**Another great Trivia quiz from Tomsoft, the creators of the hugely successful apps Trivia Challenge and Trivia Challenge Lite**
If you think you know how many men have walked on the Moon and how many planets there are in the Solar System, then this is the trivia quiz for you!
Space Trivia is an educational trivia quiz written especially for the iPhone with a great selection of questions about basic astronomy and the history of space exploration. Suitable for Age 12 and older. Learn while you play.
Test your knowledge, compete against time and record your high scores.
Joke Book was developed for the iPhone by Tomsoft - makers of Voice Changer, Ringtone Maker, Trivia Challenge, Joke Book and other great apps.
This program has glaring flaws that should have been addressed before the release, especially given that it is a paid program. 1. Repetition: you will quickly become accustomed to the questions asked as they repeat frequently. Space is a big place and there can be at least thousands of questions to choose from. 2. Answer buttons: often do not display the full answer - sometimes you will see all 3 possible answers read something like "Agency of Spa" and will have to randomly select one. 3. Button depression: buttons should not be final on press - they should be final on release. That way, if you select the wrong one, you can move your finger off. 4. Inaccuracies. There is at least 1 question that I know to be false: the polestar is located in Ursa Minor and not Ursa Major. Lastly, to add some versitility to this program, I would recommend that the trivia be broken up into categories such as Solar System / Space history / Science Fiction / Cosmology / Constellations / etc / ALL CATEGORIES. That way you can set high scores on different aspects of space trivia.
Needs a Serious Upgrade
As mentioned, the game needs to show the correct answer when missed. Plus, I have found at least 3 answers which are incorrectly marked wrong: The Apollo 11 lunar module was named Eagle; the first artificial satellite of Earth was Sputnik I; and the pole star is in the constellation Ursa Minor. Also, several answers are too long to fit on the screen which forces a blind guess. Otherwise, an interesting and worthwhile diversion.
DO NOT RECOMMEND: Needs Work
I was surprised by this as a paid app.
1) question answers cut off so you can't see them clearly,
2) Moves too fast so you can barely see if you got it right or wrong.
3) Doesn't tell you the correct answer
4) Repeats questions frequently.
