Poor use for iPads

I haven’t used the app on a mobile so can’t comment, but find the iPad quality poor. For the majority of the app you can only use it portrait style which isn’t useful for most iPad cases/stands. Also it doesn’t fit the screen in portrait view. Feels like a poor quality app for the content that it provides. Saying that, I haven’t had any actual problems with the app; the content is always available and accurate.

Overall it’s great, apart from display issues

It’s great for doing Knowledge Checks, lessons etc. on the go but the screen doesn’t fit the window (too large) and although you can zoom out, it still won’t snap to the window size and resets to default (way too large) every time you select a drop down menu or progress to the next question.
Functionally, it’s a great app though!

Buggy & doesn’t let me log-in!

Could be a very useful app, that could be really useful for students if it actually worked efficiently and correctly. The app on my iPhone refuses to log me in even when I have checked and double checked my credentials. Personally for a app to not even allow you to log in (as a bug) is pretty useless. Definitely should of been something that developers picked up on instantly. Shame...
