checked WiFi connection using other apps just fine (including another update for KA this morning) and the lesson using the “surprise me!” button worked perfectly, so there seems to be some error accessing content through the course list for the various subjects. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
The Desktop Version is More Worth it
by JamesBrachacho on 2019/11/04 02:12
I’m using this app so that I can learn more about Calculus when I’m not in a home setting. But during assessments, when I have to type in an equation or function, the keyboard that it gives you does not give you near anything needed to type in the correct answer. It only gives you integers 0-9, a decimal point, addition, subtraction, percentage sign, and fraction. (No, it does not have multiplication nor division signs). The worst part is that it doesn’t even have an x I can type in. Khan Academy, please tell me how I’m supposed to type in the derivative of x^-10 without having “x” in my keyboard. tldr- Use the desktop version
Can’t multitask
by loser819 on 2019/11/04 00:50
Please make it compatible with the iPadOs system so we cam multitask with the Khan App! That would make this app more perfect!
Horrible
by Plu12 on 2019/11/03 21:35
Does not work on my iPad It never worked My iPad isn’t old, it has the iPad OS update and this app is worse then the website
Will not download
by Lucky Lannister on 2019/11/02 00:20
Will only get to 60 percent and stop. I have plenty of storage and other apps download fine. Tried on data and wifi
Bro this “learning app” is not what it says
by turnernottaner on 2019/10/30 20:56
Ok Kahn academy it mainly uses videos as a tool good right no they don’t put effort into them they just slap up a trash mic and Microsoft paint and call it a day the videos are super unentertaining and you can barely even understand it don’t wast your time or space on this crap
It trash after new update
by khanistrash on 2019/10/29 04:12
At first it was perfect and fine, but after the update it was super laggy and slow.
It doesn’t really work
by gscsuevegaivejdhxs on 2019/10/29 02:46
When I go choose a subject it lets me do it but when I try to watch a video it just throws me out of the app and I need it I’m about to do my ACT And it doesn’t work plz I don’t think it’s my phone because I am using a iPhone XS Max
It is amazing
by Proksch Family on 2019/10/28 17:13
I never write reviews, but Khan Academy is absolutely amazing. I can’t imagine studying for a test without it!
Why Is This Not #1 In Education?
by KenDeshone on 2019/10/27 04:32
This app is full of quality education that has challenged me and changed the way I think- remembering when I was in love with my mind. I’m looking forward to one day exploring greater education that can only be gained by experience.

Dum
by hahadexrgftyftyfuvfgvftyvfy on 2019/10/26 17:42
Ugh I hate this app this is soo boring I have to do this dum stuff everyday
Please read.
by Derekarnold on 2019/10/26 17:19
I’ve gotten Khan Academy because I’m bored in my math class. I’m extremely excited to start high school math in middle school because I need something academically challenging before I go insane! Thank you, Khan Academy, for giving me a way to actually learn math this year. Ideas: 1- The energy points should have a purpose. Right now, there is nothing to do with the energy points, so they collect. My ideas to fix this is by adding themes, and/or games that cost energy points so the energy points are an incentive, not just something that collects. 2- The badges don’t explain what they are. The badges have no explanation of what they are, or how to get them, so earning it also has no incentive. I think that if you explained how to get them, or what you accomplished, the badges would encourage people to finish certain parts of the app. Thank you for reading. -Khan Academy user

Not a Teacher Friendly
by Vantymommy on 2019/10/24 15:40
The app does not yet provide the option to be used as a teacher to manage your classroom and students. Will definitely keep an eye out for this update.
Challenges my brain
by Pieces2010 on 2019/10/24 04:50
I like this app because it challenges my brain and helps me a lot. I just wanna tell the creator thank you for upgrading my brain.
Make an option to turn sound off
by danisha. on 2019/10/23 04:54
If I’m not watching a video sound it not necessary. I can’t listen to music at the same time I’m using this app because it makes a sound every time I answer a question/make progress. Great app but add an option to disable sounds!
Helps us understand uncommon math
by teeniemimiO3 on 2019/10/23 01:20
Thank you to the creator of Khan academy. This has truly helped us understand Common core standards! We have been using it for about 2 years. I couldn’t have helped my daughter without the tutorials from this.
Okay but...
by Mhorn617 on 2019/10/22 20:59
I am really considering my star rating. I may change it to 3 stars. When I began using it this, as a parent, it worked great. Then I started using it as a self guided course to freshen up my math skills so I could help my kids with homework. Now, every time I go to use my calculator on iOS device, khan academy restarts the entire app and I have to go find my place again. This is starting to get really annoying. Please fix this soon.
Worked well...
by #stargirl Fan on 2019/10/22 18:44
I don’t know if it’s a problem with the newest version of the application, or my phone is the one to blame, but none of the lessons are appearing. It appears to have trouble connecting (at least, that’s what the error message says). This application has done wonders for me in the past, and it still does (desktop version). It just bums me out that I can’t utilize on my mobile device anymore. Fixing this little bug would solve all of my problems.
UI needs some work
by monaMC on 2019/10/22 01:21
Love the concept of this app. Khan Academy is awesome. However, the Unit Test questions in Computer Science sections are impossible to read without constant “pinching” the screen to zoom out or in. It will not scroll down at first and when it does after multiple attempts, the same issue is experienced when you try to scroll up. For example, you read a question/problem in the test and you cannot see the answers. So you pinch/zoom and see answers but it is cumbersome to get back to the question again. It takes too much time. Sometimes I have to zoom out completely by holding the screen “pinch” and squint to see the text. I urge developers to use this part of the app on their own phones (I use an iPhone 10) to really understand my perspective. Thanks!
Best School App
by yoerny on 2019/10/22 00:37
It really helped me in school i really do recommend this app❤️❤️❤️❤️
Could be better
by theo_finch4life on 2019/10/20 23:39
The reason I chose to download Khan Academy was so I can practice and improve on my SAT. However, when I searched up “SAT” on the app it only came up with videos and articles about tips and tricks to get better. I thought it would give you reading and math practices...
Explanations
by migommi on 2019/10/20 01:20
I just downloaded the app and I’m loving it so far. It’s very similar to the web page. The only problem is that when I answer a question wrong during a lesson review, the explanations don’t appear at the bottom of each choice like on the web page. There’s also the option of pressing “get help” when you want to try again, but when I press it nothing happens. I’m not sure if it has something to do with my device or if it’s something that was just removed from the app. It’s kind of inconvenient because that was always my favourite part of khan academy, since it helped me understand where I went wrong.
