No-Win Scenario In The Challenge
Well, the old version of the weekly Challenge on the app worked great; since I stay up on politics, I usually got 5/5 correct (and was proud of my Wonk status). But since they re-vamped the app, the Challenge will give you a question which you answer correctly, but you get marked as 'incorrect', despite what the correct answer is (usually this is on question 4 or 5). Until this is fixed with an update, I can't give it more than 2 stars... I'll amend this review if the app gets updated.
It's okay but...
I like the weakly challenge but for the love of god get rid of the 10 second timer. For one, why do you assume everyone reads an entire paragraph at lightning speed? I'm an okay reader and couldn't get through half of them before running out of time.
Helpful but lacking
Unless, I'm missing something this app does not allow me to share findings on social media. I would like to use it to dispel myths and fake news. Please correct.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
