  • Really good

    By iidshad43687
    I have used many educational apps. Skillshare lacks lag times for watching videos that are common to similar apps. I would like to see a playlist feature to organize courses. If you compare the cost of Lynda or similar education platforms it costs a bit less. The quality of the courses vary but there are enough that I can find something worthwhile. They take a bunch of courses from other platforms like Udemy which charge between $11 and $16 for a course. If you have plenty of time to learn about topics ranging from speed reading and productivity to web design and programming this app is for you.
  • A great creation

    By LeaTrishaB
    I’m learning things that I didn’t get a chance to in university, at my own pace and it’s not $30,000 this time!
  • Good, but one problem....

    By MarcosSuperAwesomeNachos
    This apps concept is great and all, but some people like me don’t want to pay for this kind of thing. It’s good, but I wouldn’t recommend it if you don’t want to pay. -MarcosSuperAwesomeNachos
  • Wanted to try. Got the shaft

    By appleconvert22
    They wouldn’t let me run a free trial without cc. Was a busy month and didn’t get to watch much. Canceled day of charge. Doesn’t let you access the 30 days you pay for. Any company that has to “lock” you in, not good. Find alternatives.
  • Great app, good customer service

    By WhyAreAllTheNickNamesTakenFuck
    Had a weird issue with my subscription not working and they dealt with it promptly First review I’ve written but I’m really happy with my whole otherwise frustrating ordeal Also, great app, can’t wait to start using it again! Like... right now lol
  • Skillshare is getting me back in the art game

    By MHanlon_art
    I’m a stay at home mama of twins, still in the toddler stage. Before kids, I was a school teacher. Before that, I was an artist. I never lost my love of art, but my skills need some brushing up, and my subjects need broadening. Skillshare allows me to learn from home, from a variety of teachers. The few classes I have taken have given many times more value to me than the money I have paid.
  • It is awesome!

    By Ginny-Su
    Skillshare is great, having control over my own time to learn. The only problem is the videos are a little slow at loading and at times when I want to rewatch a clip from a video I have trouble rewinding.
  • Love the website, but I can’t log in on the app

    By camw1776
    I made my account on my laptop through Facebook, but every time I try to log in through Facebook on the app, it says an error occurred.
  • Hidden Treasure

    By TK Working Mom
    I don’t know what hole I was in not to have heard of Skillshare; but, I feel like I have stepped into a world of wonder and exploration. I can learn about all kinds of new interests. So far the teachers have been just what I needed. If you haven’t tried Skillshare, I highly recommend it!
  • Best investment for your life

    By emmalinh
    I’ve been able to gain so many new skills as a designer because of Skillshare’s elite teachers and easily digestible form of education. Highly recommend for people looking to expand their skill set and find inspiration or motivation in moments of lull.
  • From A to Z

    By Butterscotch88
    Find everything from design basics to pro business tips. Class layout is simple but the content is high quality! I would love to see more topics offered in the future.
  • Love❤️❤️❤️

    By Bethnapp
    I absolutely love this app! So much fun!
  • Thank you Alpha M ❤️

    By Omerahmed1
    Great app
  • Positive feedback

    By DrawWithIsabelle
    This is the best Christmas present I ever got from my mom. I love making art But don’t really want to go to college to learn how to draw and be stuck with student loans. This app is much more affordable.(:
  • I love it

    By Gilbert Obsessed Writer
    Skillshare is so bomb. I couldn’t be happier with it! Learning so much! Brilliant!
  • I can draw portrait now!

    By dissapointed C.
    For the longest time, I have been struggling with drawing a portrait with pencil or any kind of medium. After watching one of the classes by Morgan Swank, i finally able to draw a portrait that does not look distorted! Haven’t stopped drawing faces ever since
  • Great classes but bad app experience

    By Penny4style
    I do like the classes. They are mostly great but the app is really killing me. The video player keeps freezing. All I see is black while the audio is playing. On top of that, there is no way for me to go back to the main screen when the video is playing on full screen because every is freezing. REALLY REALLY FRUSTRATING!
  • Maurkia

    By Maurkia Moysone
    The reason why I don’t like the app you can’t be used without the premium. Not everyone has the money to buy it, you have to put it in consideration. It’s just feedback I am not trying to hurt your business.
  • Invaluable resource

