QuizUp is a quiz game where players compete in real-time in head-to-head trivia battles. QuizUp is fast becoming a social network because contestants can chat with each other after matches, challenging their Facebook friends and leave posts on the game’s discussion boards
How to Play: register and choose from one of more than 300 topics. Challenge someone you know or let the game choose an opponent for you. Each player is shown 10 questions in a row and have only seconds to pick each right answer – so no time to Google the answer.
QuizUp Creator Thor Fridriksson says, “Trivia is one of the most inherently social activities you can do. When families are watching Jeopardy on TV and somebody knows an answer, they shout it out. People want to show that they know stuff.”
Another reason the game has been so successful is the vast amount of questions available, some 160,000 and growing. Unlike most trivia games that have fixed categories and questions, the public can submit questions and get them added to the game..
What the Public is Saying:
A worthy game for the busy and addicted. Love to drop in for a few questions while waiting for the bus or hang for hours trying to be the best among my friends.
Compatibility: Requires iOS 5.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.
Right now QuizUp is only available for Apple products but an Android version is in the works.
