Been using linkedin for years have yet to get anywhere using the app. I feel like the app is just another scheme to get all your information. You post all your info and photos to this site expecting to get somewhere within your career field and it’s just a site people put their info on and never look back at it again.
What needs to be looked into is how often are people logging into the site? If its months and years in between logins then this site is useless.
I’ve tried to use the app with an open mind, but it simply doesn’t work.
Issues I experienced today 2019 is searching for jobs it will show you the jobs, but click on them and try to get more information and I always get opps, not you, something went wrong.
Looks like it’s time to consolidate my online profiles and delete the profiles that I no longer have a use for. With linkedin being at the top of that list. Linkedin has turned into a kids safe zone style facebook. Where people post memes and all you can do is like or comment. They seem to be more focused on that stuff and not the job seeker side.
The current version has bugs— gives me old/outdated info 2/5
When you force the user to go thru more step to view their profile it makes no sense— please change back. Put the user picture back on the left side
Don’t make changes for the wrong reasons
Rhonda Miller 1/5
I’m sick of these apps not telling they cost money till you down load it. It’s a terrible business practice. I stoped the download better not charge me!!!!
Profile Views 2/5
By Apple iPhone Lover
Glitch in the profile views. Today it is showing me views from one month ago and two months ago.... what is going on?? Please fix this!!!
Randomize profile view 2/5
By Andy in SATX
Latest update has randomized profile views. Why would you do that, either a bug or a sad attempt to drive people to premium.
I would caution that it also might drive people to Indeed or Glassdoor.
By Integrity Review
The app is a inflexible fire hose of ads, upsells, click-bait and lame “classes” which all slow down and interrupt your conversations. Yeah, I spoke to their mobile team, and they admitted it’s ad impressions and daily click interactions that matter most. Premium is a total waste-even more nags and spam.
Did someone in your network get tricked into uploading your private address so they can spam and sell it as a feature to advertisers? Were you that person? You don’t use this app—it uses you. It makes me so sad.
Can’t view your connections’ Connection List 3/5
By STANDARD DEVIATION X2
There is an issue viewing the connection lists of the people I am connected to. I have turned off all filters but it keeps saying that search returned no results, as if I was searching rather than just simply viewing the connections list. Fix please.
Waste of time 1/5
By N/A 1234
Unfortunately this is an app that is designed to capture as much attention as possible, regardless of the impact on users quality of life.
One example is that it used to tell you who looked at your profile in an email. Now it is merely a baited link that requires you to login and waste more time in their app.
Same thing for emails. I have to login to read messages.
What do you think?
Can not access my account 1/5
Someone name Melissa Freya hijacked my account with my email address. I am not able to access.
Premium is Not worth it 2/5
Basic app is fine for just what it is. The Premium subscription is not even close to being worth their price point.
My experience with LinkedIn 1/5
I signed up years ago. It would take up to a half hour to get the jumbled words to work to open the site. I tried several times to get help from linkedin to solve this problem and got none. I tried to cancel and they wouldn’t. I’m retired now and still they send me notices and I still can’t open my account.
Can’t accept recruiter InMail 3/5
Recruiter InMail Accept button doesn’t work. Every time I tap on “Accept” button and navigate back to my inbox. Then tap on same recruiter InMail the “Accept” button is yet active.
Can it be addressed in timely manners?
App looks great, but 1/5
It has all the knobs and switches in the mobile app, they just all don’t work, or they don’t work well.
I decided to try replacing my laptop with a tablet for the summer. I discovered that the jobs profile page won’t update, and gives a useless error. After repeated attempts I had to fall back to the web site.
Apps with features that don’t work, or don’t work right, are frustrating. Especially when you trust that the updates you made have actually been made. It was not obvious, either, that the updates had not ‘taken’, even though no error was received at the end.
When features don’t work in an app it is an embarrassment to the company, a sign of poor software development practices, and insufficient testing.
Lack of UI organization 2/5
The organization of all the buttons and icons for profile setup are literally everywhere. It’s so difficult to Change your interest, and thing like education because there are different settings for each tab instead of how the app and your profile functions as a whole. I’d like to see that changed in future updates please.
LinkedIn is #1 in my opinion 5/5
By Chef Sully👩🍳
Top notch people making deep connections and friendships. Great people everywhere you turn. I have made lasting friendships here on LinkedIn and wouldn’t miss a day of sharing the love with my friends.
Made up notifications 2/5
LinkedIn gives me a notification a few moments after I close the app. When I open it, the notifications are for the most trivial things.
Free Robux free app
Not worth it 1/5
Who would pay $499 a year for LinkedIn premium? Not worth it. I decided to try premium but didn’t realize the cost. When they charged $65 to my credit card I thought this charge was for the entire year! I was wrong and they just charged me for another month, which I will definitely not use. Unbelievable.
Entry Level Filter 1/5
Why can’t the entry level filter actually filter out all the jobs that require experience? I am always perplexed when I scroll down to the requirements section and see 5-10 years of experience for a “entry level” labeled job.
THE FIND NEARBY TOOL 2/5
I can’t find the nearby tool on my iOS phone. I followed the direction but can’t see where the button is. Is there anyone who can help??
