Review: Range of questions make QuizUp fun for everyone

If you love testing your knowledge on various topics, you’ll love QuizUp. The free trivia app available for iOS has 100,000 questions in more than 250 categories. Users can connect through Facebook to challenge their friends or play random people around the world in real time.

Users pick a category from general knowledge to movies, arts and business. From there, they are matched up with an opponent, and the game begins. Each round has seven questions with just 10 seconds to answer each one. All of the questions are multiple-choice, which makes it easy for anyone to make an educated guess at the very least.

Users earn points in different categories and can advance to new levels with fun titles to match your topic strengths like “Minister for Magic” for the Harry Potter wiz or “Pizzarus Rex” for the expert on snacks.

The app also has a social networking aspect allowing its users to connect with one another through open discussions about each topic and the private chat feature.

The best part of QuizUp, though, is its wide range of topics and questions, which makes it fun for everyone. The app is easy to navigate and aesthetically pleasing to the eye with fun colors, simple graphics and easy-to-read typography.

So, whether you’re a trivia pro or just want to challenge your friends to a friendly game, QuizUp is definitely worth the download.
