  • A world of learning on demand

  • It’s a scam

    By swzart
    It’s a scam.
  • Great content; bad app

    By East Coker
    This app is frustrating. I cannot get from one lecture to the one preceding it. I called the Great Courses office, and somehow we got it so that it would start working again. This involves having to delete the app and reinstall it. But now the same problem is happening again. There is some kind of homepage for each course that stops appearing once I start listening or watching a course. It will not reappear no matter what button I push. I like to move around the lectures and not just hear them straight through, but that is impossible with this app currently.
  • Horrible App!

    By Origami99
    I wish I could give this app negative stars for all of my time that it has wasted. The app is nothing short of terrible. Crashes or stalls just about every time I try to use it. Even when just browsing the content available. For example, it’s impossible just to go back and forth between the program listings and the page describing a given title. Don’t bother downloading this, it’s worthless.
  • Terrible app

    By Hotrodsv
    The app for my iPad is almost useless. Very slow and does not sync with my other devices. Even when I use my browser it still does not work well. The browser version does not show close captions. Too bad since the contents of the lessons are reall quite excellent.
  • Initial Feedback

    By Dr Hardball
    I have recently joined Great Classes Plus. I have found the lectures to be both informative and highly interesting.
  • Buggy, slow, poorly designed app

    By auditory reader
    This is the worst app on my phone, and that includes a super beta app for my friend’s startup where no one really knows iOS development. The Great Courses needs to hire an actual designer and some developers who can do iOS because there is so much low-hanging fruit. First off, you have to click through like 3 screens to get where you want, and it’s super easy to click the wrong thing, which wouldn’t be a problem except that it can take like 10 seconds to load up each screen. In many cases, the best way to navigate through the app is actually to force-close it and reopen to get to the home page. Add to this the video skip and sync issues and the fact that it talks 10 seconds to switch between video and audio, and 10 seconds to load up the next lecture (if it loads up at all) As a feature request, I would also like to be able to navigate through the other while playing a lecture. It would also be nice if it actually tracked and marked which lectures you’ve watched. Really, my advice to the design team would be to emulate the Podcasts app. That app has it basically right. Given these issues, I’m tempted to drop my subscription despite the great content. Audiobooks from the library are free, and I don’t have to deal with any bugged out apps.
  • Great content, not so great (but decent) app

    By mikechase3
    The content is tremendous. I’m able to start with nothing and come out of a class with the knowledge of how to write a screenplay, understand how law works, or communicate more effectively. What this app cant do is give you practice; however, the content and videos itself are well worth the $20/month if you have the time to view them and practice on your own. Unfortunately, this app needs some work. There’s lots of bugs and small annoyances. Sometimes I have to quit and reopen the app.
  • Excellent way of learning

    I was a little bit reluctant to give The Great Courses a shot but was pleasantly surprised at how thorough and informative all the topics are. I’ve read many books on CBT and the understanding of the topic that I now have from this course is better than ever. I would recommend The Great Courses to everyone!
  • Phenomenal resource for knowledge & personal growth

    By SuperJStone
    Their selections of teachers is amazing! Their vast library of information is second to none! I wish they'd add a couple more features to the app: 1. The ability to control the speed when casting it to the TV (chrome stick). 2. They'd make an app for the Fire Stick or Chrome Stick.
