Why being discontinued It’s a good app oh well it will happen every app eventually
Please update this app
There are WAY too many apps, games, and learning platforms- both free and paid - and we are all getting sick and tired of downloading so app after app after app and having multiple applications to do what we want to do. People are moving towards simplicity, convenience, minimalism. Yes, tech & apps - it was all the rage for a while - but it has had its day. We are realizing the less is more. To be able to utilize my phone to complete day to day activities is great - being able to access all I need or want from a single platform (Apple) - priceless!
This app has done wonders for me and my family.
I’ve been using ITU for many years and enjoyed it’s genuine classroom presentation by many college’s and universities. To actually see the professor lecture and the visual media presentation is without equal. Podcast can’t do this and it is actually a step back in time to radio. Is Apple a leading tech company or are they misleading us into thinking that Podcast is a step forward? To discontinue ITU was poor judgment by Apple. Bring it back by another name compatible with Mac and iOS.
This needs to stay, and become part of everyone’s Monday thru Friday. Education needs reformation, and this app is a step in the right direction.
I would love to use this app but Apple decided to take it off market at the end of 2021.
It’s an essential tool these days. Please keep and promote this app.
I like this app.
