Apple no longer gives refunds on any APP purchases. BE AWARE — SPREAD THE WORD!
I wish I could give no stars! The app won’t even open it just crashes!
I can’t write a review for a course. I can’t actually download the course content. I’ve tried downloading every individual item manually and using the “auto download” options to no avail
Apple is severely limiting this app's potential by trying to keep it so exclusive. Not only are they refusing to allow it to work in conjunction with other platforms, but you cant even access it from other Apple devices such as your laptop or desktop computer. One would think that an intelligent decision would be to design an educational app around the idea that learning is a lifetime persuit and to design it in a way that allows it to adapt to the changing world. Wake up, Apple. Inclusivity is the new exclusivity.
I learned how to program from a course on here! All the open content on this rich platform allows everyone to participate in learning and growth, at their own pace and ability level. Lots of respect for iTunes U!
One of the cooler but low-key things Apple has done. My daughter, in high school, learned HTML/CSS from the Yale CS course. It inspired her to create her own hand-rolled blog. We love you iTunes U!
I have for the past year and a half tried to use the app to give myself a refresher but the app needs to be updated. So when I go to update the app it says I have to buy the app again. I go to the App Store to download and it actually like it is going to download but it never does. The app came preloaded on my phone.
I feel as if Apple should make this able to go onto a MacBook, it would definitely help to have it on a bigger screen so I could take notes better! Just a thought.
