Speed control would be nice to have. Or else dont encrypt the videos so im able to watch the videos on a player that supports speed control. There's a bug: pausing, unpausing, then pausing a video in quick succession causes the video to continue playing in the background even when it says the video is paused. The video continues playing after the app is closed. To stop the video I would have to kill the process.
The Lynda app design is elegant and the content is top notch. However, whenever I pause a video and minimize the player and later return to watch both the paused video and audio from other videos on my playlist will play simultaneously and the only way to stop this is by closing and reopening the app. Other than that the app is great.
Ironically, this app is buggy. It frequently plays two audio streams after unpausing, one linked to the video and another that persists after I leave the app and into other apps. I have to force quit the app to get the second audio stream to stop. I love the content. This review is just for the buggy app in hopes that it gets fixed.
Used to really like this app, but lately it keeps telling me I'm offline when I'm not and won't play videos, even if I've downloaded them. Will play one video, and then will just keep "loading". I can restart the phone, which will correct the "offline" status, but still can't get videos to play. I won't change this rating until this is working again, and am now considering cancelling my annual subscription. It's useless to me if I can't watch the videos.
Best in class content. Tragically flawed app. Audio playing from 2 videos is making this app very frustrating to use. Constantly requires force quit.
1. Why does the app not have learning paths? This is the biggest mistake I feel. On the desktop version, in the menu, there are options for different learning paths. But on the app they're simply not there! 2. The bug that shows I'm offline even if I'm connected to the internet. All other internet enabled apps work because I'm on wifi or mobile data. Except Lynda. 3. Why the video doesn't play where I left it? Why can't the app just cache the data of the point I've reached in a particular so that I can pick up where I left it. Or at least let me play (or stream) these videos via a 3rd party app that would allow me to do so. I've used the app for just a couple of weeks and these are my problems. Will update this whenever a new version is available.
