'TriviaPad' is a free multiplayer real-time trivia game for the iPad that is not only about the right answer but also about being quick.
TriviaPad is played in ‘Trivia-rooms’ and all players in a room have to answer the same question at the same time, with the quicker correct answer getting you the higher score. Incorrect answers score negative points but if things get too difficult you’ve got three lifelines at your disposal. There’s also a chat feature to communicate with the other players - discuss your game plan or simply talk about the weather.
148apps.com said this about TriviaPad: 'The game includes trivia in all kinds of categories like entertainment and sports. The questions are presented to everyone in a room at the same time. Players can chat with the other players they’re playing against while answering questions. The iPad’s large screen is used optimally to constantly display three important windows: chat, the trivia, and score. And, similar to Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?, players are given three help buttons that include 50% Joker, Reveal, and Undo.'
Lots of trivia fun and a chat!
I read about this on appadvice and downloaded on the first day. They seem to have had some technical issues with the server or something that day but now everything works smoothly and the game is a lot of fun. I like the questions (there seem to be a lot of them, the never repeat...although some seem to have some formatting errors, hope they'll iron that out soon) and the chat is really great, you can talk to the other players while playing which makes it a very 'social' trivia experience.
Wait until the bugs are ironed out
Game only allows you to play as a guest. If you create an ID and log in then you're not allowed to join any rooms. Part of the appeal of the game is that it keeps a play history so if you have to constantly play as a guest then a large part of the game is missing. Disappointing to say the least. When you do play as a guest and get to experience the game play you can see the potential so for that I will give it more than one star. One more thing, some of the longer answers are cut off and there's no obvious way I can figure out to see the full answer.
NO STARS, Unplayable ...don't bother
Really? This developer gets lucky enough to get a write up in App Advice and they release an app that is unplayable. I created an account and it wouldn't let me log into a room with it...I tried many times. So, I logged in as a guest and it finally let me in the room, then it would flash the question for a millisecond and then disappear. Absolutely horrible...get your act together before releasing to the world...you don't get a second chance to make a first impression. And I was really looking forward to this. What a shame.
