ScreenCastsOnline video tutorials are a great way to learn more about getting the most out of your Apple devices.
This release adds new functionality to the SCO Members app and fixes a few bugs:
Spotlight Searching: To search for a tutorial in the SCO Members app, swipe down from the middle of the iPad or iPhone home screen to access the standard iOS Spotlight search panel. Selecting a result in the Spotlight search now takes you directly to that tutorial’s show page inside the app.
Now Playing support in Control Center: You can now stream a tutorial’s audio to your HomePod or other AirPlay speakers via the audio control in the Control Center
Custom URLs: We now support custom URLs which will take you directly to a tutorial’s details inside the app. We will be using these in future newsletters to allow you to access the tutorial page in the app from the newsletter with a single tap.
Misc bug fixes including fixed a layout issue with the video player’s top bar position.
Ratings and Reviews
A VERY welcome design refresh to the learning experience!
Very nicely done on the new application. The ability to adjust the playback speed on the picture in picture features are tremendously helpful! Also, I will not miss the frustration of the magazine app when rotating my iPad between portrait and landscape during the middle of a video only to have it stop and reset. Hallelujah! Congrats on the new and improved product.
Below is my original review. However I have added the fifth star I promised I'd give if variable playback speeds were added. Thank you so much. This will
make viewing so much more enjoyable and efficient!!
Original review: Screencasts online is a wonderful site to learn about macOS,iOS, productivity, and many other tech related and Apple-centric topics. So glad to see an iOS app for even easier access to the content on our iphones and ipads. I know this is just version 1.0 but I am reserving my 5th star for variable playback speed. I would like to be able to playback the videos at 1.25x,1.5x,1.75x,and 2.0x. A bonus would be gestures to allow skipping forward and backwards with a swipe. Please check out the "SpeedUpTv" app for iphone and ipad as a model for gesture and variable playback support. thanks!!
Very Professionally Done
I have had a subscription to SCO for about 5-6 years now and it just keeps getting better with every year. The way the content is explained and shown is just first class all the way. These are no you tube videos, these are professionally made videos on all kinds of topics. I learn something every time I watch one. I even think I'll skip one because I use the app and know what I'm doing, but I watch it anyway and sure enough I end up saying "I didn't know that".
It's well worth the money to subscribe because of content, professional quality, and in-depth reviews of the content being covered. Don and all of his crew really do know what they are doing. Highly recommend subscribing.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
