Very frustrating to Log In 1/5
Logging is is the more frustrating process vs any other major app. The “security check” (even when clicking all the boxes correctly) is a horrible experience.
By Integrity Review
Ads, upsells, click bait and lame “classes” all slow down and interrupt the conversation. Spoke to their mobile team, they admitted it’s ad impressions and interactions that matter most.
They nag you to upload your private address book so they can spam and sell it as a feature to advertisers.
Extremely confusing! 1/5
I tried to use this app for more than a year and find the structure very confusing. Needs to be simplified for “not every day” users.
Connection issues 4/5
The mobile app has sometimes connection issues.
Messages unusable for me 2/5
Get notifications of messages but then the app stops refreshing them. Have to go to the web app to have a conversation.
Also too many useless notifications such that you end up ignoring the badge.
I deleted it and just use the web app.
UPDATE: I tried it again because the browser badgers me to use the app. Day 2 of using it and it thinks I have no internet connection even though I do and all other apps know it. This is a train wreck.
Fraudulent purchases 1/5
For some reason your software is letting people use credit card numbers in my phone that I did not give them permission to use because of your software there has been fraudulent purchases on my phone
By Cpl AV
App keeps crashing after update, I keep getting prompted to sign in. What happened!
No permite subir videos 2/5
Buenas. En función de la más reciente actualización, cada vez que intento subir un video no se puede...
When uploading my photo, whenever I’d click to save, nothing would happen. Then it glitched and kept saying that the photo upload had failed over and over in a notification. After trying to add more background to my profile, the same thing happened with the save button.
Extension of Facebook 2/5
I’ve had my LinkedIn account for several years, and made some good contacts, but recently it has turned into an extension of Facebook. The people that are posting FB crap don’t consider LinkedIn to be a professional platform, and don’t care.
Enjoying LinkedIn 4/5
I am very happy to use LinkedIn.
Sometimes the iPhone keyboard covers the LinkedIn comment I am writing and I have to write it blindly, post it, and then see if I made any mistakes.
Unfollowing someone has no effect, no matter how many times I try.
Hidden posts show up the next time I load the app.
Tons of ads.
“New posts available” are usually just ads.
Now the app has stopped loading updates and requires that I reinstall it in order to restore functionality.
Account disappeared after medical leave. 1/5
My account and all my information, skills, Lynda.com certificates and recommendations completely disappeared. I was out on medical leave for 3 months and when I returned I tried logging into my account. It kept saying that my email address didn’t exist. I wanted to open a service request however to do so you have to be logged in. So I tried to create an account using my same email address. If my account existed, the account creation should have failed saying email address already exists or is being used but it didn’t. The account was created successfully. I opened a service request: [190312-003939]. All support keeps telling me is they cannot locate the account. They don’t seem to be very worried. There has to be database archives to locate the account prior to December 2018 so it can be restored. Disappointed in such poor support!
App availability 1/5
This application should reach older versions on iOS, there are apps that will install the compatible for your device, and state that it is not the newest version, but it will still function.
NO SOLICITING 1/5
I hate LinkedIn its just salespeople requesting to connect just so they can try and sell you their garbage products and services.
The app design is fine besides the icons. I don’t know who designed or approved them but they are absolutely horrendous on both the app and even worse the website, it’s like they downloaded free ones off the internet and use low quality exports.
Can’t login with google auth anymore 1/5
App only allows LinkedIn login password. I can’t login anymore no matter what I try
Don’t trust this app 1/5
Got a text message from someone I had met in person and had absolutely no interaction or connection with on LinkedIn or anywhere online. Within 1 week received a LinkedIn email on suggested connections and who is on this email, the person who sent me a text.
No thanks, go read someone else’s texts.
Ever since the update yesterday, I can't see the version cause it won't open, it keeps crashing.
Stupid and Buggy 1/5
Navigation with this app is a pain. It behaves and looks nothing like the web sight. It frequently hangs, crashes and loses or corrupt my data. I'm not going to waste anymore time.
Iphone Xs max. Cannot post as top of screen is overlapped with pull down menu. Cannot cancel as left side is overlapped with clock.
Thanks for fixing the app!
App hasn’t worked in months 1/5
I have used Linked In and Sales Navigator for years, but now my activity has dramatically decreased because the app never works. Every day for the last six months or so, my page won’t load and I get a message that it’s not me and to try again later. I have re installed the app and same thing.
