Learning circle has been in Windows Phone store for over a year now and it has been very well received with consistent 4+ star rating in many markets. I finally managed to submit an update for the app which cleared store certification today.
So, what’s new in this release:
- Removed ads. When I created the app, I made the decision to host a service to support the app which has costs. I wanted to make sure I don’t end up paying for that out of my pocket as the app is free so ads were really a safety net. For months, cost for hosting the service hasn’t been a problem so I decided to get out of the way of learners and leave them alone with Khan Academy’s legendary content. I’m not a big fan of ads anyways.
- Updated content library with recent additions at Khan Academy and Channel 9.
- A few other usability improvements such as multi-select list on downloads page.
If you use learning circle on Windows Phone, you should definitely update to the latest version from store. Let me know if you have any feedback.
