The quality of the videos is five star. Compared to the search of videos... It’s slow, at random glitches regarding the listing of the searched content appear and make it necessary to restart the app continuously, which is obviously annoying and around 50%of the time I try to watch the preview video it doesn’t work because “ I’m not connected to the Internet/you’re connection is bad, please try again later.” The app also slows down my internet in general and everything is so slow. So I’m wondering if something is happening in the background that I’m not aware of, and if not, what’s wrong?! Please change something. Thanks
The app is workable and delivers the content well. Unfortunately the video controls are tiny and hard for the app to register (particularly the full screen button and the minimize or close buttons). This lack of polish really can be felt as the frustration of tapping of the screen makes you not be able to pay attention. The feature to buy the courses with Apple Pay is rather neat.
Can you guys help I can sign into my account on my IPhone 6 it tells me that my profile is missing but I can sign in just fine on my computer. Please respond since I can’t find other ways of contacting Udemy my rate will change once you guys fix this but for the time being one star
Doesn’t work well at all with apple airplay I try to stream to my 65” Samsung 4K tv and it just sits there other apps work fine so it’s certainly an issue with this app
It may be challenging to find quality content (there is so much!), and maybe Udemy should consider the old adage “less is more”, but still... reasonable prices, lots of lectures, new stuff to learn, forgotten stuff to remember, refresh your memory. Udemy has it all. Well, fixing the UI wouldn’t hurt. It’s kinda old fashioned, don’t you think?
I can’t review the course if I can’t access because it keeps crashing. I press the stalled lecture and nothing happens. I can access the others but not the one I was listening too. I return to the stalled course and it starts from the beginning and then stalls again. Customer support contacted me and offered help after this review, and I appreciate the effort.
My main use for this app is to download course videos to then view while offline. After beginning playback on a video, occasionally the video and audio will freeze. Other videos in the course will play fine, but the frozen video cannot be resumed. Quitting the app does not solve the problem. Since most courses are linear, I’m effectively locked out of progressing in the course until the video randomly allows playback again. I’ve also experienced the app completely shutting down and receive an error message the my device doesn’t have enough memory for video playback. I’ve never received this error from other video apps, so this seems like a Udemy specific issue.
Try play I got a video and it doesn’t stop per say the timer button keeps playing but the screen is frozen or there is no sound. Thought it was a glitch on one video or something, but no most video in different courses.
February 9, 2020 - I love Udemy, and the courses on Udemy. This is a review of the app itself. There are only two times I try to watch Udemy videos on my phone, versus watching them on a laptop. 1) When I’m on the treadmill, one room away from my wireless router, and 2) when I’m away from home, and don’t have a Wifi connection. When I’m on the treadmill, I’m a room away from my WiFi router, and have a good enough connection to watch YouTube videos in high quality, with no buffering. So my connection is good. However, 2 out of every 4 videos I try to watch result in Failed to Connect errors of some sort. Since I’m without WiFi quite often, I’ve tried downloading videos for offline use. However, 3 out of every 4 videos I try to watch work for the first 2-3 minutes and then it looks like the video pauses, but the time keeps going. It’s almost like only part of the video downloaded. Which is obviously frustrating. It makes the app pretty much unusable, since you kind of have to watch videos in sequential order. I really like my Udemy courses, so it’s a shame. I have tried deleting the app and reinstalling it. So I have the latest version of the app as of writing.
I’ll update my review after updating but for now I have to note the lame bugs in the version I have. 1. It starts playing at random times. When I pause the player it just starts playing on it’s own. Worse yet today I paused it. I Put my iPad in standby and it started playing at some point. It played 25 lectures and used up my battery. Why would it ever play when in standby? 2. Lectures only download partway. I had to download each lecture of a 120 lecture course to get them to download completely.
