Stay on Your Trivia Toes with What About Today

Whether its at a party, a picnic, or a get together, trivia is always quite fun. Be it on the bottom of a bottle cap, on the wrapping of sweets or on actual trivia cards, these little nuggets of information more often than not, trigger a satisfying little ‘oh…cool!’ moment every time you read one. Well, now you can enjoy this moment everyday conveniently with the app What About Today? on your Android device.

What About Today? is a fun little app developed by XDA Forum Member darkstay, and it serves up a fresh dose of trivialities for your and your company’s entertainment. Every day, you can read up on a famous quote, find out a cool little fact, kick start your mind with a fun riddle, discover a quick historical fact, get a brief history of the day, and more. The user interface is very simple, consisting of vertically scrolling list of facts and trivia under the present date, and horizontally sliding screens for content of preceding and succeeding days for those who would like to explore a bit more. All the content are also stored on your phone, so you can access the app anytime and anywhere.

I guess the saying ‘You learn something new everyday’ may actually be true, especially with an app like this. You may never know when you might need to know that snails can sleep for up to 3 years or that 70% of the human brain consists of water. The application is available for anyone using Android versions 2.2 or newer, and can be downloaded for free from the Play store. So make sure to check out the original thread for more information if you’re interested.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
