Ratings and Reviews
The app does the basics of what you want, but could use an update and potentially some new features. I mostly use the app to view tutorial videos on my iPad. One missing feature is that the app library doesn’t support landscape, so I have to navigate with it turned sideways, before watching in landscape. I think adding Discover and a wishlist option would be helpful, even if you couldn’t buy in the app itself, so you can find new stuff even if you aren’t at your computer (or don’t want to use your mobile browser). One actual issue I've seen is videos starting for a couple seconds, then restarting, as if it was preloading, then resetting when it finished the preload. Not a terrible app, but the fact it hasn’t been updated in years is really starting to show.
Add more features
It's great that you can keep track of your purchases in one library and all. However what about your own products for sale? Or even just your profile? Settings? Etc?
I'd like to at least be able to view my products/profile or be able to make simple edits to my products from my phone. What's the use in having a phone app if it doesn't make the features of the desktop website simpler/easier? It just has one function: to hold your purchases.
And for one other feature of the website, we need to download a separate app?? One app for purchases. One app for dashboard. Really? Waste of space. You need to optimize ONE app to at least the basic functions of the website. Apps are supposed to make it easier to access, simpler to use, and better for on-the-go. But these two apps are simply unnecessary. Everyone uses the desktop website only because these apps make no sense.
Pretty good app
I'm using this app to listen to a review course for the physician assistant boards. It's pretty easy to use and nice that you don't need memory to save programs. My only complaint is that there needs to be a button to let you go back or forward 15 or 30 seconds... It's really hard to get to the exact time spot you want to be at, which is frustrating if you just want to listen to one small part again. If you try to just rewind a little you can't get it where you want it!
