Very intriguing and no cost to get into a course that you may be interested in "if available" with the option to pay into the course you find for a certificate, college credit, etc. That said this is awesome to at least Download and look through with many courses from multiple colleges and universities. Be sure to read over the course to see how long it lasts, and what you can get if you decided the course is worth paying for.

The concept is great, but the whole app is just buggy and flaky. I've only gone through the "Navigating the app" course, but the controls just flat out don't work. You constantly have to go back and forth to get the next page to load. The exit button to back out of the lesson doesn't work at all, so the only way to pause a lesson is to force close the app. And no matter how many times I've gone through every step of the lesson, I still can't get it to acknowledge that I've completed the lesson.

The EdX app remains less than user-friendly and some bugs persist. Course progress is not intuitive on an individual course's menu. Lessons completed are not differentiated from those yet to complete (such as with checkmarks on the Coursera app). All courses, both completed and in-progress, appear on a single courses tab. This is cluttered if you've taken several. Also, course progress isn't always captured when lectures are viewed on the app; I frequently have to redo them on the desktop site.
