Motuto Live Tutor by SOLARO Education App Review (iOS, Free)


Languages: English

Seller: Castle Rock Research Corp.

NOTE: 1.4.3 and later takes advantage of features exclusive iOS 6, so motuto is no longer supported on devices running iOS 5 or earlier.

1.4.4 corrects an issue preventing iPhone users from fully connecting to tutoring sessions, as well as a small fix to the On Hold screen.

1.4.3 includes:
~ Improved user experience for students getting started with faster session starts, help for describing your homework problems, and better support for screenshots so you can get the most out of your time with motuto live tutors!
~ Fixes for minor stability issues on slower connections
~ A refreshed motuto brand
~ Full compatibility for users running 6.1.3

From version 1.4:
~ 1.4.1 corrected an issue related to sending photos to tutors
~ A new calendar to show you when our live tutors will be available. just tap on the Availability button!
~ If you were an iPad user running iOS 6 and had trouble choosing an existing photo to send to a tutor, consider that bug squashed!
~ Other really minor bug fixes (they probably didn't bother anyone, but they bothered us!)
~ And a new release joke:
The trigonometric functions decided to throw a party and invite all their friends. At the party Exponential was sitting alone in a corner looking miserable. Tan approached her and said: "Exponential, why are you sitting here alone? Why don't you try to integrate?" At which point Exponential turned around and said: "As if that ever changes anything!"

    by CC362

    The tutors are very nice and they are very helpful. They help you understand whatever you want to learn. Also it's much more fun than getting a tutor you meet in real life. I like the added on whiteboard, too.

  • Love it but

    by Hans Capozzi

    I love this app I have gotten this great tutor (tutor111) they help you and the picture taking thing is great but first I had glitches with the white board and it should become 24/7 tutoring because I often need help late at night and on the weekend

  • It's great

    by Roodish Proverbs

    This is great to have, it's costs after the first 20 minute session like $5 US, so it's a little expensive when your asking questions to get an idea of specific material or you just need another example if something. All in all this is a great application, well worth the download, the tutors are very thorough and willing to explain every little step so you're never lost!

  • Great mobile tutoring app

    motuto is easy to use and the tutors are easy to work with
