Every 6 weeks, the Quizlet team spends 24 hours concentrating solely on making the current Quizlet experience better across web, iOS and Android for millions of students and teachers. Here's the highlights of what we fixed this time.
Clearer instructions for embedding
You can only embed a set on your own website that is public on Quizlet. Until now, there was no way to figure this out (other than searching out FAQs), since we just hid the embed button on private sets. So we changed it to show the embed button on all sets:
And then if the set isn't public, we inform you that you'll need to make it public to embed it.
Embeds won't steal focus anymore
Many of our study modes focus you on the text-input box when you come to the page, which makes sense when the study mode is the only thing on the page. However we recently learned that this behavior was extremely frustrating on a page with lots of other widgets - since this can cause the page to scroll immediately to the Quizlet embed vs. the top of the page. This is now fixed!
Easier to see toggles
The design of our toggle for sorting lists on the website has always been difficult to read visually. It's not clear which side of the toggle is actually highlighted. See this example from the set page:
We've now updated this toggle so that it's much clearer which side is currently active:
You'll see this change reflected throughout the website (Set pages, Class pages, Folder pages, etc):
Fixing Quizlet for iOS 8
Our iOS team had a unique set of bugs to work on today - new issues with the latest updates from Apple. Here's an example of our log in screen on the iPhone 6 in iOS 8:
Stay tuned for some big updates to the style and layout for the new devices.
And many more...
In addition to the changes you can see, we also made some great updates to how things work behind the scenes to make sure Quizlet runs as smoothly as possible for all users.
As always please, let us know if you run into any issues using Quizlet.
