Missing What’s New info 4/5
One thing that is missing in the What’s New metadata section, is the text for what’s new with each new version. You can thank users for their support, but you should also tell them what’s new with the new version.
Improvement needed 1/5
By Maria lynn kostas
LinkedIn is a great tool however I have been hacked over three times in the last 2 1/2 years. I have stoped using the app then stopped logging in altogether.
My Pw was changed by someone and I was locked out of my account for an entire week.
That lead to the hacker gaining access to my other social media accounts.
Hurts your career 1/5
By Integrity Review
Misleads users into spamming his/her professional connections with every “like” hurting his/her career. Pushes Lynda classes that are so low effort—people hurt their job chances by putting it on their resume. Crams a massive quantity of clickbait, ads and up-sells. Eventually tricks every user into damaging his/her reputation by accidentally uploading their entire address book.
LinkedIn: Your empty marketing reply is just the unwelcome diversion I predicted: copy and pasted dismissal as “feedback”

Hangs iOS exiting causing crash iPhone X 1/5
Read the title.
March 9 Update glitches 2/5
Loved this app until the most recent update on March 9, and lost the ability to post articles from other sources...
Very buggy 2/5
By Shane Henderson
App regularly freezes up my entire phone, crashes and is nearly impossible to upload photos to. When it does actually stay open long enough to upload a photo, it is either stuck loading the post or posts the photo 2 or 3 additional times. I think it has to do with the large size of photos on the iPhone and not compressing the images like Facebook does...but I’m not a programmer so I don’t know.
Latest update broke the share sheet widget 1/5
Since the latest update, the iOS 11 LinkedIn share-sheet widget no longer works. When open the share sheet in another app and click on the LinkedIn sharing widget, nothing happens. This is a BIG deal--it makes it impossible to share things to LinkedIn from EVERYWHERE except in the Linkedin app itself.
Opt out 1/5
I want out haven’t even use you.
Disrespectful trash 1/5
Nearly every time I open this app, I regret it. This time, it interrupted me in the middle of trying to type in a name into the search box with several screens trying to get me to give them more information or hand over my contacts. Whoever built this has no respect for their users.
App always crashing 2/5
When I go into the app most of the time it will freeze or just crash. When I check notifications it will also freeze and often times after I have checked them it will still show that I have unseen notifications. Also, after a recent post there has been a bar at the top that shows posting even though I posted it more than two weeks ago.
Just two features I would like to see 3/5
All in all is a fair app.
Two things that should be changed is the way of erasing/blocking people (it is really necessary to enter to someone account to deactivate oneself from there?)...kind of duh~
Second, not everyone want/can apply for a job in US, a country filter will be desirable (particularly I not interested to see jobs from that country)
Clunky, buggy and slow! 3/5
Great content, the job search is clunky, buggy and slow.
Wanna See Groups 4/5
By Nikki Thompson
I’d give this app 5 stars if I could find my groups. Is it hidden, a part of premium, or what??????
Privacy Backward 1/5
I used to be a big advocate for this app. Now It appears LinkedIn has gone privacy backward. The product has always had issues for me. For example the “anonymize your profile” so others can’t see you viewed them does not work. The moment I view someone they view me back.
I was surprised the last iphone update pushed out a status to show my connections when I am online, as I explicitly had this feature off.
Even creepier, my status was disabled for recruiting opportunities and yet I receive strange emails from Indian led staff aug firms that clearly are receiving my location information. For example, travelled to Orlando for business last week and then receive a recruiting email in Orlando. SUPER CREEPY!! Who has access to the open profile and location information? Spammers...
Eliminating LinkedIn is hard these days but I uninstall it pretty regularly from my phone and find my way back. At some point, enough will be enough.
Great Networking tool 5/5
Have used this for keeping in touch w colleagues and people within the Southlake Focus Group. Also have received calls & contacts from Recruiters and being over 50 and having periods of unemployment in my history this is as real a help as it gets.
App freezes as soon as it open on iphone x 1/5
By Syed Amad Wajid
It was working fine on my iphone 7 plus
But on iphone x app keep freezing please fix it as soon as i open the app touch to scroll down it just freeze please fix it
I like 5/5
By Familia Rios Ruiz
Es una de las paginas que te informa en el instante cuando están las disponibles las aplicaciones
Can’t sign in! Please fix 1/5
Keep getting “something went wrong”
The Definitive Professional Networking App 4/5
By David Bernat
What can I say that hasn’t already been said? This is THE app for serious professionals to connect and network with.
Account restricted for viewing articles 1/5
I made an account and was permanently restricted less than 2 days later just for using it. LinkedIn is a joke. It’s fading. It’s not worth your time.
