Today I am proud to announce a brand new version of interact.
When we started Interact, we never anticipated the number of amazing people who would come to know and love the tool. It was built in the hopes that a few hundred quizzes would be made with it, but as of last week there have been over 10,000 quizzes created. The app wasn’t built to handle that kind of volume, and for the last few months we’ve scrambled to add functionality to keep up with your suggestions for improvement. However, it came to a point where we were essentially stuck in a hamster wheel, working at max capacity but not getting anywhere due to the amount of hacked together code that was stacked on itself.
Thus it came to a point in December 2014 when we realized that it was time for a functional change. For the last three months our developers have been heads-down, recreating interact from the ground up to handle much more capacity and make it much easier to implement features that have been on the backburner for a long time.
This is brand new, and I’m sure there will be kinks in the first few weeks from launch, but rest assured when all is said and done it will be a reliable, beautiful app for creating quizzes. I thank you for your patience as we make this transition and for using interact in the first place – without you there would be no interact, and I am grateful.
For the most part the app hasn’t changed, the main purpose of doing this rebuild is to make it easier to built out all your amazing feature suggestions in the weeks and months to come. The one thing that has been added though is the ability to work with your team on Interact, which I’m really excited about.
You’ll find that option in the “team” tab under your dashboard.
Please bear with us as we work out all the kinks with the new version, we will do our absolute best to make this a smooth transition.
