Excellent content. App not as full-featured as website

I enjoy in both the portrait and landscape full screen mode on my iPad. However, videos with the score showing below on the website seem to be kissing the score on the app version. I like that feature in the web based versions of lessons on peaces

Great content, bad app

I thought other reviews were exaggerating the quality of the app. It’s…shocking. I consistently lose video when going from Portrait to Landscape on the iPhone. I have to quit the app to see anything….only for it to blank out again.

The iPad app is an iPhone compatibility app. It’s terrible.

Both of these issues are fairly foundational and wouldn’t take a competent developer to resolve. So begs the question…how is this possible? The content pages seem okay, perhaps some quick and dirty framework is used like ReactNative, and the developer doesn’t understand the foundational components.

Anyway, the app is definitely souring my ability to enjoy the amazing lessons, and content. It’s truly a weird dichotomy to witness such polished talent coming through an unpolished app. I really want to support this app and all of the amazing artists involved.

Please fix!

Works fine

The most recent release now has the same functionality as the website. Previously, you could only watch videos, but now you can access the community forums through the app. I have not encountered any problems with the latest update. I am using the app on my iPad Pro.
