After releasing the “GMAT Pill HD” iPad app for iPad, GMAT Pill has released version 2.0 of “GMATPractice” for iPhone – allowing students to download course videos onto mobile devices and watch them on-the-go without an internet connection.
The on-the-go GMAT iphone app includes similar capabilities as its larger counterpart – with the added convenience of extra convenience and mobility. The app is optimized for both iPhone 4 and iPhone 5 – including maximum viewing space with the larger version. The app is compatible with both iOS5 and iOS6 versions.
Here’s how to use the GMATPractice app.
Navigate the course menu and select any video you’d like. You can download each individually by tapping the download icon for that video on the menu as pointed in the diagram above. Once tapped, the download status bar will appear at the bottom of the screen.
GMAT Pill recommends that you download videos while you are at home with a WiFi connection (free of charge – and faster). Once you have downloaded videos in bulk or individually, you will be able to view them quickly even in airplane mode without an internet connection.
You can browse videos while an existing video is already playing. Simply tap the empty space on the right side of the screen to remove the menu and show the video in the background.
Once you have selected a GMAT video, simply rotate your device to landscape and the video will automatically maximize to the size of the screen for optimal viewing experience.
Swipe down – bring down the top bar menu
Swipe right – Once the top bar menu has been brought down in full screen landscape mode, you can swipe to the right to open up the video menu (navigate course menu)
Swipe left – Once the top bar menu has been brought down in full screen landscape mode, you can swipe to the left and open up the settings menu (login / toggle live and download modes)
In the settings menu, you can Login with your GMAT Pill credentials to access the premium areas of the video menu.
You can also toggle between “All Videos” and “Downloaded Only Mode.
All Videos – This is the live mode that shows the available videos.
Downloaded Only – This is the download mode that shows only videos that you downloaded locally to your mobile device for viewing later.
The GMATPractice App allows you to bulk download entire sections. For example, if you would like to download an entire section such as “Sentence Correction” or “Problem Solving” – simply tap the download icon as shown in the diagram above. A window will pop up displaying:
“You are about to download (34) videos” – and you will have the option to either cancel or download.
Once you click download – the download status bar will appear at the bottom of the screen. You will be able to manage this download process by going to Settings -> Manage Downloaded Videos
In the Settings -> Manage Downloaded Videos, you will be able to see which videos are currently being downloaded. You will also be able to select specific videos that were previously downloaded and delete those videos from your mobile device. You may want to do this to free up memory for future video downloads.
