Think you know your movie trivia? Think you know more than your friends? Put it to the test on the new IMDb app that just launched this week called, simply, IMDb Trivia. The app itself is a free download on the iTunes store but it also has in-app purchasable question packs if you want more. The app is actually very well designed and has random trivia questions for movies, TV and everything in-between, with various game types beyond just multiple choice. If you're a die-hard movie fan and an iPhone/iPad owner (like myself), you definitely need to download this, as you might get addicted and play it non-stop through the weekend.
If you already want to download IMDb Trivia now and start playing, click on any of the screenshots below to be taken to the App Store page. Thanks to SlashFilm/THR for the tip, though a few of my friends have been telling me about this all day today, and as an iPhone user, I thought it was very worthy of being mentioned.
The app features various levels of trivia, increasing in difficulty each time, there's also downloadable packs. "We get over 100 million page views on our trivia pages each year," IMDb founder and CEO Col Needham told THR. "Customers spend more than 4 million hours a year on IMDb trivia." Smart move, and thankfully it's a great trivia game app. Though I'm regular player on QRANK and this app just doesn't seem to have the same sleek, speedy responsiveness as that trivia app, it integrates all of the endless IMDb data in such a cool way, that I'll probably be playing this nightly, as I love some daily gaming. You can even compete with your friends using the Game Center, upload scores to Facebook, and play offline in Airplane mode without issues.
