  • Fun learning

    By Never rate things person
    Bought the unlimited package. Completed the wine reviewing session already. I am interested in a few more session and look forward to watching. The cost may be justified if you enjoy an organized format of fun-facts on available topics. Otherwise, a round of informative YouTube videos may suffice.
  • Offline Content Bug

    By Hajhzhshzhhzhzhshshhs
    The download offline feature on this app is awful. I can’t see the videos I download or they don’t download or they say they download but then I can’t find them when in airplane mode. This service costs too much for a bug like this to persist.
  • MasterClass is a Masterpiece

    By ThunderKat24
    Whoever created this app is a genius. Where can I buy stocks in this? This app is going nowhere but up!
  • AWESOME! Well worth the investment!

    By ArchdeaconMusic
    I saw Masterclass many months ago and was VERY interested in checking it out. If you want to be successful you've gotta model others who have what you desire, but model them in finding yourself and your truth. I bought the full year Masterclass a little over a week ago as I'm always looking to further my knowledge and skills at anything I do. Being a full-time musician I've already watched the Carlos Santana & Christina Masterclasses and they were both very insightful! There is so many years of experience between those two amazingly talented musicians and to delve into the minds of people that are so successful at what they do is absolutely invaluable! I believe the trick to getting the best out of this Masterclass and learning in general is to listen with an open mind and pick the things that YOU deem useful for yourself that you can apply to whatever it is you are doing and just discard the rest. I mean even if you get 1-2 useful things per Masterclass that you can utilize for the rest of your life to make you a better musician, actor, or whatever it is you do then it's worth it! I always say that you have to be willing to invest in yourself because if you're not willing to invest in yourself then why should anyone else invest in you? I'll leave you with this quote that sums it up very nicely, "A true master realizes he/she is always a student." So glad I decided to give Masterclass a try as I've already gotten so much valuable info in just 2 classes and I'm planning on taking many more over the year membership! MASTERCLASS ROCKS!
  • Automatically Renewed for $180 without my permission

    By 2832calada
    Irritated that after one year of enjoying MasterClass they charged my credit card another $180 without my permission They make it challenging to contact them and cancel.
  • Terrible App; Excellent Course

    By bparker86
    This app is an injustice to the course I am taking. Maybe 2 stars is harsh, but 3 stars is almost too kind. The app’s most egregious fault is when you download lessons. Not only is downloading too slow, it is unreliable, and worse still, if you re-start your phone, you lose all previous downloads, forcing you to start the (slow, unreliable) download process all over again. In effect, the app fills you with frustration and not learning. It distracts you from the serene beauty of the lessons it should deliver. Interface-wise, it looks good, and seemingly simple enough to navigate. What I don’t like is how it tries too hard to get you to look and see other classes. I just want to get to my class, and not be distracted by the other goodies. Last, but not least, it is a slow app. It lags behind my navigation choices. For example, nothing happens when I press download 3 times, and then too late after, 3 pop up options show up one after the other. Argh. Since I already paid for the class, I sure hope this app gets better.
  • So far good quality video bUT

    By lbmac
    Wish they had more variety of writing classes. I.e. short stories, magazine articles, poetry. Not everyone wants to write a novel....
  • App has technical issues with offline videos

    By capital-t-bone
    Lots of issues with downloaded content. Deleting a single video wipes out all downloads until you force quit and reload. Resuming a downloaded video results in “technical errors” that freeze the app. I love the content but please fix the offline downloads.
  • Great content, app has a little to be desired

    By past_tense
    So far I love the content and classes but as consistently having issues with the app mis labeling the lesson I’m on and then skipping some lessons. For example if I’m on lesson 7 the label will say lesson 8 but the content will be lesson 7. When lesson 7 is finished playing the app will mark lesson 8 as complete then start playing the content lesson 9.
  • If you’re on the fence, just do it

