Suggested December 2023 4 Mobile Apps That Let You Cash In On Trivia

In October 2023 HQ Trivia was released on iOS with an intriguing premise: you download the app, sign on at certain times each day, and participate as a contestant in a live, worldwide trivia game show. If you win, you split a cash prize with all the other winners. Within just a few months the app has taken off on iOS, become available on Android, and spawned a surprising number of imitation apps. Clearly, free money is a great marketing strategy, but it also raises a few questions.

How do these apps make money? Where did they all come from?

To make a short story shorter, new paid trivia apps have been popping up semi-regularly since HQ launched. Mostly, they’re coming from existing companies that saw a good, potentially profitable idea with low startup costs and decided to jump on board.

Is it really free, and do you win actual money?

Yes and yes. All of the apps are free to play (so far), and most of them pay your winnings directly into your PayPal account.

Is this going to turn into an episode of Black Mirror?

It’s a little too close for comfort.

Here are some of the best Trivia apps to try.

1. HQ Trivia

How it works: There are multiple shows per day, often hosted by the awkwardly charismatic Scott Rogowski. Most shows have twelve questions, and you have to answer them all correctly within the time limit (ten seconds per question) in order to win any money.

Who made it: HQ, the app that started this whole trend, comes from Rus Yusupov and Colin Kroll, formerly the founders of Vine (the now-defunct nine-second video site).

Trivia: No one knows what “HQ” stands for. Theories include “Hype Quiz” and “Hard Questions,” but the founders will not confirm these.

2. Cash Show

How it works: With several shows every day and a more interesting rewards system, this app is probably the most serious HQ competitor. Rather than being paid only if you get all the questions correct, you are paid per question. The first few are non-prize questions, and after that, every question you get right pays you a cut of the prize depending on how many people you’re still in the game with.

Who made it: Cash Show is from the Chinese app developer Zentertain. Their other hit apps include “Word Connect” and “Photo Editor Pro.”

Trivia: Cash Show has a fairly high rate of errors in its questions, from categorizing London as a country to spelling “Baja” as “Baha.”

3. The Q

How it works: The Q sets itself apart from HQ by frequently rotating hosts, giving out hints on their social media and having multiple game modes. The basic premise is the same, though – you have a few seconds to answer a question, and you only split the prize if you have successfully answered all the questions.

Who made it: The CEO is Will Jamieson, who also runs a video streaming company called “Stream” and was a co-founder of Yik Yak, a now-defunct messaging app. Jamieson started The Q after realizing that his video streaming service could provide better quality than HQs.

Trivia: The Q gives out one answer for each game on their social media accounts.

4. QuizBiz

How it works: You have to download the chúng tôi app to play the game, though you do not have to be a participating member of the chúng tôi community. The interface can be a little cluttered and confusing, but once you get into the game, everything is pretty standard as far as trivia goes.

Who made it: chúng tôi is a streaming platform similar to Twitch and is in turn owned by Cheetah Mobile, a massive Chinese app developer behind apps like “Clean Master” and “Battery Doctor.”

Trivia: chúng tôi also owns the app “Cheez,” which allows users to upload seventeen-second videos (much like Vine) as well as play QuizBiz.

Other apps

The number of apps jumping on this trend is growing all the time, and this list doesn’t even count the genre’s runaway popularity in China. Here are a few more up-and-coming apps to try out. (And yes, they all pay.)

Genius (




There is no telling how long this trend will last, which apps will stick around for the long haul, or whether this is the beginning of a secret plot to take over the world. These apps are unlikely to make you rich, but if you have a few minutes to spare and a head for trivia, you don’t have much to lose by giving them a try!

4 New Windows 8 Apps You Should Get Your Hands On

1. Dropbox

Yep, Dropbox just got into the Windows 8 bandwagon and has released a new app that will let you use its system from the comfort of your Start screen. Now, you can manage your files, folders, and keep yourself organized with a very sleek and minimalist interface that perfectly complements the Metro look and feel. The taste couldn’t be any sweeter.

