This app is great. It lets you take free courses from the comfort of your own home at your own pace. It’s great, but my daughter wants to learn Greek. Her and I looked on this app, and couldn’t find anything she could understand. It really needs more courses for kids.
It’s really good 😊
Oh it’s probably just the years, Time flies.
For who? Apple self interest. So done with general statements and no details. Once downloaded set the trap and no going back. We demand significant details! Stop on the App Store LOCKING OUT previous downloads updates and previous versions of APPS AND OSs! My god cannot even go back and download previous versions such Mac OS El Capitan without jumping through hoops and High Sierra because there is no complete download available anywhere. Because Apple locked out next versions of MacOS on certain Macs by intentional obsolescence, iOS compatibility with MacOS is locked in at iOS 12. If you missed 12.5 before 13 you are screwed. If you are finally able to upgrade to iOS 13 you are screwed. Must update to latest iOS 14.
It’s really weird so I guess I’ll just delete it.
Apple, please consider adding a tool that would let me increase the speed of the video like youtube. I am very grateful for the thought and access to free education but for someone's who's gotten sued to 2x the speed for educational videos, this feels laborious experience. This is the only complaint I have toward the app
Never used the app, but the idea seems kinda whack