Excellent math app
by victor Lin🎖 on 2019/10/19 23:29
I think this is excellent because it teaches you a lot of math problems. Me and my mom loves this app so sometimes you can try it.It sometimes get hard but just...So good.You should try it.Love victor
Terrible
by dhuegxgwid on 2019/10/17 20:45
Extremely laggy Sometimes you write the correct awnser and its wrong. This App should be banned from the US
SAT Practice
by Master Dan R. on 2019/10/17 11:40
I enjoyed the PSAT practice Khan Academy gave me. It helped boost my reading skills and speed. The website turned complex quadratics into readable answers. And recognized on how to improve problems of writing and language. With this in mind, the Academy gave me the magic of learning to make SAT progress. Thank you!

by super kid 422 on 2019/10/17 00:14
As a kid, I hate math so I hate it but I have to do it
Excellent Resource *IF* You Learn Well From Videos; Helpful and Thorough SAT Practice
by Anxious&Obsessed on 2019/10/16 03:19
I have to use Khan Academy for school, but for me it’s not the best choice simply because of its learning style. I’ve noticed there are very few articles to read or ways to learn other than watching a video. For people like me who don’t learn well from videos or need a kinesthetic element like a written portion in order to grasp a concept, Khan is not a great option and there are other resources out there. I often use Khan only to get the time in for a grade and then consult alternative sources for the actual understanding aspect of my education. That said, I do very much appreciate Khan’s SAT prep. I’ve been doing this prep for the past few weeks and I love that you can make yourself a schedule and focus on what you need to focus on. The full length tests are VERY helpful (I wish you could pause them, but I do understand the reasoning behind not being able to) and I like that you can practice the same skill over and over until you grasp it fully. I personally spent five 55-minute intervals on a single skill and I am now more confident in that skill than ever. One thing I don’t like about Khan is the new update (online) that makes it so I can no longer see my progress in terms of minutes per skill. I enjoy the feature where I can see individual problems I’ve completed, but I really liked the bar graph with the activity/day feature. If that could somehow come back, I’d enjoy the experience a lot more. On the app specifically, I can’t seem to find ANYTHING. I know how to edit account information and do lessons, but all of the CollegeBoard information I have synced, the problem count, the test progress, and essentially every other feature I currently enjoy on the online version are simply MISSING. Please bring them back!!!
Broken app?
by annoyedandcnfused on 2019/10/15 17:25
Nothing is loading
Doesn’t fully make use of Apple Pencil
by Stormburn on 2019/10/15 01:18
The built-in scratchpad I use for math exercises does not have pressure support or the option to disable drawing with finger/hand touches for maximum palm rejection. Tilt support would be nice too, but not necessary given the app only has a pen tool rather than a pencil.
Okay for basic functions
by Pixelated_Prophecies on 2019/10/14 22:08
The app is good for watching videos and reading articles, but I wish that I could read, write, & respond to questions on videos and articles as well.
Finally !!!!!
by Risky Report on 2019/10/13 13:06
I have been looking for a while on a educational app that has some entertainment and videos explaining. It caught my sons attention and that matters the most. He loves it and it’s helping, thank you Kahn Academy!!!!!!!!!
Good
by Tbob05 on 2019/10/13 03:28
Really good app and very useful. The only thing would be some re-do’s on the some of the older videos. Just with higher quality.
Not impressed
by KâTë on 2019/10/11 13:14
I was not impressed with this app they don’t have anything I need virtual nerd is better. In my opinion they need more content, and suggestions for students.
Doesn’t work offline
by pogo gamer on 2019/10/11 00:58
I have tried to see if it will work offline on my iPad and it won’t work. But in the description it says you can even work offline.
Lessons crash the app
by WolfieDiscord on 2019/10/10 20:31
When I try to enter a JavaScript lesson, the app crashes.
App doesn’t work
by Luna_wolff on 2019/10/09 22:30
I love this application so much. I think it’s a great tool to use whenever you don’t understand something from your class, but the app doesn’t work. The website works fine and there doesn’t seem to be problems or glitches. I try to do anything and it just says that I have no connection, but I was connected to the WiFi. This has been going on for a while and I was hoping an update would fix it but there doesn’t seem to be anymore coming out. Please fix this. It’s an incredible resource.
Things Missing
by Anonymous5712 on 2019/10/08 13:55
Khan Academy is overall a pretty good app, I’m in middle school so ZI use it to study. There is some things that are missing like how when you re doing a practice session and you don’t have enough room you have to erase everything to do it. I recommend making it so that there is also an erase all option so you don’t waste time erasing your work. Other than that it is a good app and it helps a lot.
How this ruined my life
by Merging dude on 2019/10/08 00:33
Once my dad found out about this game my dad starting making me do this he makes me do it for hours everyday on summer even on school days! It has been hard for me to have fun when I have to work everytime this makes me sad because I can’t have fun also I can’t spend time with my family because I gotta work for my dad I love my parents and grandparents but it sad I can’t spend time with them, please read this Developer
Love the app, wish you can download entire courses
by LizS1977 on 2019/10/03 18:36
I love this app. I’m 41 and taking a pre-algebra refresher course. The tutors explain things better and make me think about the concepts in different ways. I noticed that you can download sections of a course, but not the entire thing. Could that feature be added? Can you also fix the ruler widget so it’s easier to rotate? Can you fix the “Error tracking progress” error. It happens every so often during exercises. I have the latest iOS and app update.
Best app
by iseiahplayerofxbox on 2019/10/03 15:18
This is the best app though u can’t look for everything but at least u can’t cheat
It’s good, but bad
by maritza.123 on 2019/10/02 23:30
I put the app on here for homework and access to it if anyone in my family is using the computer. The topics I’m doing have to do with fractions and fixed numbers but the thing is that there isn’t any space bar so I can be able to put in a mixed number. I thought that this app would be useful when I had situations like these but it just turns out to be awful. Other than that, when I’m working on other things, it’s fine so it’s also pretty good. I just want that space bar on so I can actually do my work
suggestions
by LAEILAAAA on 2019/10/01 02:07
please add drawing on the lessons it’s hard to figure it out in my head

AMAZING!

I just want to thank to whoever made khan academy available to everyone, and to say it it awesome way to learn!
