Ratings and Reviews
My favourite app!
It is so easy to create content and use it in my classroom. My students know exactly what is expected of them. They like the ability to tick of tasks when they are completed. A great range of materials can be added easily to the course. It just works!
It would be great if the camera roll ran the other way when inserting images. (Newest to oldest photos). I have to scroll through the entire camera roll to get to the photo I want.
Allow for it to be used when multitasking
This app is great for school but a little feature like allowing it to be used when multitasking on iPad Air 2 can help improve the experience. It is annoying when I have a document open on it and need to write in google docs.
Horrible writing tool
Why is there no eraser? You have to undo back to the point where you annotated just to erase a line. There are also other issues, such as when saving, I re-enter the document and all my text and annotations disappear. Why does iTunesU have to exit out of a document when saving? If these problems were fixed it would make the app actually usable and reliable.
