Android: In a couple of brief months, HQ Trivia has gone from a cool new app to a full-fledged phenomenon, pulling in a whole lot of hundreds of gamers a number of occasions per day for the possibility to win some money by answering reside trivia questions. Regardless of all that success you continue to can’t play with out a non-iOS gadget, however fortunately for all of the Android followers there’s already another—and it’s fairly good.
Yesterday, I downloaded The Q (brief for query), a free app for Android and iOS with the very same premise as HQ Trivia. A number asks a collection of a number of alternative questions in actual time and the winners cut up the prize cash. It’s not fairly as polished as HQ and the host isn’t as skilled, however in a couple of methods The Q may very well be higher.
For one, you may play it on Android. That opens up the HQ expertise to an enormous new viewers that was beforehand overlooked within the chilly, a minimum of till the promised Android model arrives. The Q additionally has a smaller person base (a couple of thousand individuals logged on with me as an alternative of HQ’s typical 300,000-person video games), so it doesn’t really feel as aggressive. Lastly, the inexperienced hosts means you’ll spend much less time listening to corny jokes and extra time truly answering trivia questions.
On the draw back, The Q did have some lag, however not more than a daily spherical of of HQ Trivia. It’s additionally so much much less polished, with a boxy gray design, and the prizes are so much smaller (a couple of hundred bucks as an alternative of hundreds).
For now, although, The Q is the best choice on Android in order for you a style of that new trivia app all of your iPhone-owning associates are obsessive about.
