What's New in Version 2.7
Bug fixes & stability updates
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.
Please add in a full screen mode
The white surrounding bars and overall messiness of the app when playing podcasts is my biggest complaint. This alone makes podcasts seem tedious due to the distracting status bar and time bar. If you added in a full screen mode option this would all be solved and make the app far more pleasant to use. Other than that it's great.
