Trivia with Pals
iPhone Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
Trivia with Pals, from E5 Interactive LLC, is a brand new trivia app that’s perfect for all of you “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire” fans who’ve had an itch to scratch for years. The app delivers fast paced trivia goodness that’s sure to keep you Google-ing at lightning speeds to keep you at the top of your game.
The app has a plethora of modes, bonuses, boosts and incentives to keep you hooked, and is bound to attract a cult following with enough time.
Trivia with Pals is perfect for game night or a few minutes of down time during your daily routine. You can connect directly with peers over Facebook, or connect asynchronously with computer-generated opponents.
The Triva with Pals’ community is bound to grow pretty large, especially considering the “Pocketchange” feature that allows users to compete for real awards and prizes.
Concept and Functionality:
The idea of trivia apps is nothing entirely new, but the scope and ambition with which Trivia with Pals is launching is quite impressive. With new questions added weekly and a growing user base, this app has the potential to become the ubiquitous trivia game for all iOS and Android Users.
Functionality is generally fluid, although the screen can get a bit clogged with options and buttons, sometimes making it difficult to progress directly toward the next game. Additionally, many buttons take you abruptly out of the app and into your Safari or preferred server, which can also be a bit of a distraction.
After a few tries you learn to navigate the app properly, and then Trivia with Pals really shines.
This app is free and you’ve got nothing to lose. The IQ score is a bit inflated (those of you with an IQ of over 140 are probably less likely to be addicted to pop-trivia in the first place) but the general entertainment value of the app is extremely solid.
There are different boosts like “Common Cents” and “Power-Ups” that will keep each round different, and the questions include a lot of variation to keep you on your toes. We definitely recommend finding a friend to compete with, as the personal competitive factor adds a healthy amount of excitement to the game.
As the gamer community grows, this app will be something to watch. Trivia with Pals isn’t doing anything new, but its rebranding Trivia with unmatched vigor that’s bound to create ripples.
Trivia with Pals is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Requires iOS 6.0 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
