HQ Trivia is hotter than ever. The live trivia game show has been available for both iOS and Android users since late last month.

The cap is now higher. Sunday evenings’ trivia battle attracted an HQ record 1.6 million users to a special game that offered a higher than usual …

HQ trivia is hard to win, but changing the app’s color is quite easy.

A tipster told us about the trick Sunday night, shortly after the 9 p.m. ET game, and it seemed to have worked earlier this week as well, per a tweet

Why would you want to change the color of the app? We really don’t know. Maybe to show off to your friends a.k.a. HQ competitors. Or, just in the spirit of randomness.

Here’s how to unlock the rainbow magic: 

Step 1. Open the HQ trivia app. Of course, download the app if you don’t have it yet. Feel free to use my referral code “kerrymflynn,” though that won’t influence if this works.  Read more…

The rapid rise and even faster fall of an HQ trivia champion

TwitterFacebook

HQ trivia, the live game-show app that launched in July, is ridiculously hard to win, but contestant Allan Gibbons repeatedly finds a way.

Better known by his username “AllanG,” Gibbons is an HQ trivia celebrity, born from his knack for dominating the game show’s daily competitions. The 28-year-old radio DJ from Owen Sound, Canada has earned more than $870 from the nine games he’s won and has sat at the top of the all-time leaderboard for about two months.

The spaceship Apple Park campus will be Apple's new official HQ starting this April

Apple is a company that’s known for a lot of things. It pioneered the personal computer, revolutionized the modern-day smartphone, and is the reason why many of us own some form of tablet.

Although we won’t get our hands on the upcoming iPhone 8 for a few more months, something that will be launching this April is Apple’s brand-new …
