Treehouse App NEEDED CHANGES!!!

Please please please know this is simply a list of wanted changes to the Treehouse app. It isn't meant to be negative in any sort of way. Its not meant to draw people to feel an urge to twist this into something negative and HAVE TO POST a negative comment about the app feedback and then to want nick pick at and say Im being negative and picky about the app. I've noticed others posting similar issues so I'm pushing for a better app experience myself. If you have suggestions or bugs for the app as well, add it to this discussion and I'm sure the Moderators will assist in getting the comments to the right people.

  1. A button next to a course on the track screen that says something to the effect of "Download All Videos for this Course". Having to go into each video and click Download Video is awful and the app puts a checkmark by that video when I go back to the video and quiz list screen even though I didn't watch it. Doesn't that defeat the purpose of the checkmarks? And going into each video one at a time, requires a person to babysit the app when they could push one button and come back in 15 mins with it finished downloading. (Downloading all the videos in iTunes and watching them on a Podcast app defeats the purpose/feature of seamlessly watching videos followed by a quiz. It hurts the user's experience.)

  2. Right now when I click on Download Video, the video starts downloading and then the video starts up but you can't stop the video playing until you go back to the video and quiz list.

  3. Replay button! When watching an advanced course on iOS, sometimes the typing and explanations of the teacher go by too fast and I find myself rewinding manually by hand many times. Having several replay buttons somewhere next to the play bar would be nice. A 5 second, 10-sec, 30-sec, and 60-sec button would be REALLY NICE!!!!

  4. A button on the left hand side above the bonus content button that creates a UIWebView Controller so we can use the forums inside the app. (minor side note suggestion: the Tracks and Library buttons should be flipped to match the order that is on the website.)

Love the tutorials you keep putting out!!! Keep up the awesome teaching!!!
