Summary : A Trivia App that Sharpens Your Mental Faculties!

QuikLee is a trivia-based game that is intended to sharpen users’ mental faculties. To begin, users have to launch the app and sign in using either their email or Facebook profile. Next, users must choose if they wish to play the “Single Player” mode or if they want to play in the “Challenge a Friend” mode. When the game loads, users will be instructed to complete an action (e.g., answer a question, erase an image, drag a tile, etc.) based on the banner that appears on the top of the screen while they attempt to beat the timer on the bottom right of the screen. As they complete the different tasks, QuikLee provides feedback regarding if the task was or was not completed correctly. After users complete all the tasks, they are provided a summary of their performance that includes how long it took them to complete all the tasks as well as their overall points earned.

From the main menu, users can tap their profile picture to view their current belt status, which is their ranking. They can also see how many games they played all time, how many pointed they have earned, and how many points are needed until they earn their next belt. They can also tap the “My Challenges” option from the bottom right of the main menu to see how many challenges they received, sent, and completed. Users can also tap the “Options” button on the main menu that will allow them to get further support, offer feedback about this app, and adjust sound/vibration settings.
