SPORCLE is a mobile version of the popular online trivia site. The app accesses a selection of the text-based quizzes available on the site and offers hundreds of quizzes to choose from in categories such as entertainment, language, science, sports, religion, literature, and music. Each quiz has its own timer and set of questions. Players can choose to create an account to track their games played and scores.

With so many quizzes available, Sporcle can be a diversion for a few minutes or an hour. However, because of the user-created quizzes and user comments, there are some language issues, and parents should provide guidance for younger players. Typing out longer answers on a small device (particularly the iPhone keyboard) can be difficult. The app, however, is well-designed and great for trivia and puzzle lovers.

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.
