Optimize for Tablet
by Mike D'Angelo on 2019/04/23 23:48
Almost every major platform out there has versions of their mobile apps optimized for phones and one for tablets. I am an avid user and fan, but cannot believe LinkedIn has not optimized their mobile app for tablets. You get the phone app stretched to full screen with all activity in the center and a lot of dead space on either side.
Yuck
by Integrity Review on 2019/04/23 22:54
Ads, upsells, click bait and lame “classes” all slow down and interrupt the conversation. Oh I spoke to their mobile team, and they admitted it’s ad impressions and daily click interactions that matter most. They nag you to upload your private address book so they can spam and sell it as a feature to advertisers.
Business account is a scam!
by Gums jejune on 2019/04/23 03:37
Didn’t even know I was signed up through iTunes and got a charge for 60$! Over 600$ a year for a social network that’s becoming more and more just like Facebook. What a waste!
App crashes and stops responding
by beelol9817 on 2019/04/21 10:19
I can access my messages my notifications and connection requests and but whenever I start to scroll down my timeline the app crashes and stops responding and this issue stays is like never ending now. Using linkedin on my windows since 6 months as there is no update to fix this problem.
Lack of help, never responds, lost hope.
by cazcino on 2019/04/20 21:24
I made the mistake of thinking this was a “helpful” site. I’ve been on LinkedIn almost a week now, & with no friends it’s kind of difficult to maneuver, as if that’s not bad enough tagging LinkedIn to ask em questions directly gets you nowhere, no response, none at at all. Even some of their members seem oblivious. If anyone has a better site/app anything, pls comment it I’d appreciate it.
Not a great app
by sitinbhaooy on 2019/04/20 18:51
I was so inspired by an interview with the CEO of Linked In. What a leader in an industry I thought!! I find linked In very restrictive. All I get is emails from the people in my profession. I want to connect to others who are inspiring doing innovative things, sharing new ideas in many areas. I have a work emails s cannot have a second email used to do other connections. I hope th CRO is listening he has some important changes to make this more relevant and useful

Split View & Slide Over Support for iPad Pro
by bcambas on 2019/04/20 12:30
Putting myself in LinkedIn’s shoes for a moment . . . I assume that the app is not the greatest value driver at LinkedIn, and I assume that priorities have shifted somewhat since the Microsoft acquisition to focus more on adding value to across the Microsoft ecosystem with newly available LinkedIn data, and I am confident that LinkedIn (and Microsoft for that matter) will eventually get around to producing “pro” apps for iOS enterprise license holders at some point (html signatures in Outlook?). My review here, therefore, should not be construed as a “complaint,” but rather as an expression of “disappointment”—when you ask a customer to pay $60-$120 per month for a premium service, you expect a premium (read: “efficient”) experience. Many professionals use iPads to do real work, and some portion of those professionals are among LinkedIn’s premium customers. Ensuring that your app is ready to take advantage of the latest features made available by the platform (iOS) utilized by a majority of your premium customers is the minimum LinkedIn should be doing to express its appreciation for this group—doing so would require minimal time and resources. Apps published by children have this feature; therefore, it seems reasonable to expect apps published by Silicon Valley Unicorns to be at least one order of magnitude more polished, modern, and efficient.
LinkedIn is great except
by Caroline Carbaugh on 2019/04/19 22:29
I really enjoy this app and I remember first getting introduced to it when I was at a vocational transition program for the blind last year. For some reason, every time I hit connect on someone I know with the people you may know tab, it’s not give me the confirmation that people‘s invitations are on the way like it used to and I wish it would do that, I hope you can take the time to fix that bug as a blind person thank you so much otherwise for including the blind in making this app
What did I buy for $29.99 a month?
by Crud-NOTokay on 2019/04/19 16:54
Unfortunately I have no idea how I signed up for this and would NEVER have agreed to pay this amount per month for a service I don’t need! Extremely disappointed since I have tried to cancel several times but can’t get my $$ back and still charging me every month. Extremely upset since I can’t afford this and now my bank account is near empty!
Account blocked
by Omer4664 on 2019/04/19 06:53
I had created my company account 2 time and it get blocked for no reason,im really disappointed with this thing As it effects me repo to my customers when they asked your linked in account is not working I am answer less to them 😐.
The app is crashing on iphone 10
by hipande on 2019/04/19 04:36
THIS APP JUST DOES NOT WORK. The app is crashing like anything on iphone 10. I am about to uninstall this since I am having major issues with this app.
Obviously dominant career platform, BUT glitchy
by ddosch on 2019/04/18 22:12
Regular hiccups in interface with iOS/GBoard typing, and frequently fails to upload posts I put a lot of work into. No draft option means "failed to post" =deletion. Awful. Surprisingly bad for such an otherwise good, essential app.
Premium overpriced and complicated to cancel
by MrDJ759 on 2019/04/18 11:55
Premium is $60 after the free trial. I’m aware I read cancellation procedure and made a note on my calendar. LinkedIn website sends me to Apple. Which doesn’t give me the option to cancel. Unsure how to actually speak or reach customer service, Reach out to Apple who can’t help but I must use them to cancel. Now I am stuck with a feature that is helpful but not necessary. At 1 point it turned job searching off because I didn’t respond to the borderline “spam” offers I received. Never go premium complete waste that probably won’t help you get a job.
Feature Request🙏
by varunchunduru on 2019/04/18 01:39
Please add the option to sort news feed posts by "top" and "recent" respectively just like the LinkedIn website. Would like to get the latest news instead of seeing the same old top stories Everytime I get on the app. Thank you!!
Very frustrating to Log In
by maha2016 on 2019/04/17 14:48
Logging is is the more frustrating process vs any other major app. The “security check” (even when clicking all the boxes correctly) is a horrible experience.
Extremely confusing!
by 1961DBSN on 2019/04/16 15:10
I tried to use this app for more than a year and find the structure very confusing. Needs to be simplified for “not every day” users.
Connection issues
by Ocelad on 2019/04/16 13:48
The mobile app has sometimes connection issues.
Messages unusable for me
by Dvbillen on 2019/04/16 12:34
Get notifications of messages but then the app stops refreshing them. Have to go to the web app to have a conversation. Also too many useless notifications such that you end up ignoring the badge. I deleted it and just use the web app. UPDATE: I tried it again because the browser badgers me to use the app. Day 2 of using it and it thinks I have no internet connection even though I do and all other apps know it. This is a train wreck.
Fraudulent purchases
by mcanally2018 on 2019/04/16 01:11
For some reason your software is letting people use credit card numbers in my phone that I did not give them permission to use because of your software there has been fraudulent purchases on my phone
Crashes
by Cpl AV on 2019/04/15 12:17
App keeps crashing after update, I keep getting prompted to sign in. What happened!
Non-Functional
by kittykat2767 on 2019/04/15 02:01
When uploading my photo, whenever I’d click to save, nothing would happen. Then it glitched and kept saying that the photo upload had failed over and over in a notification. After trying to add more background to my profile, the same thing happened with the save button.
Extension of Facebook
by Cakid88 on 2019/04/14 18:59
I’ve had my LinkedIn account for several years, and made some good contacts, but recently it has turned into an extension of Facebook. The people that are posting FB crap don’t consider LinkedIn to be a professional platform, and don’t care.
Enjoying LinkedIn
by Singwingz on 2019/04/13 16:14
I am very happy to use LinkedIn. Sometimes the iPhone keyboard covers the LinkedIn comment I am writing and I have to write it blindly, post it, and then see if I made any mistakes.
Bleh
by LexTalionis53 on 2019/04/13 14:52
Unfollowing someone has no effect, no matter how many times I try. Hidden posts show up the next time I load the app. Tons of ads. “New posts available” are usually just ads. Now the app has stopped loading updates and requires that I reinstall it in order to restore functionality.
Account disappeared after medical leave.
by JustAQTCub on 2019/04/13 13:56
My account and all my information, skills, Lynda.com certificates and recommendations completely disappeared. I was out on medical leave for 3 months and when I returned I tried logging into my account. It kept saying that my email address didn’t exist. I wanted to open a service request however to do so you have to be logged in. So I tried to create an account using my same email address. If my account existed, the account creation should have failed saying email address already exists or is being used but it didn’t. The account was created successfully. I opened a service request: [190312-003939]. All support keeps telling me is they cannot locate the account. They don’t seem to be very worried. There has to be database archives to locate the account prior to December 2018 so it can be restored. Disappointed in such poor support!
App availability
by techscene on 2019/04/13 03:06
This application should reach older versions on iOS, there are apps that will install the compatible for your device, and state that it is not the newest version, but it will still function.
NO SOLICITING
by NYCXI on 2019/04/12 20:00
I hate LinkedIn its just salespeople requesting to connect just so they can try and sell you their garbage products and services. The app design is fine besides the icons. I don’t know who designed or approved them but they are absolutely horrendous on both the app and even worse the website, it’s like they downloaded free ones off the internet and use low quality exports.
Can’t login with google auth anymore
by FaussyMuNaussy on 2019/04/12 14:00
App only allows LinkedIn login password. I can’t login anymore no matter what I try
Don’t trust this app
by Fentoozla on 2019/04/12 13:45
Got a text message from someone I had met in person and had absolutely no interaction or connection with on LinkedIn or anywhere online. Within 1 week received a LinkedIn email on suggested connections and who is on this email, the person who sent me a text. No thanks, go read someone else’s texts.
Crashing
by muffmouse on 2019/04/12 01:42
Ever since the update yesterday, I can't see the version cause it won't open, it keeps crashing.
Stupid and Buggy
by whoztawkin on 2019/04/10 23:48
Navigation with this app is a pain. It behaves and looks nothing like the web sight. It frequently hangs, crashes and loses or corrupt my data. I'm not going to waste anymore time.
Fixed!
by DontnoD on 2019/04/10 17:01
Iphone Xs max. Cannot post as top of screen is overlapped with pull down menu. Cannot cancel as left side is overlapped with clock. Thanks for fixing the app!
App hasn’t worked in months
by kittlin67 on 2019/04/10 13:38
I have used Linked In and Sales Navigator for years, but now my activity has dramatically decreased because the app never works. Every day for the last six months or so, my page won’t load and I get a message that it’s not me and to try again later. I have re installed the app and same thing. Linked in customer service is notoriously bad so I guess I’m just out of luck. Not a very good example of a business platform when the app doesn’t work.

