You can never learn to much in life.

Learning is great for the brain and keeps you healthy too. This SKILLSHARE app is fantastic. It’s a little extra creative learning when ever you want it. Right now during our C-19 crisis this is the perfect time to schedule one in a day...or even two or three. LoL.
That’s what I do and I have gained some really great knowledge. Sharped up my drawing skills in some of my week areas...which helped me out a lot and I was very impressed and thankful for. Learned great self drawn character building with different basic character drawing class based on basic shapes-CIRCLE*SQUARE*TRIANGLE and thee emotions each shape holds. Made building characters 100% easier knowing if your character was going to be bad, powerful, happy, or even confused ...the shapes invented the character. Even looking at cartoons or comic book characters the shapes speak for the bad guys right away.. I also learned VISUAL JOURNALING...which is a whole new world for me, new watercolour techniques, taking better photos with my phone, Chinese etegami painting, street drawing (building), interior design on vintage finds, Linocut Workshop, etc...etc... My list goes on and on. I do recommend this to everyone. They have something for all. I am having a lot of fun with it and how seriously involved I got. I look forward to my SKILLSHARE class daily. I. JUST LOVE IT AND SO WILL YOU. ENJOY AND HAVE FUN...BE SAFE...PEACE

Skillshare is the NO #1 app for learning new things.

I’ve tried various apps for learning, none of them have been satisfying so it was with reservation that I tried Skillshare. I was more than pleasantly surprised. The lesson get straight to the subject, the instructors explain everything with clarity and don’t waste any time on unnecessary babbling. For all that you can learn on Skillshare, I find the price to be great. I can actually afford it and for everything that you can learn, I can only say that it’s Amazing! Some of the classes are surprisingly interesting. I have found classes, for example, on designs that I’ve never even thought about. On Skillshare you can discover all kinds of classes that are completely new to you, or new aspects that you can add to skills and knowledge that you already have. If you like to learn new things, I highly recommend Skillshare.

Skillshare is awesome but the app is severely lacking

I love Skillshare’s service and recommend it 100%. There is so much great content available and I have learned a lot. However, this app is hot garbage. There’s a lot of functionality on the website that is completely missing from the app, such as being able to access class resources. One thing that’s missing that really irritates me is the My Lists feature. On the website, you can organize your saved classes into lists, but you can’t add classes to your lists from inside the app. There are also lots of UI bugs and/or poor design choices. For instance, if you go to an instructor’s page within the app, it doesn’t actually list all the classes they have available. The only way to see all the instructor’s classes is to put their name in the search bar and scroll through the results there. Another irritating thing I’ve noticed is that if you’re watching a class in full screen and it ends, there’s no way to exit full screen without making the class play again. It’s a small thing, but the app is full of these odd little annoyances. The Chromecast function is also buggy and doesn’t always work well. I put up with the app because I love what Skillshare offers, but it could use a lot of improvements. The website isn’t perfect either (I hate that you can’t visit a class page without it autoplaying), but it’s much better than the app.
