Social trivia that keeps you coming back

QuizUp (Android | iOS) is a trivia game that tests your knowledge of TV show quotes, world geography, cooking, and hundreds other topics (433 to be exact, according to the developers). You can challenge random strangers, or go head to head with your Facebook or Google+ friends to earn more points and level up.

With an overwhelming number of topics, you're bound to find at least one that you can conquer, whether it's grammar and spelling or baseball and Disney movies. While it's much easier to battle against strangers, it's far more rewarding to challenge your friends, obliterate them in the "Name the Pop Star" category, and brag about it endlessly. But maybe that's just me.

Get social
Since this is a social trivia game, the easiest way to get started is to sign in with either your Facebook or Google+ accounts. One downside to this is that you need to have the Facebook app installed on your phone to use your account to login, you can't just enter your credentials in the app. It's easier to sign with your Google account, since you can use whichever account is tied to your phone. Once you're signed in, the game will find your friends who also play QuizUp.