2. Movieholic

Until now, people mainly found out what movies were out by talking with friends. There are some apps that let you know what’s out there, but there’s been a lack of development in this area in the Windows 8 scene. Movieholic gives you an app that shows you the newest DVD/BluRay releases, as well as what’s currently in theaters, from the comfort of your screen. The information it displays is based on movie trailer site Rotten Tomatoes. Movieholic also allows you to search through its databases for films, in case you are curious to see whether that awesome movie you saw on theaters came out on DVD yet. You can consider this app a full-blown movie guide for addicts!

3. You Tube 8

While Google is reluctant to make a proper YouTube app for Windows 8, many alternatives exist. You Tube 8 is one of them, selecting the best content for you on your front page and allowing you to search through the YouTube database for videos to watch. As an alternative, you can use the more simplistic Youtube [sic] Player app. Both of these apps operate as simple YouTube front ends. You can get the same experience by opening the Internet Explorer 10 app and typing YouTube’s URL. However, it’s always fun to have a special custom interface right there on a button on your Start menu. It skips the step of having to open another app to get to YouTube.

4. YouVue

If you’re wondering what’s new in music, just open YouVue. This app includes the latest most popular songs through popularity charts, such as the Europe Top 100 and the US top 40. You can also check out music in different genres. This app is powered by YouTube, meaning that the service will be used to retrieve music content from each song you play. Once you switch to another app, this app will continue playing the music for you, making your experience all the more merry. This is an ideal app if you feel the need to listen to music to help you concentrate.

Idapt I4 Lets You Charge Up To 4 Mobile Electronics Simultaneously

IDAPT i4 Lets You Charge up to 4 Mobile Electronics Simultaneously

We’re not shy about our aversion to cables, cords, and anything else that can tie us down and look remarkably messy at the same time. Sure, there’s been products out there that have made us wonder if there’s any hope for our surge protectors, but then there’s gadgets like IDAPT’s i4 that make us realize why, all over again, we’d much prefer to have one cable, if we had to have any cables at all.

The i4 is designed to specifically charge up to four different mobile electronic devices, so right from the start it cuts down on the amount of cords we need to have lying around. As you can see from the image, you simply replace a tip and put it into the standing base. From there, you’ll be able to put your device right onto the charging port, and just let the i4 take care of the rest. The i4 itself has three charging ports on the dock, and then an extra USB charging port which should take care of any other devices that aren’t already supported by IDAPT with their tips.

So, which devices are supported? Apple products like the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch are, along with devices like Sony’s PSP, Nintendo’s DS, digital cameras, Bluetooth products and even BlackBerry handsets. “IDAPT is proud to provide its customers with an easy and affordable way to charge all their mobile electronic devices simultaneously,” said Jeremy Patay of IDAPT. “We are committed to evolving and developing compatibility with the newest and most popular mobile devices such as the iPad and iPhone 4.”

Other features like a “quick release” button, as well as LED indicator lights basically put the icing on the cake with the i4, and we’ll go ahead and say that we’re liking where this technology is going. Charging multiple devices in one, confined location is a great start for us getting rid of our cords. As for availability and pricing, you can go ahead and order the i4 from right here. You can choose from black, silver, or white, and it will only cost you $59.99.

Press Release:

Barcelona, Spain – June 30, 2010 – IDAPT, a Spanish international mobile technology leader, is proud to announce availability of the new IDAPT i4. The IDAPT i4 charges up to 4 different mobile electronics simultaneously which helps eliminate cord clutter. It is compatible with the iPad and iPhone 4 as well as 4,000 different mobile electronic devices including BlackBerry, Nintendo DS, PSP, digital cameras, GPS systems, and Bluetooth products.

The IDAPT i4 has 3 charging ports and an additional USB charging port to meet all charging needs. It features an interchangeable tip system making it completely customizable. The “quick release” button allows for safe and easy ejection of the interchangeable tips. Additional features include an LED display light indicating charge status and an on/off switch allowing users to economize energy use.

