Softonic’s App of the Week highlights some of the most unique, coolest, and most interesting mobile apps for Android and iOS. In case you missed the news last week, the popular iOS game QuizUp has finally landed on Android, bringing this addictive quiz game multiplatform and coincidentally, making it our App of the Week.
Why is it so special?
QuizUp is not your average quiz game. Well, it kind of is, as far as answering questions go, but it’s got a lot of extra features that make it a lot more appealing to play, not to mention a great user interface.
Its two biggest bonuses are the number of quizzes it has, and the fact that you can play against your friends. QuizUp has a huge database of quizzes for almost any topic you can think of, and the quizzes are limited to a mere 7 questions per match, making gameplay really quick.
If you’ve got a competitive streak, you can challenge (and re-challenge) friends, and see a comparative history of each match you’ve played. You move up in the ranks as you play more quizzes in the same category.
Overall, QuizUp is a great game to kill some time, play with friends, and completely geek out on your favorite topics.
