  • 5 star content. 1 star app

    By toad the hospitalist
    the great courses are truly amazing and highly recommended. but the app store is where we review apps not content: this app is barely functional. downloads stop all the time. app freezes. videos take forever to buffer. you guys need to get with the times. you offer amazing content which is clearly popular. if you don’t put a little effort into your apps, then some other company will eclipse you. we live in a world of smart phones and mobile apps. vhs and even dvds are outdated now. if you fail to deliver your product in the medium of our time, it could be your demise. otherwise your stuff is absolutely amazing
  • Excellent content. Poorly designed app.

    By Mts0987654
    The content in the app is fantastic and worth the subscription price. It even makes the app’s design flaws tolerable. But the flaws are obvious and increasingly annoying. This app is not designed with usability in mind. The home screen has 22 categories. They are mostly categories like “Great How-tos” or “Employee Favorites”. Why on earth is “In My Watchlist” not one of those? Why would they make it harder to watch the next lecture in a course I’m in the middle of than to start some randomly suggested new course? Why bury courses I’ve already said I’m interested in behind three clicks of navigation? They recently added “Continue Watching” to the home screen, but it’s comically badly implemented. Say you are half way through a lecture. It will be on the Continue Watching list. OK, great. You then click it and finish the lecture. After it’s done, you return to the home screen. What would you expect that course’s “continue” to be now? The next lecture, right? Well, no, it’s still the lecture you just watched, half way through. I guess they think if a lecture is good, it’s good enough to be watched again. And in this day and age, why don’t they support profiles? Everybody in my family enjoys the courses, but we don’t have the same interests. My wife and son have their tastes, I have mine. Let us each have our own watchlists. These aren’t revolutionary ideas. Just look at Netflix or Hulu and follow their lead.
  • Beware of the free trial

    By Tiimmmy
    I was going survey the app since I listen to the great courses lectures on Audible. There was a promise of a free trial period but as soon as I signed up I was charges - $179 yearly subscription. It may have been a fantastic sevice but when you trick people into charges I don't want to continue my association. Thankfully Apple was able to reverse the charges so they get ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.
  • Makes my commute worthwhile

    By AnnetteGallagher
    I love the range of content - almost too much interesting stuff to choose from! I look forward to having time to listen and love that the audio only option lets my other apps (like traffic and weather alerts) work while I’m on the road. Thank you for this amazing program!
  • App less stable than a Kardashian marriage

    By WillyGinNYC
    Incredible content but it keeps freezing and crashing
  • Sad that the app is so buggy.

    By Ef Jackie
    Great content but video barely works on the app. It will just load forever. If I start the audio, then switch to video it seems to work sometimes. The app is basically useless for video.
  • Learning is good

    By GCmanNYC
    Rather than passive TV or cute U-Tube, watching a Great Course engages critical thinking, complex concepts and teaches new and interesting subjects.
  • These courses are wonderful I have taking a few of them and I’m interested and take an a lot more.

    Thank you very much for the great courses.
  • App issues — Better to buy through Amazon

    By Adgj2468
    After seeing so many reviews from other viewers who have struggled with app issues, I’m surprised that Great Courses hasn’t made an effort to fix them. Like the other viewers, I’m encountering substantial tech problems, as well as lack of features available through other video platforms. I do like their content and have had more success purchasing it through Amazon. GC just doesn’t have the tech commitment to keep up with the trends.

    The 14 day free trial is impossible to cancel before they start billing you. Clicking the “cancel subscription” button on the desktop version brings up a pop up that won’t actually let you cancel, just begs you to stay. I tried through the phone app too and it tries to redirect me to a nonexistent App Store page and then shows an error message. I knew they’d try all the usual tricks - require you to cancel 24hrs in advance, hide the cancel button - but I didn’t think they’d actually make it impossible! I’m just going to have to cancel my credit card before they can charge it. Do not trust Great Courses Plus
