Belfast start-up launch UK’s first social quiz App
Quiz fans across the globe can now test their trivia knowledge on the free-to-download QuizFortune App which was launched today on the iTunes App store and includes over 100,000 brain teasers.
The brainchild of Vincent Rainey, a quizmaster with 30 years experience, QuizFortune has been developed over two years at the company’s headquarters in Belfast. The App poses over 100,000 challenging questions across 700 topics from ABBA to zoology, animation to ZZ Top, suitable for all ages and abilities.
One of the most exciting new businesses to emerge from Belfast’s vibrant start-up scene, QuizFortune’s initial investment came from friends, family and local angel investors. The App is now set to compete with some of the world’s largest trivia apps over the coming weeks and months. Online mobile social trivia is the next big thing and behind this simple, engaging fun trivia game is an exciting new technology platform.
The platform has the ability to:
• Enable contributors to author content anywhere in the world
• Curate, quality check, store and rapidly deploy question-and-answer content into apps
• Serve fun, engaging quizzes to mobile devices anywhere, anytime
• Measure and monitor player performance and deliver detailed stats about game play
• Create ‘Quiz Rooms’, a personal way for players to host short, competitive quizzes with leader boards for their online friends.
The app allows friends to compete with one another and issue challenges via Facebook on their favourite subjects. The possibilities are limitless as players may be challenged on what they want, when they want it.
“I have always known that playing quizzes gets people hooked. It’s just so natural for people to challenge themselves and their friends. It’s great to see people having fun while at the same time extending their knowledge.” says QuizFortune founder Vincent Rainey.
The company has created a new way of engaging with an audience and is excited about its initial app which demonstrates the platform’s potential. What’s trending today can literally be packaged into a quiz and appear live in the app within minutes. A competition can be organized spontaneously and delivered across the world and placed in the palm of your hand.
