Dominik-san,

thank you for the comment and report! :smile:

I also noticed that the progress for the video lessons was not synced correctly in general. It seems to have worked perfectly for the audio lessons, but the video lessons were showing wrong percentages and when navigating to the detail view of a series a lot of lessons which I marked complete at the site were not marked completed in the app.


I marked the missing ones in the app complete manually now, which also fixed the percentage display on the course overiew in most cases. But it would be nice to have a working synchronisation between app and site completion status.


Still loving the app, though. :thumbsup:

Looks great. So much easier than syncinc my iPhone with my iTunes library (which I had to do because for some reason I was only able to log into the basic subscriber podcast on my PC but not on my iPhone).


Just a short FYI: I just took a first glance at the app and noticed that my progress bar for the 'Just for Fun' section is showing 333% progress. I only marked lesson 4 and 6 complete, though. So it should be 33%.
