Customer Reviews

Best school ever! (5 stars)
No dress code, bathroom breaks whenever, phone calls and texting are allowed. Only complaint is that my classmate meows sometimes, but that's not really a big deal.

Great Concept- Poorly Executed (2 stars)
I love the concept of iTunes U, but Apple needs to tend to it's long neglected garden of learning.

1- The navigation and organization are horrible unless you have endless hours to wander through the kludged interface. The app needs a powerful filter and search function so that someone can quickly find what they are looking for.
2- Why no companion app on the Macintosh App Store? I would greatly prefer using learning materials on

Exceptional (5 stars)
It surprises me that there isn't more reviews of this application. Actually, it frustrates me to think that more people with iOS devices aren't more interested in higher education when it's so elegantly delivered (not to mention free) directly to one's phone. Amazing stuff.
