This would be cool but 3/5
This would be cool except its not working with dropbox or google drive to upload my resume for jobs and thats one of the most vital parts of application processing. Fix it please!
The linked in app is great it’s easy to use and manage however every time it open an external link such as applying to a job it crashes.
Hurts your career 1/5
By Integrity Review
Ads, up sells and clickbait make it harder to have rewarding connections. Yes, I spoke directly with their mobile team—super disappointing—they want ad interactions and monthly actives. Upload your address book and hurt your business connections. Click “like” and spam to your network, announcing you have nothing valuable to do. Notice inmail emails hide the message? Yup, you got it.
So annoying 2/5
I don’t like how this app forces users to update while in use. I’m in the middle of typing and the app will quit, then request an update, I can’t get back to my comment and loose my thought process. Also, cannot find whether you have mutual connections with someone easily anymore. That was one of the best parts of linked in.
Won’t Load 1/5
Nothing works. No pages load. Completely unusable.
Very poor 1/5
I can’t even set up an account, they’re is no customer support for help . I have tried numerous times to setup account if you time out it won’t accept your phone number , it keeps telling me to choose another number ?..? How many phone numbers do you think the average person has . I have complained on your site but to no avail, and have not been contacted . Very frustrated here .
Glad I read customer reviews, and I don’t need any help any longer, I WILL NOT SET UP AN ACCOUNT , thanks to all the reviews I read .. y’all have all long way to go before providing a good product to the public . And now I see why you have no contact info available , you would be inundated with to many customer complaints .
How do I discontinue this or unsubscribe ?
Constantly freezing 1/5
This app is constantly freezing. I have deleted and redownloaded it and it still doesn’t work. Please fix this app. I waste so much time trying to get it to work properly, and this is something I need to use for work.
Ridiculously Inefficient for a Virtual Social Media Company 1/5
For a Virtual Technology Company, the fact that finding a “Help” or “Contact Linkedin” contact information is virtually impossible, so I now have to download your App, just to have access to this contact App Review page, in hopes that LinkedIn “might” respond or view this post is simply Ridiculous and Inefficient! As has been my experience with LinkedIn from day one, which is why I rarely, and barely use LinkedIn, and attempt to avoid using it. All I have ever experienced was frustration after frustration on your website, and previously with your App. The way that LinkedIn has its website (and I presume App) set-up, is in such a manner as to discourage (to the point of driving Users to Insanity), at all costs a User actually contacting LinkedI n directly for any assistance.
Although you are a virtual technology (social media) related company, LinkedIn as a company is about as Anti-Social (aka do not contact us, there is no contact information), as they come. Which would likely be forgivable, except their Website/Service is extremely inefficient, and it is routinely IMPOSSIBLE, to submit, revise/alter information in/on/posted and/or within their website or app.
My major burning question, which I have yet to track anyone down to address and who could potentially assist me?
•• HOW DO I CHANGE the “Twitter” address in my profile?
Sounds simple right? Well, NO!, because the Twitter address currently reflects the Twitter Address of the company where I previously was employed.
A simple “Edit” You say?
Just go Under Your User Profile, Click on The Edit Your Details Information, You say?
Yeah, Riiight!, sounds easy enough, until you try it, and find out that the Twitter Field, along with the Twitter Name shown (of your previous employer) are BOTH GREYED OUT & INACCESSIBLE!!
Just contact LinkedIn Customer Service and Support, You say?
YEAH, great, let me know if You find any information on their website about how to contact them directly, and if you do find that information somewhere (Please let me know because I have yet to find it!!), and I can almost guarantee that search takes you longer than 20 very frustrating minutes!!
Unlike most technology based and customer focused websites these days, LinkedIn makes contacting them a struggle and an exercise in futility, I believe they expect and know, that you will eventually just give up! Where other CARING Companies and organizations either provide Users a “Contact Us” page listing their various contact email addresses, telephone numbers, physical mailing address, etc.., NOT SO for LinkedIn!