BEWARE 90 day free trial 1/5
By Tank Simpson
If you purchase through the app (which they suggest), it auto renews in 30 days and there is no recourse. GOTCHA SUCKER!!
Job search function is awful 1/5
Job search always turn up nothing when selected “part time”, while if I did the same thing on my computer it would actually return results.
Thank you but manage 4/5
I realy liked your app and helped me a lot but guys please think about us we lose a lot of data just to do the update you doing every week it doesn't make sense. Seems like ever time some one join linkin you sent an update ...
Posting photos 2/5
By Slide Rail Master
Recently I’ve not been able to post any photos of projects. It just keeps uploading and then says it’s failed. I’ve tried about 8 times with no luck. Anyone else having this issue?
Little things kill the experience 2/5
The app itself works fine; it’s several other things that bother me enough to give it 2 stars.
I’ve never been a fan, and specifically make a point to quickly skip over anything that auto-plays. My time is worth more than being distracted by some video that I didn’t want to see in the first place.
Pop-up banner ads
The most recent update apparently has banner ads that pop up at the bottom of the screen blocking portions of the news feed. I’m fine with in-line ads, but pop-ups are just annoying.
Private message ads
When I see a notification in my messages, I no longer know if it’s someone legitimately trying to contact me, or if it’s a paid ad that I have to specifically go out of my way to ignore. Again, my time is worth more to me than that.
Maybe they’re just trying some of these out, and are open to user feedback. But if this stays around for too long, I think I’ll delete the app, and substantially lower my use of LinkedIn.
Missing Content 4/5
Career interest on desktop is populated with the information I put in. On the app, everything is empty.
Impossible to post from the app 1/5
It’s nearly impossible to post from the App during peak times. I’ve had several posts fail repeatedly. I work in Communications & Outreach & need to provide updates in a timely manner. The app in previous versions worked great. Now I’m forced to wait until I get back to a computer to update. It’s counterproductive & I’ll probably delete the app if simple functionality cannot be restored.
Also would help if you could manage company pages from the app. Seeing as this is a business based platform it would make sense to be able to do that on the app rather than wrestle with the abysmal way it’s laid out on the mobile browser.
I’ll leave the one star rating until this is resolved.
Expanding my reach 4/5
Every time I finish reading an article off of my feed I have to hit the “X” in the top left corner of the screen. Can you please integrate a left screen swipe so I don’t have to hit the tiny x? I usually miss the x two or three times before I get it right. I also loathe having to scroll back up a little bit to make the x reappear. Is it just me or am I doing it wrong?
App won’t log in. 1/5
This app is useless now. It logged me out with the update and won’t accept login credentials now. My login works in the web version. Just not the app.
Issues issues issues 1/5
By Noah Brett
The app has been having issues off and on fire a year. First i would get hundreds of emails from old dead groups with no way to unsubscribe. Talked to their help desk and they said I had to search and find each group and block it.
Now every other time i log in it says it can't load feed, no profile, messages won't send or load.
For a company based solely on an app, you guys aren't working very hard on keeping it functional.
Ruined a decent app 2/5
3/7 Took 6 months but saved articles are FINALLY back could not previously retrieve via the app or website despite devs saying they were there. Seems it was a an UI issue they finally resolved, thanks! Unfortunately, now I can no longer edit my activity all likes, comments etc show up on my feed. I prefer not to spam my connections and limit to specific, relevant activity. Hoping the next iteration resolves this...
Also be sure and check your privacy settings they added a new feature to collect your data for research if you do not want to participate you need to manually opt out.
9/15 update all the below still exists except now profile is missing entire interface for profile and article views and search appearances. There is no value left to this app.
I lost all of my saved articles, enough said. Everything else feels irrelevant after this loss but it seemed I had more "notification alerts" than actual notifications received essentially alerting on nothing or invisible items. Then again saved articles disappeared...is this a magic trick? :(
Still feel the same about the below items which have not improved over time...
I am not sure it could get any worse. Then again I thought the last update was terrible this latest update proves it can. Why change the order of the icons and their functionality at the bottom? Newsfeed was awful in last update now it doesn't fit the screen right on the 6. The previous update was ridiculous why does every app feel the need to turn into social media with a newsfeed and timeline. New interface is clunky at best. No area to view and change your privacy settings. Not a fan at all.
App Fine, Incessant Requests for Updates 3/5
The app is fine - works as expected. The burden is having to go through approx 7 pages of profile update requests, suggestions to follow, and phone/ email access permissions to keep pushing me forward every time I open it reminds me of a nagging loved one or life coach.
