I’m excited to share some of the new features and updates we’ve added to the Earmark app this month.
My three favorite additions are the new built-in media player that lets you control audio playback within the app, the ability to add an email CC address to automatically forward CPE certificates, and the option to un-enroll from courses you don’t want to finish.
Here’s the full rundown:
Built-in media player
My favorite new addition is the built-in media player. When you start playing a podcast or audio course, you can access playback controls directly within the app. Tap the episode name to expand the player and get options like rewind, fast forward, play/pause, and scrubbing. You can even minimize the app while the audio keeps playing, just like a standalone podcast app. We’re rolling this out across all new courses, so stay tuned for more podcasts you can listen to right in the app.
Light mode is now default
Light mode is now the default look for new users. If you prefer dark mode, head to your profile settings and toggle it over to dark mode.
Improved channel sorting
We’ve improved channel sorting so the most recently updated courses appear at the top. You can also change the sort order to alphabetical if you prefer. Just tap the sort icon on the Channels screen.
Email CC for certificates
Add a second email address to your profile to automatically CC your CPE certificates. No more manual forwarding to collect certificates!
Our library has grown to over 800 hours of CPE, so we’ve marked some older courses as “Subscriber-Only” to encourage Unlimited Subscriptions. These are only available to paying subscribers.
Your account settings and subscription status now sync across Android and iOS. Purchase a subscription on one device, and it’s available on the other!
Filter for IRS CE in the CPE Tracker
We’ve added an IRS CE tab on the CPE tracker to easily filter courses that qualify for IRS continuing education.
Un-enroll from courses
Don’t want to finish a course? You can now un-enroll so the course will no longer display on your “In Progress” courses on your Profile.