Other Websites/Services even occasionally provide Users a Website Contact Form to fill out and submit feedback, questions, etc...NOT SO for LinkedIn!
Other Websites/Services have links to Customer Support Forums, where App/Website Users can join a Community and maybe get help from other Website/Users who have face similar issues....NOT SO for LinkedIn!
Other Websites/Services who are strongly Customer Focused, even have integrated F.A.Q Knowledge bases that provide general help for common problems...NOT SO for LINKEDIN!!
There are even Websites/Service Providers who have integrated Customer Support Service, with Ticket Creation & Submission, that is trackable from creation to resolution, with the aim of providing Users a method to submit help requests and ensure that those requests are answered and resolved in a timely manner....NOT SO LINKEDIN!!
If you are noticing a reoccurring pattern, then you would be correct. As I stated, LinkedIn has done an ironically efficient job of making themselves and any contact with their company for assistance, a virtually impossible task!
Having said that, what is LINKEDIN good for?
•Maintaining a Public Business Profile
• Connecting You with targeted business contacts and/or networking leads
• Job Searching
• Keeping you updated on your Connections and Contacts employment status and location.
== Lastly, Heaven forbid You enter any information incorrectly, or that you run into some other bizarre and yet, completely common issue. (Like perhaps wanting to change some information you entered back several years ago from when you initially created your account, several LinkedIn website revisions ago! Because, if so, like me, you may find yourself unendingly FRUSTRATED by LINKEDIN’s lack of Customer Service availability!!
There was a point in time, where I believe that I may have made an optional choice about my profile or profile type, when LinkedIn was going through one of its revisions, which may have been the root of this ridiculous issue, that never should have become an issue; however, I do not know if my presumption is correct or not, because I can’t seem to communicate with anyone at LinkedIn to get help with, review, investigate or assist me with my problem (website information error!!)
Honestly, about 2-3 LinkedIn website revisions ago, they did have some LinkedIn contact information listed, but it ended up being to a non-native english speaking call center, that preferred contact through email only, and who had no clue about LinkedIn’s product/website nor even how to fix any User issues, and it was after that iteration of Epic Customer Service Failure, that LinkedIn seemed to proverbially, simply pull the ladders out of the water, and leave their Website/App Users a float in the sea, with no life preservers or assistance.
PLEASE, PRETTY PLEASE, I am literally begging you, Please prove me WRONG! and HELP ME, FINALLY to correct the (seemingly simple) Error in my Profile!!
Bad horrible 1/5
Constantly crashes, frozen screen, kicks you off page, do not recommend!
Keeps crashing 1/5
Opens, loads up a bit then crashes
Stop with the notifications! 1/5
Would you PLEASE stop giving me badge notifications for potential connections... when NO ONE has sent me a connection request. It happened like 8 times yesterday!
Keep it up and you'll be completely muted.
Can't access. 1/5
I'm stuck trying to king in for the first time. Keeps returning me to the Captcha screen.
Sort feed? 3/5
The news feed is wasted by the inability to sort by new or recent. I don’t want to see two week old updates. That defeats the purpose of being connected.
Not for me 1/5
By Cee. J
I have no interest in making business connections. The only connection that could have a possible interest for me, is a way to publish some of my writting. Short stories, poems, essays, and the novel i'm working on. Linkadin was not a good choice. I hav'nt paid any attention to it, nor will I.
Stop with the excessive notifications 1/5
Update: I can’t send the screenshots to you with the glitch through this app. I’ve emailed you through the actual desktop site with this problem, asking for an email address to show you this issue. Nothing has changed and no one has contacted me. App will be deleted.
I turned off all notifications because I was getting too many. I was tired of it. Now, I get a notification that I have no notifications set up. That’s. The. Point. Stop with this ridiculous amount of notifications. Fix it, otherwise, I’m deleting the app altogether.
Update again: Since I just got another response from LinkedIn about this problem, here’s the update: I can’t send you a screenshot, see point above. The app has been deleted off my phone for months now.
