Pluralsight iOS App offers offline course viewing

I swapped my TrainSignal subscription over to Pluralsight over the weekend. Following the acquisition of TrainSignal last month, integration of their courseware into Pluralsight has moved along very quickly.

With all of the changes in vSphere 5 I thought it a good idea to get hold of Trainsignal's latest and greatest as part of my VCP5 preparations. I've…
