OneExtraLap is officially launching!

OneExtraLap is a social quizzing app I made. It was my first ever web app. Designing, developing, and marketing it was so exhilarating and nerve-wracking. I learned HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP, and MySQL along the way as well.

Over the past 8 months, OneExtraLap has gone from a tiny sprinkle idea in my brain, to an addictive, high-quality beta community with hundreds of beta testers from around the globe. After rewritten the codebase twice, gone over a user interface redesign, today, I am officially launching the site to public, and give you the ability to access this everybody-loved community that offers great quizzes that made by great people.

First and foremost, I want to thank, again, to our responsible early adopters who had been with me and OneExtraLap since the very beginning. From all the positive comments, I have the momentum to keep moving forward. From all the constructive feedback, I discover the correct way to make the site better and better. I really appreciate all the time they put in testing OneExtraLap, they just helped an already-great community become even greater.

Without further ado, I am going to introduce OneExtraLap to all new folks that never heard about us but want to give us a try:

Unlike other quizzing applications, OneExtraLap gives you a whole new social quizzing experience. You can take content-rich, meaningful quizzes that are made by your friends, or you can share some of your wisdom by creating quizzes as well. Plus, all activities are incorporated into cool game mechanics, such as points and badges. The more you do, the more you earn! And it is addictive!

So why not signing up? :)
