App Reviews

  • LinkedIn uses loopholes to retain its user base

    1
    By User Retention Loophole
    I have been trying to delete my LinkedIn account. I had a premium trial that I subscribed to via the App Store. The sub ended and I wanted to delete my account. LinkedIn said I needed to resolve an issue with apple to delete the account. I contacted apple. They can’t delete my account or alter my subscription to basic from premium. I can’t change to premium from either end. You must be in basic to be able to delete. Apple told me nothing can be done to a sub made on linked in through their App Store. Apple told me to contact LinkedIn. There is no way to contact LinkedIn support. It doesn’t have any feature. Each site points back to each other. Apple to LinkedIn, LinkedIn to apple. So now I’m leaving a review because I’m absolutely flabbergasted that this shady dealing by LinkedIn is happening and I fell victim to their sham. I can’t delete my account due to a subscription loophole. It is being used as a tactic to retain their user base. For legal clarification I do not make any false claims. I am not a employee of any competitor platform. I’m simply stating the facts so they can be put into public knowledge. If nothing is done to repair this issue within these two parties I will file a class action lawsuit with the many others who are unable to delete their accounts and are being led through serpentine pathways in order to reach deletion. You have 10 days to respond to this complaint/ review before legal action is taken.
  • Do not use unless you like spam calls text and emails

    By Geoworswat
    The search function is nice BUT, and this is huge if you are in the job market, if you apply through the app you are automatically giving permission to get spam, robocalls and texts. I started to apply for a job and discovered I had no choice but to accept allowing my LinkedIn contact info to be sent. I cancelled the job application as soon as I realized and didn’t complete applying through the site but it was too late. I immediately received 3 emails from job search list services I never heard of, which I then unsubscribed from. The next day the job search texts began(to expired ads no less started) so sent back STOP. And then the robo calls from pushy education telemarketers started. I told them to stop calling but they just hang up, so am blocking numbers. It’s a huge PIA when you are exploring job opportunities to have so many SPAM calls coming, since you have to listen to see if it’s a callback about a job or another robocall. So DO NOT apply to any jobs through the App, and would recommend just searching through normal LinkedIn and applying directly even though it takes a little longer. I am disgusted and aggravated by this experience with a LinkedIn branded service.
  • Too Far - take a lesson from FB

    By Artistes
    July 28, 2018 Update: "Even if (you're) not currently looking for a job... we'll now send you new alerts when a company you follow posts a job that fits your profile." Without asking permission. Without the option to say 'no.' Without even the slightest bit of rational, critical thought for anyone's desire or agenda or privacy but their own. Assume we are all thoughtless lemmings that will willingly and happily submit to whatever some mindless, anti-social media 'guru' stuffs down our throats, insisting that they know far better than we what is good for us. More than likely this is good for their bottom line, and the companies that cannot attract great talent and so must force themselves on us without permission. This, all assuming the obvious: that we are all worker bees, slaving away under one queen or another, having neither ability nor desire to forge our own path as queens. In other words, this obviously biased update makes a critical error by assuming EVERYONE longs to be an indentured servant – Employee – of someone else. Someone else who is clearly not a human being. Which brainless wonder who can't be bothered or concerned with consequences came up with this 'ingenious' assumption!?
  • Another chronological nightmare

    1
    By Farley213
    It seems that LinkedIn has joined the ranks of Facebook, Instagram and Twitter I’m not giving us posts in chronological order. The app is useless for this and on the site itself, while you can toggle to “most recent “ it still jumbles the lists up...gives you like 5 that were just posted then back to 1d, 4d, 1w, etc. I’m not seeing the people and posts I want to which means in return, people are not seeing mine either. However I’m also seeing the same “news’ post over and over for days now by a contact of mine. No one is commenting on it or liking it to bump it, it’s just permanently on my feed. (And seeing Stormy Daniels’ face every day is NOT why I use LI.) One more than thing...what is with the moving columns? Especially on safari I’ll try to just scroll down and the feed column starts to move around the page, or a column gets dragged around while I’m trying to read something. Please put the page in a fixed position, it’s ridiculous trying to navigate it right now. I use LinkedIn a lot. It’s a go to place for me. But it is very much getting to be non-user friendly and just more aggravating than helpful.
  • Serious VoiceOver accessibility problems

