New feature: zondle Teacher Goodies, finally something for students to spend their zollars on!

We know that it has been a long time in coming, but we have finally managed to develop the zondle Teacher Goodies.  You decide on a real world treat for your students.  It might be an early lunch break or being first in the lunch queue.  You set that up on zondle and your students can redeem their zollars in exchange for that Teacher Goodie.

This video shows how it works.  We look forward very much to hearing how you use this in your classrooms.  The possibilities are endless J

iOS7 Issues on zondle Mobile resolved and awaiting review from Apple

Anyone who downloaded iOS7 a couple of days back will have noticed that login was failing with the existing version of zondle Mobile.  It wouldn't affect users who are already logged into the app.

We have now identified and solved the problem and have uploaded the updated version of the app to Apple for review.  They normally take between 2 and 10 days to review and approve the app.  So, assuming that they approve the app without issue, you should be able to update your devices in between 2 and 10 days from now.

In the meantime the existing app should work fine on any devices running iOS6.  Our thanks for your patience if you were one of the iOS7 early adopters.  

Updates also included in this version are: 
  • Updated look and feel 
  • Support for new question types (English only):
    - type the answer
    - when the word disappears, spell it
    - listen to the word, then spell it
    - type the missing word 
  • New "my progress" section 
  • Fixed aspect ratio bug in image based multiple choice 
  • Added support for audio question references
We will update you again when Apple approve the app :)

Audio question references now supported on zondle!

We have been asked a number of times if we could support audio question references on zondle.  Today we are pleased to say that we have done that for you :)

Audio question references appear at the beginning of a question and enable the player to hear a piece of audio before answering the question.  This is ideal for language based subjects or music.

This video shows how you use them.  We hope you enjoy this new feature and look forward to hearing how you get on!
