Too expensive & political 1/5
I’ve applied to over 30 jobs. 1 phone call & 1 in person interview. The people that are hired have less education than me & the same or most of the time less experience in my field. I’m only in my 30s & this hasn’t helped me one bit. Plus $95 for an annual subscription? I’m barely making ends meet now. Can’t find a job in my industry with a 100 mile radius! Ridiculous! Plus LinkedIn (website) is not compatible (properly) with safari on the Mac and the iPhone. Runs down battery life terribly, extreme high cpu usage. Extremely disappointing.

Ads, upsells, click-bait and lame “classes” all slow down and interrupt your conversations. Oh 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 ads, 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?
Search function does work on iPhone Xs 2/5
The search bar in the app is under the ear speaker and cameras on the iPhone Xs so you can’t type or even access via touch rendering the app useless.
Data never displays. Oops it’s not you it’s us. 1/5
I always get a message that someone has invited me to connect or sent me a message.
However I’m always getting an error that it can’t retrieve data.
Unappealing New UX 1/5
It looked better with the profile picture in the center. It used to look more centered and professional, but now it just looks like it’s trying to be like Facebook..? It’s very unappealing as a professional networking app. It doesn’t look symmetrical, and it puts more emphasis on the cover picture. It just looks off with the company name below the profile picture and the school name beside it while all being left-aligned. Most people don’t have cover pictures, so I don’t understand why even bother making the focus on that? It makes me not want to use it. I wish I didn’t update.
Awesome BUT 2/5
My issue is that it’s not optimized for iPhone X, xr, xs, xs max the wya the top of Iphone is you can’t click the search tab nor the options tab or any of the info please fix!!!!!
Notifications really 2/5
Bundle them, and raise the threshold for what notification worthy, I don’t need to open the app worried I have a message to see someone viewed my page
“Experience” is Gone 1/5
My work experience no longer shows on the app. Can still see on the website.
Popular but not very substantial. Mostly ads. “This post will no longer show up in your feed” is a lie. Useful for getting background info about interviewers during a job hunt.
Why would you block my profile without any explanation! I provided all the information and ID to get it back as I’ll be looking for jobs soon. Please fix this issue!!! Samer S Tallauze
Capp is not iPhone XR compatible 1/5
I just started using LinkedIn and was excited to find that they had an official iOS app, however when I open the app on my iPhone XR, it is not formatted right and up at the top where my speaker is is where the dashboard buttons are and my time and network status icon overlay the other function buttons making this app useless unless you have an iPhone 8 or previous model. PLEASE UPDATE!!!
App problems 1/5
By peter 123455
This app has been down and not working for several days.
DO NOT SIGN UP FOR THE PREMIUM TRIAL 1/5
Canceled out 30 day trial on day 30, and was charged $617 for a full year! When I tried to get a hold of some one at LinkedIn, I got a message saying that because their case volume was so high they weren’t accepting calls. Avoid this company!
Bug issue 4/5
By Udesii Baar'ur
With the recent update there seems to be a bug when updating/viewing owners profile. When you click on view more education or skills or try to edit education and/or skills it keeps pulling up work history for review/update. Notice this issue on multiple devices. Please fix this issue.
Update fails 1/5
App insists on update...I did update. But it is not recognizing it; still pops up to update and can't go any further. Now app is useless!
Joyce Hojanacki 5/5
Congratulations on your 11 years at Walden.
App is not loading any info 1/5
Mobile app has been garbage since I downloaded it last week. I can access everything on my desktop but not the mobile app.
“Try again” haha funny
Great service, WAY to many notifications 2/5
The app/service is great but the recent update of push notifications for live interviews is beyond annoying, getting many of them a day. I used to love LinkedIn notifications, now they're turned off so much for keeping your users active.
Best wishes in your deserved nomination
Fake job postings !!! 1/5
If you’re actively looking for a job don’t ever use this app, it’s full of fake companies that NO ONE has ever heard of , you would think linkedin would have reputable job postings but I guess the founder and developers of this app already have their money so why would they care about actually helping others. SHAME ON YOU LINKEDIN what a disgrace. All these fake companies that you can’t even find on glassdoor or anywhere else. You would think with all this technology that you could be able to filter out the fake companies but I guess your “developers” aren’t that smart anyways. What a joke of an app.
Does not send reset password email 1/5
I’ve tried so many times already and have checked my spam, I haven’t gotten anything please fix!
