A portable best of NBIC

I have enjoyed this app. It’s well-thought out and well-planned. I love having the Book Bites, and I enjoy the podcasts. It helps me learn while walking and is fun. Best of all, when other #NBIC members recommend podcasts, they’re all easily accessible. I like having access to runners up as well as finalists. Thanks, #NBIC team.

Won’t keep me logged in

I want to love this, I really do. But each time I go to relaunch the app and access an ecourse, it says I must be a member (which I am) and to login in. But the login options gray out until I delete the app and reinstall it. Sigh.
