MasterClass: Learn New Skills Reviews


App works again - all good & 4 stars  TGeist  4 star

Update 1/18/2019 After updating to version 5.1.2 everything works again! 4 stars now (one off for room to improve with usability). To be on the safe side I uninstalled the old version, restarted the iPad and then installed the current version. ______________________________ 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.


Downloads don’t show offline or online  Kyotocharm  2 star

I have an all access pass. I downloaded the three classes I wanted to take so I could study offline on my IPad. The first time I had no problems, the videos were on my download page. Since then all the videos do not show up on my download page even when I am on wifi. It’s frustrating as I now go days without watching a single video and have to keep redownloading the videos I have yet to watch. It’s frustrating and wasting too much of my time.


The classes won’t stay downloaded :(  miki2028  1 star

I use MasterClass across devices (mobile, laptop, tablet). When you go to the downloads section of the account settings it’ll show the classes that were downloaded and then when you exit and return, none of the classes will be there. When you go to the individual class listing it’ll show the mobile/downloaded icon indicating that lesson was downloaded, it won’t play (I’ve had several weeks of testing this behavior out in stopped/stuck bused and trains). :( The content is wonderful but the downloads issue is insanely frustrating and makes it so that I can only consistently use it when I have cell reception (which isn’t available for most of my morning and afternoon commute) or at home if I’m not already worn out.

Why do I have to update this app all the time?  Isbereine qq  1 star

It hassles me way too often? It just plays videos—don’t overthink it.

Young Nicky

iPad app is horrible  Young Nicky  1 star

Your iPad app is built horribly, it keeps crashing and does not work at all. Please fix this

Never rate things person

Fun learning  Never rate things person  4 star

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  Hajhzhshzhhzhzhshshhs  2 star

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  ThunderKat24  5 star

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!  ArchdeaconMusic  5 star

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  2832calada  1 star

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.


👍👍👍  kkstm  5 star

really worth it!!!

Freo Hippie

Download video option a disaster  Freo Hippie  1 star

TLDR video download feature is temperamental and unreliable. Don’t expect to be able to watch your classes if you can’t stream them I was preparing for a trip where there would be little phone reception and tried to download a number of classes. Even though I changed the setting to allow cellular download it would only work over wifi. I emailed customer support asking for help and they just said to use wifi. Then when I was on my trip and had wifi access I tried to complete some of the class download. Instead of completing them it just deleted all of the videos I had managed to download. No matter what I do now — reinstall the app, reset my phone — the downloads all just say queued or downloading and half of them don’t appear in the actual download queue.


One more star for Apple TV  GlenjaminLinus  5 star

Just got this as a gift and love the content, especially the new games development course. Love the Apple TV app for this.


Great content. Below average app.  Kleinsma  4 star

So far, the content is great. It has a true exclusive feel and I’m enjoying learning all kinds of new things. The app, however, is almost too annoying to let you enjoy the masterclasses. No autoplay of the episode or class, when you close your phone and accidentally open the app again the video plays from the start, and the offline download often doesn’t work. Fix these things and I’d be much more likely to recommend an all-year pass.


Question  euphospug  4 star

Hey, if I buy a course on my phone, can I access that course on my computer, iPad or other device? Cheers.


Pay to update  Monkeyhouse07  1 star

So you pay a subscription fee of nearly $300 to access the site, and then you charge for the app??? I paid nearly $300!!!!


Hell yeah!  Ebony-Jane  5 star

I am loving this. Especially the frankness and honesty of the teachers. I recommend James Patterson, Margaret Atwood and R.L. Stine for want to be writers who are hungry for meat not milk. Their tips and experience are gold nuggets. #addictedtomasterclass


Crashes all the time  Aubern  1 star

The app worked fine for months. Latest update? Crashes all the time now! Fix please. Class content very good.