    By FrozenFuller
    Paid $90 for one class. Almost immediately had buyer’s remorse after realizing how short the videos were. Then I watched them... Worth every penny (and then some). If you REALLY want to know the subject, pull the trigger and watch intently. My class was well worth it.
  • Great Idea, Bad Execution

    By _charliebennett
    Some people may agree with me, but I don’t want to spend $180 a year or $90 for 13 videos about basketball, what I think this app could have done was have all the lessons, documentaries, etc. for free but insert advertisements as a revenue option. I’m always trying to learn and by watching these trailers I get excited, however $90 or however much they are, is a lot of money....
  • Money money money

    By Duramax666
    $89 or $179 for a year.... look all the titles up on youtube if you want them for free. Dont waste your time watching trailers of nothing. Pointless app for people with big dreams and hopes. And especially not that kind of money to drop on an app when that would fuel a real coach for a starter.
  • Love the content! Apple TV addition is wonderful, but...

    By mattyohe
    My only problem with the Apple TV app is that the developer/product owner chose to re-implement their own video player interface instead of using the one off the shelf from Apple. Please don’t do this. You lose all of the hard work that Apple has put into their player, and the user experience suffers because of it. As an example, I frequently use the 15 second jump back functionally that the Siri Remote provides. This does not work in this application, and attempting to jump back is actually quite awkward.
  • Won’t even open on iPad

    By KWrited
    This app won’t open on iPad for some reason all of a sudden. I’ve tried deleting it and re downloading and nada. Every time I try this I end up having an issue with the product and regretting it.
  • App Downloads

    By BK423
    Love the concept and I subscribed but offline downloads are quite buggy. I am currently unable to download anything even though I turned on “cell downloads” and it just stays in “queued”. I queued everything up the night before to download and only half the items downloaded and in a sporadic order. Would be great if it downloaded at least the earliest lesson first and didn’t leave the middle three for last.
  • Cant login with facebook through app.

    By gpb1990
    When I use a browser and login through Facebook it works. When i tried the app, it’s not working.
  • Wonderful

    By RYANS978
    If only everyone would buy this for their children and make them understand the value. I have a 6 and 12 yr old, they’re both enjoying it. Better than any college for $180/yr. love this!!!! Thank you all for making it possible
  • I love this

    By vnbdhalcbdua
    I love masterclass, Curry’s class has been so helpful in my development of a basketball player! I recommend this 1000%.

    All I can say is this is the best Xmas present ever!!! I’m grateful to all the experts for their time and the wealth of information coming from years of experience and persistence they are sharing. ❤️
  • Download is too difficult to work with

    By HunterMeow
    Please fix. This is unacceptable for a subscription service that charges $180 a year. Currently the download seems to have a delayed start which is really annoying. Also it’s impossible to prioritize which lessons to download first. When download completes, the video disappears. When download is hit, we expect the download to start immediately, and to start with the videos that were added to the queue at the beginning.
  • Love the content

    By K. Alexander
    So many insights!
  • MasterClass

    By dt2tr4785
    Excellent so far
  • App doesn’t load

    By The Karp
    While I love the idea of having MasterClass on my phone, the app itself doesn’t load after the initial use of it. I logged in and even downloaded some episodes to play when away from WIFI but the next time I went into the app it couldn’t get past the load screen. After quitting the app and going back into it the app still couldn’t get past the load screen. Hopefully they fix this problem but until they do the app is a 1 star for me. It’s a shame that I payed so much for the subscription but one of the modes of using it doesn’t work.
  • Master Class is my favorite thing

    By AnnAmelie
    Any spare time I get I try to use my all access pass. I’m hooked. When, in all of history, has such a wealth of insight from such an impressive collection of creative genius been this easily accessible? Never before. This site is a treasure trove. I absolutely love it.
  • Worth so much!

