Be careful when purchasing courses via mobile app. The price mentioned in app is different for every single course when compared to the website; I've a case open seeking explanation (696850) for this misleading information.
I did a simple test. I closed the udemy app, started driving using Google map, after 3 hours, udemy on background, doing absolutely nothing, consumed more power than the navigation app. Of course if you have a new phone with the latest android version, you can stop apps draining your phone's battery, but then you can download your courses. Besides, it is shaming that Udemy has such a low profile app.
I really like the way this app is designed. I'd used this one and Udacity for different free courses. The way the Udacity class was presented was totally opaque and counter-intuitive, but Udemy worked how I wanted and expected it to work.
Note: Get your courses from desktop site, prices are cheaper there for no reason. tl;dr; UI needs heavy rework and some bug fixing. Apparent syncing problems and missing features. Review: Service is great but app not so. Playing videos while on mobile data is choppy and occasionally it throws in "can't play videos offline" and takes forever to restore the playback. How about use the buffering to remember more than 2 seconds of the video? Pressing pause and going elsewhere or suspending doesn't always work, but it sometimes erratically starts playback in background with no way to stop it unless you go back to video. Lectures are not always marked done properly in app and there's disparity with online and app course statuses. Also why can't I make meaningful bookmark notes on mobile? It just adds one and I'm unable to remove it in app. Also editimg bookmark content would be nice on without having to do it in-video. Also it feels sluggish even on a fast phone.
This is the best way to learn new thing and this app is awsome online courses
