I love skillshare but the app doesn't have some basic features that an app like this should have. It won't recognise my WiFi (all my other apps do so not an issue with the WiFi)) The videos crash regularly, course descriptions never show, and you can't upload work via the app or view worksheets/handouts which makes me wonder why the app exists at all. There is a download class function but it often doesn't work for me and still wants to stream the class dispite me having apparently downloaded it previously. A recent update also removed Chromecast functionality, something I used regularly as my daughter's enjoyed following of the kids classes and this was the easiest way for them to follow together. This could be a great app if it functioned better.
I agree with other commenters regarding the dirty practice of Skillshare of not sending you at least a courtesy notification that your trial will expire before charging you, not a month's membership, but their yearly $96 trial. Is it that hard to let people know? I would be more willing to join as a happy member just for the honesty. I kept the membership because I knew that I would find value in it regardless. Just didn't appreciate the disconnect. The app is not very good. Video decides when it wants to play. Google casting jumps video order or doesn't play at all. It's an ongoing issue with Skillshare since I've been on the platform for the past 2 years. No updates ever address the problem.
The app keeps crashing! One of the main reasons I have the app is for offline viewing since I can't always rely on my internet. The constant crashes have basically made the app useless! I can't access ANYTHING - offline or online! Update: Changed my rating cause it doesn't crash anymore. I usually use the website rather than the app, but the offline option in the app is useful.
Cool idea, horrible app that doesn't work. It crashes or simply won't load anything. Also, be careful when selecting 30 day trial period, your paypal will be charged at the end of the trial for a full year. Just make sure to cancel your plan if the app isn't working for you.
This a great app for artists of all levels. It's like having many many art classes at your fingertips. The price of the prescription is totally worth it especially if you know how expensive art classes are. If you live in an area where there are no art classes available this is also a very good alternitive.
I just want y'all to know that you gotta remember to unsubcribe before your free trial or $.99 subscription is over! Or else, they will charge you for yearly subscription (roughly $96) immediately afterwards without a notification. It happened to me, but I did calmly and politely contact customer service and they were able to make an exception and give a refund! However, I have heard that in the past refunds were not really given. It can be a really awesome resource for many people who have certain interests, but I didn't find any helpful videos for me, which is okay! Just be careful to end your trial on time!!! :^)