“IDAPT is proud to provide its customers with an easy and affordable way to charge all their mobile electronic devices simultaneously,” said Jeremy Patay of IDAPT. “We are committed to evolving and developing compatibility with the newest and most popular mobile devices such as the iPad and iPhone 4.”

4 Link Building Ideas That Won’t Get You Into Hot Water

I’m hearing lots of talk in the SEO community questioning the value of building links.

The current SEO trends seem to be leaning toward focusing on the technical aspects of SEO and leaving link building as an afterthought – or not a thought at all.

I think technical SEO is extremely important and a great technical SEO professional is worth every penny they earn.

But failure to create a strategy around building quality links is leaving money on the table.

If you are stuck on measuring links by volume, I think you’re doing it wrong.

I have many case studies that show that a few relevant, high-quality links will garner better results than several thousand non-relevant, lesser quality links.

Modern link building is not a numbers game.

Modern link building is a relationship game.

Relationships are hard.

Relationships take time.

Link building is hard.

Link building takes time.

But this article is not about creating an overall link building strategy.

In this article, I’m going to give you four link building tactics that work.

None of these ideas are groundbreaking.

But my hope is that some of you get some ideas from this list and put your own spin on it.

And I’m sure to some of you, at least a couple of these tactics will be new to you.

Feel free to use any and all of these ideas, and don’t hesitate to put your own spin on them.

After all, there are many ways to do link building wrong, but there isn’t one way to do it right.

1. Vendors, Customers & Friends

Link building is about relationships.

It stands to reason that one of the easiest ways to gain quality links is to leverage the relationships your company already has.

One of the first link building activities we do with any client is asking them to brainstorm a list of vendors, customers, and friends they think might be willing to provide a link.

Then, using our link building evaluation methodology, we evaluate each opportunity and prioritize.

Don’t get me wrong, we don’t go after every opportunity that is out there.

Relevance is important.

While a high-quality link is always desirable and can, in many cases, still provide significant value even with a small degree of relevancy, most people’s personal contacts can only provide links that aren’t exceptionally authoritative.

However, I’d argue that if you have a business relationship with a company, their site intrinsically has a modicum of relevance to yours.

The action item for this tactic is to create your list and don’t skimp.

Create as comprehensive a list as you can.

Then evaluate the links that could be garnered from the list and prioritizing them based on your evaluation criteria.

Next, take the top prospects on your list and meet with them or call them on the phone!

As a general tip, we find that if we can talk to someone in person or on the phone, we are far more likely to gain a link than if we merely send them an email.

For the rest of the list, communicate with them through the appropriate channels.

The appropriate channel is how the prospect is most comfortable communicating with you.

Don’t forget to ask for the link.

2. Trade Publications

When I worked in a Public Relations firm, trade publications were the bread and butter of easy publicity success.

Once, a colleague at the PR firm was praised for landing a story in a trade publication.

I’ll never forget when the big boss hit reply-all (instead of just reply) to tell the manager that she shouldn’t praise account executives for getting hits in trade publications.

He said we should own the trade publications.

He was right.

If you have a decent product and can differentiate yourself, you should have articles in trade magazines focused on your vertical.

The articles, which frequently appear in the online versions of the trade publications, should give you a highly relevant, quality link.

The action item for this tactic is to explore the different trade publication in your niche and start reading them.

Get to know the frequent writers – who are most likely either editors or freelancers.

Follow those writers on social media – Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, wherever they are.

Interact with the writers, providing them with feedback on their stories as well as information that doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with your company.

Basically, work to make their job easier.

Then, when you come up with something newsworthy about your company, pitch away.

Don’t forget to ask for a link in the story.

It amazes me how many times public relations folks don’t even ask for the link.

Journalists frequently don’t think in terms of links, so reminding them that you would like one usually doesn’t insult them – in fact, they are usually grateful.

3. Link-Worthy Content Campaigns

Why do sites link to other sites?

The answer is pretty simple.

Sites link to items that they think will be useful to their audience.

One of the most common tactics I see sites employ is to look at what is currently working for your competitors and copying the type of content, but trying to out-execute the competition in terms of the quality of the content.