Responding to recruiters new feature is terrible
by unnecessary change on 2019/04/09 23:46
In the past when I was contacted by a recruiter in my message inbox, I could respond directly to the recruiter. Now, the app forces you to respond whether or not you are interested in the job before you have a chance to respond. To me this is a 100% unnecessary feature and is an unprofessional way to contact a recruiter to express interest. The right way to treat a recruiter is to write that person directly and let them know your intentions, perhaps including some background for your decision. This can help keep communication channels open in the future and is a networking opportunity. This new feature is a result of someone “overthinking” the situation. This goes back to the old saying, “If its not broke, don't fix it”
Can’t share profile link
by Alpha&0mega on 2019/04/09 21:18
Why is it not possible to share my profile url or covert my profile to PDF within the app? It’s easy to do with PC.
LinkedIn premium charge
by Eeshwar Ponnala on 2019/04/09 19:20
I tried using LinkedIn premium free trial for a month, was on a weekend trip with family, phone battery was dead so didn’t checked the subscription end date. I cancelled my subscription ASAP and contacted both LinkedIn, Apple unfortunately none of them says they are responsible. Didn’t refunded the charge contacted which I cancelled within a day. Not customer friendly.
I hate LinkedIn
by s.m.m.4.2.0. on 2019/04/09 15:05
I’ll say it again. I hate LinkedIn. It is so frustrating that it feels like you need to have a profile to validate your professional presence and experience. The platform is clunky and inelegant, I don’t understand why it’s a GD trial every time you ever try to log in, and on top of that I constantly have fifty thousand notifications about missed messages and activity that are actually NOTHING. I have to maintain my organization’s page as well, so I am unfortunately on the site often enough to keep my inbox clear, and yet the app and the site are always bombarding me with notifications and flags about activity that is not even real. Stop the fake notifications! I dream of a future where LinkedIn is irrelevant and gone.
Poor customer service
by joyofthelord12 on 2019/04/09 13:36
So this is the third review I am writing, my first two were taken down. Again my issue is a simple one. 1. Make the “X” to click off a potential contact a bit larger so I am not opening one instead of deleting it. 2. If I delete someone don’t put them back in the suggested contacts over and over and over and over. They should not ever appear again. Two simple fixes to two problems with linked in. Additional problem that was not in my first two reviews: 3. Don’t delete my review because you don’t like it. 3/9/19 Update: Keeps getting worse. Nothing has been fixed and the little “x” seems harder to click. I don’t want to click on the “x” just to have it open someone’s profile. It is a false click. I am sure that is why I get so many “people are looking at your profile” notifications each week, the tiny “x” I will add another problem: 4. Half the time now I cannot open a profile I actually want to see. The program freezes and I need to close and reopen the app, then I need to TRY to find that persons again. Please, I implore you, please fix these small, but glaring, problems
Constant Badge App Icon for no reason
by MattOBMeraki on 2019/04/09 13:25
For as long as I can remember, the app has had a badge icon as if there is a notification of some sort. When entering the app, it will hold a badge on the networking tab, yet when you click it, there is no request or anything. I have uninstalled, reinstalled and signed in on a Pc to inspect my profile. Guess I’ll have to turn of badge app icons? Very annoying!
Good stuff
by sweetscorpion11 on 2019/04/09 12:40
Good app for connecting and networking. How come we can’t delete messages though? I feel this should be a standard feature.
Not bad, but...
by TyForSenate on 2019/04/09 12:24
The linked in app itself isn’t all that bad, but there’s got to be a way to get rid of that pull down window that’s always showing a small banner on top! It’s the window with 3 steps to get started on LinkedIn. First scroll page says “keep building your network”. It is extremely annoying and pops up every time you open the app, and doesn’t completely go away ever. It reappears as soon as you scroll back up in your feed. That’s the one thing keeping me from using the app more, I don’t need a little pop up deal blocking half my screen when I’m scrolling through my feed. Thanks, please get rid of it.
Help removing “Student Voices”
by Zphal on 2019/04/09 03:32
I used to love scrolling through my LinkedIn feed on my phone; sometimes more than FB because the content is more interesting. However, the new addition of the Student Voices bar takes up a ridiculous amount of real estate on my screen. I don’t even have an interest in the feature, yet I can’t find a way to disable it or remove it. It’s always there taking up space and annoying me! A little help please??
Crash problem
by Sinaag on 2019/04/09 03:31
In new update when I want to read my messeages the app crashes.
Biggest mistake was to reinstall it again
by Junaid Zafar on 2019/04/08 19:55
Have been a user of linkedin app but instead of getting better this app is touching the lowest of levels everyday. Keeps freezing and crashing on scrolling. Tried everything from reinstalling it to updating my iOS but nothing worked. If you can’t make it work please shut it down because we’ll be happy using the website version only.
Personally
by joeyjoey g on 2019/04/07 00:14
I guys comprised overrated Used vessels to put burst burdens with optimism and complied with skill and poise While unratting writer and people in educationed with friendliness and professionalism unestimating a person skills and abilities that range close or near your communicative skills glossed writhing American standards and claiming answers within my morals of self evaluation and study Simplify I think the forwardness is fake but apporiates to future needs within yourselves
Last update is unstable
by SG Golf Edge on 2019/04/06 12:20
Please either back out your last update or have it debugged again. The message history crashes and never loads. This never happened before. It even takes forever to log off. Every section that I open like Home, connections, alerts, nothing opens up. This is the first time in all Your updates that this has happened. Please fix.
Great website, great content, terrible app
by peacefulpink on 2019/04/06 12:04
You’d think for a company that thrives on networking for other companies would at least have the technical support to upkeep an app in the modern times. Unfortunately, the LinkedIn app is laced with bugs and it’s slower than most social media apps. I find the lagging leads to repeated postings, information isn’t saving, and I just realized I’ve wasted 15 minutes trying to update one component of my profile. Total waste of time. I’m new to LinkedIn in a sense, but I appreciate its efforts. Still, I think I’ll be sticking to their website version, not this poorly run app.
App Crashing
by Agent 6 on 2019/04/06 01:56
Every time I attempt to share a job the entire app crashes. I deleted and reinstalled and it is still happening.
Update won’t download
by iamagraverobber on 2019/04/06 01:02
Tried several times to download the most recent update on my iPad. Doesn’t do it.
Unnecessary security check
by Luisito1984 on 2019/04/05 23:11
I have tried to log in several times from the app itself, but every time I log in it takes me to a security page when I have to verify I am not a robot. Then after I pass with a 100% accuracy it takes me to another unnecessary step in which they have to send a security link to my email, then I will open this email with the SECURITY CHECK which it will take me to the mobile site which I don’t need to be taken to. Then i will go back to the app, and try to log in ONCE AGAIN, and guess what?...............it freaking happens again. Software Team please address this and fix it.
Horrible for job searches
by Tiny Majesty on 2019/04/05 19:23
App will crash and delete applications that you’re in the middle of without saving anything. This has happened to be 6 TIMES over the last month. Don’t bother!
Worst customer service

Hands-down. Some of the worst I’ve ever experienced.
App is freezing upon opening
by bsrirao on 2019/04/04 23:36
The app is freezing at home/feed screen and controls are not working. No data on the feed screen and It is completely unresponsive. I deleted the app and reinstalled, still the same issue.
Horrible customer support
by Fireftr985 on 2019/04/04 15:32
App updated and now I can’t log in. Tells me to contact support. I do so, I some generic response from Micala. She tells me to provide information, I do so and try to log on from multiple other locations. No problems signing in anywhere else. I provide her with that information as requested and I get no response from anyone.
Duplicate messages
by Bobochoosenfew on 2019/04/04 12:29
When you wish someone congratulations from your cell phone, and choose a suggested message. After the message is sent...another duplicated message is there to send. Please fix this. I have screenshots of what is happening as well if you need to see what I’m talking about.

Mobile is inferior to desktop version
by Charlex123 on 2019/04/03 13:26
I find LinkenIn a valuable way to connect professionally. I like the convenience of being able to access my account on my laptop or through the app. The mobile app has issues though, primarily that the news feed can not be displayed chronologically with “most recent” instead of the algorithm-determined “top stories”. The value of this network is seeing what people are doing now and what events are coming up. Eliminating the ability to view the feed by recent posts makes the mobile app useless for me. Please change the app to display the feed is chronological order. This is not Facebook.
LinkedIn would repo your house for not answering the door
by szshen on 2019/04/03 11:28
My account was restricted, allegedly because someone answered “I don’t know this person” even though I have only sent invitations to people suggested by LinkedIn (whom I do know). I then had to upload a photo of a driver’s license and customer support had the gall to call it a “one-time” favor to lift the restriction, as if they were being just so magnanimous for doing it. If you want pictures of IDs, just say it when we register for an account instead of making up this BS. Since then, the app will log me out randomly when I click on various links, as well as show incorrect data such as no connections or pending invitations or messages. Is it realistic that I can get someone’s account locked for asking them to connect and then answering “I don’t know this person”?
App gets stuck!
by Tayyab278 on 2019/04/03 07:00

Like a used car salesmen, but an app
by JonPaul2 on 2019/04/02 19:36
Same update message for months people...wake up. It’s the same recruiters offering the same pre-formatted messages to any who don’t change the default privacy settings. Oh, and let’s not forget this service tracks your browsing across Safari once installed (this the frequent updates to dance around Apple guidelines).
Inconsistent
by Supercharbie on 2019/03/31 22:10
The platform has become consistently glitchy. We have been unable to tag, unable to find profiles of important connections, experiencing diminished views of our posts, etc. It is a quagmire.

Freezes and Glitches
by Ssaboungi on 2019/03/30 02:47
I recently downloaded this app. The app freezes constantly, after just opening it and pressing on an option or just attempting to scroll down your newsfeed. The app has crashed several times already. It’s been frustrating to use!

Frustrated
by asshatcrapapp on 2019/03/28 19:09
Used LinkedIn for a long time. Decided to try the “free” trial for sales navigator. I was disappointed that it didn’t seem to link to my regular account for some reason. When I tried to cancel the app I found it ridiculously annoying to try to do so. Had to email customer support. They Said my email wasn’t registered so after figuring all this out I get billed 80.00 for a service I never used and now don’t have the app for and apple won’t refund my money. And now I have to try 8 million nicknames to even post this ..🤦🏻‍♂️
Sometimes annoying
by Marc 52805327632984 on 2019/03/27 11:59
I don’t like it when I read an interesting story at the top of my news feed from overnight when my screen automatically refreshes the story vanishes so far down that I can’t find it.
Sharing posts
by BosGeorge on 2019/03/27 03:49
The update makes the app crash when you try sharing posts. So the app is useless!
Roped into premium
by Mango-meng on 2019/03/26 23:20
I signed up for a free promotion of premium and canceled it then after a month they charged me anyway. Scam, don’t sign up for the free promo.
worst self-service experience
by worst self-service experience on 2019/03/26 20:04
LinkedIn made me log into iTunes, a completely different app and provider to cancel. Why? I never use iTunes. I should be able to cancel directly from LinkedIn. They ended up getting an extra month or so of fees out of me. Never again!
Bug on my app
by Fx665 on 2019/03/26 17:59
I have over a month with a bug on my app. There’s always a notification on my pending invitation tab even though there are no invitations pending. I tried deleting it and downloading it again and it didn’t work. Always check for updates that hasn’t helped either. Please fix this. Thanks!
The app shuts down (crashes) when I open the messages
by Abdulrahman Alkhodair on 2019/03/26 16:13
I’ve been facing this issue for a while now. Whenever I get messages on LinkedIn and try to respond to them using the app, the apps shuts me down. Every time I need. To respond to someone on linked in, I have to use my laptop. I looked for an update, my app is already updated. My phone, is updated. This issue becoming frustrating. My phone is updated, the app is updated, yet the problem still exist. And I found out that I am not the only one according the reviewer on App Store. So I would suggest that you update the App and solve this issue for everyone instead of having us all come here to write about it, and you suggest solutions that don’t work.
Messages with large content issues
by DrJD2019 on 2019/03/26 15:32
After the most recent update, I encountered an app disconnect/collapse issue when I click on a colleague message that has a large text content. Other light messages are fine.
Notifications aren’t accurate
by alisacullison on 2019/03/26 11:13
LinkedIn will show a red notification bubble on the app but when I click into the notifications screen, there is nothing there.
Suggestion
by Senorita1 on 2019/03/25 21:39
Thanks for improving the application i think we need to send videos sometimes in the conversation which is not enabled in the messages between contacts. I can only send images and audio but cant send any videos.
one problem
by soopkr on 2019/03/25 00:13
I’m mostly enjoying the app but have one problem - while scrolling through my feed I tend to accidentally like a post. This never happens with other similar social apps but happened a few times with linked in. It makes me less comfortable using the app to browse my feed.
No internet connection???
by nihits on 2019/03/23 16:53
I do have internet connection.. your app does not “link”... update: I found it was due to the settings: linked in app had cellular data turned off.
Excellent communication platform
by elle-life on 2019/03/23 00:37
Had account since 2009, great informative platform. I select the type of information interested in and from which source. Most importantly, I stay connect with professionals from all branches of business.
I hate it
by übr 8cc1 on 2019/03/22 20:09
Every time I try to sign up it tells me to enter my phone number for verification so I enter my number get the code but when I try to enter the code it tells me there is an error
Good Job! Nice App
by AkramRana on 2019/03/22 18:51
App is randomly crashing and force stop since last update. Can’t use it now. Please fix it. [Edit:] The app is working fine now.So decided to change the review
Glitchy App
by Harrison2722 on 2019/03/22 15:55
This app is full of glitches from “hundreds of failed to upload photo” notifications, (even though my photo was uploaded?), to suddenly switching pages. I was interested in trying it out. But not anymore. Needs a lot of work before I’m willing to try again.
App crash
by HM1388 on 2019/03/22 13:10
The app crashes after sending messages to people, once I tried reopening the message again it keep crashing, I can only read the message using the website I’m using iphone max, latest iOS update
App freezes
by jigsaw4544 on 2019/03/22 10:46
For such a big name you have the worst application I’ve ever seen, it has been so long and you guys haven’t fixed this issue. Every time i open the application it would freeze after scrolling couple of posts. It’s not like it happens once in a while, it would do the same all day long. If you guys don’t have efficient developers then use your own platform to find some one who can fix this issue.
Insecure app
by AnnoyedLJD on 2019/03/22 04:39
The update password settings page in the app doesn’t allow you to paste passwords, breaking password managers like LastPass making it very hard to secure your account.
Good service, terrible app
by Nacthemife95 on 2019/03/22 03:50
LinkedIn is a professional necessity but the app is awful. They have deliberately made it difficult to sign out, and that is a huge security flaw. The app also posts outdated information, often again and again. Dump the app. Use the web interface.
Hard to use web site makes me close account
by Bean1268 on 2019/03/21 16:37
I simply wanted to log out of my account through the web. NO I don’t want to download the app. It wouldn’t let me sign out so I closed my account. I can’t even send messages without paying money? Ugh. LinkedIn has turned to trash. So frustrating to use so don’t even bother.
Problem
by Funnyboy 67 on 2019/03/21 15:36
It keeps adding people without me trying to what’s going on?
Junk
by Icons_requester on 2019/03/21 13:46
App is absolute garbage...within a year, it went from a functional professional app to the state it’s in now scrapping bottom of the barrel...infested with junk notification, promoted garbage adds, endless crashes, broken functions...disgusting!

