Trivie: iPhone Apps Written Review

Trivie for iPhone

Reviewed by Luke Patrick

Here lately, we’ve been seeing a whole lot of applications that use online capabilities to allow you to trade turns with some other individual toting an iPhone—whether this is a friend or a random player. We like this set-up, and we like what apps like Words with Friends and Draw Something have done with it. Now, we have a trivia game to add to the pile, though. It’s called Trivie and it’s by the developer of the same name. We like what the app has to offer, and if you’ve been wishing for a cool way to play trivia games online, there’s really no better option. Best of all, you’ll find our full review of the app below!

Concept and Gameplay

As stated, Trivie follows the same blissful rule as other more popular apps like Words with Friends. The concept behind this is relatively simple: You play your turn, and then send off the results to your competitor. Then, they do the same, and you swap back and forth until the game is over. Within Trivie, though, you aren’t drawing quick doodles to play dictionary. No, instead you’re going through rounds of trivia questions, answering them as quickly as you can in turn to earn points. Your opponent does the same, and at the end of each round, your results are compared. Play a set number of rounds, and the winner is the one with the most points. It’s really that simple! It’s a lot of fun to play, and it’s offset by the ability to purchase more trivia categories and questions packs. Each player brings their own unique set to the table, which means you’ll be answering questions covering a wide range of topics. And with coin earning gameplay fueling your category hoarding dreams, we imagine you’ll be getting a lot of replay out of Trivie.

Design and Interface

If we’ve learned anything from the recent rash of games within this genre, it’s that you really do need to have a good looking app. Thankfully, Trivie delivers on all accounts. It’s got a very Draw Something inspired interface, but we don’t see this as a knock or a rip-off. Rather, the smooth menus and friendly dashboard make it easier to track your existing games, when it’s your move, and your current point totals. We also liked the sheer breadth of cards and questions: We have yet to play the same question, which gives us hope for future play throughs.

Overall Value

In our eyes, 99 cents is a fair price for this app. We feel comfortable with Trivie as a at this price and you most surely get your money’s worth out of the app.  99 cents is a cheap cost to play this much trivia with your friends, via your iPhone.  There is also a FREE version of Trivie located here Trivie Free So all in all, Trivie earns a solid recommendation from us here at the iPhone App Review.

TrivieTrivie requires iOS 5.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
