A small icon on the home screen advertises other apps from the same developer. A parent gate blocks actual purchases, but it's easy to pass through.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Fiete Quiztime is an easy way to challenge the family with trivia questions. There are currently four subject areas, but the developers promise there will be more to come. The free download gives you 25 questions from a variety of topics; the in-app purchase unlocks all current topics and questions as well as any that are added in the future. Kids can play on their own, or with up to three other people. Some questions are right on the mark for the mid-elementary school age range, but some are challenging even for adults. Kids may get frustrated with how much specific knowledge some questions require. The sound effects are loud and assertive and there's no way to turn them off in-app, so you'll have to silence your device's volume if you don't want to hear them. Read the developer's privacy policy for details on how your information is collected and shared.

What's it about?

Test your knowledge of random factoids with FIETE QUIZTIME. Respond to multiple-choice trivia questions in categories such as animals, knights, horses, dinosaurs, and nature. Each set includes 10 questions. Kids can challenge themselves or play against up to three other people. Check the high-score board to see how well you're doing. The free trial includes a set number of questions, and then in-app purchases unlock individual topics or the full version. The parent gate is a two-digit addition problem.

Is it any good?

Quiz challenges are a great opportunity for family fun, but hard-to-answer questions may make family trivia night more frustrating than rewarding. Fiete Quiztime starts with a great premise: Get the family together for some friendly competition on kid-friendly trivia topics. Kids can challenge themselves to beat their own top score, or compete against friends and family. It's nice to be able to choose a topic, though questions do have a pesky tendency to repeat themselves over multiple sessions. The included topics, though somewhat quirky (knights?), are high-interest and the developers promise more to come in the future. Unfortunately, not all questions in the topic areas fit the theme. For instance, the knights category includes questions about "first nations," which has nothing to do with knights. Some phrasing is awkward and confusing, and, most frustrating of all, many questions require such specific knowledge that most kids -- and many adults -- will be totally stumped ("Where did the tyrannosaurus live?"). Also, some other weird quirks (random and incorrectly used quotation marks, the app sometimes quitting) make the premise more solid than the current version. Since it's free to try, it's worth checking back down the road to see if some bugs have been resolved.
