  • New app won’t stay open

  • Very disappointing update

    By ASAZ12345
    Great Courses Plus took an app that functioned and replaced it with an app that crashes all the time. This is not acceptable. GC needs to invest more in quality control. And, yes, I deleted the app, rebooted my device and reloaded the app, even though this isn’t necessary with other apps. GC has to do better. If these problems are not corrected soon, I will be forced to cancel my subscription, which is a shame, since they do have excellent content.
  • First-Rate Content, No longer weighed down by a buggy app

    By TheAndy4569
    Revised Review - I love the redesign. I am also thrilled to finally have an option to download the audio. After a few years the excellent content doesn’t feel weighed down by a buggy app. There are still a few older courses I would still like to see added. Update: Since downloading the app I have experienced an issue with downloads disappearing twice. I hope this is resolved soon. There are still a few minor features I would still like to see added: 1) CarPlay app for listening to the audio courses while driving 2) Ability to mark courses “complete” - I’d like to have the ability to see a quick overview of the courses I’ve taken. 3) A “Download Lecture Series” button. As well as a few bugs: 1) Sync issues - When I pick up a series from another device it’s more likely than not to be bookmarked in the wrong place. 2) Downloading - I frequently have to start and restart downloads that hang up. Also, it seems like the process fails anytime the app is moved to the background. 3) While listening to the app, the backwards/forwards options displayed on the lock screen should be the same as the app(+/- 15 sec) instead of jumping to the previous/next lecture. Original Review Below: I love the Great Courses; the content offered is unrivaled and I have probably taken well over 50 courses. While the app has seen some improvements it could still use some refinements. It still takes way too much time to navigate to the next lecture in a series after returning to the app and I can’t trust the app to continue downloading episodes in the background when I leave it. Also, I frequently listen to the series while driving in areas with poor coverage so I would really like to have the ability to download an audio version of the lectures. Also, CarPlay would be a great addition. Separately, I haven’t seen many older series added to Plus in a while. I hope rights issues get resolved.
  • The New App is Terrible

    By Boru214
    Even with the many “bug” fixes needed after the new app was rolled out, and after having to delete and re-install the app multiple times, the user interface is terrible, the icons are too small, and it takes forever to download a single episode. Beyond disappointed. TGC needs to get their app together and make this disaster right with their customers.
  • Forced update deletes downloaded files (for offline viewing)

    By Ronan XV
    Here we go again. Another subscription app forces paying subscribers to use a faulty "update" that doesn't work and wastes our time. Newsflash: TGC- You're now in breach of your contract with every single one of your subscribers. Nice job. Hurry up and fix the app before someone gets frustrated enough to litigate. Going forward, if you're going to force an update, maybe roll something out that doesn't crash and completely ruin your paying users' experience. Just a thought. Thanks for taking my money every month and wasting my time. CM
  • Crashes immediately

    By JCinCA
    I have iPhone XS. This new version crashes immediately. 🤦🏻‍♀️ I then followed your advice to uninstall, reboot, reinstall. Still crashes immediately!!!!
  • Not stable at all

    By mainematt
    Recent update now Unusable. Crashes on opening in iOS. PLEASE FIX. Every 4th or 5th time it might say open for a bit but totally unusable as it is.
  • Fresh Update Worked for Me

    By ButchPhoto
    The newest update ( worked for me. My downloads were gone but all my courses were still available and that was the most important. The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is the update statement says you can now download the pdf files for each course in apps. However, on iPad I see no way to do that and no help function. Would appreciate clarity on the availability of this download function.
  • Bad app

    By Sander2574
    I’ve long enjoyed The Great Courses Plus using the app but with the new update haven’t succeeded in watching anything. Not a happy lifelong learner. UPDATE: still love Great Courses but though I can now watch videos, the app is not any better than it was before the update. Have to navigate around to find the course I’m doing, and more navigation to find the next lecture.
  • Lost 2 weeks of my subscription

    By Aprym
