Voted #3 top trivia app of 2011 by bestappever.com
Ranked amongst the top trivia games in over 50 different countries. Recently as high as #4 on the charts in the US appstore.
"Triple Entendre is a daunting, brainteasing challenge for anyone patient and fastidious enough to give it a go." - 5 stars from A.T. Faust, Appadvice.com
"If you like difficult brain-teasers... Triple Entendre is probably right up your alley." - Jason Parker, CNET
"I’m a total sucker for riddles and totally addicted to Triple Entendre." - Leanne Lofte, iMore.com (the iPhone blog)
If you've ever played an online riddle like notpr0n, godtower or qwyzzle, you'll love this game. The first riddle game of its kind for your ios devices. Triple Entendre is a riddle, a puzzle, a quiz, and a trivia game all rolled into one. Each level includes a combination of clues and photos where you need to figure out not just what the answer is... but what the question is. Unlike traditional trivia games where a simple internet search will give you a correct answer, your problem solving skills will be needed to even start a web search. Web searching is encouraged in Triple Entendre and we have even taken advantage of your 3g or WiFi connection by building in an internal web search. We hope that your brain power and useless trivia knowledge will be truly tested.
Currently 75 puzzles long, but we have frequent updates planned with more puzzles. Triple Entendre supports Game Center with achievements and a leaderboard. Tens of thousands have tried, but so far, nobody has completed the game.
ATTENTION USERS: This is ad supported to pay for the constant updates and FREE added levels. Due to customer demands, we have released a PRO version without ads for a small surcharge... or just purchase the cheaper version with ads. Your choice.

level 3 - what's that number? how many zeroes does it have?
level 4 - a Polish dialect found in the Pomorze region.
What's New in Version 2.6
Added new features, such as the skip level button, facebook sharing, and more. Also new levels!
Triple Entendre has a great concept and a good execution. It's a little clunky and certainly doesn't take advantage of many fancier features of the iPad or iPhone. But in terms of brain challenges, I've found nothing else out there to compare.
So why so few stars? Because every app needs tending, and this one doesn't get any. The developers have essentially disowned this app on their own web site and forum, and provide no ongoing support. In the final update months ago, the devs overshot the difficulty level and created a few unsolvable puzzles. They also failed to correct some earlier errors and problems. When they couldn't deal with the backlash from their users and also realized this wasn't the moneymaker they hoped for, they gave up.
There was a once-thriving fan community out there on the web, and you can still find help and hints if you try. But the die-hards have lost interest and are drifting away, defeated by 77 and 81. Sad.
This is a great compilation of riddles. The questions are like a riddle and a scavenger hunt, where you are given certain clues and must go research to figure out what they mean, and then infer what both the question and answer are. The riddles take you fascinating places to learn about lots of interesting things. And the difficult questions will sit on your brain for days as you try to piece out what comes next.
They have also done a great job telling you when you are on the right track, to avoid the "false negative" problem a lot of guessing games fall into. If you give an answer that is almost right, they'll nudge you to keep going rather than letting you think that you're in the wrong mindset.
This really fun!
Played this alone a few days before a family trip and got thru several levels. Then played with my niece and nephew and now they're addicted too. Get a real rush from solving some of the puzzles! Recommend planning to play on iPad with the split screen, on iPhone it's a bit tedious switching from puzzle to web
