To the question, "What will become the future of mobile trivia" PixelDom answers, A.) their new iOS app, Quizixl!
Let's be honest. Trivia night at your local pub is awesome. Whether it's through paper and pen or you have one of those giant coasters with the lights on them, spirits just taste better when your brain is engaged.
The problem is, nobody's really done anything to make trivia night better. Bars have to provide a lot of infrastructure to make it happen thru electronics and personnel. Sometimes all those light-up modules are taken. Paper and pencils are sometimes difficult to use when you're at a small table. From night to night there's no real way to find bars around you that have trivia. Finally, there's no way to track your score from week to week (preventing endless amounts of trash talking to friends).
Enter our hero, Quizixl by PixelDom.com. Quizixl turns your phone into a trivia playing monster. It gets your location data and tells you what bars in the area are having trivia and what the themes will be. Once you're in the bar, you can enter into any number of trvia challenges. You get to see a schedule of upcoming trivia along with time-windows for answering questions. There is a leader board for that location and overall so that people know who's on top in your city. If that wasn't enough, you get pixel's for playing which can be traded for awesome stuff (as if you needed additional incentive).
"Well then, Eight Bit Studios. What the hell did you do to make this happen? One icon in the top right?" Please...
We did the user experience, logo, art direction, interaction design execution, and all the native Objective-C iOS iPhone development. As a bonus we helped them work that sweet sweet API connection to PixelDom for user accounts and authentication. Yes, a beautifully crafted Chicago-based iOS app for the masses. ROCK ON!