    By mildred shreff
    Skillshare is a gateway to adventure and creativity no matter what your interests. Good instructors with varied backgrounds encourage you to do more than you came for. Think you aren’t creative? Skillshare will help change that.
  • Like it so far but...😯😐🤕🤑🤑

    By fluffy the bunny 🐰🐇
    When I first saw this I was thinking it would help me learn how to draw and it does but there is one little problem. When I sign in it wouldn’t let me in classes. And I had to buy a free trail . Please Do something about it . I really want to learn how to draw.but it’s a great game👍🤗
  • Love it

    By Pearllab
    Love the app it has everything!!!! I feel like the people teaching the class are real high quality people.
  • Great App

    By ElEcTrOn369
    The first month free is great because all the videos are unlocked. I’ve wanted to make websites for a while and now I have a straight-forward way of learning how!
  • Very helpful app for busy people

    By kalps,
    I’m a mom of two and was looking for some online classes to polish my multimedia skills to make a return to the industry after a gap of 5 years. I can’t take campus classes . So, Skillshare helped me to do what I wanted to from my house while taking care of my children. I hope I will be able to join the industry again with the help of Skillshare. Keep it up Skillshare.😇
  • Keeps freezing

    By Hello edu
    App keeps freezing! I’m trying to take lessons on 1.5x speed but apparently the software can’t handle it. I keep needing to close and relaunch the app. Super Disappointing
  • Good but keeps crashing.

    By isukwithnames
    The app plays video well but as soon as I scroll through descriptions or the comments section the app crashes 8/10 times!! Please fix
  • Please fix this

    By emojiAnnik
    Honestly this app seems cool but i cant do ANYTHING. I got a free month of Skillshare last night, and trying to use it today. It’s not letting me use it, telling me start a free month even though i did. When i click that, its not a free month, its telling me to PAY. I honestly would like this fixed, cause i am really interested in this stuff I’m trying to learn. Otherwise its a cool app IF IT WORKED. Plus they say “Use some free lessons” there are no freaking free lessons please reply to this so i can use the app.
  • Great classes

    By cyscokitty
    Love how quickly I can move from topic to topic. Plenty of variety to keep me engaged.
  • Worth Much More!

    By caefurd
    I use Skillshare constantly and I have learned so much. The classes are great quality and there’s a class on everything! If Skillshare went up to $100/month, I would still be subscribed. It’s worth way more than they charge. 10/10
  • Video Issues - A little annoying

    By Annoying DD
    I love the concept of this app; however, I try to watch the videos, the screen is either black or the video freezes. I can still hear the video playing but I cannot are anything or it just freezer.
  • Nice.

    By ffffffffffffffffffffffffffc
  • Good content missing critical feature in app

    By John in PA
    So far the content is good. I gave it a spin for Procreate tutorials. So I fired up Procreate and tried to bring up skill share side-by-side. No dice. An even better implementation is to let me run the video in a pip window. As is, the app captures the display and you have to jump between apps. Video playback defaults to playing in the background, but it’s audio only.
  • Wow!

    By Sunshine Hill Quilt Company
    I can already tell that Skillshare is going to be an invaluable tool to help me start my business! 🧡
  • For $13 a month, the app needs some work...

    By Roosevelt14
    Overall, a decent and usable app for watching the course videos. However, some things could definitely be improved. One overall thing that’s lacking in the app is continuity. The website is noticeably more robust than the app. My first and foremost gripe, the lack of speed control. The lack of this feature inherently makes me prefer using a computer to access Skillshare as most of the time I like the lessons to be set to 2x speed. However, while I prefer using the computer I can’t always (nor do I always want to) whip out my laptop and use Skillshare for 15-20 minutes. The second issue, which is just a minor design flaw is that the categories button in the Discover tab should have the sub menus of the categories laid out on the same page. It shouldn’t take 2 separate clicks IMO. Finally, the rotation. It’s just a bit annoying how the video player will only do landscape orientation in one direction. Additionally, the app itself doesn’t have a landscape mode at all while browsing the courses.
  • SCAM

