App Reviews

  • Not One Viewing

    1
    By Steve Watkins
    I cannot view a single class on any course. Not through my television, IPad, or HP Laptop. Contacted Customer Service and their answer was "It should work"...... Duh! Of course it SHOULD work ergo my comment that it doesn't! There appear to be some interesting courses but I'll never know because Heaven forbid I could actually view one. Typical company in today's unethical and untrustworthy world. Don't waste your time.....
  • Good content, horrible app

    By JSBisViewtiful
    App is sluggish and doesn't pick up button presses half the time. Randomly signs me out and in the process erases all the downloaded episodes I've taken the time to download for mobile use... Episodes that took forever to download and require the app to be open. Really too bad.
  • List all downloads

    Latest update eliminated all downloads which went to my history folder. I can't view history folder without the internet. It was five stars until now.
  • What Happened to 2x Speed???

    1
    By Easy Rhino
    The new update automatically downloaded and installed to my device, and it doesn't have 2x speed anymore! I was cruising thru 3-4 lectures on my commute, now I can barely stand to get thru 1. PLEASE BRING THE SPEED ADJUSTMENT BACK!! My iPad downloads did not disappear but the video quality went down for some reason. Have to re-download in higher quality. Too bad the update automatically installed!
  • update deleted all my course downloads

  • What the Heck

    By calenair
    Great service screwed by the new update. Please reinstate the ability to watch at double speed - 30 minutes per lecture makes TGCP almost unusable for me. Also, the new update deleted all of (the significant number of) downloads I had, so now I have to re-do all of that. Love The Great Courses, but this update just made my afternoon more difficult.
  • Finally - Audio Functionality!

    5
    By Elac Zanzibar
    Been a subscriber for a while, and so excited that they updated their app to include the ability listen to courses and lectures without the video showing and without disruption. And how it works is pretty intuitive and cool - one swipe and you can switch to audio mode and back seamlessly. Can finally listen in my car or when I'm running.
  • serious bugs

    2
    By Iconicus
    The content is great.....if you can get to it. Bugs: 1. The app looses your place continually. 2. If you happen to be in a bad cell area and it can't connect, you can't play the downloded videos 3. Can't download audio only. It's a safety issue. If I have to download and play the video, I'm going to watch the video.....while I'm driving! I can't help it. 4. The "button" to down load videos is about one pixel big. If you miss it, you start to play the lesson and loose your place.
  • Audio Option Would Make This 5stars

    1
    By SmittyWit
    I swear if there was an audio only option where I can just stream and listen with my phone in my pocket, I'd gladly consider this review a five star one and pay religiously. With that simple feature this would be my favorite app.
  • Audio-only with CarPlay is really wanted

    2
    By kittycat262728
    Like others I too really want there to be a CarPlay compatible audio only option. I drive an hour each way to commute to work and I would like to be able to listen to these in the car. I'd be way more likely to renew my trial if this were added.
