JogNog App Review by Josh and Ronin

JogNog App Review by Josh and Ronin

JogNog is an app where users complete quizzes in order to earn coins, points, and towers. Coins can be used to buy things such as extra time on quizzes. Points are used to compare users to others in order to encourage use of the app. Towers serve the same purpose as trophies, which can be upgraded using coins. Students join classes using a randomly generated class code, where the teacher posts quizzes usually consisting of multiple levels usually around 10 questions each.

The app works well. Lag is almost nonexistent, and the app is easy to use once set up. Additionally, the involved competition encourages use of the app. However, there are a few issues. Setup is time consuming and can be confusing to some people. Also, the feature allowing drawing in the screen during a question is extremely laggy, inaccurate, and can't be erased. Other than these few flaws, this is a recommended app.

  1. Hey Josh and Ronin - well written summary of JogNog. Glad to you like it!

    Thanks for your feedback. We are thinking of adding an eraser to the drawing tool in an upcoming release.

    I notice all the towers in the images are grey or black. Have you tried upgrading to color towers or are you just saving your coins?

  2. Thank you for your comment!
    Josh is saving his coins and Ronin has upgraded to color!

    We think an eraser would be really useful, so we are excited to check out that upgrade!