However, on-demand profile rating and improvement walk-through is an asset for those active in their business scene.
Far inferior functionality than desktop site 1/5
The app is adequate for the simple stuff like accepting connections, messaging and newsfeed, but beyond that you should stick with the desktop website. Job searches lack filters and ordering, it’s not possible to perform people searches with any useful criteria such as filtering by company, and the increased real estate of the app on tablets is woefully under utilized. Hope this app gets some attention soon. UPDATE: In response to the developer response, I’ve mentioned several ways to improve this here. Take this feedback from here don’t make me write it again on your own platform. Rude.
YouTube videos have no sound 3/5
By Bruce Hobbs
Update February 16, 2018: When someone links to a YouTube video, the video plays but there is no sound. You have to open the YouTube app and play it there.
Update March 6, 2018: The news Feed I get on this app is totally different from the news feed in a browser. Some posts are in common, but most are unique to one feed or the other. I have no idea why this is happening.
Update November 6, 2017: I check and I have a Notification that someone has commented on a post I’m following. If I tap on the new comment, half the time I’m taken to the comment and half of the time I’m taken to the post and have to scroll to try to find the comment. (As I pointed out earlier, this is hard to do when there are 970 comments.) Three stars today.
Instead of tapping to edit or copy a comment, I have to touch and hold to be able to edit or copy. I do like being able to edit comments.
I also don’t like the "...see more" tag at the end of many posts. You can't tell if you're going to get more text or if it's going to take you off to a web site. Most of the time, I don't want to go to a web site.
Great Platform 3/5
It’s my primary social platform because it’s straightforward and simpler for good information compared to Facebook.
Kindly bring back the like button for work Anniversaries and a way to mark all new notifications as read to clear the unread flag.
There is no button or option to save changes after I edit my profile smh
Useless App, use the website 1/5
I will only use the web hosted version from now on. With the app version, I cannot search at all, NO jobs, people or companies.
Unsaving items needs fixing 3/5
In general the app works well for me, except for unsaving items. The three little dots you’re supposed to tap to bring up the unsave option are too small, so I often end up repeatedly re-opening the article I just read. And more times than not, when I finally do get to the unsave option, it doesn’t actually unsave the article, so I end up having to select unsave multiple times. It’s a big waste of time and really frustrating to start reading an article only to realize I’ve already read it.
Unable To Save Jobs 1/5
I like the desktop version but the mobile application has a few glitches.
My primary concern is not being able to “save” jobs that I’m interested in. For the past month, I’ve been getting the error message: “Something went wrong. Try again.”
Now, when I’m searching for jobs on my phone, I have to email the page to myself so that I have a record of the job and can apply later from my desktop.
I’ve emailed LinkedIn several times about this issue and never received a response.
Lack of testing on iPhone X 2/5
By Mitchell Pash
Closing a detail modal doesn’t account for the back button that is positioned on the top left of the screen by iOS. Rookie mistake.
Please fix 1/5
The current release of the LinkedIn app on iOS fails to load and needs to be FIXED!
Half baked release 4/5
Updated version logs me out constantly. Wait for next update. This one isn't ready.
Update: the problems were resolved. I use the app daily now.
Unstable and crashing 1/5
By Buffet Man
Latest version is not stable on older iPhones. Can't get through an article without it shutting down several times. No other apps open!
Potential is there 2/5
The potential for LinkedIn is there but more development of the site needs to be done. Trying to upload even just one picture, it can take over 5-10 Minutes. That’s unacceptable given that this is 2017. It shouldn’t take that long to upload and share a picture within the app. It causes me to abandon my posts and exit the program almost every time.
Project Updates won’t save Edits 1/5
I’ve tried unsuccessfully to save any edits I make to my projects. I’m trying to put end dates on projects that have completed and it won’t apply them. Its keeps it as an active open project... This is misleading to potential customers as they think 1.) I am lazy and not updating my projects 2.) The project is in trouble because its taking so long to complete.... either way its bad and needs to get the bug fixed asap!
Why Are There Limitations? 3/5
A few things:
-I like LinkedIn’s new layout
-I like that they added videos
What’s the deal?:
-Why can’t I write an article from my mobile app? Seriously this should not be hard to create in the app. I don’t want to go to the desktop to create something that I can create from my phone. Fix this.
-Is LinkedIn’s desktop article broken? I create an article and I post a picture in the header and publish it. Then I don't see a picture in the header of my article. Fix this bug. I write articles everyday and this started happening Mar 2, 2018
Won't let me create an account 1/5
I cannot add my phone number without getting the error "you cannot use that phone number, please try another one". Until this is resolved, I give this one star.
App just crashes
