I absolutely love this game, but I hate the new update, & will until there are a lot of issues corrected. It was an educational app, now it's a social media app. The font size is so small, I need a magnifying glass to see it. I hate how we can't delete our inbox messages. I don't like how once we finish a game & it goes to the results screen, when we move on to the next game we can't go back to the results screen from the game before, we have to go completely out of the topic. I hate how our stats are set up. They don't show our percentage wins, exact number of games played & our wins/ties/losses, average score, & average answer time. They don't show our individual topic stats like before. The rankings for each individual person doesn't show the exact amount of points they have, it rounds them off. There are a lot of negatives about the update. I don't think it was thought through & tested very well before it was implemented. The only positive thing with the new update is the boosters are gone. I'm sure there will be more small updates in the future so, once all of the issues are corrected, I'll go back to giving it a 5 star rating. But for now, I'm giving it a 3 star rating.
Not so great update
I don't ever write reviews or rate apps, perhaps once or twice in the distant past, but the new update is so awful in so many respects that I felt compelled to complain in the hopes that if enough of us voice our distaste for the new version, they might change things. I won't mention everything, as so many others have already, but I'll mention a couple of irksome changes. I don't like the social media aspect for all the same reasons mentioned by others, the I don't like how the stats are now broken down and preferred being able to see the specific number, the time allotted to read the question has diminished substantially, leaving me in the midst of reading longer questions (let alone glancing at the answers) by the time the timer has started running, and (this one is merely aesthetic) I quite dislike the actual quiz page in which I'm answering questions against an opponent. The colors are unpleasant and the scoring seems more complicated and less than it needs to be. It's similar to how it used to be, yet somehow so much worse. Plus I miss the little clock.
Lots of BAD design decisions
You would think that a highly successful app would have actually asked users what they wanted and want they needed before a major release. Clearly QuizUp decided that they didn’t need to talk to users before venturing out on this highly misguided 2.0 release. The fundamental issue is why people play trivia against other people. It’s different if you know someone already vs. a complete stranger. When I play my son, I want to be able to quickly invite him. (They’ve made that easier.) But for the rest of the world of players, I’m glad they are there, but I have no interest in engaging with them beyond a trivia game.
QuizUp was good because of the content: lots of content, lots of topics. That aspect has gotten lost in this update. I can’t easily see the topic list. Meanwhile, the ability to add new content to stale topics has not be incorporated. Instead of trying to create a fake and forced reason for people to have a different type of virtual social experience, it would have been far more effective to use the money on building communities for content gurus.
