Apparently J! episodes are on Drivetime?

The app has teamed up with Sony to celebrate Jeopardy’s 36th season by giving users free daily episodes to play.
I wonder if these are S36 games or archived or category hodgepodges...not quite sold on installing the app (if I even can; my phone tops out at Android 4)

I played the free J! game yesterday. It was ok - too easy (multiple choice). I went all Holzhauer on it and got a perfect score+all-in Final. There are fewer questions than a televised game, and easier.

Their regular game is actually more fun (free new game daily). 21 questions on 3 themes, most multiple choice, but a few full answer. The hosts have good banter and extra information that makes it informative (like some of the trivia podcasts). I've played 5 or 6 days. You can speed up the app if you don't have the patience.

The conceit of the app is that it uses voice recognition so you can use it while driving (presumably with bluetooth).

Subscription to the app is expensive though. 12.99$ a month is not coming from me.

Well, that's disappointing.
