It's not a design issue. The problem is that we're in the middle of a long project to update the main website. The new website will require an update to all of the mobile apps deployed. To avoid that having to be something that all app user had to do immediately after launch of the website, we decided to use an alternate site to host the mobile app data. It took a couple of weeks for us to streamline the update process, but now we're updating the course directory data weekly. Once we get to the new website, and everyone updates their app to the version that points to the new site, all course directory searches will be against the main website database, and there won't be any synchronization necessary.
We apologize for the inconvenience, but we think it was the best interim solution.
