Refined user interface in both Guess & Know and Guess & Know Companion
- When we realized the extent to which iOS 7 overhauled the user experience, we realized we were going to have to make some significant adjustments ourselves to keep the look of the app consistent with the iOS adornments, so we embarked on a top-to-bottom review and found this was an ideal time to add some ease-of-use features for the host.
- You'll notice most of all during game play that the host has on-screen controls for returning to add more players, to pull down the scoreboard and to move between rounds.
- We spent a fair amount of time solidifying the communication within the app and out to the Guess & Know Companion players to ensure that there are no surprises during game play.
- Lastly, we did build and add in an analytics package to help us help you. Nothing that identifies you personally is ever sent to our analytics server. We only note things like your having used a feature within the app, or that you added a category to a new game. We do not send any of the text that you enter anywhere in the game or names of players or anything like that. Our analytics server does see the publicly-routable IP address but since quite often your use of the game is on a private network, the most we could almost rely on from the IP address that we can see is your geographic location. But other than reward to the development team for discovering that folks in Jakarta are now using the app they labored over, we don't do anything with IP addresses from the analytics server. And if all of this doesn't have you reassured, you can turn off analytics reporting in Settings. That would make our team sad, though... even though they'll never know you turned it off because we don't even report that back to the analytics server!
