It doesn't work anymore on my cellphone or tablet after the last update. I'm afraid it'll happen the same with the PC, in a while, the only device that works now. It also blocks the simultaneous use of the earphones and the audio files within the app. It's Easter break now, and I'm not using it for a pair of weeks, but I need it urgently to get fixed. I use all the American Headway books from level Starters to 5th level every single working day. Go back to the previous version. PLEASE HELP!

Not a very good start. I downloaded it as i already have an account on the website. The app installed but when I click Sign In the sign in screen is displayed off-screen on my Android phone. So - I can;t sign in and the app is useless. I've been emailing their support for days about another matter and no reply. My impression about this company is that there are some good products but they aren't supporting them at all. (Update - you can sign in if you put your phone into landscape mode - but really this should work in both modes. It just looks untested). Update2 - amusingly the representative of the company advises to email them - but since as a rule they don't answer that won't help! As of now the website version of this product is 100% broken. Avoid OUP like the plague if you care about your students.

I've only used the sample books because I can't see the correct answers at all. I can check if the answers are correct or not (but only if I type my answers first - I'm a teacher, so I'd rather not do the exercises all over again every time I teach, but it would be nice to project the answers on a screen for the students to see). I can see an eye icon that should reveal the answers, I think, but I can't click it. Edit: The Classroom Presentation Tool costs 8 times the book. I can't afford it.