I like how the page where you can download it says 12 and up but the app is only for 16 and up
Delete messages for both parties 4/5
Sometimes mistakes are made in sending messages or sending wrong messages to high profile individuals can be annoying. One should be able to delete messages and shouldn’t appear on the other side. Please effect this on the next update. Thanks
Doesn’t follow modern app standards 3/5
By Adam (uncreative huh?)
I’m constantly confused as to why there aren’t more swipe gestures implemented in this app. I’d really like to be able to dismiss profile previews by swiping down. I also don’t want the connection request confirmation to show at the top of the screen with no way to dismiss. Navigation needs a lot of updating to conform to modern standards.
Go back to the older look. If I want Facebook, I’ll go to Facebook. I don’t want another FB wannabe!
App closes down while going through the post 1/5
App completely close down every time I scroll posts up or down.
Feed view 2/5
Is it that hard to organize the feed in chronological order? The main function of this is to find jobs and be able to network with people. It doesn’t help that just now I see a job fair or an opening from TWO WEEKS ago. I log in to the app every day, a few times a day. We also need a “see less” or mute/hide option for connectios that like/react/share to too many articles.

Has anyone gotten work thru linked in?
I thought i was reviewing LI but apparently this a job search subdivision with which i have no experience
I don’t know how to do this 1/5
By Hank CKT Moody
Hey guys! I don’t know how to do this! Can someone walk me through it!
Can't use the app. You login and you're bombarded with pop up suggestions. By the time you get past them you've ran out of time. Definitely not designed for the busy, working professional.
Crashes on iPhone XR 2/5
Great app in 45-60 second bursts between crashes.
Doesn’t load anything 1/5
By Jared R
For some reason, this app fails to load content 90% of the time, though it continues to produce notifications reliably. Where the app fails, the web version always works quickly and reliably.
I’m having lots of issues with this release on an iPhone 6 Plus running 12.3.1. Crashes every time you open messages or connections. Continues to occur even after reinstalling. Still one of my most frequently used apps. This just needs to be fixed.
Fake jobs 1/5
This app is FLOODED with fake jobs. You click to apply, and are immediately led to malware sites.
I’ve reported this DOZENS of times and their support ignores them. Go look for yourself, try applying for some of their jobs. LinkedIn’s fine with it because they get paid either way.
Nope. Still awful. 1/5
By Peter Maurer
LinkedIn is the worst social media platform ever created.
Let’s consider the simple process of signing on.
I see I have a message. I go to look at it. First, they’re always trying to claw their way into your contacts whenever you sign in. Then they recommend a dozen people I could connect with. (Thanks for suggesting my ex-girlfriend who I haven’t spoken with in 12 years. Creeps.) THEN I finally see the message, which is “sponsored” and I have absolutely zero interest in.
Then they prepare my “customized feed”. What if I just want something not from several weeks ago, I want to see what’s being posted today? Too bad, you get what they want to show you.
That’s just to start; that doesn’t include that it’s slow and cumbersome.
If you can avoid it, I suggest you do so. The only way to improve it seems to be to hope they get hacked by competent website designers who refurbish it, or that they shut it down for good.
App does not work 1/5
App will not open, every time I click to open it it just crashes. The latest update has made this terrible to even open.
Never bought but charged 1/5
I never clicked anything to allow the purchase of the premium app though I was charged $31.64 to my bank account.
Application Problem 1/5
By Umar Waqas
I would like to ask if anyone else is having problems while using linkedIn on iphone 7 plus? It’s hanging and not responding every time I am using this app. Developers please look into it please. I reinstalled app multiple times but its still having problems. I am having worst ever experience with this app. No action yet taken by team despite multiple escalations.
App is Crushing 2/5
This app is crushing on my 8+ please fix this issue.
App is infested with junk notification and promoted garbage adds....How do I turn off “jobs recommended for you” in the feed?
By Norman Maine
It’s too complicated to sign out of this app on the iPhone. I deleted the app because of this.
Uninstalled and reinstalled app, fixing the crash issue. Much improved. Looking forward to seeing the changes and improvements to come.
LinkedIn is crashing after the recent update!
After using LinkedIn and scrolling continuously it suddenly freezes and crashes !
Please fix this soon !
Free trial scam 1/5
Signed up for the 30 day free premium, I’m 20 days in trying to cancel and the app gives me an error message every time. It’s been 4 days and it won’t let me make changes. I tried doing it from a computer and it says that the purchase was made through an iOS device and needs to be cancelled on their.
Don’t use their free trials.
It has been a great experience! 2/5
The app works smoothly no issues at all, I’ll give 5 stars but now I was sent the free trial and chose the wrong one and cannot find where to send my concern or change it and also says “Something went wrong is not you is us please try again” please help!
Hidden posts pop back up all the dang time.
App crashes a couple times a day, usually after I’ve hidden a bunch of posts. When I reopen the app, everything I just hid is visible again.
Feed is overrun with sponsored posts.
The app is very useful for researching who works on a team I may be interviewing with, or gathering background info on an interviewer so that I can ask insightful questions.
Fix the notch 3/5
The search bar is behind the notch on the iPhone XS, and I presume the other variants as well. This needs to be fixed, given that the “notched” iPhone has been out for almost two years now.
Bring back the jobs app. 1/5
The LinkedIn Jobs app was better than what I get with this app. Bring back the jobs app. I’m not happy so I’m giving this app one star.
This app needs improvement anyway.
The functionality of any app is “convenience”, make it so I can conveniently access everything I would be able to in the browser!
