Version 1.4.0

This new version of the Pimsleur Course Manager has a vary useful and often asked for feature: Audio controls on your iPhone/iPad lock screen.

This new feature allows you to pause, play and skip forward and back in the lesson when the lock screen is engaged on your device.

Another benefit of this new feature allows the app to work with the audio controls found on the steering wheel of most new cars and trucks and also with bluetooth audio streaming.

The lock screen audio controls become very useful while listening on the go, jogging or exercising, and you wish to pause or repeat what you just heard without having to unlock the screen and navigate to the app.
