Apple has issued a small update to its iTunes U app. The app allows users to access popular courses from major universities and also offers other free education classes from third-party sources. While a majority of the latest iTunes U update is dedicated to bug fixes, a welcome new feature is that iTunes U now uses the popular pull-to-refresh gesture to check for new course updates. Here’s everything the release notes is new to the latest release:

  • Checks for course updates when you pull to refresh the notepad.
  • Resolves an issue that may prevent courses from updating.
  • Fixes a problem where iTunes U may unexpectedly quit when opening the Catalog repeatedly.
  • Improves support for Arabic, French, German, Greek, Italian, Russian and Spanish.

iTunes U is a free download.
