  • Great content, but app needs some basic features.

    By R@
    I’ve had this app on all my devices for almost a year now. I love learning new things, and I really like not having to worry about exams or homework. I first saw a lecture by the Great Courses on Netflix. The lectures where by Niel DeGrass Tyson, one of my favorite professors. The format caught my attention, and I decided to look up the company. I found this app and immediately downloaded it. The app on mobile devices is pretty good, but just needs a bit more cosmetic touches because it looks a bit old. On the other hand the Apple TV app looks aesthetically pleasing but lacks features. I often turn on a lecture after a long day to sit down and relax, and more often then not I end up falling asleep. When I wake up I want to resume the lecture, but the player does not have the ability to scrub through and resume where I left off, or at least where I remember leaving off. Then when it gets to a lecture that was playing when I woke up, it doesn’t let me restart the lecture from the beginning. It will always start from the point I stopped the lecture last time. No matter what I do. I have to completely finish watching it in order to restart a specific lecture. The lack of this feature is what makes this app so frustrating. Sometimes I just want to go back and listen to a specific part of a lecture, but without the ability to scrub through a video and find the spot you want to see it makes this app seem very unplanned. Over all I gave it a four out of five because of content. If it was based on the Apple TV app and it’s features this app would only be a one out of five, maybe two.
  • great content, buggy app

    By SayXyzzy
    I bought this subscription to listen to courses in the car while commuting. Unfortunately, it requires me to re-sign in periodically and does not reliably keep track of my place in a lecture. Since I can’t really fiddle with my phone while driving, I have cancelled and gone back to listening to great courses in the audible app. Audible actually works and if I listen to two courses a month, the price is about the same.
  • Needs a lot of improvement

    By Raygeis
    I have been an avid Great Courses user and fan for a number of years. The user interface for the base Great Courses material is really good. Unfortunately the same can’t be said about this app for Great Courses Plus. I like to watch Courses in sequence but this app makes it very difficult (and frustrating) to do. There is a history which is better than nothing, but there is no easy way to immediately start watching the next lecture in the series (unlike there is in the base Great Course material). The menu is not much help either. The rating is just for the app, not the Great Courses Plus. I trust with time, this app will be greatly improved because the material is outstanding
  • The Story of Human Language

    By Chiefoware
    This subject was chosen by my 16 year old granddaughter as a focus for our hour long drive to school each day. She is now into her fourth day of listening and absorbing the information. I am fascinated by what I hear but can not focus on the visual presentation aspect of the lectures because I am driving. The evolution of language, on the other hand is a great contrast to ideas planted in my brain under the conceptualization of a Divine act in the dispersal of the human population and the confounding of languages. I will need to revisit this subject when I have had my fill of other evolutionary content relative to life producing chemicals of Mother Earth. This is a fantastic link to knowledge and I am re-education myself at a very late point in life; 70 years and growing!
  • Love the content; app needs tweaking.

    By SO Park
    I love The Great Courses Plus! However, the app is buggy and needs to include features like: - the ability to download audio only; - a sleep timer for downloaded content; - the ability to turn your screen of as the content continues to play (this is available while streaming audio, but if you download content—which, only video is available for download—there is not the option to turn your screen off and continue to listen to content. Some of the problems that I have experienced with the app are: - app lags or appears to freeze at times; - at times I have had a dialogue box appear advising me that the content I am attempting to access is not (or may not) be available in my country (U.S.). I hope that the app continues to improve because I truly love The Great Courses Plus!
  • Lifelong learning anytime anywhere

    By QuasiNerd
    I have been a fan of the great courses for years. I have a small collection of their DVDs and with life’s interruptions I must admit that although I fully intended to, I get busy or something comes up and I lose my place on the DVD and never finish the class. With The Great Courses Plus my place is saved and I can easily pick up where I left off. Even if I haven’t been studying for a week or more. It’s also a breeze to use my iPhone or Roku to scan through previous lessons in order to get to my favorite parts. I am not a fan of monthly payments but the content is excellent and the price is much less than traditional courses. In conclusion the Great Courses offers a wide variety of interesting classes taught by passionate professors, very well produced, and does well to capture your attention. All at a fair price. I will be recommending this to family and friends.
  • Wish the world would watch more of these

    By tameyers
    You could educate you children with these.
  • Wonderful

    By Setclock
    At near $200 after the tax is added this is still incredibly one of the best deals in the App Store. You are granted access to semesters of college-level courses which can aid you in countless ways and pursuits. Whether used as a refresher or supplemental learning or as a primer to a field course you are about to take, I find it far more useful than notes and note-taking. It’s much like having a rewind button during a live course so that you can absorb and review at your pace. I don’t write reviews often but am very glad to do so for this app/course.
  • Wonderful.

    By Jesse_A-0
    I love TGCP. Fascinating and fun topics — there’s something for everyone. In addition the lectures are informative without being overbearing. Most of the lectures range from 20-30 minutes making them very digestible.
  • Brain power
