Get comfortable and switch to airplane mode bc App won’t run in the background;

I’m in the middle of a dive course and have to complete the online portion before moving on to the open water dives to get my cert. a friend told me to use the App. What he forgot to mention is that this app does not run in the background so if you answer a text, Check email or even get a phone call, you have to start your download over. Based on your connectivity, the initial download takes forever; its even more irritating when you only have 20MB to go and someone calls you. Now your back at square one. Most people learn to dive while on vacation so they are limited to hotel Wi-Fi or portable hotspots with very slow speeds. At least let this app run in the background so you can entertain yourself during the two hours waiting for a section to download.

Why all the negative reviews? This app is fantastic!

I have just completed my online PADI course using this app alongside the PADI Library. I used my iPad and was always connected to WiFi when using this app. I did not have any problems in-fact I found the videos extremely informative and helpful. Not one glitch the videos ran smoothly. I thoroughly recommend this app using your tablet not a smartphone if you are concerned about phone calls coming through.

Poorly organized

The content here is very linear. Outline, text, review, quiz, repeat for several chapters and take a test. Just like a book. Unfortunately, there is no predictable way of getting from one page to the next. A combination of scrolling, swiping right, but sometimes down guarantees that you will miss large chunks of the content.

This is not entirely bad, since they have managed to make a hobby look tedious through constant repetition. Another dumb approach to instruction: if you get a question wrong they explain the right answer while covering the wrong answer so you can’t check the exact nature of your mistake.
