iTunes U iOS App Updated with Easier Lecture Note Taking

For users of the iTunes U iOS app (released in January), Apple just released an update that makes it easier to take notes while you’re watching or listening to a lecture within app. Other new features include a much better search feature and a better way to share your favourite courses with friends and family. Here’s what’s new:

What’s New in Version 1.2

iTunes U 1.2 now makes it easy to take notes while watching or listening to a lecture. This update also adds the ability to search within posts, assignments, notes, and materials — from any of your subscribed courses — using the improved Search feature in iTunes U. It is also now simple to share your favorite courses with friends using Twitter, Mail, and Messages.

Back in April, both Stanford and Open University announced they each exceeded 50 million downloaded courses by users via iTunes U.

You can download iTunes U for free here from the App Store. What are some of your favourite courses within iTunes U?