THANK YOU
by jestbdlifndhauVfakekf co on 2019/09/27 14:03
thank you for making this app free and so helpful. ive been looking for apps or course material to prepare me for my ged, just a refresh on everything i learned and some important credits i didn’t receive. you cant even read a good book for free on here, this was very needed and helpful. 5 stars from me!!!
I would have given it 5 stars, but here's the thing:
by FoxLoverYT on 2019/09/27 02:38
so i, a loyal student, has decided to study my math.so i decided to download khan academy. but-heres the thing-i know most of my facts-multiplication facts(2-digitx2-digit)-but on the partial products thing, with the 'find the mistake' most of the time, the 'right' answer is really WRONG. so please fix this.
AWESOME
by homesch!() on 2019/09/26 22:09
i think this khan academy is amazing, my daughter is homeschooled and this is the app she uses half the time and she is very smart and she said she loves the app!! I think people should try it out. She’s in middle school and it helps out a bunch!
The crabbiest App ever
by Bob Pella on 2019/09/26 00:03
Half of the problems don’t make sense
Parent dashboard
by rnjacademy4success on 2019/09/25 16:57
So it looks like the app is limited to only taking courses. There seemed to absolutely no link to the parent dashboard. For my daughters (K through 9th grade) the app seems to great. 4 or 5 Stars. However, for me, it’s really only 1 Star. Yes, I can learn with them & progress, but as a homeschool Mom, what I really need is to access my girls profiles within the app. Or a separate app just for that. Thanks!! I do love Khan Academy! I hope this is addressed soon. Then I’ll change this to 5 Stars!
HAS MY LAST NAME IN IT!!!

Looking for developers response
by DessiDiva 👸🏽 on 2019/09/22 14:26
Every time I open the app it always says content not available right now and it never shows me what’s assigned etc. it does this no matter how many times I update it. The website works fine for me it’s just the app but the app would be more convenient.
TOO SLOW FOR ACTUAL USE
by FrancaisGirl on 2019/09/20 15:01
Using iOS 12.4.1 on iPhone XR with no other apps running & location services turned off.Yes I have LTE date but as of now 5G is a fantasy because its not profitabel enough for the eventual T-Mobile/Sprint merger.This App has slowed down my phone since the very first time regardless of device or operating system.It doesn’t matter how many lessons you are downloading for offline viewing.This App is GARBAGE & your only saving grace is to complete the downloads & view your lessons in offline status.This crap is absolutely useless.I was hoping to rely on this being an performing arts major just trying to pass transfer level algebra.Campus tutoring services don’t know how to educate students with disabilities & their hours are limited.Please stop claiming to help students when your App can’t even handle downloading 10 lessons at the same time without 🥶 up like crazy. Edit:This is an iPhone XR in working condition using the current version of iOS,has NOT been jailbroken,with LTE data & a max of 2-3 other apps open with Background App Refresh turned off.After all that,any App that requires I close all my other apps in order to operate,is seriously trash.Now,I appreciate the fact that its free,which is a much needed service to all public schoolchildren & college students.The truth is that this app is useless for college level math.Literally 60%-70% of the content on this App is for high school math & there is no warning (hey,this is high school algebra NOT college level algebra).Also,apparently if you have more than 10 things downloading under “Bookmarks”.......forget about it.This App is totally unusable & I should not have to turn on Background App Refresh (wasts data,drains battery thereby pumping new iPhone sales) in order for this App to work.Hey,at least it doesn’t crash on startup like it used to do on my iPhone 7 Plus.All my other Apps on here,including heavy duty data drains like Youtube work just fine. This App has the right mission,just the wrong IT people. Oh,yeah.........Apple,please stop allowing your developers to PM people in order to coerce them into changing their negative reviews to positive and not pay them.You know this world runs on money.If you want fake 5 Star reviews (like on Amazon) then you got to pay up,baby. 💰

Just terrible
by BladeboyXL on 2019/09/17 23:10
It may be good for other people but if your in middle school looking for help in math, don’t download this app. This app has no information on what I need help on. It just gives me an exercise. So I became a YouTube guy. Instead of retyping the title of the video and finding nothing, I just go to YouTube and it has everything I need. I wish you could do better
The best, you don’t memorize info, you learn it.
by 133435354645767768 on 2019/09/17 04:58
Yup
Very worth it to Download! Its Free!!
by sjennyG on 2019/09/17 00:04
Im glad i downloaded this App it teaches all subjects and its very helpful! Im glad it’s free because sometimes its very expensive to have a tutor, so the videos that you see here of a teacher explaining every step and solving the problems really help you! There’s all kinds of school Subjects, give it a shot !
Please
by В Русс on 2019/09/14 19:33
Developer, when I try to type in “8 5/2, I expect to type eight and then press the fraction icon, then it said eight is in the five place! I have to click several times to just find the place to type in the eight again! So annoying
HORRIBLE
by dg ccndnnd c on 2019/09/14 18:48
Worst app you could ever get for your kids. They literally send the parents an email making them tell their kids to do math. It tortures their lives. If you wanna torture you’re kids go ahead get it for them and let them fail everything in math class cause their too busy doing khan academy.
Great app but few suggestions
by excaliver51 on 2019/09/14 18:43
This is an amazing app and I really can’t find too many things wrong with it but I do have a few suggestions. There isn’t really much space to draw on the drawing tool if you can’t write small. Maybe you can make it so there is more space on the drawing tool and you can scroll down to get even more space. Another suggestion I have is to add reading lessons. If you don’t know what to put on reading you can make us read a book and tell us questions about it later. You can also make us try to spell words and sound them out. For example if the word was awesome the answer would be awe-some, I think, I’m not good a reading or sounding out words. For the videos that teach us how to do the upcoming tests you can tell us strategies on how to remember what happens in the book. You can also tell us how to sound out words and figure out how to spell words by sounding them out. You can also tell us what kind of information to put into our writing when where writing about the book. Ok I know I said I had no problems with this app but I do have one. If you redo a lesson and get a score lower then the first time you did it, it changes your score to the lower score instead of keeping it the highest score. Sorry if that explanation was bad I’m only nine years old but I was trying to say, if you redo a lesson but get 3 out of 5 answers right and the first time you did it you got 4 out of 5 of the answers right your answer still changes to getting 3 out of 5 answers right. I don’t really like that feature and I don’t think others like it too. Other then that problem this app is amazing! Please don’t stop working on it!

