Can I do all the same things with the app that I can do when I access Lynda.com from a browser?

The app gives you unlimited access to the subscription library, and lets you browse by subject, software, and new courses, as well as play, pause, rewind, and auto-play courses. It also allows full-screen playback, and provides both course and video titles for search results. Some features, such as exercise files, transcripts, bookmarks, and closed captioning, are not currently available on the app.
