What's New in Version 1.02
Minor bug fixes
There are many questions that are frivolous but most are informative. As a result of the UHQ I was compelled to memorize all 44 presidents in order, and their accomplishments. I am now able to share this information with my son and grandson. I majored in Political Science and World History in college and the UHQ has filled in many blanks in my education. I am on your "leader board" and have played over 18,000 games. Good way to pass time and also gain knowledge. Many "factoids" are useless information.
As dull and unimaginative as the cable channel that spawned it
Good news, bad news.
The good news is the field is wide open for a clever collection of graduate students to whip up a fun, irresistible history quiz app that is delightful to play as it educates. The bad news is this app isn't any of those things. A limited basic bunch of middle school history questions that exhaust themselves quickly and begin very soon to recycle.
Dull history, duller game.
Dreaming of someone seeing the possibilities and creating a game that soars. This limp thing can't even crawl out of its shell.
Everyone is saying this app needs wifi to work, but that is not the case. I play both single and multiplayer on 3G often. The questions aren't quite as repetitive as everyone is making them out to be, but there are times when questions come up more than once. HOWEVER, that is not within the same game. I personally love this app, but there has been an issue with it since I last updated. While playing in multiplayer, the "View Stats" button has somehow moved behind my answer, and I therefore cannot click on it to see how the other players are responding to the questions. That is VERY annoying! I tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it, but to no avail. I wonder if I'm the only one with this problem. Either way, it's still a great app.