Just did the new update and now it crashes constantly. I deleted it and reinstalled it but it’s the same thing.
Split View & Slide Over Support for iPad Pro
by bcambas on 2019/04/20 12:30
Putting myself in LinkedIn’s shoes for a moment . . . I assume that the app is not the greatest value driver at LinkedIn, and I assume that priorities have shifted somewhat since the Microsoft acquisition to focus more on adding value to across the Microsoft ecosystem with newly available LinkedIn data, and I am confident that LinkedIn (and Microsoft for that matter) will eventually get around to producing “pro” apps for iOS enterprise license holders at some point (html signatures in Outlook?). My review here, therefore, should not be construed as a “complaint,” but rather as an expression of “disappointment”—when you ask a customer to pay $60-$120 per month for a premium service, you expect a premium (read: “efficient”) experience. Many professionals use iPads to do real work, and some portion of those professionals are among LinkedIn’s premium customers. Ensuring that your app is ready to take advantage of the latest features made available by the platform (iOS) utilized by a majority of your premium customers is the minimum LinkedIn should be doing to express its appreciation for this group—doing so would require minimal time and resources. Apps published by children have this feature; therefore, it seems reasonable to expect apps published by Silicon Valley Unicorns to be at least one order of magnitude more polished, modern, and efficient.
Premium is a waste of money
by Sm1tty82 on 2019/03/15 17:51
I’ve used LinkedIn for years, but only ever had the usual free account. It served the purpose, put myself out there. Now fast forward to today, I’m on LinkedIn more often as I search for my next career opportunity. Still a free account, I saw the attention I was getting when applying, how often I was coming up in searches. I went ahead and got the Premium, but noticed no change in my stats that indicate it is worth the money. On a free account I would appear about 30 times a week in searches. With Premium, still 30 times a week. Knowing where I rank compared to every one else and how my skills stack up to the posted position does not add a lot of value. Nice to know, but not for $30 a month. On a side note, even when I was 10/10 on skills I still got one of those “Sorry, we are perusing others...”. So the value of knowing where you stand isn’t high. Now to the app, there are 2 things I like. The job search feature is easy to use, and great that it saves previous criteria. I also like how each tab works independently. So my homepage is where I left it, jobs page is where I left it and I can go back and forth while keeping my place. Might not seem like a big deal, until you don’t have something similar.
Non professional operating system for an app based on professionalism
by jnels223 on 2019/02/22 15:01
I had created and maintained a linkedin account for years, however unfortunately created my account with an email address that I can no longer access. I have tried for, I kid you not, months, to re set my email so I can maintain the hundreds of connections I’ve made with this app in the past. Not only does the service crash every single time I try providing my drivers license to reset the email account, but when I finally found an email to contact linkedin directly about the problem, I have yet to receive a response. And as today when I decided to bite the bullet and create a new account, the app presents to me an “error” once again and I am unable to create a new account. I am horribly disappointed at the lack of customer support and frankly find it quite ironic that a site would hinge its function on professionalism yet not provide a customer support number to call and speak to a person about issues such as mine. I am a recent graduate in a location where my field is flooded, so any app or networking site is crucial for me. Low and behold, Linkedin seems bent on skirting around issues related to their app and the customers suffering because of it. Truly disappointed.
Serious VoiceOver accessibility problems
by Lisa cushman on 2018/03/27 05:14
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
by MermaidGaby on 2018/03/30 23:11
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.
Chronological content feed - second attempt.
by Mike O PhD on 2018/12/14 00:13
LinkedIn... I love your platform. I have already posted a comment on the lack of a sort by “recent” function on for iOS. When I’m on my phone, the work around is to go to your mobile site, then request the desktop site, then select “sort by: recent”. The most recent update you just pushed out now has “lives” or something that feels like a clone of Instagram/YouTube/Snapchat/Facebook, etc. I do not subscribe to these platforms because I believe LinkedIn is the only social media platform of any substance. There is quality content and networking happening everyday. Why did your newest update add a cookie-cutter “lives” function and not a simple “sort by:recent” function. Why am I seeing 3 week old posts with recent posts scattered about. Totally ridiculous... The one platform I thought was doing a service to a community of professional people is slowly becoming just another social media platform.
LinkedIn is more then just a social media app
by karen.yates02 on 2017/11/17 13:26
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
by M Kutman on 2018/01/16 01:51
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
by NancyMoiseHaws on 2018/01/12 13:07
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.
by Effthisnickname on 2018/09/13 01:23
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.
Terrible Update for New Jobseekers!!
by Dulce CaraBella on 2018/11/24 16:01
Why is the current company name for occupation now forced in the headline with the job title!?!? What about those of us that are currently seeking other jobs while still working at the current position??? This is a terrible thing, we should have the option to not have the company name on our headlines if we don’t want it! So disappointed. I was getting so many job opportunity inbox messages from recruiters with my customized headline before this terrible update, I was wondering why I hadn’t seen any inbox messages recently and now I know why, since you removed my customized headline and added the company I currently work for I don’t standout to recruiters anymore and I’m not getting any leads, my headline looks just like everybody else’s headline therefore recruiters don’t even notice me anymore because my headline doesn’t standout like it use to. Change it back please!
iPhone X
by Johnnyboy1960 on 2017/12/20 16:50
Number one, if your application in the Apple IDs door would support a dialog box when selecting apps support I would be writing this in that dialog box and not under reviews. My review is based on the fact that Face ID is not used by LinkedIn. LinkedIn‘s responses leave your app signed in. I do not wish to do that, the information in the app is too private for me to take LinkedIn suggestion. The technology for Face ID has been incorporated to I would say 70 percent of the applications at this point, so it tells me that updating your app to use this functionality cannot be that difficult. I’ll be waiting for the Face ID recognition in your app soon. I would use your out more by not having to manually put in my password, holding the phone to your face makes my motivation to use your application what greater than having to use my large fingers To type in my password. Thank you, John
Freezes, Can’t apply for jobs, links don’t work! NEEDS THE TO BE FIXED!
by Xtyna Yee on 2019/01/09 19:15
I’ve heard so many people speak highly of LinkedIn, so I tried it out. Unfortunately this app does NOT work, as it needs serious updates. When you try to apply for any of the job listing your are given the option to give permission to attach your LinkedIn profile in replace or your resume, it does NOT work. Once you click you get a white screen or when it does go through to the next screen where it will ask for your name and contact info it freezes. Therefore you can not apply for any of their job listings. So I look up the company on google to find their website and then apply that way with my own resume. The only thing LinkedIn is good for right now is to locate a job listing. Then apply on their site. I gave 1 star because at least they still proved job listing I can apply to on the companies web site directly.
Professional Networking Tool
by Candy_Girl80'sbaby on 2018/10/24 02:58
LinkedIn is my preferred way to interact with business professionals. I do, however, wish that the site would allow a longer time to deactivate an account or allow one to restore their account within a year. I deactivated my account for a “spiritual hiatus” and attempted to set my account back up and was unable to retrieve it. I built a great network before and now it seems like I am not getting as many recommendations for people that I knew from college and other businesses. 😏 I’m sure my post sounds like a combination of great things and not so great things, but I do really appreciate the fact that the tool is much more professional than most social media outlets.
Responding to recruiters new feature is terrible
by unnecessary change on 2019/04/09 23:46
In the past when I was contacted by a recruiter in my message inbox, I could respond directly to the recruiter. Now, the app forces you to respond whether or not you are interested in the job before you have a chance to respond. To me this is a 100% unnecessary feature and is an unprofessional way to contact a recruiter to express interest. The right way to treat a recruiter is to write that person directly and let them know your intentions, perhaps including some background for your decision. This can help keep communication channels open in the future and is a networking opportunity. This new feature is a result of someone “overthinking” the situation. This goes back to the old saying, “If its not broke, don't fix it”
Horrible interface
by SquidlyMan on 2017/10/31 15:30
This is a perfect example of what NOT to do in mobile app design. 1. Useless messenger button that does nothing but try and get you to download the app by popping not one, but two screens (if you don’t have it). I won’t load Facebook Messenger because it won’t let me select no tracking without constantly being harassed. 2. Extremely small “x” for closing annoying ad windows so that if you have any normal or larger than normal finger (god forbid you try and use your thumb) then you end up opening the item instead. 3. Allowing you to block some advertisers for only 30-Days at a time??? Seriously. If it wasn’t bad enough that you show me adds from advertisers I’ve already blocked, now you’re unblocking them after 30 Days?? 4. Extremely small “x” for closing annoying recommended groups windows so that if you have any normal or larger than normal finger (god forbid you try and use your thumb) then you end up opening the item instead. Can I just get you to stop recommending stuff to me? I’m not sure what algorithm you use but the recommendations are horrible. 5. Translations are rarely ever correct. Give up here and just license Google’s translator. I’m not saying Google Translate is good, but it would at least be correct more than your translations are. There are more, I’m sure. But we will stop here.
Good app
by Nickname is already taken 3 on 2018/09/28 03:44
I really like LinkedIn because it’s social media kept professional. A suggestion I’d make that would help recruiters find and connect with talent is to add a salary requirement to the “jobs settings”. I get contacted by so many recruiters and each time they contact me about a position I talk to them for about 30 minutes just to find out they want to offer me a job that pays me 25-50% less than my current salary. It’s a complete waste of my time and the recruiter’s time as well. Another thing I’d recommend is providing recruiters a service that lets them know what is the median salary for the position they are trying to hire for so they understand how much professionals earn in their industry and position.
Good app but bad recent changes
by mugnum_parts on 2019/03/08 22:38
LinkedIn is a great professional app and I love how I can work on my career and look for opportunities using it! Haven’t had any weird glitches with it yet that downgraded my experience. I do have to deduct some points though for recent changes. The messages button was moved to the upper right and in its place on the bottom middle of the screen is the add a post button. This seems like a worse UI experience because I know I check and respond to messages far more than I post up a message and it’s kinda awkward to move the messages button up there. I also find that I can’t swipe to the right to go back to the last page I was on. Instead, I usually have to tap the back arrow in the upper left, which again, could be improved.
Creepy app. Should be illegal to require LiN training
by AppTasticUpdate on 2019/03/16 04:10
Devs, dont think im following your shady & creepy links to follow up w this review that also track me across the internet you stalkers w your creepy site apis on weird websites that add it & will dox me/ip & other people without opt IN CONSENT. You all are creeps! You all are stalker people farmers bros. Enjoy your career at a people farmer. Should be illegal for my company to require LiN (lynda etc) to do corporate training! This company provides discriminatory algorithms to HR for ‘up and coming’ (..right?) as well as demographic data that is illegal to have for hiring. ...they are also a surveillance capitalist people farmer that has no place collecting my pii in my place of work! Aside from this new revelation after giving up LiN bc it’s nothing more than a chest beating fb bro boy crap fest reincarnate now that everyone expects you to be on to show your network??? lol lemmings, this entire company is shady.
Watch out for Premium Trial!!
by GREEK 2U on 2018/05/11 23:24
The mobile version lacks so many of the desktop version features such as privacy features and profile customization. However, what really bothers me is that LinkedIn uses this difference to their financial advantage so you cannot cancel a Premium subscription from your device even if they allow you to subscribe from your phone easily. You also get no notification when the Premium trial is ending so you get charged abruptly. If you miss the subscription cancellation date, LinkedIn will offer no refunds even if late by an hour!! Really? Update: The LinkedIn team reached out to me as shown below to offer support. Alas, it was all just lip service. When I reached out, they simply confirmed the limitations I had originally complained about without any real assistance offered.
#1 business platform for a reason
by PhilHowardSales on 2017/12/02 15:41
With a perfect domain score and understanding that 1:3 of the business world is on Linkedin... why would you not have this app and remain connected with potential new clients, leads, comments on your articles etc. If you are not on now or anytime in the immediate future (as in now) you will miss a major hurdle and milestone. How many people wish they were. facebook advertising ninja? Well, linkedin is different, dynamic, and changing on a weekly basis. If you don’t get it now... it will be too late soon and you wont be able to stop the momentum of other businesses (that might be drastically inferior) crushing you.
Frustrated! Tired of app crashing constantly.
by Bunty1286 on 2018/09/27 02:56
This app constantly crashes on uploading posts with photos and video. The effort that it takes to write a post goes to waste as it crashes more than 90% of the time. I am using iPhone X, so hardware should not be an excuse for this issue. I would like to hear what the developers have to say about the problem. This problem has been an issue for at least last 2 years. I have installed the app multiple time but no luck. I don’t use the app anymore but sometime while traveling I have no other option. I am not sure why such a basic functionality is not resolved on this platform. Is it too hard for LinkedIn to figure this out?? Developers, can you provide me with an answer? UPDATE 1: Developer asked to submit a ticket on LinkedIn website with app version and iOS version.
BEWARE - Terrible customer service and awful refund policy.
by Lora2424 on 2017/12/02 07:34
I was tricked into paying $135(!!!) for a “premium” subscription that has absolutely no value to me. I assumed that the free trial would end because I never received a single email or notification about the upcoming subscription renewal after signing up for a free trial last month. I tried to find a place to cancel the subscription in the app and on the website with no luck. Now LinkedIn refuses to refund the payment. I am appalled. For a company that feigns interest in professional success, they have absolutely no sense of what providing good customer service entails. Auto renewing an expensive subscription without notice and without asking for permission is sneaky and conniving. Then refusing to refund the payment is insane. I am severely disappointed in LinkedIn and will be sure to warn my employees, colleagues, and friends.
Linkedin App is a must have for anyone in business at any level
by Keithrube1 on 2017/10/14 19:05
When Linkedin first introduced an app I’ll admit I was sceptical. I was leery because I’ve experienced many many websites attempting to make life easier with a new app and they fall on their face. This particular app is probably one of the easiest to maneuver and it allows me to stay connected easily with notifications and simple maneuvering around the site. I choose to be a Premier member and the benefits are well worth the money. I love linked in. I’ve become friends worldwide not only for the industry I’m in but also personal friends with multitudes or different interests. Get the app.
Horrible user continuity and takes advantage of user data
by Lena Kay on 2019/02/21 18:30
I use LinkedIn on my Mac computer all the time and used to be signed in to the app on my previous iPhone. When getting a new phone, every other app was able to use facial detection to let me sign in, while LinkedIn was the ONLY app to reject my facial recognition and force me to take a “not a robot” test to collect AI data on if users can identify pictures. Is it necessary for me to take this free data AI collection test for Microsoft/LinkedIn over and over again every time I get my password wrong. Is there a reason why this is the only app that won’t accept my facial recognition, while every other app does, when moving from Mac to my iPhone to log in??? So annoying and ridiculous. Stop taking advantage of your users by forcing us to take AI tests for you to collect data.
Great but...
by Eagle33199 on 2018/11/28 16:11
The app is generally the only way I interact with LinkedIn, and it works well for what I need it. However, while I appreciate the alerts most of the time, ever since this last update I've gotten alerts several times a day. When opening the app, the alert ends up asking me if I know someone... And it's been the same individual every single time. And every time, I dismiss it because I don't know them. It's gotten to the point where I seriously want to turn off alerts for the app, which would significantly decrease it's usefulness. Up until this last update, it was just fine. Now it's begging for attention that I really don't want to give it.
What Happened?????
by Irie's Pie! on 2018/06/19 17:54
I lived LinkedIn until a few weeks ago when I started getting notifications and solicitation from them via my work email asking if I wanted to join our network. After joining, it didn’t make sense to me to have two professional LinkedIn accounts. Of course my personal account was more prominent with a complete profile and a vast network. Once I merged the accounts, that all disappeared!!! I was left with the account attached to my work email and no profile. I’ve been looking on the website to see if I can get this corrected, but as in most cases there isn’t a was to get “LinkedIn” to a real person!!! Not sure if I even want to re-build another profile and network!
Feedback complain
by rlrescue on 2018/05/24 19:34
Although a majority of the individuals I have connected with through this app respect the Proper use of the app to connect with others that wish to be connected with. There are a select few that feel this tool is best used for making cold sales calls. My issue is this there is no way in this app to report they are using your email address and emailing you separate of the LinkedIn app in an effort to get you to buy or purchase one of their products. The way they behave on LinkedIn may not violate the terms and conditions but there is no way to identify The problem of a separate email from your connection to the folks at Linkedin so they can’t go about dealing with them appropriately.
Please Fix
by Jarek Bannister on 2017/09/23 16:45
I am trying to connect to a lot of fitness professionals and it takes 10+ minutes for the requests to send after I clicked on it. Then if I switch screens it stops sending them. So I have to resend requests over and over. It also covers up the search bar so I can’t do anything else. Then when clicking the little circles to add someone it always will jump to their page because my fingers are too fat maybe making it less sensitive around the circle or making it a bigger button would be better. It just is a nuisance and I can’t get back because the back button is covered up by the requests being sent pop up. Fix those problems and I’d say 5 star.
I cannot stand it
by Tootoon31 on 2018/09/10 11:20
Although the app is good in general, it just constantly fails to load contents. The different pages either don’t update or load partially or just don’t load at all! Sometimes I want to type a message to someone or update my profile, only to find out later that the message was lost or the updates were not made. It’s happening on both my iPhone and iPad. I’ve contacted the support team several times, each time they seem to fix the problem but only for a few days. It keeps coming back! I’m even a premium member but that doesn’t seem to make any difference, it’s just so frustrating. I’m starting to use other means like Glassdoor more and more... Conclusion: the app can be great but for me it’s totally unreliable, I just can’t recommend it for anyone who needs to seriously work with it.
LinkedIn would repo your house for not answering the door
by szshen on 2019/04/03 11:28
My account was restricted, allegedly because someone answered “I don’t know this person” even though I have only sent invitations to people suggested by LinkedIn (whom I do know). I then had to upload a photo of a driver’s license and customer support had the gall to call it a “one-time” favor to lift the restriction, as if they were being just so magnanimous for doing it. If you want pictures of IDs, just say it when we register for an account instead of making up this BS. Since then, the app will log me out randomly when I click on various links, as well as show incorrect data such as no connections or pending invitations or messages. Is it realistic that I can get someone’s account locked for asking them to connect and then answering “I don’t know this person”?
Stop with the excessive notifications
by Jh5320 on 2018/10/15 12:52
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.
Completely irresponsible with push notifications
by Fraxtil on 2017/10/03 18:51
I've turned off notifications for everything except the few things I care about (invitations to connect, messages, anything else that pertains directly to me). I still receive push notifications for superfluous events like "trending news articles" on a daily basis. The app is designed to have as many notification types as possible, and I've turned off more obscure notifications than I can remember. If you turn one off, the notification settings linked from the dismissed message only shows you what you've turned off, with no option to turn off all the other notifications you'll eventually receive. Completely irresponsible and annoying. I'll be reserving LinkedIn for the desktop from now on.
LinkedIn Customer Support Not Good
by Bcxxxxxx on 2018/10/08 19:34
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.
Quit messing with the app!
by donnaray on 2017/11/20 03:46
And STOP asking me to link my contacts—never going to happen in a million years! I give up... What happened to the swipe feature to ignore/delete people whom I don’t want to send an invite to?? UPDATE: The response from LinkedIn makes absolutely no sense! I’m not asking for some new “improvement”—I want them to return to the logical functionality the app used to have. Do they honestly expect people to keep scrolling through this exhaustive list of names of others they don’t want to connect with, without a deletion method??? UPDATE 2: The latest response from LinkedIn still makes no sense! Again, this is not some kind of “new improvement” I’m requesting. It’s the way the app USED to work and NOW the functionality is GONE. PLEASE BRING IT BACK!!!! UPDATE 3: Thank you for bringing back the feature of being able to “x” the people I don’t want to connect with. But, the new huge box layout is awful because you see less people on the screen at once and can’t read as much about them without clicking on their profile. Just put it back to the way it used to be please!!
Hate the new suggestion function
by hhjjcce on 2017/10/30 03:48
I got lots of people connect to me. I used to be able to accept most of hem quickly and now it kept pop up suggestions. Is annoying and interpreting the task I was trying to complete. Hate it. Please remove it! Also, you should have a function to allow people to make note to the connection and also auto record when I connect. eg I go to conference today so everyone I added today is from the conference. The pain point is that you don't remember where and how you met the person. Or when you go to conference, you add tons of people, when you are home and trying to recall who you met today, you open your LinkedIn, there is no easy way to find them anymore!
Only One Problem
by General Malaise on 2018/08/18 14:36
I gave LinkedIn’s latest mobile app 5 Stars because “in general” I believe it deserves it. However, although it might be only happening on my iPhone 6sPlus, I have the following bug: When I first open the app, (Main Screen), the animated icon that used to appear at the top of the screen informing that there are New Posts is gone. If it’s not just my phone then it should be an easy fix. When it’s back then the 5 Stars will be fully deserved. Other than that, after 10 years, LinkedIn remains my Primary Social Media site.
Mobile is inferior to desktop version
by Charlex123 on 2019/04/03 13:26
I find LinkenIn a valuable way to connect professionally. I like the convenience of being able to access my account on my laptop or through the app. The mobile app has issues though, primarily that the news feed can not be displayed chronologically with “most recent” instead of the algorithm-determined “top stories”. The value of this network is seeing what people are doing now and what events are coming up. Eliminating the ability to view the feed by recent posts makes the mobile app useless for me. Please change the app to display the feed is chronological order. This is not Facebook.
Poor customer service
by joyofthelord12 on 2019/04/09 13:36
So this is the third review I am writing, my first two were taken down. Again my issue is a simple one. 1. Make the “X” to click off a potential contact a bit larger so I am not opening one instead of deleting it. 2. If I delete someone don’t put them back in the suggested contacts over and over and over and over. They should not ever appear again. Two simple fixes to two problems with linked in. Additional problem that was not in my first two reviews: 3. Don’t delete my review because you don’t like it. 3/9/19 Update: Keeps getting worse. Nothing has been fixed and the little “x” seems harder to click. I don’t want to click on the “x” just to have it open someone’s profile. It is a false click. I am sure that is why I get so many “people are looking at your profile” notifications each week, the tiny “x” I will add another problem: 4. Half the time now I cannot open a profile I actually want to see. The program freezes and I need to close and reopen the app, then I need to TRY to find that persons again. Please, I implore you, please fix these small, but glaring, problems
Skills & Endorsements Section Error
by TAD_West on 2018/07/03 18:18
Since last week I couldn’t upload the resume nor the Skills & Endorsement Section due to a submission error on my IPhone nor IPad, via the app or browser, today I decide to try on the desktop. Well I was able to update the resume via desktop computer. The skills section that we’re giving me the previous errors via the app I guess did save despite error message. However, I noticed I still had 8 skills I could add, well it appears there’s just an overall error in this section. I’m currently receiving a similar error in saving on the desktop computer. I’ve logged in/out & it DID NOT save. I’ve taken a picture of the desktop error, and do not have the patience to attempt this on my phone at this time. #FRUSTRATED