Lifesaver
by V3599 on 2019/09/12 19:42
Khan academy has helped me develop a better understanding of the topics that I am currently learning in school. I love how encouraging it is and how I can get a visual sense of how much I am progressing with the app. The only suggestion I would make is that I would like to be able to cross out and highlight the answer choices in multiple choice questions. This way, it’ll be easier for me to select the correct answer through process of elimination since I am learning on a screen and not on paper.
Why sign in automatically in Safari?
by shiroyume on 2019/09/12 11:16
It is really annoying. I don't want to this feature. My personal information is leaking without my permission. I love to study on Khan academy site, but the app is not good. I hope this feature will be removed in a future version.
Disappointed
by Organy on 2019/09/12 01:07
Why doesn’t this app work. Only parts work for my teen I hope this new update lets this app work. Doesn’t work with my cellular data plan, doesn’t work on my in home WiFi. Whats going on
The worst app ever
by bye bye kaun academy on 2019/09/11 21:36
Hi I don’t mean to be mean but your app made my life stink! My mother forces me to do math every night and it made me think it was my teachers fault until tonight... hi sister was doing khan Academy as usual and she didn’t know her answer was correct so she checked with her calculator The calculator said it was right so she typed in her answer and your app said it was wrong! The worst part is our teacher says if you don’t get 100 it does not count so she was super mad and I was super mad too I wanted to get rid of this whole app but I don’t know how I hope you guys take down the app because it really just makes my life hard but thanks anyways! 😄-fake smile!

BEST APP
by Ashraf Mugalli on 2019/09/08 03:38
Whoever made this app and made it completely free knows the importance of education. This app has everything from early childhood education to advanced AP college level classes and it’s just mind blowing. I love this app I’ve been using it for years and it just keeps getting better. I learn so much on this app if I don’t understand something that my professor explains, I will for sure understand it from here. There is personal financing, college admissions help, and pretty much anything you don’t Learn in most schools. Thank you Khan Academy!
So educational!

by ^&*( on 2019/12/01 14:06
What an incredible app. I’m so impressed. This company deserves loads of money to be thrown at it for making it free. My son has just switched from a Cambridge school to an American School and missed a lot of work. I think we were both about to give up. I didn’t know where to start to help him and being his new school is completely iPad based we felt deep despair at just the thought of trying to navigate through classrooms codes and half working text book apps. Now it’s all here in one place! Simple well explained and the practice really gets your confidence going. He had some maths homework and instead of the total melt down we both would have had trying to work out what was going on we flew through it!! THANK YOU! I love the fact that all the grades are here too so if there is a concept he is struggling with we can go back in the grades to see where that was introduced and work through it! We have been struggling for months trying to find the answer on line. It was only due to the fact that Khan kept coming up that I googled it and found the app. I truly pray this company gets loads of financial support to keep this app going! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!
Looking for a Developer Response
by rslitman on 2018/05/01 02:39
Pretty good app. I am giving it five stars, even though a recent update put everything in deeper layers. I used to be able to see every video, article, and practice exercise for a course, plus its mission if it has one, on the same screen. Now I have to dig deeper. Please return an expanded view to us! Also, we no longer see our consecutive days streak. The iPad app is missing a few things found in the web version, in addition to the consecutive days streak, but it is quite adequate for the learning experience. The most maddening thing is that when you roll out a new version with a major change like this, you still say “Bug fixes and performance enhancements.” Please give this review a Developer Response and let us know that you will {in the future/in future} be detailed with your updates when something major like the whole interface changes. Also, please let us know why the consecutive days counter (more motivating to me than energy points and about as motivating as the badges) was removed and if there’s a chance we can get it back. Thanks!
Problems with progress
by renegade3115 on 2019/04/19 00:56
I love the new layout and of course I love Kahn academy. Which is why I gave it three stars. But I’ve gone through course reviews and challenges and keep having to redo because there’s an error saving an exercise. I just tried taking the course challenge and got through all the problems but the last I got an error. So I re-entered the challenge only to find that the progress I’d made on the 29 problems up to the last had also disappeared and I was being required to take the entire challenge of 30 problems over again. As I’d already spent my allotted time for Kahn for the day, I’ll have to come back tomorrow and start again. To be sure this is just a review course for me so in the grand scheme of things I could proceed to the more advanced course without problem, but I just so like seeing that 100% on every course. UPDATE: after the latest update, I’ve gotten through challenges and practice without an app error and my progress is saved, so as of now, anyway, I’m quite pleased with the app.
Life Saver for a College Student
by Landis the Destroyer on 2018/05/10 20:09
This app has helped me so much in college when I didn’t understand concepts and formulas. I don’t know why people are complaining about not seeing their progress on this app or that it lacks in depth because Khan Academy isn’t supposed to be a replacement for a class. He goes over the basics of whatever subject you’re researching because you can’t do advanced material without learning the basics first. Also, progress is in the mind and you shouldn’t have to rely on an app to tell you that. In college, professors don’t have the time to do one-on-one sessions with students and quickly go through a whole year of subjects separated into segments in five months on specific days. I sometimes can’t keep up so I use Khan Academy after homework hours to look up sections/concepts I missed or couldn’t understand in very little time to teach my myself the missing components. Thank you Khan Academy for making my academic life easier.
AWFUL
by steV3nom on 2018/10/06 18:42
This app is honestly embarrassing, it crashes within 10 seconds of opening it, and that’s not a one-time runtime error or anything, this is, fully updated on iOS 12, crashing before I can even access a lesson. I have courses I need to complete for my programming class and I can’t even start to explain how terrible this app is. I can understand a whole new iOS version coming out and there being a crash bug or something not working quite right after launch, that’s totally to be expected, but this. This is honestly disgraceful. They haven’t updated this app in over 3 weeks, and it has been unusable for over 3 weeks as a result. The service itself is honestly fine, but this app is disgustingly broken. If I could actually complete some parts of my lesson when I am away from my PC that would be great, so my thought process at that point would be to download the app, and sure enough it isn’t stable enough to stay open for more than 10 seconds. As a programming student, I find this mistake on their part absolutely embarrassing and I can’t believe it still has not been patched. 0/5 stars.
