What's New in Version 2.3.4
+ Game plan for this update: - Fix bugs - Make more stable - ??? - Profit
Death of a once fine app ...!
No improvements from previous version (see following comments) ... ... ... ... ... ...
Still crashes immediately on iPhone 4s (iOS 8.3). Nothing new. ..... ..... .....
Crashes immediately on (attempted) startup on my iPone 4s running iOS 8.3. Starts/runs OK on my iPhone 6s running iOS 9.3.2 ... all, FWIW. ..... ..... .....
As with the previous update, there is no new functionality, no new (or resurrected) features, and no improved GAMEplay. MAYBE the "developers" squashed some bugs, but who knows since they don't bother to identify them ... .......... .......... ...........
New "update" adds nothing in the way of improving gameplay. Now, QuizUp "hangs" more frequently, BTW. Oh, and you need to turn off the stupid in-game "music" from settings now (music on is the default). Nothing else to say ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ...
Update adds no improvements. Still a hodge-podge social media mash-up. Still cannot see who you have challanges out to. Etc. Blahh ...!! ... ... ... ...
It used to be great. Then came all the "social media" crap. Then came the ads. Then came the REALLY OBNOXIOUS ADS. Now we have a crap app. Thanks so bmuch to the so-called "developers", who can't even keep the app from frequently crashing and/or hanging. But boy, can they ever pump out those ADS ...
Interesting Question, Well Intentioned Modes but Various Annoying Problems: A Review of Quiz Up
Although this app offers excellent questions and touches on interesting subjects, it still is terribly flawed.
Take the multiplayer and single player modes for instance. The idea is awesome but the wait times are excessive and the penalties of getting an answer wrong are ridiculous. The "pay 10 gems to continue" system is one of such penalties and it, in my opinion, is completely unnecessary since single player is used as a means of practicing for multiplayer.
In multiplayer the idea of playing against people on another hemisphere is awesome... but, again, the wait times are torturous.
On the subject of adds, we can understand the need of advertising as a means of finding a way to make the app lucrative, but there are some adds that actually block answers and others that decrease the game's overall enjoyability. For instance, on one question on the subject of the Maori people, the 2 lower alternatives were completely blocked by an add. Unfortunately the right answer was one of those two and the time lost due to redirection consumed the time meter, inducing game over.
Should these problems be addressed, this app would be worthy of 5 stars.
Thanks for Reading😉
Sold its Soul
This app used to be amazing. A pinnacle for what an app could aspire to be. I'm not sure why but the developers have seen fit to remove useful features, while adding others that diminish what the app is.
- Creating your own topics is pointless and detracts from the feeling of authenticity and sorting through these fake topics while trying to find a real one is annoying
- Everything became obnoxious and went downhill after you were able to follow topics and post content to topic pages. Now we have to deal with a dashboard full of selfies, spam, screenshots, and worse, all because following a topic is the new form of a favorite topic.
- Glad to see we're still getting match ups with people across the globe with poor internet service causing annoying game lags and disconnects.
- Where'd the in depth game stats go? Why can I see people posting screenshots of their win but not how fast I answer questions?
- Before, the app made money selling boosts to gain experience faster. Now they have ads as well. Greed is unattractive, and both are awful features, so the app should stick with just one.
In this, QuizUp has followed SnapChat into the app-grave trying to rebrand itself as more than it is, and in doing so losing itself.
