App to Look For: Trivia with Sporcle for Mobile
By G+ Author: Jacquelyn Tanner.
So I’m not sure what the scope of Sporcle.com’s popularity is but what I am sure about is that me and my friends loved it in high-school and that I love it now. For those of you who have never been on Sporcle.com it provides a variety of fun trivia games. The games vary in theme from Corporate Logos, to History of the 19th Century. The games are set up in a user friendly way (even online) so that it isn’t tedious or boring to type in your answers. Trust me when I say its one of the far more productive sites to get addicted to.
I recently discovered Sporcle had an app. I discovered it because I couldn’t get enough of Sporcle on the web and decideded to search the app store for it…and alas. The app is $1.99 in the app store and is far from as good as the website but it definitely gets the job done. The app is not as good as the site, for starters, because It does not offer all of the games. It offers a good handful from each category, recently
added, and popular, but still not all Sporcle is capable of. It is also not as good as the site because it uses that whole coin system. When you purchase the app you receive 300 coins, each game is 2 coins, and you receive more coins everyday. The coins are not a deal breaker; I have never gotten remotely close to running out of coins and trust me I play more than you could even imagine.
The app has a good user experience. It is easy to navigate through, loads relatively quickly, and has big clear words and images. Moral of the story is…if you enjoy Sporcle.com or trivia you will enjoy the Sporcle app. It is available for both iPhone and Android (though from scanning the reviews it looks like the Android version has a lot more problems).