Add title when share 1/5
By Hop on slop
How hard is it for you to enable the title of the post being shared by email to populate the email subject or body. This is some bad user experience and Linked is a decade behind other platform in this.
While I'm here, why the hell cant we save some articles to read later.
What the hell could be the reason behind these stupid choices.
Started strong - fading with age 3/5
The latest mobile version only shows jobs, promoted ads and maybe one post of merit from a colleague. It has succeeded in detaching me further from LinkedIn than ever. Investors beware -this model means less eyeballs not more.
Fraudulent charge 1/5
By Official 2345
It has been impossible for me to contest a charge of 59.99 per month which has been charged to me via iTunes for a premium LinkedIn membership I do not have anymore and do no longer benefit from. I have contested it with Apple and requested a refund without success. It is nearly impossible. I have also written to LinkedIn. I have been charged several months by error. There does not seem to be any person reviewing this. I am considering cancelling my Apple account all in all. Apple makes it uncontrollable in violation of consumer rights.
Bug report in version 9.1.137 5/5
I got a connection notification, when i opened the app i see one badge in connection tab but I can’t see any thing, every time when i open the app see badge number in launcher and connection tab
Hoping to change this rating 1/5
I hate giving 1 star rates but there’s no “give feedback to app developers” feature on this so this is the only way. I like LinkedIn, I use it to stay active in my career, etc. but this app can never save edits I make to my profile, sometimes never lets me log in, almost always says “something went wrong” on whatever I click, etc. Not sure why this occurs, my internet is speedy and every other app works perfect, it’s just this app. Hoping to change my rating if this can be resolved!! Thanks
Start over 1/5
By WM Houston
A horrible mobile app. It would be wise to simply delete all the code and start from scratch. Job search is like something from the 1980s.
Terrible app to navigate!! 1/5
Could not reach home page!! Menu not shown
Contact suggestions button crashes app 3/5
Not really a review but thought I’d bring this to the attention of the developers. On 12.3.1 currently.
I always get updated emails about new messages and they always fail on the app to open. “Error” message loads and the message never shows. Only works well on the computer.
The absolute worst networking app... 1/5
LinkedIn is the absolute worst, corrupt, and non user friendly social app out there. There are too many reasons to even begin mentioning all of them. Just to name one: if a user wants to unfriend or leave a group, LinkedIn intentionally makes it impossible to do so on the mobile app.
I’m also still dealing with a “glitch” that the app had a few years ago. Without giving any permission to access my iPhone’s contacts, LinkedIn automatically dumped every one of my LinkedIn contacts into my iPhone’s contacts. Well over 500 contacts were combined with my personal contacts. Not a big deal you say? Well those contacts birthdays were then automatically also added to iPhone’s calendar. Everyday I would have at least a couple of these birthdays showing. For well over a year I was manually removing these contacts one name at a time. LinkedIn admitted to the error. Thanks that did nothing to help. So at this point I have zero trust in the integrity, honesty, or reliability of LinkedIn.
Something went wrong??? 1/5
By ms K.I.A
I’ve used this app with no issues until recently. Now when I log in, it asks for my password, and it doesn’t let me in. I keep receiving the “something went wrong” response. Please fix! Thanks
Missing Basic iOS 9 Functionality 2/5
The iPad version of this app still does not include split screen viewing, meaning that sharing content is slower and more complicated than if I could view a webpage next to the app while I write a post about it.
My LinkedIn just crushed 4/5
My LinkedIn started crushing since 16th June. Please have it fixed
Notifications bug in 9.13.1570 3/5
Historically has been a great and stable client application. 9.13.1570 I am getting constant iOS notifications that seemed to be linked to background pushes for the “discover connections” page? Seems like a bug. Can you fix it please?
App crashing on launch after update 1/5
Fix the update crash
No Help 1/5
This a app just goes around in circles can’t get past setup and you can’t sent a request for help just read pre- prepared help info very disappointed. Will be deleting this App. Who has time for this.
Hate this app 1/5
My main problem is when I want to post a long comment on any post the app crash!
And the design! It’s just horrible and hideous.
Sales pitch rather than job post 1/5
How disappointing to find out that a job posting was actually a sales pitch! I hope LinkedIn was unaware of this and does not find it ok.