This is a viable tactic – but one that frequently fails to provide optimal results.

The smaller your pool of likely linking sites, the less effective copycat content will be.

Creating linkable content is difficult.

But you won’t ever know if a piece of content is linkable until you try it.

The action items for this tactic is to brainstorm at least three quality pieces of content that you think influencers in your space will like too.

While it’s a good idea to look at what type of content is working for others, try not to crib too much from your competitors.

Work to come up with a content idea that hasn’t been explored very well.

When creating the content, think about exuding expertise, authority, and trust, or as Google likes to call it, E-A-T.

The content you create should be a resource for both influencers and end-users wherever possible.

But creating the content is not enough.

This is where the “campaign” part comes in.

You need to put together a plan to get your content noticed by the gatekeepers that can reward you with a link.

Don’t try to pitch to everyone in the world.

While it is tempting to play a volume numbers game, you will be more effective if you limit the pool of influencers you want to peddle your linkable wares, too.

Concentrating on the most important contacts allows you to spend the time needed to successfully obtain the highest quality links.

4. Be Controversial

Controversy gets links.

If you know how your audience feels about a particular issue, taking a stand on that issue only reinforces your brand’s relevance to your target customers.

Brands like Ben & Jerry’s, Patagonia, Heneiken, Starbucks and many others have successfully parlayed arguably controversial social stands into thousands of links from high-quality sites.

And the links have come from not only relevant sites that cater to the brands’ supporters, but from high-quality sites that cater to those opposed to the brands’ social positions.

In other words, they get links from their supporters and their detractors.

The saying “I don’t care what you say about me, just spell my name right” has never been truer than in the battle for high-quality links.

The action item for this tactic is to make sure you understand your audience and what is important to them.

If you don’t understand your audience, don’t employ this tactic.

Just ask the folks at the Komen Race for the Cure, who are still recovering from their controversial decision to stop funding Planned Parenthood almost a decade ago.

But if you know your audience, be vocal about the causes that are important to them.

Don’t be afraid to take a stand that your audience will appreciate.

One caveat – taking a stand can be somewhat exhausting.

Trolls are real.

There will be those who oppose your stance that will work to harm you online.

If you have extremely limited resources to combat your detractors, taking a controversial stand might not be feasible, no matter how well it will play with your target audience.

But if you can fight the trolls, the links you can garner from taking a stand are well worth the risks.

Once you have taken a stand, you aren’t done. You need to create a campaign to let folks know about your stand.

Just like in the last tactic, you need to make sure that the important folks know about the stand you’ve taken.

Again, don’t play a numbers game with your outreach.

Find the most important folks, and make sure they are aware of your stand.

This list will most likely be different from your other lists, as you’ll want to find the influencers that are particularly interested in the stand you take.

In Conclusion

There are literally thousands of ways to creatively obtain high-quality, relevant links.

Most look at link building as an impossible chore.

I think that’s because they are looking at link building in the wrong way.

It doesn’t take thousands of links to be successful – it just takes a few of the right links in most cases.

Letting your creative juices flow to create unique and effective link building campaigns is one of my favorite parts of SEO.

If you understand that success is achievable if you push boundaries, it might become one of your favorite parts of SEO as well.

Best Apps That Support Ios 16 Live Activities On Iphone

iOS 16 has brought many features to the iPhones, but lock screen customization was the standout feature. Speaking of the lock screen, Apple announced other features that changed how the lock screen works, and one of them is Live Activities. Apple didn’t make Live Activities available until iOS 16.1, making it available to all developers.

After the release of Live Activities, many developers hopped on the train and implemented it in their apps. Nonetheless, we curated a list of some of the best apps that support Live Activities on your iPhone running iOS 16.1 and later.

What are Live Activities on iPhone?

Live Activities on the iPhones let you see the currently running data on your iPhone lock screen and in Dynamic Island. In other words, it enables you to track any ongoing thing on your lock screen, including delivery, sports scores, trip, and more.

