Great product, less than stellar UI
I love quora as a product. It is a great tool when I want to read something interesting at any time of the day, on the fly, in limited time. It's truly a great concept.
Their ux of their app is really awful though. There are many problems with the general feel you get (like its not native though I'm pretty sure it isn't a hybrid app.) I'm going to reference one as a comment on the whole, though. When you enter the app there is this huge bar at the top that says 'what's your question.' Now your probably agreeing with me in thinking that having that bar always at the top is referencing some search functionality, but no. It lets you create a new question. But that isn't the part that really bugs me. Less than 1cm from this bar is another button that looks like a compose icon. Yes, you heard me right. There are two buttons within 1cm of each other that have the EXACT same functionality, and they're always at the top of the navigation menu.
I wouldn't really care about this except for the fact that I'm a software engineer myself and I could implement a nicer looking front end to production quality in three months. Tops. And from scratch, too.
Engaging and Simple Although Clunky at Times
This app is built well and for ease of use. I have not had any major issues with the performance of the App and it does a good job of keeping the user updated and involved.
The only cons to the app are as follows:
When you are typing an answer or a comment the text editor used within (however fully featured, which it is) loads strangely sometimes if you leave mid-writing to consult a source or to access another app and come back. The cursor will have moved to the top of the page or sometimes just the top of the paragraph. It also has to reload it entirely which does double as a tool for checking your formatting with links as they don't hyperlink until it reloads like that. Also the interface is clunky at times but mostly in transitioning from different portions of the app.
Beyond that I cant really think of anything negative about the way this app and the Quora service operates.
The most interesting corner of the internet
Quora has some of the most fascinating questions, answers, and people in the world talking about everything imaginable. The community is engaged and involved, and the level of thoughtfulness and intelligence that you will get here is several orders of magnitude above the leading Q&A service.
