  • Disappointing

    By fast, cheap, and out of control
    Even if you’re a paid LinkedIn/Learning, there’s no connection to this app. You cannot watch anything. LinkedIn bought Lynda three years ago, so that’s disappointing.
  • Corporate login is a no-go. Bummer.

    Wanted to maximize available display space by viewing the tutorials offline using the app, but can’t login. There are two options, an “already logged in to the website” and the typical username/password. Since I was already logged in to the site, I chose that option. Spin, spin, spin, spin …need i go on? Nada. Oh, well, great online presence and great tutorials. App needs work (I think it does, I can’t even get past login)—can’t win them all.
  • Perfectly fine if you come in with the right expectations

    This is a tool, not a standalone Lynda.com. It has one and only one job, to allow you to watch Lynda offline, and it does that just fine, if you are fortunate enough to have abiliity view them offline. To those wondering why it’s just tellng them they haven’t downloaded any courses yet, it’s because you need to get on the Website, find a course, and go to “View Offline”.
  • Unclear user interface

    To say this app is “minimalist” is an understatement. There really is no UI unless you visit Lynda.com in Safari and then, on a course click “View Offline” and then “Start the Download.” At that point, it opens this app and you can then view the course without having an Internet connection. Developers: I’d suggest at the least, adding the ability to see my playlists in the app and/or a “browse courses” button that takes you to the website.
  • Needs updating to LinkedIn Learning

    This app doesn’t work properly if you are coming in via a LinkedIn Learning membership. Also the fact you need a Lynda.com account first to use this is highly confusing as a paying Lynda by LinkedIn subscriber. What happens if you don’t have a Lynda.com account and you have signed up for LinkedIn Learning? Well, you would think the signup page at Lynda.com would allow you to then setup an account which you can tie back to your LinkedIn Learning - Wrong! Lynda.com signup pages route you to LinkedIn making it near impossible to setup a Lynda.com account. Whoever designed the current Lynda.com to LinkedIn integration/merge SHAME ON YOU! Please fix this and release a dedicated LinkedIn Learning app for Mac.
  • Doesn’t Run on 10.9

    Says it does, but it does not. Still waiting to hear back from Lynda. Don’t bother
  • DO NOT PURCHASE ANY THING FROM THEM

    I cannot believe these people, they tell you to sign up and purchase their products through Linkedin learning, you do that, once you are done and wnat to log into their app or account they tell you you dont have accout. You search the internet for how to sign up for Lynda and they tell you that the only way possible to do that is through linked in which what you exactly just did but you still not able to log in because the account is created at Linked in learning and there is no possible way to create an account on their site. I just lost 50 USD for no reasons. I am so frustrated at the moment.

    Lot of negative reviews…Honestly, I just use this to watch the videos. If that’s what you want to do, then this app is great for that. Its interface is extremely minimalistic and clean looking. I’ve never had a bug. So…yea. I am a fan of this app.
  • Not what I was hoping For … get the phone app instead
