Company / App Name: Data Quiz App
What does it do?
Our Data Quiz App brings a “pub quiz” style format to questions about your country or next holiday destination all generated from open data that’s freely available. For example: What % of Italians say they are happy with their life?
Why do we need it?
We built the app for the UK Data Service and it’s free to download on Android and iOS. The aim is to generate awareness of statistical information and source material in an age of fake news and misinformation.
Who is it for?
Anyone interested in the statistics about the world around them.
What makes it stand out from the crowd?
As a journalist from the Economist said “Now I know what my household will be playing over the holiday season”. The app is simple to use, highly visual and challenges your preconceptions about what you know about countries like the UK.
Further quizzes. We’ve launched on on Israel and the USA is next. We’ve also been asked to create quizzes on Brexit and Football. Nothing too contentious there then!
