Pretty pointless There is no value added. The main website is largely mobile friendly and the books can be downloaded in your preferred format. Why bother?
No use for listening to audio I need to listen to the audio files when studying a language degree. But there's no way to do that in the usual way. Difficult to listen on the train without locking the screen! Also why do you have to manually change tracks?
Ok Wont let me download pdfs to my portable device, so not particularly helpful when studying a history degree!
Originally rated 3, given that it was a good concept with room to grow. Now, giving it 1 star. It's clunky. Having reinstalled on my new phone, it, for some reason, defaults to screen reader mode with no obvious way to disable, and no suggestion either on my phone or OU account that I should require it. The app is clunky and dated while carrying not much information of any value. Interface and application design rules taught in the OU own modules are ignored. Terrible app I would not recommend.
Download Files Too Big Was able to use the app for my first module but now starting the second I have been unable to use the app. I have downloaded Book 1 from my current module and when I have attempted to open it on the app, I am informed that the file is too big. If this can be recitified by changing settings somehow, then please get in touch and I will ammend my rating.
Good app Used this app for a couple of years with a Nexus 7, it didn't like latest update so I had to uninstall and reinstall, all working perfectly. My 3 modules are all there. You need a separate book reader though but this is fine. Great for study.
Updated build for Android 5 'Lollipop'.
