Latest Update for Sporcle App

A couple of weeks ago we released a redesigned version of our Trivia by Sporcle app for iOS. It was a big change in style and features from our previous app, and we were excited to get it out the door and into your hands. Unfortunately, when we first released our app, it had a couple of bugs that were causing crashes, so we went back to the drawing board and released a new update that addressed the bugs and user feedback. We love our user feedback, and we’ll continue to listen to you when making updates to the Sporcle app.

We’ve also made an update to our Sporcle Lite app, so when you get a chance, head on over the app store and check them out. Download the Trivia by Sporcle app today!
