Just finished reading this article published by 9to5Mac on the sad state of iBooks Author and iTunes U. Here is another area where Apple dropped the ball, education tools. iBooks Author had so much potential when it launched in 2012. I invested quite some time in it to build documentation that is enjoyable to use in my job as an IT professional. Six years later and nothing really changed except at… Google it seems.
iTunes U is another example of languishing application. If Apple is so serious about education, why is this app didn’t receive any meaningful updates last year at their education focused event?
There must be something inside Apple these days that consume so much of their ressources. This is the only way I can explain the current state of so many things not happening or changing. And again, this is worrisome.
