Ratings and Reviews
I cant believe pathetic built of this app. I was screwed as everytime I tried to pause/play the video by clicking on it, it changed the video. It took me a while to figure out that the clicks on the video are being sent back to the background screen because of which if you click on the right side of the video (when it is on fullscreen), that click is being sent to the right column (where there is a list of videos behind the current playing video) and chenges the current playing video.
I havent seen such a bad built of an app before. Lynda used to be great before LinkedIn aquired it.
Great for use during long commutes
I don't see why everyone hates this app so much. However, I will give this app only 4 stars since I did notice the theater mode setting neglecting to hide the background from your mouse. Other than that, I found the full downloads to be incredibly handy as I frequently ride on a train with no wifi. I'm also impressed with how quickly it syncs my progress once I return to wifi. Lastly, I find the interface to be simple and easy to navigate.
Organization Login works just fine
I see a lot of people struggling to use this app with their organization’s login.
I was able to do so by clicking the “1 click login” link in the app, which took me to my browser and verified that I was in fact logged in with my organization.
It’s clear that this app is just a companion to the site, not an alternative to it. It has no function outside of storing and managing downloaded courses. If that’s all you need it for, it’s great.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