Linked in customer service is notoriously bad so I guess I’m just out of luck.
Not a very good example of a business platform when the app doesn’t work.
Need to use to pervious version 5/5
How can i use the previous version of linkedin??? I cou
It hangs so often that it seems useless..!! 1/5
I have downloaded this app many times and yet it hangs and doesn’t move ..!! Page is not coming at all..!!
Responding to recruiters new feature is terrible 4/5
By unnecessary change
In the past when I was contacted by a recruiter in my message inbox, I could respond directly to the recruiter. Now, the app forces you to respond whether or not you are interested in the job before you have a chance to respond. To me this is a 100% unnecessary feature and is an unprofessional way to contact a recruiter to express interest. The right way to treat a recruiter is to write that person directly and let them know your intentions, perhaps including some background for your decision. This can help keep communication channels open in the future and is a networking opportunity. This new feature is a result of someone “overthinking” the situation. This goes back to the old saying, “If its not broke, don't fix it”
Can’t share profile link 1/5
Why is it not possible to share my profile url or covert my profile to PDF within the app? It’s easy to do with PC.
LinkedIn premium charge 1/5
By Eeshwar Ponnala
I tried using LinkedIn premium free trial for a month, was on a weekend trip with family, phone battery was dead so didn’t checked the subscription end date. I cancelled my subscription ASAP and contacted both LinkedIn, Apple unfortunately none of them says they are responsible. Didn’t refunded the charge contacted which I cancelled within a day. Not customer friendly.
I hate LinkedIn 1/5
I’ll say it again. I hate LinkedIn. It is so frustrating that it feels like you need to have a profile to validate your professional presence and experience. The platform is clunky and inelegant, I don’t understand why it’s a GD trial every time you ever try to log in, and on top of that I constantly have fifty thousand notifications about missed messages and activity that are actually NOTHING. I have to maintain my organization’s page as well, so I am unfortunately on the site often enough to keep my inbox clear, and yet the app and the site are always bombarding me with notifications and flags about activity that is not even real. Stop the fake notifications! I dream of a future where LinkedIn is irrelevant and gone.
Poor customer service 1/5
So this is the third review I am writing, my first two were taken down.
Again my issue is a simple one.
1. Make the “X” to click off a potential contact a bit larger so I am not opening one instead of deleting it.
2. If I delete someone don’t put them back in the suggested contacts over and over and over and over. They should not ever appear again.
Two simple fixes to two problems with linked in.
Additional problem that was not in my first two reviews:
3. Don’t delete my review because you don’t like it.
Keeps getting worse. Nothing has been fixed and the little “x” seems harder to click. I don’t want to click on the “x” just to have it open someone’s profile. It is a false click. I am sure that is why I get so many “people are looking at your profile” notifications each week, the tiny “x”
I will add another problem:
4. Half the time now I cannot open a profile I actually want to see. The program freezes and I need to close and reopen the app, then I need to TRY to find that persons again.
Please, I implore you, please fix these small, but glaring, problems
Constant Badge App Icon for no reason 3/5
For as long as I can remember, the app has had a badge icon as if there is a notification of some sort. When entering the app, it will hold a badge on the networking tab, yet when you click it, there is no request or anything. I have uninstalled, reinstalled and signed in on a Pc to inspect my profile. Guess I’ll have to turn of badge app icons? Very annoying!
Good stuff 4/5
Good app for connecting and networking. How come we can’t delete messages though? I feel this should be a standard feature.
Not bad, but... 3/5
The linked in app itself isn’t all that bad, but there’s got to be a way to get rid of that pull down window that’s always showing a small banner on top! It’s the window with 3 steps to get started on LinkedIn. First scroll page says “keep building your network”. It is extremely annoying and pops up every time you open the app, and doesn’t completely go away ever. It reappears as soon as you scroll back up in your feed. That’s the one thing keeping me from using the app more, I don’t need a little pop up deal blocking half my screen when I’m scrolling through my feed. Thanks, please get rid of it.
Help removing “Student Voices” 3/5
I used to love scrolling through my LinkedIn feed on my phone; sometimes more than FB because the content is more interesting. However, the new addition of the Student Voices bar takes up a ridiculous amount of real estate on my screen. I don’t even have an interest in the feature, yet I can’t find a way to disable it or remove it. It’s always there taking up space and annoying me! A little help please??
