I thought you had to pay to subscribe but they are free! It’s really great. Thank you Apple for this. It’s really great and I can access my courses from the homepage of my app. 🎁
Just Update The App it Has Been months.
This SHOULD BE an embarrassment to Apple to have such out of date material and call it their University. BUT, I don’t have all the facts (nor do probably 98% of the reviewers here). Just like grocery stores have us scanning and bagging our own groceries now, Apple is probably riding the wave of letting the Users do all the work for free, then featuring them in an “Apple Story”. Heart warming. Embracing Underserved Left-Handed Coders! Empowering users! (Code for: Free labor that doesn’t take sick days or need health insurance.) •• Sometimes departments in mega-corporations are purposefully sparsely funded to barely maintain content; they can’t even consider updating it. •• The goal: let the department wither away while using the mounting negative reviews as proof the department is not needed. ••> I personally know a Chief Scientist with more than 35 years at a certain GIGANTI-NORMOUS, industry leading and industry-standard software company (cool graphics, photography stuff). ••> Chief Scientist above told me that tactic was tried on him by new exec’s... ••> Then they found out he worked with the FOUNDERS in the early “garage days” of said software company and the founders knew him by name. ••> New exec’s were left trying to find jobs in an industry dominated by this company and branded on their foreheads with the reputations of p*ss*ng-off the FOUNDERS of said GIGANTI-NORMOUS software company. ••> Apple can’t be THAT CLUELESS about the state of content in their “University”.
I have not tried it out yet, hope it good. ✌️
I can’t find up to date books about engines any where I did find a book about internal combustion but it was priced 100$ and written in 2015
It good if it’s free
It’s okay at best. The UI is so dated, and it is not very well organized. The app clearly hasn’t been touched in so long. Marking up a document in the app needs to be able to actually work. And please...change the name. Apple, please update this app! Give it an overhaul!
I wish it would be as big as Tiktok. But who wants to watch Yale lectures, right? give me a ducking pancake cereal!!!
I live in Iraq and free education is a great idea looking at the financial situation here and from the reviews I have read this is the best education app on iOS. The problem with me is that the free courses do not appear the page just stays blank when I enter and the search function also stays blank and it is not because of the internet because I tested my speed and it was at 1.5 mb/s a fix would be very useful