    By Lisa cushman
    I am a blind person using the screen reader voiceover for iOS and I am having some serious VoiceOver accessibility problems. For one thing, in the new version, when I double tap on my Contacts, the app crashes every time. Secondly, when I am browsing through my people you may know section, the app get slower and slower and slower the longer eyebrows. Thirdly, if you were using voiceover, there is no option to remove someone from your people you may know list so that you do not see them anymore. The accessibility problems with this app used to be somewhat minimal. I am really looking forward to seeing this app fixed and using LinkedIn again. It is one of my favorite social networking platforms. I apologize if other people are bored by this review, but LinkedIn also does not have any where in the app or on the app support page to provide feedback about the app. I would also be kind of nice if developer of LinkedIn provided details about its updates in its release notes, but many App developers don’t do this. It’s just a pet peeve.
  • Needs improvement

    4
    By MermaidGaby
    Overall LinkedIn is great. I love that it is a sleek and easy to use platform for conducting multiple job searches and networking. However, my biggest issue is the “easy apply” button. It would be terrific if LinkedIn set standards for which jobs employers could post under this category. As a recent graduate I am applying to dozens of jobs per month and frequent the easy apply setting—only to find that the job I just clicked on requires a cover letter, work sample, and several other documents in the application. What’s easy about that? I am no stranger to writing cover letters or sharing my work with a company that I would truly love to work for, but once in a while I am just exploring opportunities and I don’t have a generic cover letter to send to every employer who falsely lists their vacancy as “easy apply” to get more views. Please provide feedback on how your team is working to fix this.
  • LinkedIn is more then just a social media app

    By karen.yates02
    If you think this app is just here for social media you need to explore it more. There are so many ways to connect to professionals in your chosen field by connecting with them through your network. From there you can be introduced to other professionals and grow your network. Looking for a change in your current employment? Look for the job postings and tailor it specifically to your needs. LinkedIn will send you notifications directly to your email and applying is easy, usually directly from the the LinkedIn App. Are you looking to grow your company’s presence? Post articles related to your company or industry directly on LinkedIn and watch your presence grow. Yes, LinkedIn is more then just a social media app connecting professionals.
  • Option to improve feed needs to be improved

    3
    By M Kutman
    The app is solid and very easy to use. My complaints are the content in the Feed and that the option “improve my feed” really offers no real options except adding new people to follow. It should be flexible and let you choose what you want to see more of OR less of. For example, in my feed I don't need to see every single time a connection “likes” something. I also remember I always used to see when my current connections connected to new people. I used to see those a lot every day. That was helpful info if a contact connected to someone new in my industry. It worked well in conjunction with the other “people I may know” info. I almost never see those types of updates anymore in my feed. Can you explain why the feed offers me zero flexibility to see the things that are most important to me?
  • LinkedIn has staying power, but

    5
    By NancyMoiseHaws
    LinkedIn as a professional networking platform has staying power, but its arcane doors open to everyone approach puts some users at risk. The platform needs to be able to block certain users, and to filter some information as disclosed upon user’s approval. For example, I was constructively discharged by a former employer who later indicted and convicted by the DOJ on a separate matter, and I would rather 1) that former employer not be able to find my profile and posts, and 2) not have prospective employees and clients link to that employer and get a pack of lies. The terms of my discharge were thoroughly administratively adjudicated, and this situation makes me particularly aware of the security in light of #metoo. Come on LinkedIn. Get with the times.
  • App crashes and crashes again.

    2
    By Effthisnickname
    I downloaded the app again because I thought it would be easier to use on my phone. I’ve been using it for about 30 minutes and it has crashed 3 times. It crashed while I was sending a request to connect. I was attaching a message to this request because the person doesn’t know me. Now, It has sent the request and I can’t finish my message. I don’t know if it attached what I typed already or not. Given that LinkedIn is a tool to help people network and make professional connections, this is more than frustrating. Now, to reach out to this person, I would have to pay for a premium account and use “in mail.” I’ll not be using the app anymore which is a serious inconvenience. I stopped using the Linked In app years ago because it would lead to accidental connection requests while scrolling through searches or suggested connection.