I Personally wish I’d never tried their “free” 30 trial. I immediately saw LinkedIn Premium was not beneficial to me and tried to can right away, this began a month plus ordeal with daily chats with Apple daily emails with LinkedIn and then finally a few calls with iTunes and even though Apple tells me it’s cancelled, (I believe Apple/iTunes), June 14th was first day that 59.99 monthly fee would be charged, I blocked my card and have not been billed and finally yesterday Linked sends me email telling me, “I can see it’s cancelled now Premium will remain on your profile for 15 days...” That LinkedIn put me through this is so very unfair
Absolutely awful app 1/5
By Big black chef
I tried signing in through Google, It kept asking me to verify that i’m “not a robot” and when I answered the security questions it still wouldn’t let me in so it gave me the option to have them txt my phone with a verification code I PUT IN THE CODE THEY GIVE ME AND THEY STILL DON’T LET ME ACCESS THE APP!!!!! If I can’t even get into this dumb app using my own google account I cringe to think what else they have jacked up i’m not giving this app a second chance you shouldn’t even give it a first.... indeed is starting to look pretty good right now
Used to be good. But it’s now sadly hot trash. 1/5
I’ve been a LinkedIn user since it’s inception. I’ve been a premium subscriber for 6-7 months. Sadly in my line of work it’s a necessary networking tool but if it wasn’t I’d get off this garbage train today.
In the beginning it made sense. It was limited in scope and perfect for its purpose, it was a great (perhaps the only) professional networking site. I’m not a social media person and I only tolerated LinkedIn because while it was social media in the strict sense it didn’t engage in the soul destroying stupidity of other social media (FB IG etc). It was an online repository of resumes and professional profiles, full stop.
Now it has fallen into the trap of mission creep. It does a lot of stuff no one needs and likely only recruiter and HR “professionals” care about. It crushes you with insipid sponsored content that’s all offensively low value inspiration (don’t give up!!!), and an offensive amount of notifications linked to nothing of value. I was pinged today by Linkedin to tell me that I had 13 “interesting views” of my profile. Like the dope I am I looked, intrigued “hmm. what’s an interesting view”. Well it was more garbage. Sliced and plated in new ways. It told me that the 13 interesting views were from “senior leaders” in my field. None of them. Not one was a “senior leader” most are not even mid level followers. Some of them have fancy titles (fooling LinkedIn’s Stone Age algos I presume) but really. It was a minute waisted and I’m dumber for it. I realize I’ve taken longer to write this than the minute. But I’m hoping someone reads it. And thinks. Maybe we don’t need to be Facebook in a suit. Maybe we should go back to doing something useful. I won’t be holding my breath.
Selling you out what a sham 1/5
No job leads just a place to target market you. What a waste!
They will steal your money 1/5
I was prompted to try the premium subscription for free for a month which I did. I did not give them any of my financial information. I figured that if I liked the services provided by the premium then I would pay to start using it. There were no benefits to the premium and it didn’t help me at all in my career search. Somehow they accessed my bank information and took their ridiculous amount out. When I tried to get a refund they gave me the run around for hours before they all around denied my refund. Awful customer service. Wouldn’t recommend to anyone.
Great for people who are job hunting and for people to connect to local and worldwide businesses!!!
Pretty Solid App 4/5
I genuinely like this app better than the website. The app does pester you with pop-ups some times, but it runs smoothly.
Find Nearby is gone 3/5
With the latest upgrade this option had suddenly disappeared. Extremely frustrating as that was one of the app's best features for connecting with people at conferences. Update your support materials to reflect this change.
Horrible Interface 1/5
By kintobaR Rabotnik
I swear this site has provided me with so much stress just trying to set it up. I didn’t dropped out of college and I left my job but they are both in my interests and I cannot change them. Whenever I open the app it tells me to finish updating my profile but I don’t have anymore information to add. There’s no way to say no. When I tried to leave things blank because they don’t apply to me I couldn’t. I got a notice that I had shown up in a search but when I opened the notification I was taken to a page within the app that did not work without a laptop. Why would this happen on the mobile app? It makes no sense. I’ve made all the connections I want to for now but every time I open the app I have to skip through the page to make connections with random people I don’t know. This app and the website are infuriating to attempt to use. I use all kinds of other social media that work at least decently. This platform is by far the most angering to use. Maybe the team is overworked or has no time to fix these issues, but they are too glaring and long lasting to still be around.
Alerts even after disabling them 1/5
STOP SENDING ME REPEATED “NEW YORK TIMES IS LIVE” ALERTS! You are a career networking app, stay in your lane!!
