Four stars. This app has already been extremely handy. I keep a number of HTML/CSS eBooks handy for reference but the search feature of this app saves me a lot of time. I'd like to see something similar for CSS and jQuery!

-Kenny Gutierrez, Rockwall, TX

I loved this app and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for an HTML reference. The fact that it is on your phone and is always with you is great; another book I don't have to keep on my shelf or in my bag!

-Andrew, Danvers, MA

If you write HTML, this is a bargain at $1.99. The only extra feature you might wish for is a CSS reference in the same app, since HTML & CSS development often happen simultaneously. Something for a future edition, perhaps.

-David Havelin

This is a great app that is well worth its price.

-Chris Harback

This is a handy, inexpensive HTML reference guide that's in my pocket, wherever I go. O'Reilly puts some great information at your fingertips.