    By cmj399
    I got the free trial hoping to learn something new. the classes wouldn’t download, there really isn’t much content at all and when you cancel your free trial it doesn’t work and they take your money anyway. Do not download!! Do not give them your debit card information!
  • Wow this app is awesome

    By Disney456
    Don’t think you have the time to learn think again,so much knowledge on here from cooking to photography. Stay at home mom who loves to keep improving herself even got my kids watching and applying what they learn. 5 star app!
  • Creative Fun

    By Notveryhappy63
    I absolutely love Skillshare!!! All the teachers so far make everything so fun and cheerful, they go out of their way to patiently show step by step how to be creative. Their ideas feed the imagination so I go beyond anything I thought possible. I watercolor and until Skillshare I had no idea how much you can add to the medium. My art has gone to a whole new level! Thanks you Skillshare Rebecca Kesler
  • One Pet Peeve..

    By KIMB00P
    The classes are great and diverse. I’m currently using the 2 months free trial. The only thing holding me back from probably keeping the subscription at the end is that if I am viewing a class and I accidentally click out of it, the audio keeps going and I have to navigate back to the class. If I don’t have the class saved, I have to search for it again and hit play. Which then it either starts over, or shows that I have watched the whole video.
  • Tons Of Lessons / App Needs Work

    By Meme-Rose
    Not really any issues with the classes so far. The app is what’s frustrating. It takes like 3 minutes just to load any video even if it’s only a 30 second video. And when it does start most of the time for me the image is frozen while the audio keeps going. Very irritating and makes me not want to use the app.
  • One of the best experiences I’ve had

    By KittySpirit1
    Not only are the classes diverse, thorough, and fun to learn with, but Skillshare’s customer service is AMAZING. I accidentally purchased a monthly subscription without meaning to and they got back to me in less than 12 hours. I don’t think I’ve ever gotten a full refund for a subscription payment from any service before, but Skillshare has blown me away! I would highly recommend both the experience Skillshare provides and the comfort of knowing you’re in safe hands. I’m definitely going to purchase an annual sub when I get the opportunity!
  • High value app if you’ve already got a skill share account

    By bellenthiel
    Downloading videos to watch on transit makes me feel more productive during my commute, app works pretty reliably, though I do wish I could change the playback speed like the web app.
  • Poor customer service

    By Gloveram
    Never even got to log in. Email support somehow couldn’t help with a login issue over the course of almost two weeks. Claimed I stopped contacting them and canceled my help request although I had forwarded them the info they requested.
  • Amazing

    By Sie the Pea
    I learned this app existed after listening to Tom Bilyeu. I’ve only had it for a day and I’m in love with it!
  • Good

    By Joshysonbro
    It’s a good subscription. The audio still plays if the screens off, so I use this app while I’m working.
  • Pay choice for a FREE MONTH

    By ffhroueqg
    Ok so I download the app you know just can’t wait to get it for a month ONLY , then when I ask for the free month trial guess what I’m faced with, a choice of payment DUDE if I press the free month trial just let me get the free month trial I ain’t paying for it when I’m getting it free. Ask me for my choice of payment after the month is over so I can actually pay if I like the app.
  • Icing on the cake

    By Minyoun2013
    I have been doing surface pattern design for 2.5 years as a self taught artist. Finding the Bonnie Christine videos, has pushed me a little further and taught me a few new things that I didn’t know before. I am all about self teaching myself everything. Skillshare is a way that you can learn on the go, at home, waiting for carpool (stay at home mom) and run a successful thriving business! I recommend their videos for anyone with a drive for personal and business success without having to have a college degree in any of it! Great product and business they have!
  • Great experience!

    This is an invaluable tool. They take the time to think about how students work and definitely at different speeds. They variety of different classes is also just great! Keep it up!
  • Access to a broad broad catalog of subjects

    By Jim from Wellesley
    Hard to beat. Excellent value. Access to literally thousands of topics and instructors of a variety of different stripes.
  • Amazing platform

    By Basoom234
    I can find almost every topic I want to learn about! Love all the artists in there!! Can’t wait for more watercolor classes in there from all the famous amazing watercolor artists out there
  • Great Classes!

    By Karaboocakes
    I love the amount of info on Skillshare for one very affordable price per month.
