Horrible connection issues

This app glitches everyday and no other app has any problems so it's not my connection

A waste of my time!

My husband and I downloaded the app because of watching the voice. The prize was 50,000 dollars and the questions were partially based on the show. The questions started and we answered the first three correctly and in the allowed time limit. It disqualified us and said we had no extra saves or something. Basically it wanted us to sign up friends which we didn't know nor did we want to. We just wanted to play. We watched for a few minutes and would have had the next two answers right. We were both so irritated we just shut it off. If the app is going to cheat because we didn't get our friends to sign up that's ridiculous and false advertisement. We may not have answered every question right but who knows!!! We would have at least got a share of the money!!

Is It Any Good?

There's excitement in the air as players sign on to compete in this daily trivia game show, but be prepared to hand over personal information. The players who answer all of the questions correctly have the chance to win decent amounts of prize money (twice daily on the weekdays, once daily on weekends) on HQ Live Trivia Game Show. For example, during one recent show, eight players answered all of the questions correctly to split the $1,000 pot and won $125 each. Not bad for a free, 12-minute game. That said, there's a frantic, almost addictive quality to this game that seems more casino than game show, and there's some crude humor by the live host. In addition, you have to provide your PayPal account information to collect any prize money, making HQ Live Trivia Game Show a fun, frenetic app for mature teens and adults who are willing to sacrifice some personal information.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
