I've been enjoying treehouse for about 30 or 40 hours now. When I first signed up I noticed there a note on the home page about having an Ipad app.

I just now logged in from my android phone and see that your site seems to work pretty well from there. For some reason when I saw the note about the iPad app, I assumed that treehouse was not very mobile or android friendly. You might make mention that the site works well on mobile as well near where you mention the iPad app.

So the iPad app is specific to actually doing the courses and tracks, watching videos, doing quizzes etc. within the native app. A lot of the site though is pretty responsive across platforms!

I had a similar experience. I have very spotty network access while commuting between islands for work, and during the first month or so of using the ipad app, it almost always had problems connecting.

So I saved the tea treehouse website to my home screen and used it whenever the ipad app wasn't working.

As you pointed out, the site is fairly mobile friendly and almost completely functional on mobile touch screens - the teamtreehouse team are doing a marvelous job. I have no reservations about recommending the site.

Since then though the issue with the ipad app failing to connect has disappeared and I've been using it exclusively when on the go. The app is snappy (faster), more reliable in it's touch behaviors and a pleasure to use.

I just completed the git basics module using their faux console to practice git commits and logs etc while on a boat in the middle of nowhere.

It's like magic.

It's worth noting that we now have an Android app and we just released v2 of our iPad app.
