EssayShark app review: experts available 24/7 for essay help



Being a student can be stressful at times, especially when a deadline’s fast approaching and you’re not prepared. Some of us simply aren’t that great at time management and missing a deadline can adversely affect grades and may even affect your future. My time as a student may be in the past, but I can certainly relate to the stress of a research paper that’s approaching its due date. There are many online resources available to help, but most of them still require you to do most of the legwork. If you’re just not prepared for writing a winning essay it’s probably a good idea to seek out some real-world help.

It’s probably not a surprise to most of you that there’s a great app available for helping students at all levels called EssayShark. This useful little app gives you access to experts anytime of the day with knowledge about any subject you can think of. It’s a refined app that’s relatively user-friendly and it’s compatible with all of your iOS devices including the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. The app itself is free, but accessing available experts will require in-app purchase.  

EssayShark: Online Paper Help And Writing Homework Tutoring Service


Getting Started

Before you can start using this app you will have to login using your email to create an account, but it’s a one-time process and it only takes a couple of seconds. The app will then give you a brief walk-through explaining how things work and then you can also access a demo order which shows you some of the apps main features and how they are used.

Team of Experts

EssayShark, as a service, has been around for a number of years now. It actually got its start back in 2009 and in the time between then and now it’s developed a reputation that’s attracted a team of experts for pretty much any subject. Accessing the knowledge of these experts is as simple as registering for the app, filling out an order form with exactly what type of help you’re looking for, and choosing from a host of available experts with detailed knowledge of your subject.

Perhaps, the most impressive thing about this app is that they really do have experts with knowledge in every subject you can think of. It doesn’t matter whether you need help with a history paper, a scientific research paper, or a philosophy paper. If you’re having trouble with any academic subject, this is the app to turn to.

Chat with Experts 24/7

Not only does EssayShark give you access to hundreds of available experts on any topic, they’re also available to you anytime you need them. This service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week on any day of the year. In my day, when you were facing a deadline in college it meant a lot of cramming and probably a sleepless night so I have to admit I’m a little jealous that this service wasn’t available back then. It’s important to keep in mind though it does raise an ethical question as this service doesn’t just stop at advice – these experts will actually write the paper for you if you require them to. They leave it up to you to decide whether that’s the right thing to do or not.

On the positive side, as a student, this app gives you the ability to tap into a wealth of knowledge in order to improve your own essay writing skills. These experts are available whenever you need them to explain every little aspect of how to write a good paper. If it’s 2AM in the morning and you just can’t sleep you can fire up this app and access a little education. When used in this way, there really is no ethical dilemma at all.

Sometimes, you may not need or want someone to write a paper for you, but you would like access to some samples papers in the field you’re writing on to get some ideas. This app can also provide you with samples to be used for inspiration. In many cases a student simply gets stuck on how to write in the proper format and that’s when this app really comes in handy. 

Choose an Expert Based on Customer Ratings

Choosing an expert isn’t a shot in the dark with this app. Not only can you choose experts by category, but you can also access their customer ratings to see what other students that have used their services think of them. The final choice of whether or not to accept an expert is up to you and as an added bonus you don’t have to pay until you’re satisfied with the work they’ve completed the job as requested. Payment can be made using your PayPal account.

Store Papers In-app or Save to the Cloud

EssayShark gives you a couple of different ways that you can store papers you’ve paid for. You can save them within the app itself and print them when necessary, or you can save them to your favorite cloud service such as iCloud or Google Drive. It really is a versatile app designed to be as user-friendly as possible.

Pros and Cons


  • Simple set up and great introductory walk-through
  • Experts available on any subject
  • These experts are available 24/7
  • You can use the app for writing whole papers or simply accessing advice
  • Samples available
  • Choose experts based on customer ratings
  • Save papers in-app or to the cloud


  • Having someone write a paper for you raises ethical dilemmas

Help When You Need it

Overall, EssayShark seems to be a great service that really has the potential to help students in all walks of life. There seems to be no limit to the number of subjects that you can get help for and the fact that this help is available 24/7 is quite impressive. I do have some concerns about the ethical nature of this app, but if students use it more as a tool to get help rather than to do the work for them then it definitely has a lot of merit.
