    Love this app I have both tvtrope apps and use them both. People that gave it low scores where can I download your tropes app...?

    When I have to act like I know what I'm talking about with a subject, I refer here and no one can tell the difference. Yes I know my friends can see this.

    I enjoy browsing on my phone more than the computer. Every so often, though, search stops working and there's seemingly no way to fix it until it wants to work again. If this was straightened out I'd give five stars.

    The latest update is nice. The theme changing is great for oleds but the tablet mode needs a switch to be able to turn it off.

    No pages are loading, not random and also not from the search. Looks interesting but can't get it to actually work... I understand now that this is a problem caused by the website. However, reinstalling didn't fix this issue for me.

    On the rare occasions this app works correctly, it is beyond compare. For the other 75% of the time, it's broken. Unfortunately, the only alternative is even worse.

    I don't know who spent this much time making an app exclusively for TV Tropes, but its the best at what it does.
