Latest Updates

Note on Search and iOS app

September 4, 2013

Hey Everyone,

Welcome back to school! It's exciting to see so many people coming back to Quizlet. 900,000 people a day are using Quizlet right now. Crazy, huh?

This summer we had an ambitious plan to make Quizlet better in many ways:

  1. We launched a brand-new Android app
  2. We updated the iPhone app to add Create Set and iPad compatibility
  3. We revamped our search tool to be much faster
  4. We built a new set page (currently available as a preview)
  5. We launched Google Login.

Of those improvements, most have been successful. A couple haven't: our iPhone app and our search tools.

Search has not been working well for the last few weeks. That includes auto-define, username search, class search and other key aspects of Quizlet. Specifically, there have been issues with new classes and sets not showing up in search, and auto-define has not been working. We know these are features people rely on, and their performance has been below our standards so far. We're doing everything we can right now to make search more stable, so please be patient as we improve it.

On our iOS app, we're proud of the new Create Set experience. But we've also seen a lot of issues with problematic syncing and slow performance. We're working hard to get an update out that will fix those issues.

You may not have even noticed these bugs -- in that case, great! But for those of you who have had issues, we know about them and we're on it! We want Quizlet to be 100% reliable night and day, and we're working around the clock to get there. To everyone who's been sending us email and feedback, we greatly appreciate it! We rely on those messages to inform us on how we're doing and what needs to get better.

Thanks a lot, Andrew

    is there a filter on what types of questions and answers can be paired together on multiple choice? If there isn't it would be really useful.:)

    With the new design, I don't know how to look for sets! Where do we go to find names of textbooks, chapters, and all that you used to have on the left side of the screen? I am getting lost in Quizlet!

  67. kogiraffe

    Great thanks! When I was trying to search something, it couldn't find it and said there was an error. If it did work, it took forever.

  69. ymani_wince

    Yes, it is definitely inconvenient that search is disabled. That's pretty much the whole crux of the site. Hopefully this can be resolved before my first Poli Sci test.

  105. SpaceCast11

    Once again, great work Quizlet team!

  106. Deepraj_Raut

    The android app is great... Great job...Thank you for that..... however I have a few suggestions...
    While I was learning the GRE cards, I dont get a summary or the list of words, so that I can directly jump to a particular word in the list and start from there..
    also, I need the advanced 'speak text' option so that I can just hear the words and not need to hear the meaning of it.
    If you could include these features.. that would be great..

  107. threepointonefourone

    Autodefine and create a class are not working for me. Thank you for the app update!

  108. AbigailBaldwin

    @Quizlet Staff

    I may have written this on another blog post, but just in case you missed it...

    I have the Quizlet iPhone App and for some reason, it won't update my current sets. Every time I try to update the newly added sets that I made on the laptop, my phone goes into a forever load. Then, I try to do something else, but my app freezes... The app worked perfectly and then one random day it started doing this. I've had this problem for a very long time so I don't know why your "bug fixers" are not working! :(

    I hate to complain to you guys, because I am the number one fan of Quizlet! But, it's affecting my studying time, because I can't always be at home on the laptop. Thanks for understanding!

    -rarrr3 :D :D :D

  109. ayvonsilva

    I LOVE THIS APP!! SERIOUSLY A VERY USEFUL TOOL :)

    @rarrr3

    I understand I am not a staff member, but I think I can help with your problem. I had the same issue with the Quizlet iOS App, so I sent feedback to Quizlet for help. They told me to sign out and re-login on the app, which then added in all of my new sets and updated my profile.

    I hope it helps!

    This site is awesome! I am 50 years old and currently attending a Heating & Cooling and Refrigeration School. I have been out of school for over 30 years. Getting back to study was a little hard at first. I came across Quizlet on a google search, and it really helped. I currently have a 3.5 GPA and I owe a lot of it to Quizlet. I have turned on some of my classmates to it, and they love it too! Thanks Quizlet I will be graduating in October as a certified HVAC/R technician!

  141. Walker_Nay

    Thank you so much for quizlet, for over 3 years I have had a hard time studying, but ever since my junior year of highschool I have been receiving higher grades due to quizlet. This program is amazing, it has so many features and helpful tools. I know there are bugs but nothing is ever perfect and through trial and error people get it right. I cant wait to see future updates, bug fixes, and new features, thanks again for this wonderful program!

  142. Lola_H

    Thanks Q-team for all the great updates, I will prob. be utilizing Quizlet more for my own personal sets and study, as the classes I'm in now kinda abandoned Quizlet for Edmodo, making study quite a bit difficult. :( I'm sure this site will help me a ton in college though, keep it up!! ^_^ *hi-5*

  143. dianaliuhk

  146. mikef22

    Is there any way I can connect to my sets, or possibly download them without connecting wifi? I use my iPad a lot, and some places I go do not have wifi access. I find using Quizlet extremely helpful and mostly convenient since I go to school fulltime and work long hours. Thanks!!! :)

  147. Madame_Murray Teacher

    I am using it for all of my classes and it is great. However, the app does not seem to show up when I check on my student's progress so they have show me in class. This is time consuming. Is this going to be remedied soon? My students love using the app and I want to be able to grade them accurately. Thank you.

    I cant believe quizlet tookaway group chat. My school literally had to open up new facebooks accounts just so we could discuss homework

    @NoahRhino
    I also experience slow server issues with quizlet and quizlet only. It is probably their issue cause i have the highest internet speed hooked right up to ethernet

  159. jacobdextercoffey

    Quizlet helped me to pass the exams. I love it!

  164. raypass

    The user experience of quizlet on Mac is much better than Windows. Although I don't use Windows very much, I really hope there could be a great improvement.

  165. londonkristin

    Is this going to work just the same on my phone as it would the computer?

  166. ANNAT12345

    Hello There,
    Thank you for inventing Qiuzlet. My daughter uses it all the time and when we got the app on her phone she said it was like playing one of her non-school games! I also use Quizlet, I am an teacher and Quizlet reallly helps my students. it is also nice because they know the password and no one else can see it!!

  167. tiffanymdurst

    it should work on your phone and anyone wanna talk

  168. bluedomke

    zzz

  169. bluedomke

    ANNAT12345 is right, Quizlet is like a non-school thing.

    The quizlet ios app has come a very long way from when it was first created and we really appreciate the hard work put in to making it even better and making the quizlet experience far greater than expected. Shout out to the Quizlet team! Keep up the great work!
