Britpop Drummer Saves Pub Quiz

YORK, England, April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Alan Leach from Britpop band Shed Seven, along with his tech-head brother John Leach, has designed  a much-needed update to the old  pen and paper style   pub quiz. Utilising mobile technology, this pioneering application takes full advantage of the one item people take everywhere, the mobile phone.

Lightyears away from a pen and paper trivia night!

The SpeedQuizzing night is all about fast pace and swift reaction times, creating an electrically charged, buzzing atmosphere with TV quiz show intensity.

At the beginning of a quiz, one member of each team downloads the  free SpeedQuizzing app onto their smartphone leaving it on the table to be accessed by all team members. The smartphone is connected over WiFi to the quiz host's computer, running the SpeedQuizzing software. 

The SpeedQuizzing app eradicates the ability to cheat, rejuvenating the original format and taking quiz fun to a whole new social level.

With up to 32  iPhonesiPodsiPads or  Android devices connected to the system at one time, the fun begins. Players are given a time limit in which to input their answer into their touch screen device, which instantly beams their  time-critical answers to the host for instant success or humiliation.

Speed bonus!

Another level in the Smartphone Pub Quiz is the  speed bonus. The first team to answer a question will have their chosen sound clip played over the PA, which can lead to added hilarity (QI has nothing on this!)

Pictures beamed to screens

The latest innovation is onscreen  picture questions. In SpeedQuizzing, random pictures are beamed by the quiz host to all of the connected handsets appearing at exactly the same time for players to respond to real-time. The old style printed picture sheet just doesn't cut the mustard anymore!
