A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this app.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Stupidness 2 PRO is a puzzle game for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and the iPad. The app poses questions that seem very simple, but often require the user to think outside of the box. This often involves using the iPhone's internal gyroscope and multitouch functionality. However, some solutions are nonsensical and seem deliberately meant to frustrate rather than test your IQ. A free trial version of the app is also available. There is an option to connect to Facebook to post your "IQ."
Is it any good?
It would be easy to accuse STUPIDNESS 2 PRO of living up to its name, but that would be lazy and misleading. The app does include some good brain-teasers -- and it smartly includes hints for people who can't figure out a solution (at the cost of IQ points). However, many of the puzzle solutions are random and seem meant only to showcase the iDevice's abilities (like the gyroscope or multitouch). Additionally, it's a very short app. Some users can breeze through it in 10-15 minutes, which makes the price tag -- even at 99 cents -- questionable. Unless you're hopelessly addicted to these sorts of puzzles, the free version should suffice just fine.