Struggling with biology? This is the best educator you’ll ever have.
by SuzanneKanj on 2019/05/11 05:07
I’m so in love with Khan Academy, and I’m so grateful for it!! It’s really simple to use, and it has all the subjects that I need. And it’s free!!!! I am a foreign student who recently moved to the US, and I just started my first semester at cuny as a biology/premed student. Biology is hard, especially that English isn’t my first language. The textbook is really hard to understand and I have to translate most of the words, but Khan Academy made it so much easier for me. The language that the professor uses in the videos is really simple and understandable, yet academic and professional! The best thing is that when I don’t understand something, I can repeat the videos as many as I want!! In addition, there are articles about the same subject that I can read after or before the video! I just want to thank everyone in Khan Academy! You guys are the best!!
Would be perfect if it weren’t for app-breaking bugs.
by Pawkitz on 2018/05/26 14:39
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.
Horrible interface, and full of glitches
by Hunt.tr04 on 2019/05/16 03:20
I find this interface to be full of lots of glitches, and the interface self is a pain. It may take you 10 seconds to solve a problem, but a minute jut to be able to type it into the box. And it’s not like it’s a small screen. I use tons of other apps with iPad compatibility that’s flawless. I thought the message was to make life easier, and give anybody the opportunity to learn. But with an app like this, I’d rather carry around the textbook. Also what’s the point of mastery challenges or points, if you can’t access it with the app itself. And on a final note, I would like it if the app wasn’t so glitchy, the pages constantly quitting, going crazy and just being so slow. If you are a teacher, please spare your students, practice problems and videos are fine but please, do not replace the textbook. After a year of using khan rather than a textbook and old-fashioned practice worksheets, I came in knowing more about pre-algebra than after, and it’s not like I’m not trying. It’s just so hard keeping up with it and teaching yourself
Great Education, some problems with new update
by Jazzafan:D on 2019/07/22 14:29
First of all, Khan Academy is a great app for learning. This is what makes me give it five stars. I appreciate that I don’t have to pay and have a plethora of interesting things to learn about. This is also really cool for maybe second-world countries, for people that can afford a cheap-ish device but not an education. The new update removed the feature where you would have to ace every test, including the unit test, perfectly in order to get to Level 5 and be done with that unit. It was hard to get 100 percent sometimes, but it really pushed me to learn and do my best. Now, there is no level feature and it makes me feel like it’s a little harder to navigate what you need to work on. I still appreciate the videos and exercises, but i thought the level feature was the cherry on top. Bring it back?
Just like KA on the computer, but with some cons
by TomJadeLance on 2018/08/02 20:25
Khan Academy is great. Truly amazing app. All my subjects were synced, everything was exactly like on the website. The only thing that was really bad is the drawing features, the ones on the problems that help you solve the problem on the problem itself. The first line drawn is smooth and nice, but after that there is extreme lag, and the lines are all choppy and impossible to write numbers with. It takes about 10 seconds to write a single number if I want it to be legible. (I am using the Apple Pencil) In the drawing mode, it also takes away the problem. If there was a diagram there that I wanted to mark up in order to help me with the problem, it disappears. This is a pretty big thing for me, especially if Khan Academy doesn’t work with split screen. I cannot work on the app itself, a big bummer. Besides that, it is Khan Academy. Tons of great courses with great teaching and a great experience.
Great app!
by Mustafa3170 on 2018/06/20 17:50
I had an issue with the back button in the app but you guys quickly worked to fix it! Thank you Khan Academy! I’ve changed the 4 star rating to a 5 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.
Love it, when it works
by Jodyjar on 2018/08/26 22:13
I was really excited when I realized I could do the Khan Academy math exercises on my iPhone. I am trying to get caught up in math so I can take college calculus. And for a day, it worked great. But now, the app is showing all the numbers doubled and sometimes overlapping, and I keep getting answers wrong because I can't see them properly. I tried restarting the app, but that didn't help. And there is no place to report the problem. Help!!! Update: the number doubling problem wasn't resolved by uninstalling and reinstalling the app. I'm working through this with support, and meanwhile just using the website. However, I also can't see anymore what I've already completed versus what I need to work on, without clicking on every topic to find out. Super frustrating!
Good, but I’m missing a few things.
by Ana Bananie on 2018/01/23 21:05
Khan Academy is a superb learning resource, whether you’re a young person still in school, a young adult in college, or just someone who’s looking to brush up on specific subjects. I enjoy using it, however, there are some things that can be added, taken away, and improved upon: 1) Add the ability to view unit and subject progression within the app. This option is available on the web version of KA, and it really motivates me to complete lessons! However, I cannot view my progress within the iOS app, which represses my excitement and causes me to not use it as often, which is unfortunate. 2) Allow the user to make all videos watched if we’ve reached 100% on units! While the videos are helpful when I’m confused about a specific topic, most of the time, I already understand the concepts explained in the video, so sitting through a drawn out video stifles the momentum I build. 3) Sometimes when I finish a unit, I do forget some of the information given, so it’d be nice to be reminded to review important concepts when KA recognizes I haven’t taken the initiative to review on my own. Besides that, I really enjoy using Khan Academy as a whole, and with the changes I suggested, I believe it could become an even better and more intuitive learning resource.
Amazing and Helpful
by Racheal T. on 2019/07/20 04:56
This app is amazing! It helps me a lot and I definitely improved in every subject! Khan Academy is my #1 absolute favorite learning app! This learning app has many subjects such as: Math, science, etc. That’s not the only good thing! This app is very organized! They have: Kindergarten, 1st Grade, 2nd grade, all the way up to 8th grade! After clicking what grade you’re in, you can choose what you want to learn! Ratios, Algebra, etc. Once you’ve click what you want to learn, they have videos and practices for you after learning it, they give you a quiz! Just like what REAL teachers do! What makes this game more fun is that they give you energy points whenever you get things correct! You also earn badges! I am in LOVE with this game! Thanks a lot for the help! 😊
An amazing app with one weakness 😭!