Crash problem 4/5
In new update when I want to read my messeages the app crashes.
Biggest mistake was to reinstall it again 1/5
By Junaid Zafar
Have been a user of linkedin app but instead of getting better this app is touching the lowest of levels everyday. Keeps freezing and crashing on scrolling. Tried everything from reinstalling it to updating my iOS but nothing worked. If you can’t make it work please shut it down because we’ll be happy using the website version only.
By joeyjoey g
I guys comprised overrated
Used vessels to put burst burdens with optimism and complied with skill and poise
While unratting writer and people in educationed with friendliness and professionalism unestimating a person skills and abilities that range close or near your communicative skills glossed writhing American standards and claiming answers within my morals of self evaluation and study
Simplify I think the forwardness is fake but apporiates to future needs within yourselves
Last update is unstable 2/5
By SG Golf Edge
Please either back out your last update or have it debugged again. The message history crashes and never loads. This never happened before.
It even takes forever to log off.
Every section that I open like Home, connections, alerts, nothing opens up.
This is the first time in all
Your updates that this has happened.
Great website, great content, terrible app 2/5
You’d think for a company that thrives on networking for other companies would at least have the technical support to upkeep an app in the modern times.
Unfortunately, the LinkedIn app is laced with bugs and it’s slower than most social media apps. I find the lagging leads to repeated postings, information isn’t saving, and I just realized I’ve wasted 15 minutes trying to update one component of my profile. Total waste of time.
I’m new to LinkedIn in a sense, but I appreciate its efforts. Still, I think I’ll be sticking to their website version, not this poorly run app.
App Crashing 2/5
By Agent 6
Every time I attempt to share a job the entire app crashes. I deleted and reinstalled and it is still happening.
Update won’t download 2/5
Tried several times to download the most recent update on my iPad. Doesn’t do it.
Unnecessary security check 1/5
I have tried to log in several times from the app itself, but every time I log in it takes me to a security page when I have to verify I am not a robot. Then after I pass with a 100% accuracy it takes me to another unnecessary step in which they have to send a security link to my email, then I will open this email with the SECURITY CHECK which it will take me to the mobile site which I don’t need to be taken to. Then i will go back to the app, and try to log in ONCE AGAIN, and guess what?...............it freaking happens again. Software Team please address this and fix it.
Horrible for job searches 1/5
By Tiny Majesty
App will crash and delete applications that you’re in the middle of without saving anything. This has happened to be 6 TIMES over the last month. Don’t bother!
Worst customer service 1/5
Hands-down. Some of the worst I’ve ever experienced.
App is freezing upon opening 4/5
The app is freezing at home/feed screen and controls are not working. No data on the feed screen and It is completely unresponsive. I deleted the app and reinstalled, still the same issue.
Horrible customer support 1/5
App updated and now I can’t log in. Tells me to contact support. I do so, I some generic response from Micala. She tells me to provide information, I do so and try to log on from multiple other locations. No problems signing in anywhere else. I provide her with that information as requested and I get no response from anyone.
Duplicate messages 1/5
When you wish someone congratulations from your cell phone, and choose a suggested message. After the message is sent...another duplicated message is there to send. Please fix this. I have screenshots of what is happening as well if you need to see what I’m talking about.
By כרגיל כה
This app helps scammers! Please be careful do not work with this up or give any information to this app!! Because of this app I lost $2000! I will get them on my own thank you “Linking” for “helping” me out by “Protection” in you’re APP You Have Scamers!!! And Tiffs!
You call this release notes? 1/5
By just another concerned parent
I’ve higher expectations from you guys...
Becoming Facebook 2/5
Wish there was a way to use hashtags to help create filters in the feed. Block anything with a certain hashtag or maybe just a person.
Mobile is inferior to desktop version 3/5
I find LinkenIn a valuable way to connect professionally. I like the convenience of being able to access my account on my laptop or through the app. The mobile app has issues though, primarily that the news feed can not be displayed chronologically with “most recent” instead of the algorithm-determined “top stories”. The value of this network is seeing what people are doing now and what events are coming up. Eliminating the ability to view the feed by recent posts makes the mobile app useless for me.
Please change the app to display the feed is chronological order. This is not Facebook.