    By 2bitfx
    I cannot believe the amount of knowledge contained in these classes. When you can learn from industry giants, and they take you past the theoretical and into their process, that is invaluable. I read a comment by another person on Facebook or somewhere that said for $90 they wanted to be in the room with the teacher... people would pay thousands for less successful teachers for a weekend seminar. This is the best $180 (year plan) I have ever spent on my education.
  • App crashes after update - do NOT update

    By TGeist
    Update 12/27/2018 Version 5.1.1 still crashes on my iPad. Uninstalled and reinstalled the app - nothing has changed. You definitely didn’t keep me happy over the holidays. ___________________________ Yes, as others stated the current version of the app constantly crashes. Really disappointing in my case because I’ve downloaded lessons I wanted to watch on my 8 hour flight right now. Several other people have already confirmed that the app crashes so it’s not an isolated issue. I will also request an extension of my subscription for the days until a working update is available because for $180 I’d expect a fully working app.
  • Organized Learning

    By Ashlee Haynes
    It’s the best experience I’ve ever had learning subjects from every area. This is truly the best way to master anything by learning from the best professionals. Just the perfect app.
  • Basic..

    By echoechotwotwo
    I enjoyed it, however it’s very basic . For almost 200$ I was expecting a much deeper understanding of the subjects.
  • Not a bad app, but one major bug

    By PlexQ
    The app isn’t bad - but when I tried to download the videos, it completely choked. The content is listed as being 33MB or so, not very big and I come back a couple of hours later to go to the airport, and only three lessons had downloaded. I wondered if I had a bad install, reinstalled the app, but it’s not any better. It mostly just sits there with things “queued” when I request a download. I can’t cancel the download now either - it’s just in a hung state. What makes this app useful for me is that I can download the content - otherwise I can just go to the website. Not a great experience.
  • Very buggy

    By m0nk3yMac
    great content, but the app is buggy. scrolling often jumps around (back to the top). downloads are unreliable. in the lesson view, the app indicates downloaded, but frequently the download view shows nothing. navigation is terrible. for sure, none of the developers have ever used the app (e.g., back button reverts to home screen then have to search for the same course). clearly a business model driven company with outsourced developers who don’t understand the content. could be amazing if they fixed basic problems.
  • MasterLecture, not class, not helpful

    By Act1action
    Promotional ads for MasterClass say "meet your instructor", as if the best in their class pros are going to instruct you; but, what most of these videos are end up being retrospectives into their past, anecdotally told, with little to no connection to the student, their work, their education to follow the same path & a simple "good luck"... with this kind of class you're going to need it. I get it... some things can't be taught & lecture is a form of teaching, while this is true each class spends far too long (hours over) letting these brilliant people ramble on about the most general of subject matter, which would seem to fit better into a DVD commentary than a class. If they want this to be a class, personal anecdotes should be kept to absolute minimum (like one 10 min video, a case study) and every time a speaker is telling about something, we should be seeing examples on screen. For example, when Ron Howard is talking about film editing: why aren't we in a pro editing room seeing how we should set it up and seeing exactly how to do basic workflow or organization? Understandable we can't learn style, but there is so much more to be seen and taught. Any time somebody is sitting and speaking to the camera, you could be doing a better job of showing (rather than generally telling). Some videos dabbled in this, but only after a lot of extra stuff that could have been cut. Tightest cut (and most direct) was Gordon Ramsey's cooking class, which I enjoyed. Second best was Aaron Sorkin's class, which at least had a session of writers pitching their ideas and him giving feedback. Martin Scorsese (sorry Marty) was terrible & I struggled to get through a really long lecture that drifted off into the unknown of film history so many times. I did think the $180/yr unlimited option was a better value (as I would have been angry if I'd paid $90 for any one of these classes). At $180 for a year & 6 complete classes watched (plus 4 partial) I think I just about got my value out of it. As a video editor, I kept wanting to cut these down to the helpful information. Some 20 min videos could have been expressed in about 60 seconds. That's bad producing, directing & story editing. I wasn't here to get a highlight of their career, I wanted to learn something and often then teased teaching just to move onto another subject, obviously without a real lesson plan. One filmmaker said "there's a few simple things every filmmaker should learn" and then he basically forgets to tell us what all but one of them are. Below is a rating out of 5 for each class: Gordon Ramsey: 5/5 Paul Krugman: 4/5 Steve Martin: 3/5 Mira Nair: 3/5 Aaron Sorkin: 3/5 Annie Lebowitz: 3/5 Ron Howard: 2.5/5 Werner Herzog: 2.5/5 Sam Jackson: 2.5/5 Bob Woodward: 2.5/5 Judd Apatow: 1.5/5 Martin Scorsese: 1/5 On a final note: I did enjoy the workbooks and the feeling of community some classes had as part of the website. The app itself is pretty high end, but lacked a way for me to stream direct to my Roku (I had to watch on a special app using the mobile site). Since most of these videos are just one person talking, I don't see why there isn't an audio only version as I started listening in the car. I think it's important to get instructors that will hold regular "office hours" and stay involved with students and their journey. It should be more interactive and there should always be an assignment that must be completed, that the instructor does with you.