by HeavenJumper on 2018/07/28 12:05
My only gripe is that you can not multitask with this application unless it is a very narrow sliding window. I really want to take notes while watching the videos and rewind at the same time to understand a concept. But the best I can do is to make the video float in my note taking app. I am an engineering student and I use my iPad Pro 12.9 for all my studies and note taking. Let me put this out here first, this app is amazing for starting at one level and expanding your knowledge at your own pace! I really want to give this app a 4.9 stars but sadly that’s just not an option. Please keep up the great work guys! I downloaded the app to my phone and I guess I’ll be squinting until the update comes. But trust me, it’s well worth it 😂
Makes learning algebra II fun (not sarcasm)
by amaries239 on 2018/07/30 20:12
I probably would not have been able to succeed in my Algebra II class without Khan Academy. What’s great about this app to me are the quizzes and tests- if I don’t understand a problem, the app suggests video to me, and also gives hints/ a walkthrough of how to solve the problem in brief increments, so if I end up remembering, I can solve on my own. Also, when you retake a test, it gives you different questions each time. This app is almost the equivalent to having a free tutor. In addition, the guy who makes the math videos is fantastic at explaining any math concept. I rarely have questions after watching his videos, and even more rarely after reading the walkthroughs with them. This app is phenomenal, 6/5 stars
Overall good app
by celadonflame on 2018/04/23 14:39
While the app can be a bit of a bother to navigate at times, the benefits of using it far exceed the negatives. Additionally, there were some issues in a previous version of the app that have been promptly fixed by the developer. I believe this shows that the team behind Khan Academy and its app are working hard to improve their products. And given that access to Khan Academy and all its features is completely free, I’d say that’s a pretty good deal. In the end, Khan Academy provides for free what others will try to swindle you endlessly for: educational content. I’m looking forward to the future of this app and the website that coincides it. I recommend that those seeking to sharpen their mind give it a try as well.
Great to update me on newer teaching methods, but . . .
by Joshuasherman38 on 2018/11/26 19:07
I downloaded the app on my iPhone X to learn more about current teaching methods, as it’s been a few decades since I went to school. Having a 2 year old that I want to jump start had me looking for options and I was recommended Khan by a friend. All in all, I’ve had no problems with the methods, other than updating myself from what I remember. The problems I’m currently having, though, are how you’re required to use certain functions in the program. The biggest pain in the math/geometry areas is drag and drop ruler function for measuring. It’s extremely difficult on the iPhone X, as trying to nab the “turn” points on the ruler usually ends up snagging and dragging the entire page around. With problems where you’re measuring the perimeter for lengths, it would be easier for the ruler to be tapped where it would align itself to the angle datum in place, then drag the ruler to measure it. I know that’s not a fix-all as some problems might need the user to make that angle drag, but I’m only up to the third grade and haven’t found them yet 😬. Thanks for the product you provide, with continued improvement it can be an extremely beneficial app for parents wanting to help their kids or learn themselves!
It’s amazing!
by Ilikepandasandtacos on 2018/07/29 18:13
I love this app, it helps me work and in between I can watch informational videos to help me, just I had an idea. I this they should have two big problems with this. firstly, half of the time my work space online, so I have to do it multiple times, and just spam it so I forget what the problem is, which leads me to my second big problem with this app, is that while you’re on my work space I can’t see the problem I have to solve, and I forget it, and since I can only see the title of the section, I think it’s that, so you should make the problem appear onscreen while you’re using the work area and fix that little... bug. But other then that, it’s amazing, and I just found it!
No Progress
by MsHooch on 2018/05/13 17:17
First off, I absolutely love khan academy! I’ve been using it for over a year on my laptop and log in almost daily, but lately I’ve been riding the bus or the train to Uni. WiFi’s not available and there’s not enough room to get my laptop out so when I found the app I got exited thinking I could use my phone. Unfortunately, when I logged in, I found that I had really just downloaded a blank profile of the website. Even after logging in the app provides no indication as to where I left off, my progress in any of the subjects, or even what courses I’m currently focusing on. Since the website is so simple and helpful, is it possible for the developers to just match the app to the site? The app would be really useful, but without progress tracking I find it’s better to just log in to the main site through explorer on my phone.
Please add a share video button.
by reviewer Malcolm x on 2019/01/01 06:30
I've been using Khan academy for the past 5 years and honestly it's taught me so much. But there's one big glaring issue. I've recently been trying to teach my friends math, and there is no way to share one of the videos I'm currently watching. This makes it extremely difficult to help my friends learn something, because as of now the only way I can show them the same content is by logging in on your website, and having to dig through page after page until I can find the video and then copy paste them the link. If you guys were to add a share video button inside your app I would greatly appreciate it and it would do wonders for my friends and I thank you.
Love it. Suggestions.
by Lucy Blossom🌸 on 2019/11/26 06:00
Love the app as it gives you a variety of topics to choose from. Whether it's math, it's science, or it's writing it can all be practiced on right here. They even have an option for you to practice the SAT's! If you don't understand what you are doing or need help, there are videos you could watch I do love this app, however I wish there were two features we have on the browser version compared to the app. It would be really helpful if I could write on the page in order to help me solve what I'm doing or counts my time even if I am off the app to solve the problem. Another thing I wished they would add is the progress to see how long I have been working.
Streaks, Badges, and More CS Content
by nc04102012 on 2019/04/10 02:53
I think it would be nice and motivating if I could see my streaks and badges in the iOS app, just like I can online. I miss being able to do that. Additionally, it would be really helpful to have more CS content on Khan Academy, especially based on standard CS curriculums in college, like data structures in Java and Python, discrete math, functional programming, and C Programming / Systems Programming. Also, it would be nice if there were tutorials about machine learning, human-computer interaction, computational linguistics, artificial intelligence, software engineering, and other “sub-subjects” within CS. I think it would be very useful for college students in rigorous CS programs, especially in times when over-enrollment, lotteries, and the inability to get into certain classes is a very prominent issue across colleges and universities in the United States.
Amazing
by Clara Kap. on 2018/08/27 02:58
A really really fantastic app. There are very big video varieties to choose from about the specific math topic you need and each of them are very helpful. Most teachers tend to only repeat what they’re teaching about one subject once (from what I have experienced,) but with Khan Academy it’s a different story. Khan Academy presents videos of any math subject you need help on and you can repeat them anytime you want and there are a multiple videos to choose from. This is a great boost because each video has someone explain their way of solving a math subject, that way you can choose which one makes you understand that subject more. Overall great educational app, planning on keeping it.
Great Educational App but a few adjustments needed
by appreviewshister on 2018/08/28 02:37
I find everything quite helpful especially the test preparation. However, I don’t like when I finish the units and it says, “error loading summary,” something like that. Then it doesn’t count the questions that I just completed. I also found that the app does have a tendency to crash. Finally, I enjoy having a place where I can write down equations, etc, but I don’t enjoy when I can’t see the problem. I click the writing tool, then the screen is white covering the whole problem. It would be nice to be able to see it. All these problems are very minor , but have become an inconvenience for me. Hopefully these can be fixed in the next update.
