Skillshare in and of itself seems pretty great so far. The app, however, is pretty bad. Can't listen if I close my phone even if I download the classes, so pointless battery drain; as well as it not saving your position so if I even go to another app to send a text message or some such thing, it goes back to the beginning and I have to find my place again. These problems ought to be fixed.
Great app...if only it had DISABLED downloading classes for only use when I'm NOT in WiFi range. Seriously, It's 2017, this setting should be turned on by default. App consumed a little over 2 GB without my knowledge. Uninstalling promptly.
The service is great, but the app needs work. It's usable, just feels too bare-boned. I think the team could take a look at other popular video streaming apps like Twitch, YouTube and Netflix as comparison. Sometimes having an original layout is not the best option if the GUI becomes less intuitive.
Skillshare is great, but... There is abig problem with the Android app right now. I have premium but after the last update all classes are locked and my saved classes are all gone. If i login on my pc everything is fine. And i cant find any support on the damn app to inform the devs 😒
4. It is a 4 for the love towards Skillshare as a whole and no the app itself. The app is decent, but for me, it lacks the usabillity that the website offers. The drawback is the player and the absence of playback speed. I prefer going through my courses with 1.5x or 2.0x speed. this is the only feature I msotly care about in a course oriented app.
Update: Thanks for fixing some of the issues. The offline classes are still being a major problem. 1. if I log out it deletes all of my offline classes, 2. It still won't let me access my offline classes and take me about 4 attempts to get and see if there are any there still.
Thanks for using Skillshare! This update improves search and fixes some bugs.
