What's New in Version 3.6
• iTunes U collections were migrated to Apple Podcasts and no longer appear in the iTunes U app. You can now view iTunes U collections in the Podcasts section of iTunes on Mac or PC, or in the Podcasts app on iOS devices or Apple TV.
• Performance improvements for accounts with a large number of courses
You guys managed to massively mess up a great thing by moving the “collections,” ie. lecture videos with no accompanying bells and whistles, to the Podcasts app. Like many things that Apple has done in the last few years, this migration was sloppy and full of flaws, not the least of which is the fact that I can only seem to access these collections from my iPhone running iOS 10, and not from my flashy new iPad Pro running iOS 11. This migration has destroyed everything I loved about iTunes U and what would have been a crisp, clean 5 Star app is now useless to me and only gets one star because that’s the worst review I can give it.
Why would you get rid of this feature?
This was the only thing apple had in scoring number one in education
What a failure to remove
A couple month ago I stated getting deductions on my bank account. I have repeatedly called and emailed for help with this. I get the generic “someone will get back with you shortly”! It’s been two months and many phone calls later. I have yet to hear from anyone. I don’t download music or videos. Not impressed with your customer service.