For instance, if you order food from your favorite app like Uber Eats, you can track your package on the lock screen without opening the app repeatedly to check the delivery’s status.

Best Apps to Use Live Activities in iOS 16

Flighty is a tracking app that allows you to track the status of any flight along with departure, arrival, boarding time, and more. It uses the Live Activities feature to track flights on the lock screen displaying information like flight number, boarding and destination, gate, and estimated arrival time.

It is also visible on Dynamic Island if you have an iPhone 14 Pro or 14 Pro Max. The app is free to download and use with limited abilities. You can get the Pro subscription for $5.99 a month or $49.99 annually, unlocking more app features.

Structured is a daily planner app that lets you plan your daily agenda. It also allows you to import events from calendars, reminders, and more. You can also add notes to the apps to clearly outline the event. The Structured app uses Live Activities to show the remaining time of an ongoing event in a countdown format.

You can also see it on Dynamic Island if you got an iPhone 14 Pro or 14 Pro Max. Furthermore, Structured is free to use with limited capabilities, but you can unlock all features by subscribing to Structured Pro at $1.49/month or $7.99/year. You can also choose a one-time fee of $29.99 if you prefer that.

CARROT Weather is an excellent weather app and a potential replacement for your current iOS Weather app. It packs many features but is mainly known for its customizability and user interface. The app uses the Live Activities feature to show information regarding the precipitation in the upcoming hours.

Like the previous apps, you can also see them on Dynamic Island if you have an iPhone 14 Pro or 14 Pro Max. CARROT Weather is a free-to-use app, but you get access to limited features. You can unlock more features with a one-time fee of $14.99 for Premium and $39.99 for Premium Ultra for all the features.

If you follow a lot of sports, you’ll love using the Sports Alerts app. It lets you track scores from games like the NBA, NFL, MLB, soccer, tennis, and more. In addition to the scores, you get a lot more data like schedules, players’ stats, and more. You can track live scores of your favorite game with Live Activities on the Sports Alerts app.

If you’re a keen photographer looking for the best sunsets or sunrises, Lumy is the perfect app for you. Lumy keeps track of the sunset/sunrise, golden hour, twilight, and other timings, allowing you to time your photographs.

Once you decide what to track, whether a twilight, golden hour, or something else, you can follow the remaining time with Live Activities in Lumy; you can also access the same countdown in Dynamic Island if you have an iPhone 14 Pro series.

Lumy is a paid app that lets you access all the features once you purchase it. It’s available for $6.99 on the App Store.

If you want to launch apps right from your lock screen, Lock Launcher lets you do it without the need to go to the home screen. You can customize and add apps that you’d access daily. Lock Launcher uses the Live Activities feature and the Shortcuts app to make this possible.

If you have an iPhone 14 Pro series with Dynamic Island, you can add network speed to it, which is quite handy. The app is available for free, with slightly limited features. However, you can pay a one-time of $0.99 to unlock all the features.

The Slopes app should be your perfect companion if you’re into skiing. It shows detailed statistics about your skiing or snowboarding sessions and offers trail maps for over 200 supported resorts globally. It uses Live Activities on iOS 16 to display two stats at a time, and you can choose from options like vertical distance, speed, number of runs, and more.

The app also shows this information on iPhone 14 Pro series’ Dynamic Island. Slopes is a free-to-use app with limited features, but you can get the Premium Unlimited plan for $29.99 to unlock all the features.

If hiking interests you more than skiing, you should use the Landscape app. It shows detailed stats during the hike and lets you plan the route with 3D and Augmented Reality technologies. This app uses Live Activities to show real-time statistics about your climb, along with an elevation graph.

You also see other stats like total distance, elevation, and progress. Moreover, it also works with Dynamic Island on the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max. The Landscape app is free to download and use with fewer features. You can unlock all features for a $4.99/month or a $24.99/year subscription plan.

9. Liftin’

Liftin’ is a simple workout app that lets you track your workouts and see your progress with beautiful graphs and charts. It enables you to set up rules and adjust your weights based on results. This app uses Live Activities to show the current workout and a countdown timer to track time. It also shows the total number of exercises left to complete.

