Ratings and Reviews
It wouldn’t be my favourite method of revision as the podcasts seem rather boring and tiring. They don’t cover topics properly, and they don’t repeat the information which makes it harder to remember.
The download feature doesn’t work correctly, which means I’m only able to revise when I have a strong WiFi connection, when I would quite like to listen to podcasts outside my house, on the bus or on Holiday etc.
The layout of the whole app is completely confusing, as there are many glitches within the whole app. It would be great if you could tick or mark what podcasts you’ve already listened to, to keep track of what you’ve listened to and what you still need to revise. And a notification of tick to show you’ve completed the set assignments.
In addition to this, if you could enlarge the video to the size of your screen whilst watching a podcast it would make it a lot easier to see and concentrate on the content given.
God bless you GCSEPod for making revision so easy and interesting. I could just carry my phone around with me and listen to pods, out and about, in the shower, in the kitchen, before bed and while getting ready...
However, I did have a lot of problems with downloaded content which would've been extremely useful when going on holiday or in places with no WIFI. As well I this it became confusing when clicking on subjects or folders, only to find they are empty or missing content; especially in the Religious studies units. I would really appreciate for this issue to be fixed:)
Other than this I was very happy using this app to revise for my gcses and mock exams and hope other students find it as useful as I did🙂🤧
After recently finishing my exams (last one was yesterday) I can positively say that this app has helped loads! Pods provided have a clear audio that uses key information which is easy to understand that was needed for the GCSE's Pods are also kept short which I found helpful as I didn't get bored when listening.
I would definitely recommend this app to everyone who has GCSE's coming up in a year or so.
The Pods are very convenient and I feel like I understand the information given, not just remembered it.
