QuizUp for Android attracted 1 million new signups within its first week, averaging 100,000 new users a day
After first launching on iOS in November, Plain Vanilla game’s popular trivia game QuizUp finally landed on Android earlier this month. At the time, there were whispers about how QuizUp could be the next super-hit (fad) app taking the crown from Flappy Bird.
So how well has QuizUp done since its Android debut? According to Plain Vanilla Games, the app saw a million new signups during its first week on Android and has been constantly grabbing 100,000 new daily signups ever since. Combining its iOS and Android users, the trivia app has 12.6 million users and has seen over 40 million trivia matches. Here’s a fun fact: Plain White Games says that all its users combined have reportedly spent a total equivalent of 176 years playing the game since its original debut.
There’s no denying that QuizUp has been a run away success so far, and in our official review we found that the game was largely enjoyable, though not without its faults including occasional factual errors in questions, spelling mistakes and other minor issues.
The big question is whether QuizUp can hold onto this success in the long-term, or if it’s user base will eventually lose interest and move on — as we have begun to see with Flappy Bird and the many clones that followed it.
Have you tried QuizUp yet, if so what do you think of the trivia platform based on your experience with it?
