  • Content great but app buggy

    I love the content so much but the app makes it so frustrating. In Apple TV there is a glitch that makes the audio lag the video a few seconds. You have to back out of the video and restart. This can happen several time in one video. This has been happening for over a year and the company knows about the problem but somehow it never gets fixed. Also since switching over to Wondrium, lots of videos have no content. I never had this problem when it was great courses plus. I wish they would fix these problems because it’s some of the best streaming content.
  • Audio and Video out of sync

    Please fix this. During most lectures audio will stop working properly and you can hear the same sentence twice, after which it drags behind the video and the subtitles. I have to exit the lecture and hit continue again. Sometimes a few times per lecture.
  • Missing lectures - Course has no lectures

    I am frequently surprised how many “Missing lectures - Course has no lectures” errors I see even 6 months after the big switch to the new brand. Please fix this bug as soon as possible. Could be a great app otherwise.
  • Love the content, but audio sync is problematic

    The content is wonderful, but it seems that every time I watch video, the audio and video gets out of sync making watching very distracting. Given that I have a gigabit internet connection and mesh Wi-Fi, I think this is an app or infrastructure problem. Please fix this!

    Stupid name, meaningless, does not work with smart speakers or remotes. I was a subscriber and until it’s named back to TheGreatCourses I am not! If you’re a stockholder, show up and fire those bums.
  • Love the courses, the app needs work

    To start, let me say that the courses offered by the teaching company have been uniformly outstanding. Interesting and informative, I am continuing to enjoy subjects I never had time for in school. Prior versions of the app had stability and “freeze up” problems, but the latest version seems to have solved those. My only real complaint is that when I am listening to a lecture and get a phone call (iPhone) the lecture does not stop, requiring me to tell the caller to hold on while I change from phone to Wondrium app and stop the playback. Sometimes even when I am not listening the lecture starts up when I answer the phone. Very annoying, Please fix!
  • Wondrium App poor - TGC still good

    Wondrium app poor. Slow response, doesn’t return last screen position when looking, buttons to start course often not work, long delay when course does start. Many other glitches that were not in the old TGC App. Needs serious attention. Old TGC courses are still great. Added Wondrium courses mediocre, repetitive, and in obscure and less interesting areas. If future courses are in old Wondrium style instead of old TGC style, less of a interest in subscribing at the high fee. This review is more than 6 months from change so there was time for app repair & new content addition to address these issues.
  • Excellent content, meh app

    By Bubbagump210
    Wondrium is the place for undergrad level introductory course like lectures. There is a ton of variety and they are generally excellent. The app is a bit annoying though. Three issues come to mind. First, “Continue Watching” is never on the front screen when you open the app. Choose any other tab to get away from Home, come back to Home, and then “Continue Watching” appears with your most recently watched courses so you can pick up where you left off. Annoying. Next, you cannot go full screen and have the white “grab” bar at the bottom of the screen disappear like in every other streaming app ever. Annoying. Finally, there is no ability to adjust quality/data usage for either streaming or downloads. One size fits all. Also…. Annoying. If they were to fix these three things, the app would be MUCH better.
  • Could be great but the app needs Support

    I tried watching a Robert Greenberg lecture on the Apple TV and the audio kept glitching and getting out of sync. All of the other content on my Apple TV works flawlessly. If this app is properly updated and maintained it could be an extraordinary source of learning for many people - I suppose it could now as it stands but only with a considerable amount of frustration.
  • Fix the audio sync issues!

    By Jon76inDC
    I have used GCP/Wondrium for years and love it! But for the past 6 to 8 months a VERY annoying issue has arisen with the Apple TV app. I can usually watch 8 to 10 minutes of a video then the audio does a brief repeat of prior seconds then stays out of sync with the video thereafter. The only way to fix it is stop and resume the video and hope it doesn’t do it again 8 to 10 minutes later. This has been going on for 6 to 8 months at least. FIX IT! I would hate to have to cancel my membership after many years .. but this is annoying enough a problem to make it necessary.
