The learn mode, now more awesome.
Today, I'm launching the new learn mode! Finally, right? It's been in the works forever. Learn mode was the "original" Quizlet feature - it's been the same since we started. Now it gets a much-needed makeover. It may not be quite perfect yet, but it's a lot better than the old one.
While I was launching the new code, I just happened to look over at number of accounts on Quizlet, and it just happened to PASS 200,000 PEOPLE TODAY. Wooo!! Thanks everyone.
Here's your feature list:
- New learn mode. Since the beta launch, I added a discrete "override: I was right" link, and a few bugfixes.
- Customizable symbols and accents on every page
- Fixed the grading on the Test page when your symbols were turned on.
- Updated search to be more accurate and do a better job of counting results, and be much faster.
- Renamed "tags" to "subjects" - same feature, just easier to understand.
- Massive speed improvements - reducing the weight of every page, and also doing some caching that should make everything a bit faster everywhere and make the servers a little happier handling more people. (As of right now, some of the data is still being imported, so don't worry about funny word counts and missing usernames)
- You can now use Learn mode without being logged in (it just won't save your place if you navigate away)
Quizlet works on an iPhone now, but it could be more awesome...
Lastly, we're going to start work on a Quizlet iPhone application very soon. I'd like to hear your ideas on what it should do, what it should look like, and what killer things you'd like to see on it that you wouldn't be possible on the web. Write a comment!