Dynamic Island on iPhone 14 Pro series supports these Live Activities. The app is free to download and use, but you’ll be able to track up to five workouts per month. If you want more workout tracking and features, you can unlock them by getting a subscription for $2.99/month or $24.99/year. There’s also a lifetime option that will unlock with a one-time fee of $99.99.

All you need to do is set a goal and follow it with an elegant user interface. It shows the current workout with elapsed time and number of steps using the Live Activities feature.

You can also see it on Dynamic Island if you have an iPhone 14 Pro or 14 Pro Max. The Steps app is free to use, with some features hidden behind a paywall. You can go for the Pro Upgrade for $1.99 only.

Final Thoughts

So these were some of the best iPhone apps that use the Live Activities feature with the iOS 16.1 update. The Live Activities feature is helpful, letting you access required information on your lock screen with a glance.

Your Personal Wikipedia: 9 Free Apps And Services That Help You Remember

Computers and smartphones can store and sift through reams of data. With a bit of help, you can harness that power to manage the information you need, whether it’s something hidden away in an obscure email message, a search engine result, or a tidbit that you haven’t written down at all. The nine services and applications below can help you become more productive and make better use of the technology you already own. Each offers a free version, too. Thanks to these knowledge managers, your next project may be easier to finish than you might think.

Catch-All Services

One popular type of knowledge-management service is the “catch-all” service, which acts as a big bin into which you throw random bits of knowledge for retrieval when you need the information.

Evernote is probably the best-known service in this category. It has a desktop application, a Web app, and mobile apps that allow you to feed new information and search for existing data. Evernote also offers the Trunk, a hodgepodge of third-party applications, services, and hardware that all play well with the service.

While Evernote has a limited free version, Springpad is entirely free, and displays occasional promotional messages based on the information you save into the service.

Browser-Based Wiki Systems

Just as Google is synonymous with “search,” Wikipedia is synonymous with “knowledge.” This global online encyclopedia proves that the wiki format works well for managing knowledge. You can make a wiki of your own, too. Of course, your wiki doesn’t have to be all-encompassing; it can focus on one particular topic or project, or serve as an interactive journal.

Not all wikis must be collaborative–or even public, for that matter. TiddlyWiki is a tiny personal wiki that resides in a single HTML document, with a small, optional Java applet on the side. TiddlyWiki costs nothing, can live in a Dropbox folder or on a USB stick, and works with pretty much any modern browser. It’s customizable, as well, and it even has optional plug-ins. Your wiki is divided into individual topics called “tiddlers,” which are ideal for storing tidbits of knowledge.

Desktop-Based Wiki Applications

One well-known personal wiki is Tomboy, from the open-source GNOME project. Tomboy does everything it can to stay out of your way and just let you write: It automatically saves notes, and it makes links to existing topics magically appear. If only its installation routine were as magical–on Windows, Tomboy requires you to install the GTK# runtime before you can use it. On the plus side, it works on Linux (the OS it was meant for), as well as on Mac OS X. And Tomboy is unique in that each note resides in its own window.

Like Zim, WikidPad uses a single-document interface with a topic tree, but it has a native Windows look and feel, and it can serve as a portable app.

Tomboy, Zim, and WikidPad are all free and open-source.

If you are looking for a commercial desktop wiki, ConnectedText is a good choice. This powerful personal wiki starts at $40, but is a mature product with support for revisions, outlines, tables, and more.

Roll Your Own Wiki

Employed in large collaborative wikis such as the official Python wiki and the Debian wiki, MoinMoin is surprisingly easy to install as a single-user desktop wiki. If you already have Python, basically you just have to extract it and run a single Python script to start saving pages. Configuring MoinMoin is a different matter, though.

Deciding which knowledge management system to use is all about personal preference. You may find one you love at first sight, or you might encounter a system that gradually grows on you until you wonder how you ever lived without it. Regardless, having a solid personal database can save you tons of time and frustration.
