Hi all,

New-ish app for you all where you can win some money.
HQ is a daily, live hosted quiz that runs via the app at 3pm (weekdays) and 9pm GMT (possibly other times too in the US).

It's 12 questions, with 3 possible answers and 10 seconds to answer each.
If you get a question wrong you're eliminated from the comp.

Today's prize fund was $750 which was split by the 10 eventual winners (out of over 10k entrants).
Special events have seen prize funds of $10,000 and the highest individual win being $6k; but the usual payout is, understandably, quite a bit lower.

It's downloadable via both Google Play (Beta) and the App Store.
You can add the referral 'DumbDumbLuck' for an extra life, which keeps you in the game if you get a question wrong.

Says the app is in development on android and could be unstable? Is it safe enough to use still?

My bandwidth dropped on the golf question tonight, so I missed the 10 second cut off, but playing on I would have got the other questions right (mostly by guessing) :(

The 3pm one does seem to attract fewer players, so offers higher prize values if you win.... $375usd is not a bad return for 10mins work!

Supposedly the prizes are coming from some venture capitalists,'s deep pockets, so it'll be interesting to see how they end up monetising it?

Is this the future for all those postcode lottery type websites do you think?

It says that they will notify you at the start time, but I never get the notification :( Do I have to have the app open at the time to be notified?

I feel like there should be an HQ Trivia group to boost our chances of winning.

Currently being driven mad by Wordpress!!
Amazon just contacted me regarding my seller account... I wasn't aware I still had one as I last used it in 2004!
Can I believe I've actually just bought some proper lights for LEGO animations - a bit of a short sale on Amazon! :D
So Respondent have contacted me to take part in a face to face interview next week.
Excited & should take me over £100 goal for January....
I really should get back into Matched Betting - I'm pretty sure most of what I make goes to Odds Monkey as I don't bother cancelling the subscription - oops!
