Reviews

Great Content, Buggy Apps

2
Too many bugs and UI limits to warrant the subscription fee IMO. Some of many bugs: Captions don't work on iOS or iPad. After playing downloaded content offline, the app is unresponsive. Annoyances: Does not support remote skip back (commonly a triple click). Unable to play PIP on iPad. AirPlay does not respect alternate playback speeds. Browsing in general is slow because of loading too much media reloading.

Love the content organization is a big flaw

4
I love the content, everything is interesting to me. That’s though is the problem. The add to watchlist is only really useful if you don’t add everything cool to it and quickly becomes overwhelming. I don’t remove things I have watched because I am likely to loose them if I ever want to review. I think a great improvement would be to add an organization feature. Maybe for easiest use, multiple customizable ones. At the very least have them sorted by the categories they are under.

Separating app, service, and name

2
The app is barely ready for regular use as of 9/22. There are some basic features that other streaming services have, such as downloading episodes in the background while on wifi or queueing episodes to download, that are missing. Another weird bug is that it won’t download more than a few episodes at a time because, it seems after so much traffic, it thinks it is on cellular data. The service is great. A little pricey, causing me to rethink my subscription every month, but still great. The name “Wondrium” is terrible. I have nothing to add to that.

Wondrium no longer has captions, useless for deaf/HOH/etc.

1
If you are deaf, hard of hearing, or have auditory processing difficulties that need accessibility accommodation for captioning, you will not find this extremely basic, frequently used accessibility tool in Wondrium anymore. I let my membership lapse over the summer, and when they jacked up the prices they also removed their captions, apparently. Probably because they’re more concerned with potential copyright infringement more than they are concerned with diverse populations being able to access their content. Abhorrent.

Overall decent app.

4
This review is strictly about the app and not the content at all. Firstly, I very much appreciate that an app for Wondrium even exists. And secondly, it is a decent app. But finally: it could be better. And my better I’m only going to refer to things that at least to the end user are probably obvious. For starters, the app is not persistent enough, if I don’t lock my phone with it on my screen it often times will not restart when I try to resume from my AirPods. Second, it’d be so great to be able and download an entire series in one fell swoop and not have to tap download to every single episode, which can sometimes be up to 50 times! That’s it, just these three things would make many users very happy I’m sure of it!

Stupidest feature ever

1
The app allows you to download content to view offline. The same app WON’T OPEN when you’re offline.

Phenomenal

5
This is an incredible service provided to those who are interested in further advancing in their quest for knowledge. It would be wonderful if we could use this app in a multitasking format on Apple products, such as Picture in Picture viewing, or being able to minimize the lecture video and use other apps.

I’ve been using Great Courses for years on my car audio. Now I take advantage of the wonderful new courses on Wondrium at IPad. Great new courses like the tour of Ancient Egypt, Practical Geology and many more are engaging. Additional documentaries and short series make this well worth the price of subscription. A superior learning tool.

iPad App is Really Bad

1
Most buttons on the iPad version of the app doesn’t work. Clicking genres pulls up an empty page where nothing loads. Clicking on my recently watches doesn’t do anything. Cool company, really bad iPad app

App is terrible

1
I honestly cannot review the content, the identity management of the app and website are so awful. Password reset emails take forever and are expired by the time they arrive. I’m imminently going to unsubscribe before the trial is over.