    needs to add people who are up and coming. people that the youth can connect with more. need to add people like royce david or cole bennett.
  • Not working

    By itisnotwirrking
    It crashes
  • Really?

    By OoFuUgLy
    Just saying but when i look at some thing about sports, or anything else I thought classes were free but I guess not. Also there’s writing but no drawing?? That’s the whole point I downloaded this app.
  • I love cooking

    By JohnFromPuyallup
    My great love is cooking. Getting learn from great chefs like Thomas Keller is a dream come true. MasterClass is awesome
  • Do not update

    By Stuffshgfghh
    This version only crashes. If you can play with the old one keep it otherwise major exercise in frustration here with this app.
  • Masterclass has potential

    By Getagriff
    This has potential but is way overpriced. I actually like to listen on the phone like a podcast. But will not renew at 180.00. Should be half that per year. Most of it is people talking about themselves.
  • App keeps crashing

    By Why_atl
    Just bought a year membership and now I find out I can't watch videos on my iPhone. This is ridiculous. I've deleted app reinstalled it, did iPhone reset and nothing seems to work. I'm so upset over this.
  • Jimmy’s the man!

    By Justin Tiner
    I’ve admired Jimmy since I became aware of him a couple years ago, not just because of his ability as a climber, skier, or photographer. It’s his integrity, and his ability to always stay positive (even in the face of danger) in his relentless pursuit of his objectives. I’ve dreamt of having the chance to meet him, and learn from him, well, this class has given me the information I was looking for. He’s great at teaching, and goes into detail in this class. This class exceeded my expectations, worth every penny! Thanks Jimmy!
  • 7 stars

    By The Dalts 108
    Supreme knowledge from the most acclaimed and iconic figures in the World. Beautifully shot and presented. Every session filled with Gems.
  • Keeps crashing

    By Ikarosflew
    The old version of the app worked fine, but I updated and now every time I try to play a video the app crashes completely.
  • Ramsey Gorden Master cooking Class

    By pako58
    Exciting. Energetic. Informative. So much drawn in the art of the cuisine!
  • Great content, but a few bugs

    By Mmwilkes
    After I finished the course, I wanted to rewatch it. But instead of picking up right where I left off like it did when I was first watching it, it keeps bringing me back to the beginning of chapter 1. Also, it only lists the next 4 lessons below the lesson I’m currently watching. It will not let me scroll through all 19. And lately, it hasn’t been letting me actually click on one of the lessons. It forces me to click “next lesson” repeatedly until I get to the one I want. Please fix, and I’ll upgrade to 5 stars. Excellent content and beautiful layout, though
  • AppleTV

  • Latest app upgrade crash fail

    Dear Devs, Can launch the app, but after selecting a lesson, the app crashes. (Sad face emoji) Please fix this and let me know when the next version is baked. Thanks, Class less master iOS 10.3.3 MC version : most recent

    By TheMadPaki
    Love the app and it’s content. But you can’t update your security anywhere, there’s no 2-factor authentication, I can’t update my password, forgot password doesn’t work. It’s almost impossible to get back into the app when you get a new phone.