Don’t regret 😁❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
by Girlsgametoo! on 2019/11/14 23:30
This game was a recommended by my aunt’s boyfriend buts that’s besides the point. I’m in love with this application ! However, I wish there was a higher level, like if you are really amazing at one subject you can level up. This might be a feature, and I’m just a starter. I also wish that you can see how you’re doing compared to other students in you’re grade or subject. Although this might bring student’s confidence go down,maybe there should be a setting that asks “enable board of leaders” or something else. You can also use my header, I think that’s what it’s called,. . I mean this program was free so, i do not regret purchasing this application .
New update bums me out
by Rapsidy on 2019/04/03 01:38
I would love to give this 5 stars, Khan Academy is a wonderful concept and I am so grateful to them, but the new update is really bumming me out. I’m studying for the MCAT and I often listened to videos on my Bluetooth while driving in the car or doing chores. I liked closing the phone screen so I wasn’t distracted by the video pictures, but now I can’t do that. Before, I could have my phone closed, I could be on other apps, I could be on the web, and the video would play in the background. Now, unless the app is open, the videos will not play, and I have no idea why this function was taken away from us with the update. Please bring this function back and I will happily update to 5 stars
Excellent for studying
by Michiyo-Nakashima on 2018/12/01 23:05
I use this app to help me study and get more practice in my science and math classes(chemistry and statistics). I absolutely recommend the site, but the iPhone app can be a bit wonky. I wish they would fix little things such as when there exponents in questions about dimensional analysis, the formatting is e.g “2160 min2degrees, write this as s2degrees” I was finding it difficult in several chemistry equations, when dealing with exponents that the formatting was incorrect. Clearly it was supposed to be “2160 min^2/ degrees” but I suppose it’s the way a mobile format works? I really genuinely hope they fix it soon because it’s the little things like that that can make it so hard to study for a test while on the go.
Good but to many bugs!
by Edwin___xx on 2018/06/04 19:05
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!
Awesome, but I have some suggestions.
by Devano Bethel on 2019/06/14 18:57
First I would like to say I am very grateful for Khan academy, and without it I probably wouldn’t have gotten into UMTYMP. It is a math class at the University of Minnesota that gets you through calculus before 12th grade. My life has been a lot better when I qualified, and without Khan academy I am almost certain I wouldn’t have made it there. Two things have been annoying me in this app though. 1. It won’t let me do missions. I took one mission today, and suddenly it says I have to wait 7 hours before I take another one. This is really annoying, and I don’t know what the point of that is. I like learning at a fast pace and not being able to master these limits my learning, and wastes my time. 2. For the exercises you have this scratch pad. It is nice, but previously there was an undo button and now there isn’t one. This makes it really tedious to erase. It hasn’t been much of a problem for me since I got a notebook for Khan academy, but I think it will help a lot of other people. Also since I am doing geometry, sometimes you don’t want to to it in your notebook because you would have to draw everything in the problem. These are all the suggestions I have right now. The app is really good, but hopefully you can consider my advice.
Good, but has some problems
by Kai the music fan on 2019/04/22 00:37
So far I absolutely love the app and my teacher uses it for AP Gov, but it has some major flaws. In the most recent update the app has a huge problem with loading times. What used to take only a few seconds now can take up to three minutes to load. I know that it is not my IPad’s fault for it is only two years old and I still have over half of total memory remaining. By far the biggest problem is that whenever I open my profile the screen will just completely freeze. I waited for over ten minutes during this and nothing happened, so I was forced to close and reopen the app. Also, sometimes the buttons will just completely disappear forcing me to close the app once again.
Navigation Issues and writing the letters
by BroadwayDude1 on 2018/03/18 21:21
This is an amazing app! It totally works in every way and the glitches that bothered me so much in the past. Just one minor fix so that I could give this app five stars. We need a menu button in our videos and tests. I watch a bunch of videos straight, with tests and stuff, and then If I wan’t to go back to the course, I have to press the back button a million times and go through every single lesson i watched and every test I’ve completed. But the one thing that bothered me the most is that when I encounter one of those articles, I’m just stuck. I enter one, I complete the mini tests, i read the article, and there’s no next button or previous button to go to. I have to double tap and swipe the app and get back on it. Also, I have been trying to write the letter O for a problem on variables, but I keep getting 0. If you can make it so that we can have the option to type out our answers, that would be great. And that’s about it. Oh wait, if you can make the profile a bit more manageable like in the computer, that would be great. Thanks!
Add this feature please!!
by TheRadMad on 2018/03/20 21:08
I’ve been using Khan Academy for a while now and it’s helped me understand Algebra more. It’s taught me a lot and has a great way to teaching and explaining the subject. I wish it had a feature that’d let you bookmark a subject, rather then a specific lesson in the subject. So we don’t have to scroll around looking for it and it’s easily accessible in our bookmarks. Like for instance, instead of bookmarking every topic in US History. I can just bookmark US History. It would be easier since I can just click on subject and pick the topic I need to understand, rather than going through every bookmark. Thanks for reading if you did. Please add this feature.
Great material
by @zachtammaro13 on 2018/01/22 19:42
This app is perfect even if your teachers do not use Khan academy, considering most courses like Biology still follow the common curriculum. Some of my classes my teachers will only touch on a subject and not thoroughly go into it (which did some reason I need to have in order to understand even the basics), which Khan academy helps with. Usually my Biology teacher is surprised with how much more I know, just from watching 12 minute videos. Often if I do not know a certain part of my chapter, I can find a video on it on Khan Academy which really helps. SAT prep is great too! It pairs with your PSAT grades allowing you to touch on what you have the toughest time with.
Probably the best platform to learn on.

I would like to thank Khan Academy for teaching me stuff like physics but not only teach but allow me to remember stuff and understand stuff that none of my teachers could teach me. As an honors student, teachers always felt rush with the few time we had (42 minutes) and therefore skip making sure we all understood and get mad when we or I at least asked logical questions that needed to be answered for comprehension not only for me but for my classmates since I’m not bragging but top 10 smartest and if I don’t get it surely others my not either. Thank you for being so useful and having time to read this review.
Excellent for homeschool
by Mrs. Strongarm on 2018/11/27 15:26
Our family has been using Khan Academy for math almost exclusively for my eldest child after pulling her from public school to homeschool in 2012. Now that she’s in grade 6 she can (and prefers to) do the work independently. I love that I can track her progress without having to mark the work. I would only recommend a child using Khan Academy independently if the child is self motivated, learns easily through video-based teaching, and is trustworthy with the computer (ie not farting around when they’re supposed to be focused on their math). My other kids are using workbooks, but as they mature we may use Khan Academy for them as well.
