It's always Trivia Night when you have Brainer


Bertrand Russell once said "There is much pleasure to be gained from useless knowledge." I wonder if he was the star of trivia nights at his local pub. I bet he would have loved Brainer, a new and free iOS game app that puts a trivia quiz in your pocket.

The game delivers rapid-fire questions from any of seven categories: Movies, Sports, TV, History, Science, Music and Video Games. Each has sub-categories, like Game of Thrones under TV or Middle Ages under History.

Select a subject area and the game presents a question and four possible answers. You might be asked which philosopher did Aristotle study under? Or when can a football team attempts a two-point conversion?

You have 8 seconds to respond. If you're both smart and fast, you might win an Amazon gift card. Or at least impress your friends with your grasp of useless knowledge. Tell them Bert would be proud of you.
