Content is fine but the format is rubbish- it doesn’t remember where you are, it doesn’t seem to register if you click on the ‘continue’ button and it doesn’t work offline even if you download it. It stops if you move the phone to change screen rotation or move away from a video. Not a user friendly app. I only stuck with it as I’d paid for the course as part of my scuba course otherwise I’d have given up right at the beginning.

Does the job!

Not sure what all the fuss is about with these negative’s basically an iBooks-like app that allows you to download the PADI Training Manuals (and videos) before you get to your dive centre.

I downloaded the manual (videos were a bit large space wise) whilst on holiday, read through whilst completing the quizzes at the end of each section and then took the final exam at the end. All I had to do was type in my PADI account details to upload my results! After finishing my dives at the centre I had to do a quick review test of 25 multiple choice questions (nothing I hadn’t seen before) and they signed off on my licence!

Very handy if you don’t want to carry around a chunky textbook, fill out multiple choice questions by hand or have to sit the exam at your dive centre!

Works for the intended purpose

As per other comments - app does what it is meant to do and download the digital book and video files for offline studying; for those who claim this doesn’t work its most likely because you have purchased the “online” version of PADI eLearning rather than “touch” version - very simple mistake as I did so myself!

Three stars however as it doesn’t support downloading in the background so the app has to stay open and if you do change to another app or close it etc it will have to restart the download - make sure you’re charged and speedy internet connection will help!