LinkedIn is not only a valuable App for HR employment, but a hosts of hotbed for resourceful opinions, debates, surveys, photo opportunity to share artistic graphics, videography, referrals, links to professional articles, references for statistical data, release of emergence to innovation, announcements to special events / affairs, meetings, special hearings, celebrations, strategy huddles, military & law enforcement posts, economic & market status, and the Lists is inevitable! Aside from the trolls & ignoramus who occasionally re-emerge as nuisance, there still is a marvelous value of how much of an asset it’s grown with possibly greater tools in the future!
Disgusted
by rockinrodeoricky on 2018/05/21 21:25
You have this software written so that a person can only pick one area of expertise! I have worked in telecommunications for 20+ years, I have also worked on pneumatic tube systems that are used in drive through pharmaceuticals and banks and hospitals! Both of these job areas at the same time! I’ve had my own electronics business at the same time! I installed phone cabling and computer cable and know about different types of data transmission. I specialized in vacuum tube technology! A niche market for high-end audiophiles down to musicians who still use vacuum tube guitar amplifiers. I design my own music effects pedals and vacuum tube amplifiers! As far as I can see you offer no way of entering all of these talents and experience that I have. I’m very disappointed!
Okay but too many glitches
by Icebox_hop on 2018/01/28 05:27
At first I was really loving LinkedIn, but lately it has been logging me out and the telling me that the password I have saved is incorrect! It has logged me out in my phone as well as on my computer. It does it after maybe every 10 minutes. So it has been nearly impossible to search jobs and connections without being logged out every time. Therefore, I have become very disappointed in this program. Also I haven’t been able to submit my resume with easy apply so it has caused me to revert back to the normal search and go to original website method. There are just too many glitches preventing me from enjoying this program.
New update is crashing hard
by PaintPenclPaper on 2017/10/28 17:51
Hello, I actually really like this app but the latest update has completely crashed the platform. My profile and feed will not load at all. If I didn’t know better, I’d think that the latest update has erased my profile entirely. But having visited the desktop platform, I can tell that all of my info is safe. UPDATE 1:50pm : I can now login. And congrats on adding a much needed native video feature. But now the issues is that posts aren’t functioning as intended. It appears that you attempted to add a carousel feature for multiple image posts (which is great) but it doesn’t work. Only one image is visible once posted AND baldly cropped into a forced horizontal dimension. Then if I tap into enlarging the photo. It still only shows 1 photo and not the 3 that I posted. Another issue, is that I tried to revert to posting just a single photo but for some reason, that single photo fails to appear; only the post copy shows in the feed. Please fix the app. Almost there Thank you, B
Linked in has turned into Reddit
by A real RHONJ on 2019/03/14 10:49
If I want to watch a guy who lost 4 of his friends to suicide in one week, do push-ups on LinkedIn, well let’s just say I don’t. Why is it on LinkedIn? How is that going to help me get a job? I can go to Reddit or Facebook for that kind of people watching but don’t because I like to use my time to be productive. I am really disappointed how LinkedIn has turned into something unprofessional. I feel bad for the guy, don’t get me wrong, but LinkedIn is a career building website for professionals, not a me too movement for millennials or millennial want to be’s who use social media (LinkedIn is fast becoming junk social media) for 10 minutes of fame. Next you will start using these videos for paid advertising when they get a lot of hits.
LinkedIn is great except
by Caroline Carbaugh on 2019/04/19 22:29
I really enjoy this app and I remember first getting introduced to it when I was at a vocational transition program for the blind last year. For some reason, every time I hit connect on someone I know with the people you may know tab, it’s not give me the confirmation that people‘s invitations are on the way like it used to and I wish it would do that, I hope you can take the time to fix that bug as a blind person thank you so much otherwise for including the blind in making this app
LinkedIn is needed, but this app isn’t
by mmggaa1 on 2018/12/05 05:23
Everyone should be on linked in for business opportunities and to maintain connections to current and past colleagues. However the in your face, modal blocking forms, wizards, panes, to click or swipe through, and having to avoid their attempts at clicking a button you didn’t mean to, has forced me to remove this app once and for all!!! I might have used the app once a day to check the feed and maybe find useful work related news to read about. But the constant contact gathering windows, the “give me your contacts from your phone”, the “give me your email credentials” B*S* has left me no option but to uninstall the app. Now I will maybe go to the website once or twice a month. LINKEDIN, your contact gathering initiative has backfired terribly on you. You cannot use this app to do what you want to do (read news, find jobs, find people you know, etc) because LINKEDIN constantly tries to steer you into doing something else that is to add value to their business. Good riddance you terrible app and terrible product managers who turned it into this steaming mess.
Just another social media page
by Melpomm on 2018/05/24 19:23
I found this to be another Facebook with a “professional” quality. Unsecure, and of no value to gainful employment. While perusing comments on the articles in my feed, I found that at least half were the typical social media trolling comments, arguing for the sake of arguing! Quite immature, detracted from the professional aspect of this app quite a bit. Coupled with an article stating that an average of 86% of financial employers now question the validity and trustworthiness of all LinkedIn profiles...well, there isn’t much use for this app as I avoid social media like the plague! And I say unsecure because I allowed my information to be shown to employers & allow for potentials to contact me, and I’m now receiving numerous spam calls & texts a day.
Love LinkedIn, but the app violates my privacy settings
by Steel1943 on 2018/05/03 22:57
My LinkedIn app has been set up for years no not have access to my Contacts list on my iPhone. Well, was I sure surprised when the app made suggestions to me about what contacts ON MY PHONE who have LinkedIn accounts that I have not yet added to my connections list, and then suggested me to invite other contacts ... FROM MY PHONE ... to start LinkedIn accounts via the email addresses I have for them in my phone. Well, as much as I love the LinkedIn product (seriously, I'm happy with the amount of contacts I've received from recruiters lately for my specialty), this app is a privacy-disregarding piece of garbage, and may need to be reported to either Apple or, even worse, some sort of government agency.

