In December, we launched out first iOS app for iPhone and iPad. Since then, the app has allowed thousands of students from around the world to learn on-the-go and to take their bite-size classes offline to learn whenever and wherever they like.
Today, we're thrilled to bring you new browse filters and an offline manager to make classes even easier to find on your iOS device.

At Skillshare, our mission has always been to unlock the world's creativity. We believe that everyone is creative, and that giving people tools to harness their creative power has the potential to change lives for the better. That's why we're excited to team up with Adobe to bring you a great deal on the world's best photography tools: Photoshop CC and Lightroom.
In order for us to provide great and varied content to students, it's vital that we continue to support teachers as well. As such, we are revising the classes available in Free Membership. Instead of one (1) hour per month in any class, free members will have full access to a select group of free classes.

Quarterly retreats are a big part of Skillshare’s culture. Four times a year, we take time out to connect, reflect, plan, and re-energize. It’s a great way to stay aligned and inspired. This past quarter, we’ve been especially busy. We released our Membership program, launched dozens of new classes, and added some remarkable folks to our team. To celebrate our big wins, this quarter we headed out to the Hamptons.
Recently the Skillshare team took a field trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art alongside the much buzzed about, guerilla-style Museum Hack tour. While we looked forward to seeing some of the best pieces and artifacts the museum had to offer, we soon found out that a night with Museum Hack meant a whole lot more than walking through exhibits.
