  • Great content-absolutely horrible app

    Great Courses is awesome. I own so many of their books on audible. The app needs to be completely rebuilt from the ground up though. Too many problems to list. Can’t navigate easily or continue listening if you leave the play screen. The app developers need to take plenty of design cues from Amazons Audible app. Great Courses, I want to return and be a lifelong customer again. Your content is amazing. But I’m not dealing with the terrible app until it’s better or redone.
  • Great Courses, Broken App

    As others have noted, the audio stops playing when you sleep your device, making it unusable in the gym. And the audio does not respond to the Play button on my bluetooth headphone. --- Later: Having tried to use the app in real life, I must conclude that the usually good people at The Great Courses did not do so before releasing it. I commend the book _Testing Computer Software_, by Cem Kaner et al., to their attention. As others have noted, when the app finishes one lecture and begins another, it doesn't do so from the beginning. And if you actually use your iPhone for other things during the day, and return to the app the next day, you’re not returned to the course you were listening to, but to the advertisement screen. The app is barely tolerable for extended sampling of a course, but for actually finishing it, I think I will return to my usual habit of buying the lectures from the iTunes store and listening to them with Audible’s admirable app. --- Even later (2.5): I now can’t use this in the gym at all; video downloads won’t play in the background, audio downloads are forbidden (and according to another reviewer wouldn’t work anyway); streaming doesn’t work even with an excellent LTE connexion.

    Finding this app and listening to different courses has been beyond wonderful. I might be getting older but one should never loose the joy in learning new things and listening to different ideas.
  • Useless (Must Be Subscribed error)

    This app wouldn't allow me access to anything even after subscribing. I was able to watch some videos and then suddenly i wasn’t. Tried restoring purchase - nothing. Tried deleting and re-downloading, nothing. What’s the point if the interface is so bugged that it can’t even be used?
  • Amazing

  • Epitome of cluelessness

    How do you take the world’s brightest minds, some of the best courses and screw it up? By refusing to fire old farts who have no idea what technology is. This app is a disaster. Does not play in the background. Does not download in the background. Does not preload while watching a course. Does not use best practices and clogs up iCloud backups. Does not play courses when flying (hangs up after a couple hours of video on 2x) Does not play courses when internet is interrupted, when switching to the next video They seem to be more concerned about preventing piracy to the point where the only way to use great courses plus as intended and advertised is to pirate the video and watch it using another app. Furthermore, these morons don’t understand that they are a technology company with great content. Not the other way around. There is no way to share great insights with friends, comment and engage with other viewers on videos or create bookmarks/notes. They ripping off their investors, destroying their brand and failing their talent. Clueless morons, probably think that outsourcing their core competency is the right business decision
  • Crashing. Crashing. Crashing.

    I love The Great Courses and Plus is an awesome deal, but I am fed up with having to enter my email address and password every time. It isn't saved to my keychain, which would make things much easier, and remembering me on my own device would be wonderful. Its a shame the developer hasn't implemented those options. I guess I'll have to be reminded how annoyed I get putting in my full email address and password every time I use the app, even if I pause a lecture for a few minutes.
  • New update now has caused audio version to not play.

    Seems like one after another something is always going wrong for me with this app. Plz fix. Seriously considering canceling my membership none of this is worth the hassle it takes just to listen to a single lecture let alone try to complete a full course.
  • Make app mobile phone friendly please...

    I’m a huge connoisseur of The Great Course - owning 254. But the app has a few glaring issues on the iphone. The lectures do not maximize the available screen size, leaving much wasted space with no option to enlarge or zoom in like other online courses. Additionally, the course guidebooks do not allow a horizontal, enlarged view or option to increase text size, making it necessary for me to use an iPad or computer to read the text. This is most frustrating and inconvenient. Lastly, it would really be nice to have a bookmarking feature so I don’t scroll through each time I want to continue where I left off. Thank you.
