Challenge errors driving me crazy.

This happens more often than it should - the challenges not correctly identifying the correct answers.

I've created it in two correct ways, and still can't get it to answer correctly.

let bestSmartphone = "iPhone" and let bestSmartphone: String = "iPhone"

both have given me the 'Bummer' answer repeatedly across two different browsers and sessions.


let bestSmartphone = "iPhone"

We are working on a solution to this right now. We should it have in place in the next 2 hours. Sorry for the trouble.

The fix is now in place. Happy learning!

Awesome - I'm back in business... thanks for the quick fix!

the error its in place again please help us

@David Lizarraga I tried today and it worked fine for me. What kind of error are you seeing?

This is extremely odd. I completed this challenge a couple of weeks ago and it worked.

I tried it again and did everything you did as well and it did not work.

I think it's not on your end and maybe we could get a Treehouse Staff Member to take a look at this. :)
