Mobile trivia app HQ Trivia is shutting down, according to a report from CNN.
The live trivia app, developed by Vine developers Colin Kroll and Rus Yuzupov, was relatively popular when it introduced in 2017, appealing players real money for utilizing the app, and responding to concerns at a particular time two times a day. Users would divide $250 amongst themselves, with incomes then provided to their PayPal. The app reached a record high in users at 2.38 million on March 28,2018
The game dealt with a problem with bots and, supposedly, appeal ultimately died. HQ continued to look and upgrade the app for intriguing methods to keep trivia heads thinking about playing, like HQ After Dark, an adult-oriented version of thegame The app was moneyed by collaborations with big business like Warner Bros. and Nike, promoting films for the former and distributing HQ- themed shoes for the latter. The business made layoffs in July 2019, after striking financial difficulties.
Even if HQ Trivia is gone, we’ll keep in mind the weeks when good friends would gather together at 3 p.m. to attempt to play.
