Ratings and Reviews
Been looking for apps which I can use to keep me busy and not think of switching back to facebook... and this is the app I’ve been looking for!
Old, and clunky
When will this app get a UI refresh or even some improvements like multitasking support? Terrible
This is a GREAT APP! It supplements traditional classroom learning through innovative approaches, such as those expressed in videos, audiobooks and other forms of media (readily available for download in the iTunes U store).
Indeed, this is app is very helpful and efficient for students, learners, readers, and practically to anyone who just wants to take in knowledge in an organized, modern and personal way. :) Way to go, Apple...:) I guess this is the start of the so-called 'education revolution'.
