Ratings and Reviews
I have generally enjoyed reading Quora. The ancient history section is particularly interesting for me. Today I read an interesting piece on politics called the White Elephant in the Room which discussed how people in forum should take a breath and relax and show respect and truly read what colleagues are saying. He suggested people might actually change their opinion on certain matters. I remember when I would drive from my home in New York to Yale University, I would listen to an Evangelical channel. My colleague it’s whom I shared an office asked me why. I need to know what people of a very different opinion think
The section on education is overly repetitive, and most of the questions could be answered by a simple google.
Though there is a great deal of repetition in general, there are some interesting points and opinions. I don’t know if this site has an administrator (which it needs for the repetitive questions) or works by some algorithm. Anyway, no one is forced to respond to every question that might be one’s area.
The atmosphere is relaxed and have not seen any disrespect or nastiness that are part of other forums.
Frustrating to Navigate
After having used the Quora app for about two years, I have come across a few annoying issues that really ruin the experience of the app. Firstly, every time I open the app, I have to wait for the app the respond to my touches. It can take anywhere from around 10 seconds to almost 20 seconds. I don’t know what it’s doing in the background, but it’s annoying. Next, when I want to search for a question, it seems to freak out and freeze the whole app. It opens the keyboard, and I can type on it, but there is a massive delay from when I press a key to it being displayed on the screen; it only happens when I open the app after not using it for a while. Next, very often when I am scrolling down through my feed and I tap on the “read more” on an answer, it doesn’t respond to my touch as if the read more button doesn’t exist. I can tap and tap as many times I want, but it will not open the answer. Tapping on the answer itself does nothing either. This happens randomly and I don’t know why or what triggers it. The last issue is the most annoying of them all. When I’m reading the comments, and I accidentally swipe left or right just a little bit, the whole app with hang and not respond at all. I have to manually close the app and reopen it again so it can work. These issues sometimes hold me back from even opening the app. Overtime, it seems that more problems are being made than fixed with every new feature update.

Forces giving personal data just to read posts?!
used Apple ID to login and the app FORCED me to provide my email address and name anyway. It said "optional" but after many tries, 10 minutes of waiting for the app to spin after trying to skip entering an email address (defeating the point of using Apple ID to login) I entered a random email address and I was treated with several minutes dealing with captcha crap... really?! If they have so many issues controlling fraud and/or Quora isn't sophisticated enough to deal with modern threats that they require more captcha tricks than I've ever seen I'm definitely not trusting any content... and most definitely not posting or providing my info. I see the app has high ratings... it might deserve them once you jump through all the hoops and provide personal data, but after such an inconvenient and annoying process FORCING login, FORCING giving personal data and giving info I don't want to give just to read something, I am deleting. There are far too many legit platforms I can use that don't do this... I'm surprised so many use Quora... sheep I imagine. Nevermind...I just skimmed/read a ton of so reviews... they are reviewing posts on Quora not the app or experience with the app. In fact, I stopped trying to reviews that weren't about content on Quora - only found a couple about Quora itself and they were 1-star.
