Keeps you sharp, and prods one to pay attention...


I really enjoy testing myself with the Newsmeister quizzes; I'm a real current affairs junkie, and try to stay as informed as possible within the constraints of daily life. Sometimes the quiz points out something that's occurred that I wasn't aware of, and I like the additional resource to my personal newsfeed. Plus, the quiz format keeps you on your toes--I expect to be a Sunday Morning News roundtable pundit any day now!

I like the news quiz format. I used to play a similar app years ago (“RSS feed”???) but looked recently and could not find it, so loaded this app instead. It’s fun, and the content is good, but i am not as interested in the fancy graphics. I like that you can link to the story for more info.

Refreshingly Different and Intelligent


Interesting and fun. Daily quiz helps keep you informed on national and global news and challenges you to match your scores against others based on geographic location. Simple yet elegant design that appeals to people with a brain. Works flawlessly. A refreshingly intelligent app.
