iPhone/iPad AppStore apps are for iOS devices only!

The iOS™ apps on this page work great with your iPhone™, iPad™, iPod touch™, or other compatible device only - however, they are NOT intended for use with your PC or Mac.

Your iOS™ device is designed to get compatible apps from the iTunes AppStore™. You are welcome to obtain our iOS™ apps, therefore, uniquely from the iTunes AppStore-- just as is the case for all equivalent apps from all other companies eveywhere.

These iOS™ apps (programs) have been needed to be specifically designed, programmed, and tested (a process involving hundreds to thousands of hours and specialized skills and tools) to work on iOS™ devices and they certainly do work great on them. However, this also means that they work on iOS™ devices only--purchases made via the iTunes AppStore™ are not compatible with and will not work on, for example, your PC or Mac.

If you'd like to use a given app for both your iPhone / iPad / iPod and its equivalent piece of software for your PC or Mac (where one is available), as some people do in order to get 'the best of both worlds', you would need to purchase these separately. This 'a la carte' system ensures that you pay for only that which you intend to use and is fair to all involved. At any rate, it could not be differently due to Apple's sensible policy that its AppStore is for iOS apps only and effectively that no 'intermingling' is allowed.

We thank you for your understanding that we are obliged to follow all other software vendors in following Apple's policies in this regard.

In addition to our PC and WindowsMobile™ offerings, you can now study for your Transport Canada written exams using our GroundSchool Canada apps for iPhone™, iPad™, and/or iPod™ Touch.

Features include:

  • FREE built-in updates that ensure that you always have access to the latest actual-test-simulating questions.
  • No expiration date. If you purchase it via the AppStore now, you can study now and into the future as necessary.
  • All charts and figures that you'll need to reference are included (though for certain paper chart questions you will want to independently purchase the recommended paper charts, as TC recommends).
  • Compatible with all classroom courses and syllabus programs.
  • Excellent ease-of-use.
  • Multiple study and learning modes
  • Take as many simulated practice exams as you'd like!
The apps are available via the Apple AppStore. Just click on one of the links above to learn more and/or to purchase. You can be studying on you iOS compatible device in no time!
"The private pilot edition of this program was recommended to me by a well known flight examiner. I was sort of skeptical buying an app to study for my exam. Definitely a big mistake. After buying it I regretted not buying it sooner! It really prepared me well, and the format is much friendlier than well known publications because it allows you to focus on the areas you truly need to prepare in. ... I felt I was weak in met, and my practice test showed that. On my real exam I scored 94% in met. Well worth the price and I have already recommended the program to my peers. 5/5!"

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I purchase the iPhone™/iPad™ versions?

AnswerClick on one of the links above. This will take you to the iTunes™ AppStore™ where you can purchase it just like any other App for your iOS device.

I have an iPad™. Will the graphics be 'iPad™-sized?'

AnswerYes! Our GroundSchool apps are 'dual mode.' This means that if you run them on an iPhone™ device, they will fit themselves to the iPhone™ screen and if you run it on an iPad&;trade, it will naturally fit itself to the iPad™ screen. This also means that if you happy to have both an iPhone™ and an iPad™ device and you happen to purchase an app of ours via the same iTunes™ account, then you will be able to run it on both devices in natural mode and have only paid once. In this policy, we are proudly in the 'elite' 3% of less of AppTunes app vendors who both offer native iPhone™ and iPad™ versions of the same app and don't charge seperately for them!


Is one of the apps sufficient to prepare me for my Transport Canada theory exams / papers?

AnswerYes, absolutely. Our GroundSchool - Canada apps are complete systems, featuring the totality of questions, answers, and explanations as found in our desktop computer software that has helped thousands of people pass their tests. So yes, in theory, the app is 100% all that you need. However, in practice, while the apps are great and can be used exclusively, solving some problems on the limited space of some devices (such as on a relatively small iPhone screen) can be difficult, so many people purchase both an iPhone™ / iPad™ version for use on the road (and for hard core 'question drills', if desired) and also the PC version for more contemplative home study). Again, in terms of content, however, it's all there in the iOS™ versions.

I want to use both the PC and iPhone™ / iPad™ software. Can I get a discount?

AnswerWe'd love to be able to offer this. Unfortunately, the iPhone™/iPad™ apps must be purchased via the Apple AppStore and Apple policy does not allow us to co-mingle promotions like this. (In fact, when you order the app, we don't even know that you are one of our customers).

Are the iPhone™ / iPad™ apps up to date?

AnswerHere's the really cool thing - the iPhone™/iPad™ apps feature a built-in update mechanism. What this means is that with just a few clicks, our app will check the internet for updated data and download them to your device as necessary. This is integrated, fast, and free for those who have purchased the app.

When does my app purchase expire?

AnswerPursuant to the terms of the AppStore EULA, this is a LIFETIME PERSONAL LICENSE to use the app. In other words, it doesn't expire! It will be waiting for you when you need this. Compare this to our competitor whose more expensive product has very short expiration dates, forcing you to pay extortionate continuation fees if you want to keep studying before a test or review later on.

Do I need to be online to use the apps?

AnswerNo, you don't! Once an app is installed on your device (after you purchase it from the iTunes™ AppStore), you don't need to be actively connect it to use it. This means, for example, that you can spend your time in a passenger seat of an automobile or aircraft studying even when you don't have an active internet connection. Of course, you need to have an internet connection to your device to get updates from our servers from time to time, but as far as everyday use goes, you certainly do NOT have to be connected to the Internet.

How many questions are in the apps?

AnswerThe apps feature the same number of questions as the PC software. Our preps feature question sets very representative of the overall Transport Canada test banks.

After I update, I get no data in the app, the background appears 'white', or there is some other problem.

AnswerA very small number of users have reported this problem which appears to be due to an iTunes™ / AppStore™ bug rather than something specific to our apps. Furthermore, we haven't seen this problem In the very unlikely problem in some months now, suggseting that Apple has indeed fixed it at their end. However, in the unlikely case that this happens to you, please visit this page which will help you get going ASAP
