iPhone Trivia Game HQ Continues to Surge in Popularity

HQ Trivia launched just a few short months ago, but it's already gained a daily audience of at least 600,000 viewers. apprb as a professional agency for app rank service, also catch latest public opinions upon that. When you log on to play HQ over the next couple of days, you probably want to swipe away the comments. Otherwise, you'll probably be spoiled on things like who Rey's parents are, what Luke was doing on that weird little island, and what the fuck is a porg.

The app airs a live trivia contest twice a day with 12 questions in each round and awards anywhere from $1,000 to $10,000 to be distributed equally among however many people get all 12 questions right. More than 300,000 people tune in to each "show" to test their knowledge and maybe win some cash.

The app was founded by the creators of Vine and gained popularity when host Scott Rogowsky was profiled by The Daily Beast. Rus Yusupov, one of the app's founders, seemingly didn't understand how journalism works and threatened to fire Rogowsky over the profile. Instead, Rogowsky has only grown become more popular with fans around the world.

HQ has gained so much steam for so little apparent reason. Fans can chat during the live broadcast and occasionally win big, but it has the potential to take off as a new form of TV entertainment or replace some of the recorded game shows people have grown to love over the years.

With push notifications and a limited time to answer questions (or cheat), people have become addicted to the app. And despite its near-constant loading and lag problems, users haven't gotten tired of the app's problems. Fans likely are attracted to the possibility of winning money, which should come as no surprise, but the simple graphics and interactivity with the host and other contestants also make it feel more accessible and relatable.

While it remains to be seen if HQ will be able to maintain its popularity over the long term, it might be the fastest growing thing that isn't named Bitcoin right now. If you haven't yet joined in the fun, download the app from the App Store now and opt into notifications to be alerted when a new game starts.