Needs Dynamic Type 4/5
LinkedIn is a useful tool, but I have one big ongoing complaint: the app doesn’t use dynamic type. Overall, the type is small which make the app very difficult to use for those who are visually impaired or have seen their vision diminish due to age. I would use LinkedIn much more often if it was easier to read.
The feed in this app is garbage 1/5
Just utter garbage. On desktop, at least I have the option to see most recent. Here, no option. You’re stuck with a feed that shows old junk that nobody cares about, doesn’t show post dates to see how old stuff is, etc, etc. Just utter fricken garbage.
So I have been trying to complete an application on the app for 30 minuets now because the screen freezes and I have to close the app then search the job again and start the process again and again. Very frustrating.
Network issues 1/5
Hangs forever Updating when opened about 20% of the time. Started not too long ago. Really thought they’d find and fix by now.
Linked in on iPhone X 1/5
The screen size bigger than the size of iPhone X screen size, you can't use search button.
Long security questions 3/5
By Nicole Mr
Please take out the picture security questions it takes forever and did all that just for it to tell me I had the wrong email. Tell me from the start!
Had an account since 2010... clicked on the app today everything’s gone profile business opportunities connections emails job prospects and opportunities
Only way to contact LinkedIn requires having an account
Feel like wasted years of development of an extensive network to have it evaporated “poof” into cyberspace
If anyone else has had this experience I would like to know and see if there is anything else to try
Feedback from this version 5/5
It closes when i open my messages
Annoying notifications 2/5
Even though I only have notifications for messages turned on, I get all sorts of notifications, I don't care who's birthday it is or work anniversaries!
Privacy concerns 1/5
The other day LinkedIn started promoting me to read people’s profile that I was about to have meetings with. When and how did LinkedIn start reading my calendar?
I not ok with sharing my calendar with LinkedIn with out granting permission. Nor could I find any way deny that permission short of uninstalling.
This was a very disturbing experience. With the worlds new focus on privacy, this just shouldn’t happen.
Sorry, but I’ve uninstalled and won’t reinstall until I have more control over my information.
Badge notifications need fixing 1/5
You can’t stop badge notifications. I tried adjusting the push notification settings so many times, which in fairness seemed to affect the push notifications, but the badge number still appears. I don’t care that someone I met once at a conference shared a post!
Feedback: One star for visibility 1/5
Hello LinkedIn dev team,
I used to not use LinkedIn as much as I do now. Thanks to you for providing us with so many new features that are being added. This is how a real social network should have always been.
The reason for 1 star is:
I am an ardent follower of the daily rundowns. But, I wouldn’t read all the content in a single go. Instead, I take multiple turns throughout the day to read all of it. Here’s the problem.
When I open LinkedIn and say, read two paragraphs and went on to read an email and then do my chores and then come back to LinkedIn after, say, an hour, to pick up where I left off. This is where LinkedIn redirects me to its home page. No, I didn’t close the app, it’s running in the background. I would love to continue with the content where I left it off earlier.
I have seen no other app does this except LinkedIn.
TL;DR I want LinkedIn to show me the content where I left off earlier than always redirecting me to homepage.
THIS IS THE WORST APP OUT HERE EVER. HOW DOES IT EVEN HAVE ONE STAR LET ALONE 4 ITS COMPLETE BS YOU CANT CHANGE ANYTHING TO YOUR ACCOUNT
Won't work properly in my iPhone 1/5
Total piece of crap.
I was reading an article. I switched over to an audio app to pause it. Came immediately back to LinkedIn and the app threw me back to a refreshed news feed and I can’t even find the article I was reading. Who thought this was a good idea?
Opioid deaths 3/5

Due to gov supplying crapp for treatment!!