Optimize for Tablet
by Mike D'Angelo on 2019/04/23 23:48
Almost every major platform out there has versions of their mobile apps optimized for phones and one for tablets. I am an avid user and fan, but cannot believe LinkedIn has not optimized their mobile app for tablets. You get the phone app stretched to full screen with all activity in the center and a lot of dead space on either side.
Yuck
by Integrity Review on 2019/04/23 22:54
Ads, upsells, click bait and lame “classes” all slow down and interrupt the conversation. Oh I spoke to their mobile team, and they admitted it’s ad impressions and daily click interactions that matter most. They nag you to upload your private address book so they can spam and sell it as a feature to advertisers.
Business account is a scam!
by Gums jejune on 2019/04/23 03:37
Didn’t even know I was signed up through iTunes and got a charge for 60$! Over 600$ a year for a social network that’s becoming more and more just like Facebook. What a waste!
App crashes and stops responding
by beelol9817 on 2019/04/21 10:19
I can access my messages my notifications and connection requests and but whenever I start to scroll down my timeline the app crashes and stops responding and this issue stays is like never ending now. Using linkedin on my windows since 6 months as there is no update to fix this problem.
Lack of help, never responds, lost hope.
by cazcino on 2019/04/20 21:24
I made the mistake of thinking this was a “helpful” site. I’ve been on LinkedIn almost a week now, & with no friends it’s kind of difficult to maneuver, as if that’s not bad enough tagging LinkedIn to ask em questions directly gets you nowhere, no response, none at at all. Even some of their members seem oblivious. If anyone has a better site/app anything, pls comment it I’d appreciate it.
Not a great app
by sitinbhaooy on 2019/04/20 18:51
I was so inspired by an interview with the CEO of Linked In. What a leader in an industry I thought!! I find linked In very restrictive. All I get is emails from the people in my profession. I want to connect to others who are inspiring doing innovative things, sharing new ideas in many areas. I have a work emails s cannot have a second email used to do other connections. I hope th CRO is listening he has some important changes to make this more relevant and useful

Split View & Slide Over Support for iPad Pro
by bcambas on 2019/04/20 12:30
Putting myself in LinkedIn’s shoes for a moment . . . I assume that the app is not the greatest value driver at LinkedIn, and I assume that priorities have shifted somewhat since the Microsoft acquisition to focus more on adding value to across the Microsoft ecosystem with newly available LinkedIn data, and I am confident that LinkedIn (and Microsoft for that matter) will eventually get around to producing “pro” apps for iOS enterprise license holders at some point (html signatures in Outlook?). My review here, therefore, should not be construed as a “complaint,” but rather as an expression of “disappointment”—when you ask a customer to pay $60-$120 per month for a premium service, you expect a premium (read: “efficient”) experience. Many professionals use iPads to do real work, and some portion of those professionals are among LinkedIn’s premium customers. Ensuring that your app is ready to take advantage of the latest features made available by the platform (iOS) utilized by a majority of your premium customers is the minimum LinkedIn should be doing to express its appreciation for this group—doing so would require minimal time and resources. Apps published by children have this feature; therefore, it seems reasonable to expect apps published by Silicon Valley Unicorns to be at least one order of magnitude more polished, modern, and efficient.

What did I buy for $29.99 a month?
by Crud-NOTokay on 2019/04/19 16:54
Unfortunately I have no idea how I signed up for this and would NEVER have agreed to pay this amount per month for a service I don’t need! Extremely disappointed since I have tried to cancel several times but can’t get my $$ back and still charging me every month. Extremely upset since I can’t afford this and now my bank account is near empty!

Obviously dominant career platform, BUT glitchy
by ddosch on 2019/04/18 22:12
Regular hiccups in interface with iOS/GBoard typing, and frequently fails to upload posts I put a lot of work into. No draft option means "failed to post" =deletion. Awful. Surprisingly bad for such an otherwise good, essential app.
Premium overpriced and complicated to cancel
by MrDJ759 on 2019/04/18 11:55
Premium is $60 after the free trial. I’m aware I read cancellation procedure and made a note on my calendar. LinkedIn website sends me to Apple. Which doesn’t give me the option to cancel. Unsure how to actually speak or reach customer service, Reach out to Apple who can’t help but I must use them to cancel. Now I am stuck with a feature that is helpful but not necessary. At 1 point it turned job searching off because I didn’t respond to the borderline “spam” offers I received. Never go premium complete waste that probably won’t help you get a job.
Feature Request🙏
by varunchunduru on 2019/04/18 01:39
Please add the option to sort news feed posts by "top" and "recent" respectively just like the LinkedIn website. Would like to get the latest news instead of seeing the same old top stories Everytime I get on the app. Thank you!!
Very frustrating to Log In
by maha2016 on 2019/04/17 14:48
Logging is is the more frustrating process vs any other major app. The “security check” (even when clicking all the boxes correctly) is a horrible experience.
Extremely confusing!
by 1961DBSN on 2019/04/16 15:10
I tried to use this app for more than a year and find the structure very confusing. Needs to be simplified for “not every day” users.
Connection issues
by Ocelad on 2019/04/16 13:48
The mobile app has sometimes connection issues.
Messages unusable for me
by Dvbillen on 2019/04/16 12:34
Get notifications of messages but then the app stops refreshing them. Have to go to the web app to have a conversation. Also too many useless notifications such that you end up ignoring the badge. I deleted it and just use the web app. UPDATE: I tried it again because the browser badgers me to use the app. Day 2 of using it and it thinks I have no internet connection even though I do and all other apps know it. This is a train wreck.
Fraudulent purchases
by mcanally2018 on 2019/04/16 01:11

Non-Functional
by kittykat2767 on 2019/04/15 02:01
When uploading my photo, whenever I’d click to save, nothing would happen. Then it glitched and kept saying that the photo upload had failed over and over in a notification. After trying to add more background to my profile, the same thing happened with the save button.
Extension of Facebook
by Cakid88 on 2019/04/14 18:59
I’ve had my LinkedIn account for several years, and made some good contacts, but recently it has turned into an extension of Facebook. The people that are posting FB crap don’t consider LinkedIn to be a professional platform, and don’t care.
Enjoying LinkedIn
by Singwingz on 2019/04/13 16:14
I am very happy to use LinkedIn. Sometimes the iPhone keyboard covers the LinkedIn comment I am writing and I have to write it blindly, post it, and then see if I made any mistakes.
Bleh
by LexTalionis53 on 2019/04/13 14:52
Unfollowing someone has no effect, no matter how many times I try. Hidden posts show up the next time I load the app. Tons of ads. “New posts available” are usually just ads. Now the app has stopped loading updates and requires that I reinstall it in order to restore functionality.
Account disappeared after medical leave.

My account and all my information, skills, Lynda.com certificates and recommendations completely disappeared. I was out on medical leave for 3 months and when I returned I tried logging into my account. It kept saying that my email address didn’t exist. I wanted to open a service request however to do so you have to be logged in. So I tried to create an account using my same email address. If my account existed, the account creation should have failed saying email address already exists or is being used but it didn’t. The account was created successfully. I opened a service request: [190312-003939]. All support keeps telling me is they cannot locate the account. They don’t seem to be very worried. There has to be database archives to locate the account prior to December 2018 so it can be restored. Disappointed in such poor support!
App availability
by techscene on 2019/04/13 03:06
This application should reach older versions on iOS, there are apps that will install the compatible for your device, and state that it is not the newest version, but it will still function.
NO SOLICITING
by NYCXI on 2019/04/12 20:00
I hate LinkedIn its just salespeople requesting to connect just so they can try and sell you their garbage products and services. The app design is fine besides the icons. I don’t know who designed or approved them but they are absolutely horrendous on both the app and even worse the website, it’s like they downloaded free ones off the internet and use low quality exports.
Can’t login with google auth anymore

App only allows LinkedIn login password. I can’t login anymore no matter what I try
Don’t trust this app
by Fentoozla on 2019/04/12 13:45
Got a text message from someone I had met in person and had absolutely no interaction or connection with on LinkedIn or anywhere online. Within 1 week received a LinkedIn email on suggested connections and who is on this email, the person who sent me a text. No thanks, go read someone else’s texts.
Crashing
by muffmouse on 2019/04/12 01:42
Ever since the update yesterday, I can't see the version cause it won't open, it keeps crashing.
Stupid and Buggy
by whoztawkin on 2019/04/10 23:48
Navigation with this app is a pain. It behaves and looks nothing like the web sight. It frequently hangs, crashes and loses or corrupt my data. I'm not going to waste anymore time.
Fixed!
by DontnoD on 2019/04/10 17:01
Iphone Xs max. Cannot post as top of screen is overlapped with pull down menu. Cannot cancel as left side is overlapped with clock. Thanks for fixing the app!
App hasn’t worked in months
by kittlin67 on 2019/04/10 13:38
I have used Linked In and Sales Navigator for years, but now my activity has dramatically decreased because the app never works. Every day for the last six months or so, my page won’t load and I get a message that it’s not me and to try again later. I have re installed the app and same thing. Linked in customer service is notoriously bad so I guess I’m just out of luck. Not a very good example of a business platform when the app doesn’t work.

