Access to course history and bookmark
I normally access the site thru the web. And I have many classes saved in bookmarks and I also continue where I left off my classes by using the course history. Since the app does not offer either view. I had trouble finding the last class I was taking. Please fix this! Thanks! UPDATE: I received a response from the developer for this issue. I later realized that my LTE connection was slow when I launched the app which caused the history and bookmark not showing up. A suggestion for the dev - if bookmarks and history cannot be launched on the “home” tab due to network issues, please add some UI hints so that users would know that these are not available due to network. And thanks again for the quick response!
Been (and continues) to be a Fantastic learning journey!
Library is extensive. Content is top notch. And even if the app were to be lacking it would make up... and it isn’t!!! So makes the experience fantastic. I expect that from any paid service. Most important for me is the ability to stack up my reading for offline viewing and the ability to change playback speeds. Two features I wish they offered (and this is not related to the app but the service overall) - 1. Ability to perhaps play/download just audio content 2. Better way of managing playlists. (Maybe with an additional tag or flag) to better manage viewed/not viewed/revise content flags.
App was frustrating for awhile but has seen improvement.
In my original review I outlined the many frustrations I was having with this app, however, it seems like a recent update has made the app much more stable. The Pluralsight concept is great and there is enough material for multiple lifetime’s worth of learning as they cover a wide range of topics (database, IT, software, etc). I do wish the software development materials had a bit more variety at times though. If you’re a corporate business developer then there is plenty here, but outside of that there seems to be some fairly wide gaps or the materials that do cover said gaps are often out of date. Overall I do feel I get good value for the service.
I like the app very much! But why did i rate it 3 stars though! It’s the download courses. When I download a course, then watch a couple of videos in the app(offline) and return back to the app on windows they don’t sync! Even if I turned the wifi on after finishing. The same thing on the website it doesn’t sync with the app either. So what i had to do is to watch the downloaded course on the app while being online, otherwise videos won’t sync. So basically my progress is gone and i had to open every video again while being online to keep my progress updated. I didn’t try writing notes using the app (offline) yet. Put I hope they don’t have the same problem.
Pluralsight is great!
I was a user of CodeSchool and switched to Pluralsight when they were absorbed. The content is high quality and it seems they are expanding the interactive courses, which is my favorite way to learn. However - iOS 12 broke Chromecast streaming for me. I have multiple Chromecast devices and I can stream from other apps to them. The Pluralsight app at first did not have the cast button, now it does, but it prompts me for a pin each time and does not connect. I’ve rebooted all the things, uninstalled and reinstalled the app, but no joy.
Great content, some small bugs in the app
Love the content. We use Pluralsight for work and it’s been a great resource for learning new skills. Some of the quirks I’ve found with the app while using it quite a bit so far: 1. Auto playing videos while the phone is locked (audio only) and on a cellular connection (e.g. driving in the car). The videos will almost always NOT auto play, forcing me to unlock my phone and choose the next one (not good if you’re driving). 2. Auto rotation to landscape now when you play videos. Makes it hard to see other information about the course while you’re watching. 3. App refreshing/logging me out when left running in the background. If I change apps and then come back to this one (if it was paused or something), the app sometimes will have to refresh or even log me out, making me sign back in. Overall it’s a decent app, but I’ve found for the best experience you really need to pre-download the content you want to watch for the smoothest viewing.
Such amazing content !!
This is a starting point, middle point and growing point for everyone in your organization. Excellent information! Brilliantly picked instructors. Passion is high in this organization. Pluralsight is a pioneer in its field. I really don’t rate anything but this is so important I absolutely must recommend this. You will fall behind if your organization does not have access to such an incredible learning platform. I can’t emphasize it enough how important this can be for your organization or personal journey.
Great app but...
UPDATE: Thank you for your reply. Sorry, I should have been more clear. I’m casting the videos using a chrome cast to my tv. When I’m casting, the only active button is the air cast (rectangle with wave looking things), but the button for speed, changing video destination and the button for speed are all disabled and I can’t use those options. So I am stuck at watching videos at 1x. Is there a way to speed up the video while casting to a tv?
Fluid design, Great content
Pluralsight is an amazing place to keep yourself updated with latest tech with the help of experts. The best way hinge I like is the 'consistent experience' in all the courses. It greatly reduces the cognitive load as we go through the courses. App works great. No issues so far. Really love the download feature. The only issue I have seen is it prompts that Wi-Fi is required to watch, even though the course is fully downloaded. Keep up the great work 👍
Great app when it works
Pluralsight is a great learning source. However when I’m on the go I would like to use it on my iPad or iPhone. For my iPhone X it crashes each time I open it, on my iPad it crashes about 75% of the time. I’m fine with paying $30 a month, however it’s a bit pricey for a app that’s not working. If there isn’t a update soon I’ll have to cancel being I’m not able to use the service due to all the app crashes.
Great content, quirky implementation
Critique applies to iOS app, not course content: 1) Courses downloaded to device for offline viewing are not eligible for casting (iOS to Google Chromecast). What is the business purpose of this? I download the content so I don’t burn through my data plan while commuting, then must deselect the download option to cast it once I get home to continue studying. Then, before I leave the next morning, I must download the content again. 2) App becomes unstable when Chromecasting. Anything more than 2 ten second rewinds in a row will cause the app to encounter casting disconnect, syncing, or create a non-responsive environment, requiring app force close and restart. I also encounter other misc failures and I’m willing to provide logs, if applicable. I appreciate any help with these issues. All apps and iOS updates current as of today’s date. Thanks! Skip
Always the best learning tool and platform
A worthy content and authors delivering the details. Never missed my needed courses here. If I were to choose between LinkedIn leaning vs Pluralsight, this is always and ever be my go to preference. You pay either monthly or yearly or enterprise, but that will enable access to all the courses unlike sites like udemy, where even though the course cost is cheaper, it’s per course.
Great product. Great app.
I’ve been using pluralsight for years for both personal and professional use. The videos are up-to-date and easy to follow. The biggest issue with learning new technology is figuring out “where do i start?” Learning Paths give you a specific set of classes to follow to take you from beginner to advanced. I highly recommend this software.
Pathetic application and support.
Pluralsight is a IT training company and ironically lacks the ability to create a stable iOS application that can be a backbone to their revenue stream. The current inexplicably deletes all the videos that I download once the application is garbage collected by iOS. I filed a ticket citing the problem, and after a couple of instances of communicate from Pluralsight, they went silent. No response whatsoever. I am proud to say that we deliver better service to more than a dozen line of business applications. Pluralsight really need to wake up to the competition and bring sincere improvement to their services and support.
Great career tool
I can’t say how much this has helped me with my career and academic studies. I can maintain my skills and knowledge up to date. If there is something I am not familiar with I always check it out on plurasight or linked in learning. One thing that I like about plurasight that makes it different from others is that it gives you an assessment of your knowledge on a subject.
