July’s best news quiz apps: Test your knowledge

Now that we are in a new month we thought that we would take a look at July’s best news quiz apps. During that month there were only three decent apps that you could test your knowledge with, but more are on the way. However, there is one on Facebook that is being updated as we speak, also you have the chance to create your very own quiz app, if you are up to the challenge of course?

Firstly let’s talk a little about the ABEL News Quiz of the Week App, which is available on iTunes for FREE. Not only can you test your knowledge on the iPhone but also the iPad and iPod Touch as well. Everyday we are subjected to a barrage of news, but how much do we really take in? Well this app will be able to answer that for you, and is updated on a regularly basis to make certain that you have the latest news to test yourself against.

Every week you are giving ten questions, so you would have had 40 questions in July, but if you missed out on those, then just prepare yourself for August, as the week has just begun. You have a choice to play against the app or with friends in teams of up to eight. Visit www.qotw.co.uk for more details.

ABEL has two other versions of this app, so if you do not know that much about general news, then you have the choice of the Sports Quiz of the Week app or Pop Quiz of the Week app. Both will test to see how much you know about these two subjects — great if you have a group of friends round.

If those are not to your liking, then why not use the power of social media, as the New York Times New Quiz is available for you to access via Facebook — well not just yet. We say this because the quiz is currently being upgraded and will be re-launched very soon. The new version is promised to offer a number of improvements, so why not take this opportunity to do a bit of studying ready for when the quiz app goes live back on Facebook.

If you feel that you have a great knowledge of current affairs, then why not put it to good use by creating your very own news quiz app. It is simple to do thanks to a little help with SnapApp. There are just six easy steps, all of which can be explained here. We would love to know if you have developed your own app this way, and if so how much success has you had?
