iOS app review: iTunes U - Bringing free university lectures to your iPhone

Hello everyone, I just stumbled on a great app called iTunes U. It's filled with great psychology talks and lectures! It's perfect if your looking for a refresher course or if you are looking to learn something entirely new. Simply search for psychology or counseling (or the topics of your choice) by tapping the magnifying glass at the bottom right of the page, tap on the title, then tap on "free" to download the audio or video file. Once the download begins, you can start listening to it immediately by tapping on the title (it needs a few seconds to buffer). Have a look and tell me what you think. It's Free!

You can download the app [here]
