Kwiziq rewards for investors, improved accent picker and other news

Crowdfunding

We have some great news for users: we’ve added awesome investor rewards to our crowdfunding campaign. Now, as well as shares in Kwiziq, we’re giving investors various levels of Kwiziq Premium access, all the way up to Lifetime Free Access for you and three friends!

Behind the scenes

We’ve been beavering away on some important admin functions to that won’t be visible to you, but will ensure we can easily handle the extra demand being generated by our accelerating customer growth!

Crowdfunding is a lot of extra work and therefore slowing us down a little, but once it completes the extra funds available will help us accelerate R&D and get some fantastic new features, functions and apps out, as well as helping us to add Spanish to our available languages.