Forced updates 1/5
Forced updates deserve less than one star
LinkedIn Customer Support Not Good 2/5
I’m a long-time LinkedIn user and evangelist but costumer support seems to be slipping. You can download your connections and get all the information you need to plan regional meetings except City and State. If you check profiles to get that information and add it to the downloaded spreadsheet, they restrict your account for the “security of your connections.” I can download their names, employer names, employment history, education history, etc., so I’m not sure how city and state contributes to security risk. Customer service rep didn’t seem to know city and state aren’t in the download, didn’t seem to care, and didn’t have the forethought to give that suggestion to the product development team. Kinda lame for a business app.
Don’t join premium 1/5
Do join the premium. Very expensive, and you won’t be able to stop in the middle of your monthly subscription and get the refund.
Visual format bug, overall satisfactory 5/5
The personal profile was displaying starting slightly further than the edge of the screen, cutting into the profile pic and wallpaper.
Btw, personalized homepages are informative of brand, which is important for me to recognize in people I meet, please consider. Thanks
Charges continued after I canceled 1/5
By unforgiveable app
LinkedIn is the absolute worst. I did premium for a month for free, cancel the subscription and they continued to charge me. I didn’t notice for a couple a months and they are refusing to refund my money saying they have no record of cancellation. Super convenient for them! Don’t be fooled they will continue to charge your card after the cancellation!
Wow they responded trying to a) blame apple or b) send a completely useless link that does not address anything. Nor is there any place on the website to speak with a person on the phone!
I would give negative 5 stars if I could!
Thanks for a bunch of unauthorized charges and no way to resolve them! Great buisness plan. And your customer service is the ABSOLUTE worst!
Going down 1/5
Last version of application makes me extremely sad. Are you really believe we are idiots? I may reading an article and get distracted for a few seconds to answer sms message from my friend and return back to linkedin application and booms, all your news feed is reloaded without possibility to finish reading? I stoped using facebook exactly because this stupid behavior. Now is it a time to stop using linkedin and move somewhere else? Your UX designers should be punished and don’t receive yearly bonus.
Every time I am applying to a job the whole app freezes and closes out mid application and I have to restart and then it just does it again
Access off WiFi? Not a thing. 2/5
I get messages and connections or want to look up people... but there is no connection or errors off WiFi. Please fix your app.
Unable to notify developers 1/5
The first thing is, I am unclear how to report a problem. Perhaps you are so large that you see no need.? Perhaps you feel: If you do not like this application, then leave. That’s really to bad.
LinkedIn has been hanging every since your last update. Usually I am typing a comment when the application hangs. When it does manage to come back to life, everything is gone forcing me to re-enter from the beginning. This is unfortunate and a real pain. Sometimes, and depending how long my response is, I just say screw it. It is not worth my time.
Also, attachments are a hit or miss. It’s really discouraging to go back and realize the attachment you added did not go.
I would appreciate if you fix this, even if you have to back off your code. If not you will be loosing a Premium User.
The preview of people you may know doesn’t work. It shows only a black screen.
Fix it please. It happens on both my iPhone 6 and iPhone XS MAX.
App doesn’t respect notification settings 1/5
By Ben Schiendelman
In-app, I set my notifications to *only* messages and invites.
The next day: notification; “you appeared in 46 searches!”
I checked to be sure, and my settings were as I left them. Only messages and invites.
This app is so frustrating to use. When you try to post an update, it says “uploading” for about 15 min, kills you phone battery, then says “posting failed”. It usually takes me about an hour and half of my battery life to get a post up.
Lacks critical functions 3/5
I operate a business page and wish to contribute to group pages. Unfortunately, there is NO way to work in either of these places through the app. I hate that I can’t create content on my business page from my mobile devices, iPhone or iPad. Both of which I use regularly for my company content through other social networks. Please make company page and group contribution possible on mobile.
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 live to see the day when LinkedIn fails and an alternative business networking app is created. Burn in hades LI!

Networking Essential 5/5
By DJ Nekst
This app has jump started my networking path in the Corporate Banking Industry in Chicago and I have nothing but good words for this social network. It simplifies job searching as well as making networking a breeze!
