New app: QuizUp

Post by georgetrev »

There's a new app for iDevices out there called QuizUp. You can choose a topic that you think is your most strongest and have a trivia bout with a random person or one of your friends (similar to NBC's Million Second Quiz app). There are over 250+ topics to choose from.

I cannot believe it took almost two hours for somebody to make such a retort!

If I had 50 cents for every math question I got right, I'd have $6.30 by now.

I know even less about Spelling. Beverly Hills 90210, and that's about all I'm aware of.

Gee, am I beating the smart kids for remembering "Back to You" (and, having been a Frasier fan, was anticipating it, but since it was on Wednesday nights, couldn't catch it (and didn't have a PVR at the time))

Ha! GRAMMER and SPELLING would make two good side-by-side categories. I suppose it would be too much to have two entertainment related categories in a single round, though. If there were a HOLLYWOOD JEOPARDY! spin-off, they could do a whole round with GRAMMER, SPELLING, PUNK'D YOU-ATION, CAPITOL, SIN TAX, and THE WRITERS' STRIKE.

They should make an online version. I don't have a phone, and do not plan on getting one. I shall follow the example of Eli Barrieau from the 2013 Teachers Tournament.

I downloaded and logged on by way of Facebook, so I don't have a user name. Looks fun, though, so thanks for letting us know!

I saw this app recently became available for Android but I just FINALLY got a phone new enough to play it! I'm not sure how to add friends yet on there. I've been playing the grammar category this morning.

A friend just turned me on to the Android version a few days ago. It's a pretty cool app. Next time I'm on I'll look for you. I'm not sure what logon ID I used.

Just got this for Android today and it's amazingly addictive. Downloading it at work was probably a mistake.

I can be found as jjwaymee. It's definitely addicting. Someday when I have time I may contribute content to a category or two that look like they could be enhanced.

Don't know if I mentioned it, but I'm on there as well. Under my Facebook account (David Kendall), but not sure how to make it more accessible to friend people I'm not friends with (yet) on FB.

When I first got it I loved it, but honestly with my busy schedule I haven't had nearly the time for it that I'd like. However, honestly, when I see that friends have challenged me in X category makes me much more interested in forcing some time for it (hint, hint)
