In Pursuit of Trivi.al
By Arkansas Business Staff, 7/2/2012 12:00:00 AM
MobileFWD, a new startup from Fayetteville entrepreneurs Matt Hudson and Joey Nelson, launched its free Trivi.al mobile app last week.
In the first five days it was available, the game was downloaded more than 5,000 times from iTunes.
Trivi.al is an online trivia game played between two people paired up through Facebook or randomly through the app's game community.
The game's main goal is for users to increase their "IQ" to genius status, all the while tracking their progress and comparing their status to friends and family with an in-game profile.
Performance updates have already been made with new features coming soon. So, sign up at iTunes (search Trivi.al), and prove to that meddlesome brother once and for all that you're smarter than he is.MobileFWD, by the way, is an Innovate Arkansas client firm.