Responding to recruiters new feature is terrible
by unnecessary change on 2019/04/09 23:46
In the past when I was contacted by a recruiter in my message inbox, I could respond directly to the recruiter. Now, the app forces you to respond whether or not you are interested in the job before you have a chance to respond. To me this is a 100% unnecessary feature and is an unprofessional way to contact a recruiter to express interest. The right way to treat a recruiter is to write that person directly and let them know your intentions, perhaps including some background for your decision. This can help keep communication channels open in the future and is a networking opportunity. This new feature is a result of someone “overthinking” the situation. This goes back to the old saying, “If its not broke, don't fix it”
Can’t share profile link
by Alpha&0mega on 2019/04/09 21:18
Why is it not possible to share my profile url or covert my profile to PDF within the app? It’s easy to do with PC.
LinkedIn premium charge
by Eeshwar Ponnala on 2019/04/09 19:20
I tried using LinkedIn premium free trial for a month, was on a weekend trip with family, phone battery was dead so didn’t checked the subscription end date. I cancelled my subscription ASAP and contacted both LinkedIn, Apple unfortunately none of them says they are responsible. Didn’t refunded the charge contacted which I cancelled within a day. Not customer friendly.
I hate LinkedIn
by s.m.m.4.2.0. on 2019/04/09 15:05
I’ll say it again. I hate LinkedIn. It is so frustrating that it feels like you need to have a profile to validate your professional presence and experience. The platform is clunky and inelegant, I don’t understand why it’s a GD trial every time you ever try to log in, and on top of that I constantly have fifty thousand notifications about missed messages and activity that are actually NOTHING. I have to maintain my organization’s page as well, so I am unfortunately on the site often enough to keep my inbox clear, and yet the app and the site are always bombarding me with notifications and flags about activity that is not even real. Stop the fake notifications! I dream of a future where LinkedIn is irrelevant and gone.
Poor customer service
by joyofthelord12 on 2019/04/09 13:36
So this is the third review I am writing, my first two were taken down. Again my issue is a simple one. 1. Make the “X” to click off a potential contact a bit larger so I am not opening one instead of deleting it. 2. If I delete someone don’t put them back in the suggested contacts over and over and over and over. They should not ever appear again. Two simple fixes to two problems with linked in. Additional problem that was not in my first two reviews: 3. Don’t delete my review because you don’t like it. 3/9/19 Update: Keeps getting worse. Nothing has been fixed and the little “x” seems harder to click. I don’t want to click on the “x” just to have it open someone’s profile. It is a false click. I am sure that is why I get so many “people are looking at your profile” notifications each week, the tiny “x” I will add another problem: 4. Half the time now I cannot open a profile I actually want to see. The program freezes and I need to close and reopen the app, then I need to TRY to find that persons again. Please, I implore you, please fix these small, but glaring, problems
Constant Badge App Icon for no reason
by MattOBMeraki on 2019/04/09 13:25
For as long as I can remember, the app has had a badge icon as if there is a notification of some sort. When entering the app, it will hold a badge on the networking tab, yet when you click it, there is no request or anything. I have uninstalled, reinstalled and signed in on a Pc to inspect my profile. Guess I’ll have to turn of badge app icons? Very annoying!
Good stuff
by sweetscorpion11 on 2019/04/09 12:40
Good app for connecting and networking. How come we can’t delete messages though? I feel this should be a standard feature.
Not bad, but...
by TyForSenate on 2019/04/09 12:24
The linked in app itself isn’t all that bad, but there’s got to be a way to get rid of that pull down window that’s always showing a small banner on top! It’s the window with 3 steps to get started on LinkedIn. First scroll page says “keep building your network”. It is extremely annoying and pops up every time you open the app, and doesn’t completely go away ever. It reappears as soon as you scroll back up in your feed. That’s the one thing keeping me from using the app more, I don’t need a little pop up deal blocking half my screen when I’m scrolling through my feed. Thanks, please get rid of it.
Help removing “Student Voices”
by Zphal on 2019/04/09 03:32
I used to love scrolling through my LinkedIn feed on my phone; sometimes more than FB because the content is more interesting. However, the new addition of the Student Voices bar takes up a ridiculous amount of real estate on my screen. I don’t even have an interest in the feature, yet I can’t find a way to disable it or remove it. It’s always there taking up space and annoying me! A little help please??
Crash problem

Biggest mistake was to reinstall it again
by Junaid Zafar on 2019/04/08 19:55
Have been a user of linkedin app but instead of getting better this app is touching the lowest of levels everyday. Keeps freezing and crashing on scrolling. Tried everything from reinstalling it to updating my iOS but nothing worked. If you can’t make it work please shut it down because we’ll be happy using the website version only.
Personally
by joeyjoey g on 2019/04/07 00:14
I guys comprised overrated Used vessels to put burst burdens with optimism and complied with skill and poise While unratting writer and people in educationed with friendliness and professionalism unestimating a person skills and abilities that range close or near your communicative skills glossed writhing American standards and claiming answers within my morals of self evaluation and study Simplify I think the forwardness is fake but apporiates to future needs within yourselves
Last update is unstable
by SG Golf Edge on 2019/04/06 12:20
Please either back out your last update or have it debugged again. The message history crashes and never loads. This never happened before. It even takes forever to log off. Every section that I open like Home, connections, alerts, nothing opens up. This is the first time in all Your updates that this has happened. Please fix.
Great website, great content, terrible app
by peacefulpink on 2019/04/06 12:04
You’d think for a company that thrives on networking for other companies would at least have the technical support to upkeep an app in the modern times. Unfortunately, the LinkedIn app is laced with bugs and it’s slower than most social media apps. I find the lagging leads to repeated postings, information isn’t saving, and I just realized I’ve wasted 15 minutes trying to update one component of my profile. Total waste of time. I’m new to LinkedIn in a sense, but I appreciate its efforts. Still, I think I’ll be sticking to their website version, not this poorly run app.
App Crashing

Update won’t download

Tried several times to download the most recent update on my iPad. Doesn’t do it.
Unnecessary security check
by Luisito1984 on 2019/04/05 23:11
I have tried to log in several times from the app itself, but every time I log in it takes me to a security page when I have to verify I am not a robot. Then after I pass with a 100% accuracy it takes me to another unnecessary step in which they have to send a security link to my email, then I will open this email with the SECURITY CHECK which it will take me to the mobile site which I don’t need to be taken to. Then i will go back to the app, and try to log in ONCE AGAIN, and guess what?...............it freaking happens again. Software Team please address this and fix it.
Horrible for job searches

The app is freezing at home/feed screen and controls are not working. No data on the feed screen and It is completely unresponsive. I deleted the app and reinstalled, still the same issue.
Horrible customer support
by Fireftr985 on 2019/04/04 15:32
App updated and now I can’t log in. Tells me to contact support. I do so, I some generic response from Micala. She tells me to provide information, I do so and try to log on from multiple other locations. No problems signing in anywhere else. I provide her with that information as requested and I get no response from anyone.
Duplicate messages

Mobile is inferior to desktop version
by Charlex123 on 2019/04/03 13:26
I find LinkenIn a valuable way to connect professionally. I like the convenience of being able to access my account on my laptop or through the app. The mobile app has issues though, primarily that the news feed can not be displayed chronologically with “most recent” instead of the algorithm-determined “top stories”. The value of this network is seeing what people are doing now and what events are coming up. Eliminating the ability to view the feed by recent posts makes the mobile app useless for me. Please change the app to display the feed is chronological order. This is not Facebook.
LinkedIn would repo your house for not answering the door
by szshen on 2019/04/03 11:28
My account was restricted, allegedly because someone answered “I don’t know this person” even though I have only sent invitations to people suggested by LinkedIn (whom I do know). I then had to upload a photo of a driver’s license and customer support had the gall to call it a “one-time” favor to lift the restriction, as if they were being just so magnanimous for doing it. If you want pictures of IDs, just say it when we register for an account instead of making up this BS. Since then, the app will log me out randomly when I click on various links, as well as show incorrect data such as no connections or pending invitations or messages. Is it realistic that I can get someone’s account locked for asking them to connect and then answering “I don’t know this person”?
App gets stuck!

Like a used car salesmen, but an app
by JonPaul2 on 2019/04/02 19:36
Same update message for months people...wake up. It’s the same recruiters offering the same pre-formatted messages to any who don’t change the default privacy settings. Oh, and let’s not forget this service tracks your browsing across Safari once installed (this the frequent updates to dance around Apple guidelines).
Inconsistent
by Supercharbie on 2019/03/31 22:10
The platform has become consistently glitchy. We have been unable to tag, unable to find profiles of important connections, experiencing diminished views of our posts, etc. It is a quagmire.

Freezes and Glitches

Frustrated
by asshatcrapapp on 2019/03/28 19:09
Used LinkedIn for a long time. Decided to try the “free” trial for sales navigator. I was disappointed that it didn’t seem to link to my regular account for some reason. When I tried to cancel the app I found it ridiculously annoying to try to do so. Had to email customer support. They Said my email wasn’t registered so after figuring all this out I get billed 80.00 for a service I never used and now don’t have the app for and apple won’t refund my money. And now I have to try 8 million nicknames to even post this ..🤦🏻‍♂️
Sometimes annoying
by Marc 52805327632984 on 2019/03/27 11:59
I don’t like it when I read an interesting story at the top of my news feed from overnight when my screen automatically refreshes the story vanishes so far down that I can’t find it.
Sharing posts

The update makes the app crash when you try sharing posts. So the app is useless!
Roped into premium

worst self-service experience
by worst self-service experience on 2019/03/26 20:04
LinkedIn made me log into iTunes, a completely different app and provider to cancel. Why? I never use iTunes. I should be able to cancel directly from LinkedIn. They ended up getting an extra month or so of fees out of me. Never again!
Bug on my app
by Fx665 on 2019/03/26 17:59
I have over a month with a bug on my app. There’s always a notification on my pending invitation tab even though there are no invitations pending. I tried deleting it and downloading it again and it didn’t work. Always check for updates that hasn’t helped either. Please fix this. Thanks!
The app shuts down (crashes) when I open the messages
by Abdulrahman Alkhodair on 2019/03/26 16:13
I’ve been facing this issue for a while now. Whenever I get messages on LinkedIn and try to respond to them using the app, the apps shuts me down. Every time I need. To respond to someone on linked in, I have to use my laptop. I looked for an update, my app is already updated. My phone, is updated. This issue becoming frustrating. My phone is updated, the app is updated, yet the problem still exist. And I found out that I am not the only one according the reviewer on App Store. So I would suggest that you update the App and solve this issue for everyone instead of having us all come here to write about it, and you suggest solutions that don’t work.
Messages with large content issues
by DrJD2019 on 2019/03/26 15:32
After the most recent update, I encountered an app disconnect/collapse issue when I click on a colleague message that has a large text content. Other light messages are fine.
Notifications aren’t accurate
by alisacullison on 2019/03/26 11:13
LinkedIn will show a red notification bubble on the app but when I click into the notifications screen, there is nothing there.
Suggestion
by Senorita1 on 2019/03/25 21:39
Thanks for improving the application i think we need to send videos sometimes in the conversation which is not enabled in the messages between contacts. I can only send images and audio but cant send any videos.
one problem
by soopkr on 2019/03/25 00:13
I’m mostly enjoying the app but have one problem - while scrolling through my feed I tend to accidentally like a post. This never happens with other similar social apps but happened a few times with linked in. It makes me less comfortable using the app to browse my feed.
No internet connection???
by nihits on 2019/03/23 16:53
I do have internet connection.. your app does not “link”... update: I found it was due to the settings: linked in app had cellular data turned off.

Glitchy App
by Harrison2722 on 2019/03/22 15:55
This app is full of glitches from “hundreds of failed to upload photo” notifications, (even though my photo was uploaded?), to suddenly switching pages. I was interested in trying it out. But not anymore. Needs a lot of work before I’m willing to try again.

App freezes
by jigsaw4544 on 2019/03/22 10:46
For such a big name you have the worst application I’ve ever seen, it has been so long and you guys haven’t fixed this issue. Every time i open the application it would freeze after scrolling couple of posts. It’s not like it happens once in a while, it would do the same all day long. If you guys don’t have efficient developers then use your own platform to find some one who can fix this issue.
Insecure app
by AnnoyedLJD on 2019/03/22 04:39
The update password settings page in the app doesn’t allow you to paste passwords, breaking password managers like LastPass making it very hard to secure your account.
Good service, terrible app
by Nacthemife95 on 2019/03/22 03:50
LinkedIn is a professional necessity but the app is awful. They have deliberately made it difficult to sign out, and that is a huge security flaw. The app also posts outdated information, often again and again. Dump the app. Use the web interface.
Hard to use web site makes me close account
by Bean1268 on 2019/03/21 16:37
I simply wanted to log out of my account through the web. NO I don’t want to download the app. It wouldn’t let me sign out so I closed my account. I can’t even send messages without paying money? Ugh. LinkedIn has turned to trash. So frustrating to use so don’t even bother.

