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:
- We launched a brand-new Android app
- We updated the iPhone app to add Create Set and iPad compatibility
- We revamped our search tool to be much faster
- We built a new set page (currently available as a preview)
- 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