Buggy crashy app  takagawa  1 star

I’m so frustrated at the Masterclass iOS apps. On one hand it’s a beautiful app and the content is great. On the other hand that app is so goddamn unstable. Right now it just keeps crashing when I start the app. It’s also unstable when I Airplay to my AppleTV - randomly stops playing and I have to reach for my phone. Every time this happens I get so angry I swear to myself I would cancel the subscription.

After updating to version 5.0.12 the app crashes while opening and I couldn’t open it at all.

D. Hill

MasterClass  D. Hill  4 star

Masterclass is a well designed application that allows users to easily search content from figures they like. The content provided is diverse from all walks of life whether entertainment, music, sports, politics, culinary, etc. The app does a great job in managing this content with downloaded classes available in it’s own section as well as a profile category which pertains to your account. The app also has preview videos for those would like to get a taste of content. Overall the app does a great job in putting a human face on education and making it more accessible.


Excellent App - AirPlay/Chromecast Support Improvements  Toaha.Hussain  3 star

I’m loving the content with the actual classes however I’ve noticed that when utilizing Airplay/Chromecast functionality to stream videos to my TV that videos time out and stop suddenly. For further detail, I’m using the iPad app which doesn’t appear to have the toggle for ‘Continue Playback in Background’. Additionally, upon streaming videos to a TV, it doesn’t appear that the app allows me to navigate to other areas of the app (such as viewing the classroom materials to take notes while the video is running on the TV). Current workflow essentially requires me to restart videos 2-3x per lesson which is somewhat frustrating.

Sans The Skeley

Needs Art  Sans The Skeley  4 star

I love this app due to its vast variety of subjects that you can learn from the best, but I would highly suggest adding drawing and art into the mix. I believe this app would really be if it from that, Thank you


Amazed at the level of teachers  Eschaos  5 star

WOW I’m impressed. Excellent work MasterClass — getting the best teachers for each category. I wake up each day excited to hear the next lesson of each clip. I’m not a Netflix binge watcher, I always feel guilty. But I’m a self help junkie. Finally, a way to watch ANYTHING that catches my interest. The app format combined with some Bluetooth headphones enables me to watch these videos anywhere, anytime. I’m going through the Patterson MasterClass now and I love the workbook, resources, and clarity of editing in each lesson — no FLUFF. Keep it up. App is phenomenal. No crashes. Smooth. Fast loading. Crisp Hd video. LOVE it.


Useful supplemental leading / tech problems  MilesPicasso  3 star

The writing and film classes combine to form a treasure trove of useful tools and ideas. But this format is not, and could never be, a substitute for interactive learning which includes critical feedback on writing and production assignments from qualified professionals with industry experience. To pretend otherwise is folly. These courses should be seen as a supplement, not as a core curriculum, for serious people who expect to have success as screenwriters, novelists, filmmakers, etc. My single biggest practical criticism is that the mobile app is buggy, unpredictable, and not nearly as functional as the website (one star off for that). The playlists function, for example, is not available on the mobile app for iPhones. The website is also prone to hanging up or canceling streaming with slower Wi-Fi speed’s. The tech team badly needs to work on both. The worst thing I can say about is that their management deleted all content for the acting classes taught by Dustin Hoffman and Kevin Spacey within minutes of both of them getting negative publicity during their respective public trials by Internet (only one star off for this, although more than that would be justified). The decision in the case of Dustin Hoffman is especially ludicrous. Sheer cowardice, stupidity, and a tragic waste of the efforts of dozens of committed individuals to put together the many things these two great actors have to teach. If personal and moral probity were the consistent standard by which to judge instructors, and then decide whether or not to permanently delete their content, then the website offerings would almost certainly shrink to a fraction of their current number. Just imagine if Pablo Picasso, Miles Davis or John Huston were born 50 years later than they were. “Delete! Delete! Delete! Nothing to see here!”


Best Investment Ever!  memilleratty  5 star

My annual subscription in Masterclass provides so much enjoyment that when the subscription comes up - reinvestment is not an option. The opportunity to have internationally celebrated icons personally mentor me in their art that they have given their lives to create.