Split View & Slide Over Support for iPad Pro
by bcambas on 2019/04/20 12:30
Putting myself in LinkedIn’s shoes for a moment . . . I assume that the app is not the greatest value driver at LinkedIn, and I assume that priorities have shifted somewhat since the Microsoft acquisition to focus more on adding value to across the Microsoft ecosystem with newly available LinkedIn data, and I am confident that LinkedIn (and Microsoft for that matter) will eventually get around to producing “pro” apps for iOS enterprise license holders at some point (html signatures in Outlook?). My review here, therefore, should not be construed as a “complaint,” but rather as an expression of “disappointment”—when you ask a customer to pay $60-$120 per month for a premium service, you expect a premium (read: “efficient”) experience. Many professionals use iPads to do real work, and some portion of those professionals are among LinkedIn’s premium customers. Ensuring that your app is ready to take advantage of the latest features made available by the platform (iOS) utilized by a majority of your premium customers is the minimum LinkedIn should be doing to express its appreciation for this group—doing so would require minimal time and resources. Apps published by children have this feature; therefore, it seems reasonable to expect apps published by Silicon Valley Unicorns to be at least one order of magnitude more polished, modern, and efficient.
Premium is a waste of money
by Sm1tty82 on 2019/03/15 17:51
I’ve used LinkedIn for years, but only ever had the usual free account. It served the purpose, put myself out there. Now fast forward to today, I’m on LinkedIn more often as I search for my next career opportunity. Still a free account, I saw the attention I was getting when applying, how often I was coming up in searches. I went ahead and got the Premium, but noticed no change in my stats that indicate it is worth the money. On a free account I would appear about 30 times a week in searches. With Premium, still 30 times a week. Knowing where I rank compared to every one else and how my skills stack up to the posted position does not add a lot of value. Nice to know, but not for $30 a month. On a side note, even when I was 10/10 on skills I still got one of those “Sorry, we are perusing others...”. So the value of knowing where you stand isn’t high. Now to the app, there are 2 things I like. The job search feature is easy to use, and great that it saves previous criteria. I also like how each tab works independently. So my homepage is where I left it, jobs page is where I left it and I can go back and forth while keeping my place. Might not seem like a big deal, until you don’t have something similar.
Non professional operating system for an app based on professionalism
by jnels223 on 2019/02/22 15:01
I had created and maintained a linkedin account for years, however unfortunately created my account with an email address that I can no longer access. I have tried for, I kid you not, months, to re set my email so I can maintain the hundreds of connections I’ve made with this app in the past. Not only does the service crash every single time I try providing my drivers license to reset the email account, but when I finally found an email to contact linkedin directly about the problem, I have yet to receive a response. And as today when I decided to bite the bullet and create a new account, the app presents to me an “error” once again and I am unable to create a new account. I am horribly disappointed at the lack of customer support and frankly find it quite ironic that a site would hinge its function on professionalism yet not provide a customer support number to call and speak to a person about issues such as mine. I am a recent graduate in a location where my field is flooded, so any app or networking site is crucial for me. Low and behold, Linkedin seems bent on skirting around issues related to their app and the customers suffering because of it. Truly disappointed.
Serious VoiceOver accessibility problems
by Lisa cushman on 2018/03/27 05:14
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
by MermaidGaby on 2018/03/30 23:11
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.
Chronological content feed - second attempt.
by Mike O PhD on 2018/12/14 00:13
LinkedIn... I love your platform. I have already posted a comment on the lack of a sort by “recent” function on for iOS. When I’m on my phone, the work around is to go to your mobile site, then request the desktop site, then select “sort by: recent”. The most recent update you just pushed out now has “lives” or something that feels like a clone of Instagram/YouTube/Snapchat/Facebook, etc. I do not subscribe to these platforms because I believe LinkedIn is the only social media platform of any substance. There is quality content and networking happening everyday. Why did your newest update add a cookie-cutter “lives” function and not a simple “sort by:recent” function. Why am I seeing 3 week old posts with recent posts scattered about. Totally ridiculous... The one platform I thought was doing a service to a community of professional people is slowly becoming just another social media platform.
LinkedIn is more then just a social media app
by karen.yates02 on 2017/11/17 13:26
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
by M Kutman on 2018/01/16 01:51
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
by NancyMoiseHaws on 2018/01/12 13:07
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.
by Effthisnickname on 2018/09/13 01:23
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.
Terrible Update for New Jobseekers!!
by Dulce CaraBella on 2018/11/24 16:01
Why is the current company name for occupation now forced in the headline with the job title!?!? What about those of us that are currently seeking other jobs while still working at the current position??? This is a terrible thing, we should have the option to not have the company name on our headlines if we don’t want it! So disappointed. I was getting so many job opportunity inbox messages from recruiters with my customized headline before this terrible update, I was wondering why I hadn’t seen any inbox messages recently and now I know why, since you removed my customized headline and added the company I currently work for I don’t standout to recruiters anymore and I’m not getting any leads, my headline looks just like everybody else’s headline therefore recruiters don’t even notice me anymore because my headline doesn’t standout like it use to. Change it back please!
iPhone X
by Johnnyboy1960 on 2017/12/20 16:50
Number one, if your application in the Apple IDs door would support a dialog box when selecting apps support I would be writing this in that dialog box and not under reviews. My review is based on the fact that Face ID is not used by LinkedIn. LinkedIn‘s responses leave your app signed in. I do not wish to do that, the information in the app is too private for me to take LinkedIn suggestion. The technology for Face ID has been incorporated to I would say 70 percent of the applications at this point, so it tells me that updating your app to use this functionality cannot be that difficult. I’ll be waiting for the Face ID recognition in your app soon. I would use your out more by not having to manually put in my password, holding the phone to your face makes my motivation to use your application what greater than having to use my large fingers To type in my password. Thank you, John
Freezes, Can’t apply for jobs, links don’t work! NEEDS THE TO BE FIXED!
by Xtyna Yee on 2019/01/09 19:15
I’ve heard so many people speak highly of LinkedIn, so I tried it out. Unfortunately this app does NOT work, as it needs serious updates. When you try to apply for any of the job listing your are given the option to give permission to attach your LinkedIn profile in replace or your resume, it does NOT work. Once you click you get a white screen or when it does go through to the next screen where it will ask for your name and contact info it freezes. Therefore you can not apply for any of their job listings. So I look up the company on google to find their website and then apply that way with my own resume. The only thing LinkedIn is good for right now is to locate a job listing. Then apply on their site. I gave 1 star because at least they still proved job listing I can apply to on the companies web site directly.
Professional Networking Tool
by Candy_Girl80'sbaby on 2018/10/24 02:58
LinkedIn is my preferred way to interact with business professionals. I do, however, wish that the site would allow a longer time to deactivate an account or allow one to restore their account within a year. I deactivated my account for a “spiritual hiatus” and attempted to set my account back up and was unable to retrieve it. I built a great network before and now it seems like I am not getting as many recommendations for people that I knew from college and other businesses. 😏 I’m sure my post sounds like a combination of great things and not so great things, but I do really appreciate the fact that the tool is much more professional than most social media outlets.
Responding to recruiters new feature is terrible
by unnecessary change on 2019/04/09 23:46
In the past when I was contacted by a recruiter in my message inbox, I could respond directly to the recruiter. Now, the app forces you to respond whether or not you are interested in the job before you have a chance to respond. To me this is a 100% unnecessary feature and is an unprofessional way to contact a recruiter to express interest. The right way to treat a recruiter is to write that person directly and let them know your intentions, perhaps including some background for your decision. This can help keep communication channels open in the future and is a networking opportunity. This new feature is a result of someone “overthinking” the situation. This goes back to the old saying, “If its not broke, don't fix it”
Horrible interface
by SquidlyMan on 2017/10/31 15:30
This is a perfect example of what NOT to do in mobile app design. 1. Useless messenger button that does nothing but try and get you to download the app by popping not one, but two screens (if you don’t have it). I won’t load Facebook Messenger because it won’t let me select no tracking without constantly being harassed. 2. Extremely small “x” for closing annoying ad windows so that if you have any normal or larger than normal finger (god forbid you try and use your thumb) then you end up opening the item instead. 3. Allowing you to block some advertisers for only 30-Days at a time??? Seriously. If it wasn’t bad enough that you show me adds from advertisers I’ve already blocked, now you’re unblocking them after 30 Days?? 4. Extremely small “x” for closing annoying recommended groups windows so that if you have any normal or larger than normal finger (god forbid you try and use your thumb) then you end up opening the item instead. Can I just get you to stop recommending stuff to me? I’m not sure what algorithm you use but the recommendations are horrible. 5. Translations are rarely ever correct. Give up here and just license Google’s translator. I’m not saying Google Translate is good, but it would at least be correct more than your translations are. There are more, I’m sure. But we will stop here.
Good app
by Nickname is already taken 3 on 2018/09/28 03:44
I really like LinkedIn because it’s social media kept professional. A suggestion I’d make that would help recruiters find and connect with talent is to add a salary requirement to the “jobs settings”. I get contacted by so many recruiters and each time they contact me about a position I talk to them for about 30 minutes just to find out they want to offer me a job that pays me 25-50% less than my current salary. It’s a complete waste of my time and the recruiter’s time as well. Another thing I’d recommend is providing recruiters a service that lets them know what is the median salary for the position they are trying to hire for so they understand how much professionals earn in their industry and position.
Good app but bad recent changes
by mugnum_parts on 2019/03/08 22:38
LinkedIn is a great professional app and I love how I can work on my career and look for opportunities using it! Haven’t had any weird glitches with it yet that downgraded my experience. I do have to deduct some points though for recent changes. The messages button was moved to the upper right and in its place on the bottom middle of the screen is the add a post button. This seems like a worse UI experience because I know I check and respond to messages far more than I post up a message and it’s kinda awkward to move the messages button up there. I also find that I can’t swipe to the right to go back to the last page I was on. Instead, I usually have to tap the back arrow in the upper left, which again, could be improved.
Creepy app. Should be illegal to require LiN training
by AppTasticUpdate on 2019/03/16 04:10
Devs, dont think im following your shady & creepy links to follow up w this review that also track me across the internet you stalkers w your creepy site apis on weird websites that add it & will dox me/ip & other people without opt IN CONSENT. You all are creeps! You all are stalker people farmers bros. Enjoy your career at a people farmer. Should be illegal for my company to require LiN (lynda etc) to do corporate training! This company provides discriminatory algorithms to HR for ‘up and coming’ (..right?) as well as demographic data that is illegal to have for hiring. ...they are also a surveillance capitalist people farmer that has no place collecting my pii in my place of work! Aside from this new revelation after giving up LiN bc it’s nothing more than a chest beating fb bro boy crap fest reincarnate now that everyone expects you to be on to show your network??? lol lemmings, this entire company is shady.
Watch out for Premium Trial!!
by GREEK 2U on 2018/05/11 23:24
The mobile version lacks so many of the desktop version features such as privacy features and profile customization. However, what really bothers me is that LinkedIn uses this difference to their financial advantage so you cannot cancel a Premium subscription from your device even if they allow you to subscribe from your phone easily. You also get no notification when the Premium trial is ending so you get charged abruptly. If you miss the subscription cancellation date, LinkedIn will offer no refunds even if late by an hour!! Really? Update: The LinkedIn team reached out to me as shown below to offer support. Alas, it was all just lip service. When I reached out, they simply confirmed the limitations I had originally complained about without any real assistance offered.
#1 business platform for a reason
by PhilHowardSales on 2017/12/02 15:41
With a perfect domain score and understanding that 1:3 of the business world is on Linkedin... why would you not have this app and remain connected with potential new clients, leads, comments on your articles etc. If you are not on now or anytime in the immediate future (as in now) you will miss a major hurdle and milestone. How many people wish they were. facebook advertising ninja? Well, linkedin is different, dynamic, and changing on a weekly basis. If you don’t get it now... it will be too late soon and you wont be able to stop the momentum of other businesses (that might be drastically inferior) crushing you.
Frustrated! Tired of app crashing constantly.
by Bunty1286 on 2018/09/27 02:56
This app constantly crashes on uploading posts with photos and video. The effort that it takes to write a post goes to waste as it crashes more than 90% of the time. I am using iPhone X, so hardware should not be an excuse for this issue. I would like to hear what the developers have to say about the problem. This problem has been an issue for at least last 2 years. I have installed the app multiple time but no luck. I don’t use the app anymore but sometime while traveling I have no other option. I am not sure why such a basic functionality is not resolved on this platform. Is it too hard for LinkedIn to figure this out?? Developers, can you provide me with an answer? UPDATE 1: Developer asked to submit a ticket on LinkedIn website with app version and iOS version.
BEWARE - Terrible customer service and awful refund policy.
by Lora2424 on 2017/12/02 07:34
I was tricked into paying $135(!!!) for a “premium” subscription that has absolutely no value to me. I assumed that the free trial would end because I never received a single email or notification about the upcoming subscription renewal after signing up for a free trial last month. I tried to find a place to cancel the subscription in the app and on the website with no luck. Now LinkedIn refuses to refund the payment. I am appalled. For a company that feigns interest in professional success, they have absolutely no sense of what providing good customer service entails. Auto renewing an expensive subscription without notice and without asking for permission is sneaky and conniving. Then refusing to refund the payment is insane. I am severely disappointed in LinkedIn and will be sure to warn my employees, colleagues, and friends.
Linkedin App is a must have for anyone in business at any level
by Keithrube1 on 2017/10/14 19:05
When Linkedin first introduced an app I’ll admit I was sceptical. I was leery because I’ve experienced many many websites attempting to make life easier with a new app and they fall on their face. This particular app is probably one of the easiest to maneuver and it allows me to stay connected easily with notifications and simple maneuvering around the site. I choose to be a Premier member and the benefits are well worth the money. I love linked in. I’ve become friends worldwide not only for the industry I’m in but also personal friends with multitudes or different interests. Get the app.
Horrible user continuity and takes advantage of user data
by Lena Kay on 2019/02/21 18:30
I use LinkedIn on my Mac computer all the time and used to be signed in to the app on my previous iPhone. When getting a new phone, every other app was able to use facial detection to let me sign in, while LinkedIn was the ONLY app to reject my facial recognition and force me to take a “not a robot” test to collect AI data on if users can identify pictures. Is it necessary for me to take this free data AI collection test for Microsoft/LinkedIn over and over again every time I get my password wrong. Is there a reason why this is the only app that won’t accept my facial recognition, while every other app does, when moving from Mac to my iPhone to log in??? So annoying and ridiculous. Stop taking advantage of your users by forcing us to take AI tests for you to collect data.
Great but...
by Eagle33199 on 2018/11/28 16:11
The app is generally the only way I interact with LinkedIn, and it works well for what I need it. However, while I appreciate the alerts most of the time, ever since this last update I've gotten alerts several times a day. When opening the app, the alert ends up asking me if I know someone... And it's been the same individual every single time. And every time, I dismiss it because I don't know them. It's gotten to the point where I seriously want to turn off alerts for the app, which would significantly decrease it's usefulness. Up until this last update, it was just fine. Now it's begging for attention that I really don't want to give it.
What Happened?????
by Irie's Pie! on 2018/06/19 17:54
I lived LinkedIn until a few weeks ago when I started getting notifications and solicitation from them via my work email asking if I wanted to join our network. After joining, it didn’t make sense to me to have two professional LinkedIn accounts. Of course my personal account was more prominent with a complete profile and a vast network. Once I merged the accounts, that all disappeared!!! I was left with the account attached to my work email and no profile. I’ve been looking on the website to see if I can get this corrected, but as in most cases there isn’t a was to get “LinkedIn” to a real person!!! Not sure if I even want to re-build another profile and network!
Feedback complain
by rlrescue on 2018/05/24 19:34
Although a majority of the individuals I have connected with through this app respect the Proper use of the app to connect with others that wish to be connected with. There are a select few that feel this tool is best used for making cold sales calls. My issue is this there is no way in this app to report they are using your email address and emailing you separate of the LinkedIn app in an effort to get you to buy or purchase one of their products. The way they behave on LinkedIn may not violate the terms and conditions but there is no way to identify The problem of a separate email from your connection to the folks at Linkedin so they can’t go about dealing with them appropriately.
Please Fix
by Jarek Bannister on 2017/09/23 16:45
I am trying to connect to a lot of fitness professionals and it takes 10+ minutes for the requests to send after I clicked on it. Then if I switch screens it stops sending them. So I have to resend requests over and over. It also covers up the search bar so I can’t do anything else. Then when clicking the little circles to add someone it always will jump to their page because my fingers are too fat maybe making it less sensitive around the circle or making it a bigger button would be better. It just is a nuisance and I can’t get back because the back button is covered up by the requests being sent pop up. Fix those problems and I’d say 5 star.
I cannot stand it
by Tootoon31 on 2018/09/10 11:20
Although the app is good in general, it just constantly fails to load contents. The different pages either don’t update or load partially or just don’t load at all! Sometimes I want to type a message to someone or update my profile, only to find out later that the message was lost or the updates were not made. It’s happening on both my iPhone and iPad. I’ve contacted the support team several times, each time they seem to fix the problem but only for a few days. It keeps coming back! I’m even a premium member but that doesn’t seem to make any difference, it’s just so frustrating. I’m starting to use other means like Glassdoor more and more... Conclusion: the app can be great but for me it’s totally unreliable, I just can’t recommend it for anyone who needs to seriously work with it.
LinkedIn would repo your house for not answering the door
by szshen on 2019/04/03 11:28
My account was restricted, allegedly because someone answered “I don’t know this person” even though I have only sent invitations to people suggested by LinkedIn (whom I do know). I then had to upload a photo of a driver’s license and customer support had the gall to call it a “one-time” favor to lift the restriction, as if they were being just so magnanimous for doing it. If you want pictures of IDs, just say it when we register for an account instead of making up this BS. Since then, the app will log me out randomly when I click on various links, as well as show incorrect data such as no connections or pending invitations or messages. Is it realistic that I can get someone’s account locked for asking them to connect and then answering “I don’t know this person”?
Stop with the excessive notifications
by Jh5320 on 2018/10/15 12:52
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.
Completely irresponsible with push notifications
by Fraxtil on 2017/10/03 18:51
I've turned off notifications for everything except the few things I care about (invitations to connect, messages, anything else that pertains directly to me). I still receive push notifications for superfluous events like "trending news articles" on a daily basis. The app is designed to have as many notification types as possible, and I've turned off more obscure notifications than I can remember. If you turn one off, the notification settings linked from the dismissed message only shows you what you've turned off, with no option to turn off all the other notifications you'll eventually receive. Completely irresponsible and annoying. I'll be reserving LinkedIn for the desktop from now on.
LinkedIn Customer Support Not Good
by Bcxxxxxx on 2018/10/08 19:34
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.
Quit messing with the app!
by donnaray on 2017/11/20 03:46
And STOP asking me to link my contacts—never going to happen in a million years! I give up... What happened to the swipe feature to ignore/delete people whom I don’t want to send an invite to?? UPDATE: The response from LinkedIn makes absolutely no sense! I’m not asking for some new “improvement”—I want them to return to the logical functionality the app used to have. Do they honestly expect people to keep scrolling through this exhaustive list of names of others they don’t want to connect with, without a deletion method??? UPDATE 2: The latest response from LinkedIn still makes no sense! Again, this is not some kind of “new improvement” I’m requesting. It’s the way the app USED to work and NOW the functionality is GONE. PLEASE BRING IT BACK!!!! UPDATE 3: Thank you for bringing back the feature of being able to “x” the people I don’t want to connect with. But, the new huge box layout is awful because you see less people on the screen at once and can’t read as much about them without clicking on their profile. Just put it back to the way it used to be please!!
Hate the new suggestion function
by hhjjcce on 2017/10/30 03:48
I got lots of people connect to me. I used to be able to accept most of hem quickly and now it kept pop up suggestions. Is annoying and interpreting the task I was trying to complete. Hate it. Please remove it! Also, you should have a function to allow people to make note to the connection and also auto record when I connect. eg I go to conference today so everyone I added today is from the conference. The pain point is that you don't remember where and how you met the person. Or when you go to conference, you add tons of people, when you are home and trying to recall who you met today, you open your LinkedIn, there is no easy way to find them anymore!
Only One Problem
by General Malaise on 2018/08/18 14:36
I gave LinkedIn’s latest mobile app 5 Stars because “in general” I believe it deserves it. However, although it might be only happening on my iPhone 6sPlus, I have the following bug: When I first open the app, (Main Screen), the animated icon that used to appear at the top of the screen informing that there are New Posts is gone. If it’s not just my phone then it should be an easy fix. When it’s back then the 5 Stars will be fully deserved. Other than that, after 10 years, LinkedIn remains my Primary Social Media site.
Mobile is inferior to desktop version
by Charlex123 on 2019/04/03 13:26
I find LinkenIn a valuable way to connect professionally. I like the convenience of being able to access my account on my laptop or through the app. The mobile app has issues though, primarily that the news feed can not be displayed chronologically with “most recent” instead of the algorithm-determined “top stories”. The value of this network is seeing what people are doing now and what events are coming up. Eliminating the ability to view the feed by recent posts makes the mobile app useless for me. Please change the app to display the feed is chronological order. This is not Facebook.
Poor customer service
by joyofthelord12 on 2019/04/09 13:36
So this is the third review I am writing, my first two were taken down. Again my issue is a simple one. 1. Make the “X” to click off a potential contact a bit larger so I am not opening one instead of deleting it. 2. If I delete someone don’t put them back in the suggested contacts over and over and over and over. They should not ever appear again. Two simple fixes to two problems with linked in. Additional problem that was not in my first two reviews: 3. Don’t delete my review because you don’t like it. 3/9/19 Update: Keeps getting worse. Nothing has been fixed and the little “x” seems harder to click. I don’t want to click on the “x” just to have it open someone’s profile. It is a false click. I am sure that is why I get so many “people are looking at your profile” notifications each week, the tiny “x” I will add another problem: 4. Half the time now I cannot open a profile I actually want to see. The program freezes and I need to close and reopen the app, then I need to TRY to find that persons again. Please, I implore you, please fix these small, but glaring, problems
Skills & Endorsements Section Error
by TAD_West on 2018/07/03 18:18
Since last week I couldn’t upload the resume nor the Skills & Endorsement Section due to a submission error on my IPhone nor IPad, via the app or browser, today I decide to try on the desktop. Well I was able to update the resume via desktop computer. The skills section that we’re giving me the previous errors via the app I guess did save despite error message. However, I noticed I still had 8 skills I could add, well it appears there’s just an overall error in this section. I’m currently receiving a similar error in saving on the desktop computer. I’ve logged in/out & it DID NOT save. I’ve taken a picture of the desktop error, and do not have the patience to attempt this on my phone at this time. #FRUSTRATED

