Just when you think that there is nothing left that an app can improve, something completely new and utterly brilliant comes along. Check out the app that promises to transform the way you play your favourite pub quiz.
Speedquizzing is the future
The Speedquizzing app is the brainchild of ex Shed Seven drummer Alan Leach, along with his brother John, who provides the tech development side.
They came up with the idea after Alan decided there must be a way to link up modern tech with the pub quizzes he had been running for years. And they soon found there was.
What makes it great?
It’s great for the teams and the quiz master, making it easy and fast to run. The benefits of speed quizzing come in many forms, from the huge database of questions the developers have sourced to the instant results from the central computer.
Teams can also use their mobile device as a buzzer for quick fire rounds and the way the questions are asked, answered and marked means there’s no longer any room for that bane of the pub quiz - cheating.
Players can download an app from iOS or Google Play and any mobile device compatible with these operating systems will work - it can be a tablet or a smartphone and just one is needed per team.
How does it work?
The quiz master simply downloads the Speedquizzing software onto a laptop and the teams download the free app to their smartphone or tablet.
Questions are selected randomly from the massive database, meaning there is no chance of pulling the exact same quiz twice. Subjects covered are many and varied and all come together to make an eclectic yet balanced quiz for customers to enjoy.
As marks are instantaneous Speedquizzing cuts out the boring faff that comes along with many pub quizzes, while teams wait for their papers to be marked and argue the toss over answers. With Speedquizzing it’s crisp, efficient and finally drags the pub quiz into the 21st century.
The tech used is slick and sophisticated and the team have made it a seamless experience for the quiz master and quizzers alike - all in all a pretty perfect example of how an app can take something that’s already great and make it even better.
Great second income
The beauty of Speedquizzing is it’s great to play but it’s also great to run your own quiz night using the software. It could work out as either a good second income or provide some part time hours for you, while giving you the opportunity to work for yourself.
Speedquizzing launched in 2012 and the app has been really successful with Speedquizzing events going on throughout the UK, in some parts of the US and even reaching Australia.
The app and tech is easy to use from both sides and provides a fuss free way to play - what are you waiting for? Give it a go!
