Works fine


I was a little worried laying down my money for the touch version of the open water course after reading the reviews here, but actually everything works fine. Log in (after signing up / purchasing on the web from my laptop), download course, go through it, take knowledge assessments and quizzes, all smooth and nicely done.

Poorly organized

F r e d

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.

Great idea but frustrating bugs and log in issues


I have my wife and 2 children using Touch to do the certification course work. The material is good and presented pretty well but we have had continuous trouble with the logins (very confusing no often rejected) and getting the app to submit the tests. PADI needs to do some real work on this to get it to work properly (including getting off flash - thank you Steve Jobs ghost - so it can all work properly on an ipad). For $179 I expect it to work flawlessly.