by Tech•know•logist on 2018/01/09 23:12
LinkedIn is not only a valuable App for HR employment, but a hosts of hotbed for resourceful opinions, debates, surveys, photo opportunity to share artistic graphics, videography, referrals, links to professional articles, references for statistical data, release of emergence to innovation, announcements to special events / affairs, meetings, special hearings, celebrations, strategy huddles, military & law enforcement posts, economic & market status, and the Lists is inevitable! Aside from the trolls & ignoramus who occasionally re-emerge as nuisance, there still is a marvelous value of how much of an asset it’s grown with possibly greater tools in the future!
Disgusted
by rockinrodeoricky on 2018/05/21 21:25
You have this software written so that a person can only pick one area of expertise! I have worked in telecommunications for 20+ years, I have also worked on pneumatic tube systems that are used in drive through pharmaceuticals and banks and hospitals! Both of these job areas at the same time! I’ve had my own electronics business at the same time! I installed phone cabling and computer cable and know about different types of data transmission. I specialized in vacuum tube technology! A niche market for high-end audiophiles down to musicians who still use vacuum tube guitar amplifiers. I design my own music effects pedals and vacuum tube amplifiers! As far as I can see you offer no way of entering all of these talents and experience that I have. I’m very disappointed!
Okay but too many glitches
by Icebox_hop on 2018/01/28 05:27
At first I was really loving LinkedIn, but lately it has been logging me out and the telling me that the password I have saved is incorrect! It has logged me out in my phone as well as on my computer. It does it after maybe every 10 minutes. So it has been nearly impossible to search jobs and connections without being logged out every time. Therefore, I have become very disappointed in this program. Also I haven’t been able to submit my resume with easy apply so it has caused me to revert back to the normal search and go to original website method. There are just too many glitches preventing me from enjoying this program.
New update is crashing hard
by PaintPenclPaper on 2017/10/28 17:51
Hello, I actually really like this app but the latest update has completely crashed the platform. My profile and feed will not load at all. If I didn’t know better, I’d think that the latest update has erased my profile entirely. But having visited the desktop platform, I can tell that all of my info is safe. UPDATE 1:50pm : I can now login. And congrats on adding a much needed native video feature. But now the issues is that posts aren’t functioning as intended. It appears that you attempted to add a carousel feature for multiple image posts (which is great) but it doesn’t work. Only one image is visible once posted AND baldly cropped into a forced horizontal dimension. Then if I tap into enlarging the photo. It still only shows 1 photo and not the 3 that I posted. Another issue, is that I tried to revert to posting just a single photo but for some reason, that single photo fails to appear; only the post copy shows in the feed. Please fix the app. Almost there Thank you, B
Linked in has turned into Reddit

If I want to watch a guy who lost 4 of his friends to suicide in one week, do push-ups on LinkedIn, well let’s just say I don’t. Why is it on LinkedIn? How is that going to help me get a job? I can go to Reddit or Facebook for that kind of people watching but don’t because I like to use my time to be productive. I am really disappointed how LinkedIn has turned into something unprofessional. I feel bad for the guy, don’t get me wrong, but LinkedIn is a career building website for professionals, not a me too movement for millennials or millennial want to be’s who use social media (LinkedIn is fast becoming junk social media) for 10 minutes of fame. Next you will start using these videos for paid advertising when they get a lot of hits.
LinkedIn is great except

I really enjoy this app and I remember first getting introduced to it when I was at a vocational transition program for the blind last year. For some reason, every time I hit connect on someone I know with the people you may know tab, it’s not give me the confirmation that people‘s invitations are on the way like it used to and I wish it would do that, I hope you can take the time to fix that bug as a blind person thank you so much otherwise for including the blind in making this app
LinkedIn is needed, but this app isn’t

Everyone should be on linked in for business opportunities and to maintain connections to current and past colleagues. However the in your face, modal blocking forms, wizards, panes, to click or swipe through, and having to avoid their attempts at clicking a button you didn’t mean to, has forced me to remove this app once and for all!!! I might have used the app once a day to check the feed and maybe find useful work related news to read about. But the constant contact gathering windows, the “give me your contacts from your phone”, the “give me your email credentials” B*S* has left me no option but to uninstall the app. Now I will maybe go to the website once or twice a month. LINKEDIN, your contact gathering initiative has backfired terribly on you. You cannot use this app to do what you want to do (read news, find jobs, find people you know, etc) because LINKEDIN constantly tries to steer you into doing something else that is to add value to their business. Good riddance you terrible app and terrible product managers who turned it into this steaming mess.
Just another social media page

I found this to be another Facebook with a “professional” quality. Unsecure, and of no value to gainful employment. While perusing comments on the articles in my feed, I found that at least half were the typical social media trolling comments, arguing for the sake of arguing! Quite immature, detracted from the professional aspect of this app quite a bit. Coupled with an article stating that an average of 86% of financial employers now question the validity and trustworthiness of all LinkedIn profiles...well, there isn’t much use for this app as I avoid social media like the plague! And I say unsecure because I allowed my information to be shown to employers & allow for potentials to contact me, and I’m now receiving numerous spam calls & texts a day.
Love LinkedIn, but the app violates my privacy settings

My LinkedIn app has been set up for years no not have access to my Contacts list on my iPhone. Well, was I sure surprised when the app made suggestions to me about what contacts ON MY PHONE who have LinkedIn accounts that I have not yet added to my connections list, and then suggested me to invite other contacts ... FROM MY PHONE ... to start LinkedIn accounts via the email addresses I have for them in my phone. Well, as much as I love the LinkedIn product (seriously, I'm happy with the amount of contacts I've received from recruiters lately for my specialty), this app is a privacy-disregarding piece of garbage, and may need to be reported to either Apple or, even worse, some sort of government agency.
