Descriptions


If you rule the local pub on trivia night, or just dream of the day you will, Sporcle is the perfect app for you. This popular quiz game for Android has got all the bells and whistles. More importantly, it's got great quizzes!

- A Quiz for Every Occasion
"Oh sure," you're thinking. "Another app with 10 or 15 lame quizzes." Au contraire! Sporcle for Android has thousands of inventive and challenging trivia games. Running the gamut from Entertainment to Religion, from Sports to Literature, there's a quiz here for anyone and everyone. You can browse through 15 different categories or simply select a random quiz and start playing.

Here's just a small sampling of the types of trivia tests you'll find on Sporcle: "50 Largest U.S. Cities." "Name that Sitcom." "Ancient Wonders." "Baby Names from Shakespeare." (?) "Guess Your NBA Team." "SNL Cast Blitz." "Famous Biologists." (??) And on and on.

These aren't your grandpa's multiple-choice quizzes, either--each one has a written answer that you must provide. As soon as you type the right answer, BING, it pops into the right spot. When you type in a wrong answer however, the app just sits and stares at you, quietly judging you. Play for time or play for fun, the decision is yours.

- How Do You Measure Up?
Sporcle scores your performance on every quiz and stores the information right in the app, so you can track which ones you've taken and how you did. You can also get more in-depth statistics on each game, seeing how your performance stacks up against others who have taken that quiz. And don't worry; each quiz reveals the correct answers once you've completed it, so you don't have to wonder. You can also take the same quiz again if you like.

- It Gets Better
One of the best things about Sporcle is the "connectivity" it provides. You can see comments from other players about each quiz and compare your score against theirs right on your phone--but that's just the beginning. You can then go online, create an account on Sporcle.com, and have even more fun. On the site you can comment on quizzes you've taken, rate them, view all kinds of statistics, invite and connect with your friends, post your results to Facebook and Twitter, and more. You can even create your own quiz.

Even if you just stick to the app, there's more than enough to keep you busy and entertained for a long while. It features thousands of quizzes pre-loaded in every category--and you don't have to have network access to play them. Just download the Android app and start exercising your brain. With Sporcle, there's always a new challenge waiting for you.

    Very disappointed with this app. I love the sporcle website and was very excited to see this app in the store. I was put off paying for a while but decided to go for it. This app is NOTHING like the website. The games are vastly different, the scoring percentage humour is totally missing and generally it's nothing like the sporcle I know. I get that it must be hard to develop what has been done on the website into an app, but at the moment, it's nowhere near. Full Review

    I had the app for years on my iPhone and it worked great. Now I got an android so I bought the app again and logged in and none of my history/badges/points/coins are there. Kinda useless having a login with no data. Full Review

    The app itself is fantastic but what influenced me to leave a review was Sporcle's customer service. They are incredibly helpful despite how persistent you might be with your issue. Great job guys. Full Review

    I love Sporcle but why are the badges not on the app? It's a bit pointless when people want to earn all the badges but they are not available on the app version. I'll just have to stick to website instead. Full Review

    Does not work on Google Pixel. I paid for an app that does not even show the questions. Not worth it. Full Review

    Love the game but keeps crashing Been a long time fan of the game. Lately the app keeps crashing while I'm mid puzzle. Twice this week it has crashed while doing a puzzle with over 200 answers and the entire puzzle was wiped clean because of this. Lost A LOT of data because of this. Also the two times during that puzzle, I had used the cheats, so I lost over 100 game coins because of this problem. Hope this gets fixed soon. Full Review

    Since the last update I've only run into one tiny issue, that was fixed by support in less than 6 hours. If an old review turned you off of this game please be aware that it has been updated and functions extremely well now! Full Review

    Won't let me log in It didn't keep me logged in after the first time and now when I try to reset my password it says my email is wrong. But when I go to make a new account, it says my email is already in use. Nonsense. Fix it please. Full Review

    I was doubtful about downloading this in the light of so many negative reviews. However many of the problems seem to have been ironed out and it is well worth the price (less than a cup of coffee). The only thing I would say is that I haven't discovered (in the first place) how long you have to play a game, and then how the time is counting down. If someone could enlighten me that would be helpful. Full Review

    The app itself is fine but I have made a quiz called sports chain quiz and it is not on there I made it a month ago. Also, on the computer many more quizzes show up. You think for a 2 dollar game it could be a little better. Full Review

    Search function, UI interface, and other functional issues really make the app suffer. I've been using sporcle website for years, but the app is poorly executed, and lacks any kind of usability. For instance, the app doesn't save your location within the category causing massive amounts of excess scrolling. Full Review

    So I originally paid $3 or something around that for the app and even though its free now, i dont feel ripped off at all. Its a fun user updated trivia game. The only problem i have is finding new trivia games to play. The PC website has more different game types that im sure will be implimented eventually. Again, just finding new trivia is the only problem i have. Full Review

    App stuck on 'checking in' Really not worth the purchase until they fix major bugs in this. Will be getting a refund. Full Review

    I love the website....but... The selection on the app seems minimal. Also, my scores and play history seem unstable. Overall worth $1.99. Hope it evolves to address these concerns! Full Review

    Very disappointed paying for the app when playing on the mobile website is much more convenient. The randon option is a joke, giving me the same few quizes and having to go back every time I try to pick "random". Full Review

    A convenient way to enjoy Sporcle on the go but is a little clunky and not very user-friendly. The app would be much better if it displayed related quizzes and if it remembered your position while scrolling down a list of quizzes. Full Review

    Poor and inexcusably non visual To jump from the interactive website to this obviously hurried and unthoughtful effort is definitely a waste of download time. In no way did the same team who lovingly created the website do this excel app. And charge fot it? Ridiculous. Full Review

    Where are the badges?! WTF? Where are the badges? How can this paid app not include one of the most basic features of the site? Pathetic. Full Review

    Just paid for this and it keeps crashing periodically. My type of app but unreliable because it crashes before you finish your game. Also the app doesn't remember your location within the category meaning you've to scroll back down through the list. Edit: I'm now 2 weeks in and any large quizzes are a nightmare as it seems the app can't handle the volume of information in them and eventually the app crashes. Very poor for a pained app. Full Review

    No maps for country quizzes defeats the purpose of this app, I'll just use a web browser and struggle with clumsy controls vs not having 90% of the clues for guessing countries Full Review

    Could be so great I love Sporcle. When I found there was an app, I immediately bought it. Boy was that a waste! Like everyone else the quiz selection is pretty lame. The integration and friendly rivalry the website encourages is sorely lacking here as well. I also wish they would add the badges to the app. I love trying to collect them all!! Full Review

    Crashes all the time It takes me three goes to start the app usually and it's slow and often crashes. For a paid app it's an absolute disgrace. Full Review

    Not worth your money Bad design, dated interface and most importantly does not have even a fraction of the available quizes online. Basically you get a handful per category. You could finish geography category in an hour for example. Full Review
