Best Study Material for Cloud Certification
The title says it all for me. The videos are great, links to relevant forum/online content, they cover the three big public providers in-depth, and provide weekly updates on what the big cloud players are doing in the market. Content is updated regularly to adjust for certification exams and new services coming online. The annual cost is MORE than worth it to keep your cloud knowledge current and relevant.
The only recommendation I could provide to improve the service is to work on the mobile app a little more. I’ve had it not function as expected at times; such as deleting my downloaded videos with no notification, requiring network logins while I’m offline, and not updating the website with my progression through course content. I have seen improvements over the last year and is kore stable than originally, so the five star stands as long as they are working to improve service delivery.

HI @Brianjacobpage! Thank you for the time to give your detailed feedback. We are happy to hear you are enjoying the content. We agree on improving the mobile app. In fact, we have a team of developers solely working on improving the mobile app experience! It's a big push for us right now and appreciate you sticking with us while we improve. We try to put out updates constantly so keep an eye out for those updates. As far as needing to login while offline, usually this means the cache was cleared by either manually doing it, logging out, or force closing the app. Be sure to be logged in prior to going offline and it should work! If it doesn't please send us feedback in your app settings and we can help troubleshoot with you. Happy learning! - Kristal, Support Manager
The app is much better.
Update 1: I just got back into studying for another AWS Certification - the Advanced Networking Cert. as always the content is great.
The app experience is much better, it hasn’t crashed and most of my earlier complaints have been addressed. It supports split screen at least on the iPad. I don’t remember if it supports PIP.
Upgrading to 4 stars. I’m keeping the original text just because I am impressed with how much better it is in less than a year. Great job!
But still no search :(
This review is only concerning the app - not the content. If I could give this app negative stars I would.
ACloudGuru’s content is top notch. I first discovered it on Udemy. But the app is probably the worse video content app a I’ve ever used.
- you can’t search for videos on the app
- if you exit the video on the iPhone and go back to anywhere else in the app it freezes constantly.
- No picture in picture on the iPad
- when it automatically goes from one lecture to the next and you’ve already viewed the lecture. It starts at the end of the next video. Every other tutorial video app starts at the beginning.
I’m going to cancel my subscription after having it for one month. The app experience makes it unusable.
That being said, I have bought all of A Cloud Guru’s associate videos from Udemy. Udemy has a much better app as does PluralSight.

Hi @Scarface_74, thank you for the updated review! We just released the search feature on 2.7.0, so I'd love to troubleshoot that with you so you can have access. Can you please email us at email@example.com so we can ensure you have that feature? - Kristal, Support Manager
Great content & Excellent UI/UX
First, I will review A Cloud Guru as an educational service. I am a big fan of a cloud guru to start with. The content is top-notch, well presented, and constantly updated. Content creators obviously put tons of resources into keeping the courses current which is very important for a sector like cloud computing, with its rapidly emerging services and changes up features/functionality.
As for the app, it has a very robust feature set with a modern intuitive and predictable UI. Content is available to download for offline use which is a big plus. My only criticism is the inability to search and sign up for new courses directly in the app. You have to do that on the website. I assume this is an Apple-imposed restriction due to policies regarding access to subscription based content purchased outside of the App Store or in-app transactions.

Hi @Futurezero thank you for the detailed feedback! We do work extremely hard to keep content fun and relevant. The other great news is that being able to browse and start a course from the app is coming very soon! Be on the lookout for app updates and let us know what you think. Happy learning! - Kristal, Support Manager
