Customer Reviews

Full-featured, but forgets your place!

This app very nicely organizes materials and provides a host of features for the user. It would be much-improved if it remembered where a user left off. Unfortunately, every time you close the app for an extended period, you must start again at the beginning: digging into your selected class, lesson, material—and in the case of video, scrubbing to where you left off. Because it doesn't remember your place in a downloaded video. How was this overlooked? It's baffling considering that in Apple's other apps, videos DO remember your place. If this is corrected, the app truly deserves 5 stars. Until then—4, because it needlessly wastes a user's time day in and day out.

iPad only courses not clearly indicated.

Although I also have a MacBook Pro, I finally decided to check out this app on my iPhone 6+ because that is more readily available. After checking out the catalog for quite a while, I happened to pick a course which requires an iBook text that is only available for download on an iPad. (Really?? How many Apple products do I need to own?) This platform limitation was not indicated anywhere in the title, description, or even in the course syllabus. It's too painful going through the catalog and the course information to ultimately be disappointed in this way. I'll be looking for more positive reviews of this app before I try again.

One Problem

Whenever you're watching a video on a specific lecture whenever you exit iTunes U the video goes away and you have to start all over and fast-forward which becomes a little annoying I wish that the video or videos with memorize where you left off last evening when you exit out or go to another video simultaneous. I hope the next update will resolve this minor issue. But I really love this app and I hope it will get increasingly more friendly for users.