Ughhhhhh the update is TRASH
by girly_gwen on 2018/08/17 01:03
So when I first got this I was ADDICTED. It even had the thing where you can write the answers instead of type. It crashed sometimes, but it wasn’t bad. So when I update...... Stuff is MUCH harder to find. U should just be able to find it quick. It’s VERY hard to “learn anything”. Then, THEY TOOK AWAY THE ABILITY TO WRITE THE ANSWERS. I used that feature A LOT because it was quicker than having to find the right numbers to type. AND it says that MY ANSWERS ARE WRONG. When I recheck it, it loads for about two minutes and the app crashes. The font is now glitchy and messed up. What happened? When u do an update, just fix the BUGS. That’s all u need to do. It’s kinda like the new version of musically or Snapchat. Plzzzzz fix?????
Explanations
by migommi on 2019/10/20 01:20
I just downloaded the app and I’m loving it so far. It’s very similar to the web page. The only problem is that when I answer a question wrong during a lesson review, the explanations don’t appear at the bottom of each choice like on the web page. There’s also the option of pressing “get help” when you want to try again, but when I press it nothing happens. I’m not sure if it has something to do with my device or if it’s something that was just removed from the app. It’s kind of inconvenient because that was always my favourite part of khan academy, since it helped me understand where I went wrong.
Could Be Better...

Overall, Khan Academy is an amazing idea. I’ve been using the app for years now. This means that I have been through many many many updates. Khan Academy has gotten to a point where I cant even figure out how to navigate through the app. There are some new things about it that are just dumb now. My least favorite part is the scratch paper. When you are finished and go back to the normal part to submit your answer you have to go back to the pen to see it again. The wort part though, is the eraser. The size is way too small. Instead it should be adjustable so that it doesn’t take ten minutes to erase your work and start again. I think that Khan Academy should have just kept the same layout that it did when I started using the app in 2014.
Khan Academy
by Batlover2005 on 2019/03/11 12:55
I love how Khan Academy works for you! It’s sooo fun doing all these things in one app that you don’t need to go to your App Store and get app that’s like $5 or more. Some people hate the app well because it crashes a lot on them yeah I feel the same way you do sometimes. Why can they just fix the problem the point is that it takes time and effort for putting good reviews. They just don’t make one or two things in an app no way they do all sorts of things in the app. So if you ever see an app in the App Store that is Khan Academy tell yourself this which app is better? Thank You Khan Academy for making this app!👌😎😄
Khan academy is great for learning, if your patient

Good app for free learning!! However, it ALWAYS has “error problems”, whenever I answer a question and it’s wrong, I click on “hint” to see what I did wrong and it takes me out of the practice problems or tests, and says “error try again in a few moments”, but I never get to see what I did wrong because it moves onto the next question. This “error problem” keeps happening... so I go to the AppStore to see if there’s an update on the khan academy app and i see multiple captions that says “bug fixes has been fixed” BUT THE ERROR THING STILL KEEPS HAPPENING. My WiFi is not the problem because I use this app any where I go(friends house, cousins house, etc). I click on “help” after I get the answer wrong to SEE what I did wrong but it gets this “error” and makes me get out of the problems i was doing.
Great for studying on the go
by Zacary859 on 2018/07/21 03:25
I love this app, like the title of this review says it is great for people who aren’t always around their computer. One thing I wish was developed more was the download feature so one can download content for offline use. Being in a location where internet is slow and scarce it is a important feature to me. The issue is that my connection is so slow that at times I cannot tell if the app has given up downloading he content or if my download speed is super slow. Last night I left my phone on overnight to download and none of the bookmarked lessons downloaded at all (the percentage downloaded did not increase).
Love but
by kindones on 2018/09/08 21:10
I wish there were more for elementary grades in science and history etc. my child has 42 students and 1 teacher this year. Last year was 35 and 1 teacher. This year she’s having a hard time as that’s to many for 1 teacher so I’m compensating when she struggles with khan academy for math. I just wish it went more into science like it does for high school/college. Khan academy kids is to young. Thank you! It has helped already this first week of school. The disruptions have caused 3 days of homework where very limited instruction was given. So thankful we could learn multiples and division of 10’s here. You really are doing the world a great service
Lacking in some areas
by C0okiemonster on 2018/08/30 21:03
The app version lacks the SAT problems the computer version has, and the main reason I wanted to download this app was because of that. Also, when I complete a task with the 4 problems they give and press the done button, the app does not do anything and just stays still. I would have to press the back button, but sometimes it freezes. Another big problem is that the videos will not stop! I click on a video and exit out, but sometimes the video continues, and I hear that guy blabbering on about the topic. Sigh. Other than these, I like the app because of the diverse topics with questions you can answer. If I could give this a 3.5 stars, then I would.
Very helpful app
by Ching Chong Lee on 2018/08/18 14:39
I started using this app because the college I want to attend refers to Khan Academy. I am now studying Mathematics from this app and find that the app is invaluable. It includes lots of concepts and exercises with great features like mastery skills, badges and being able to change avatars. Although I prefer using Khan academy website to this iOS app because of the large screen , I still enjoy learning from this app coz I can use this app wherever I go. I am also grateful for getting a quick reply whenever I report my problems. Thank you very much for your great efforts , "Sal khan" and "Khan Academy Team" .
Success Sounds
by Crowe2320 on 2018/06/10 00:05
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.
Best educational app
by Vani8909 on 2018/04/20 00:18
This app really teaches you almost anything you want to learn from math, to science, biology, and a lot more. Not only do they give you lesson videos, they also challenge you with tests on many subjects. My daughter is in 3rd grade and for homework besides her school worksheets, I have her read 30 mins and do 30 mins of math on this app everyday including weekends. It had really helped her excel in math and is the highest reader in her class. I’m very grateful this app is free. I can tell the developers really care about the education of our future or else they’d be charging for the education.
Math
by ms. thaao on 2019/02/01 23:23
I highly recommend this site or app to anyone who has trouble with Math or anything. I always use this app/site because the videos explains it slowly to me and I can rewind the part I don’t understand to understand it better. He does goes fast, but with the video, you can slow it down and rewind it. It’s not where you’re in a class and have to ask questions after class to understand it better. I always come back to this app/site for Math. I love it and I hope everyone continues or choose to use this app/site. Good luck everyone!!!
