1) Can I try your apps for free?
All of our paid apps now have “freemium” versions so you can see how they work before you buy them (but, of course, free versions have less material in them.)
2) Why do your apps have so much trivia ?
Our apps are designed especially for people (like students and other quizbowl players) who need to quickly learn basic information in a subject. Thus, many clues may seem “trivial”, but those who use our apps for law school, AP/CLEP review, National History Bowl/Bee practice, etc. really like them. We’ve even had a 4th-grader at the elementary-school finals of the National History Bee use our U.S. Presidents app as his main study aid!
Every well-educated person, from 4th grade on up, ought to know the easiest 6 clues for every single thing contained in every single education app we make. Thus, the app is very useful for anyone who wants to be well-educated– plus, it’s helpful for Jeopardy!
3) How do I use the apps most efficiently?
Each app’s “instructions” page tells how to do that and explains the level we think you should reach to become average, good or expert.
Playing 10-15 minutes a day should show clear improvement within a week and quizbowl-level improvement within 30 days. Then you can get questions from our partners at Avery Enterprises.
If studying for exams, study the material/works/people covered in class and during pre-exam review. Show your instructor the clues in the study mode and ask which clues are most likely to be tested. Play as described above.
4) What apps are next on the horizon ?
With 10 apps now available in each of our platforms (including 1 in Spanish and 1 in Portuguese), we’re taking a break for now. But we’re always looking for opportunities to partner with established organizations to combine our apps with their marketing reach. Contact us if you have a great idea!
