Featured review

I enjoyed the course a lot. I liked the functionality of the app and the way the code is written. I would say, the only thing this course lacks is making the app fully responsive, even though it can be done by yourself easily using media queries. Sometimes instructor goes way too fast through the code and it makes it quite difficult to follow it, you will need to rewind or slow the video down at times.
