Trivia Bowl Buzzer is perfect for any fast-paced, Jeopardy!-style trivia competition (many such competitions are called Scholars' Bowl, Quiz Bowl, or Academic Bowl). Players use separate devices to buzz into the Game Host's device. Upon buzzing, the Player's device sounds and vibrates, and the Game Host's device indicates which Player has buzzed in, while preventing all other Players from buzzing in. The Host also has the ability to keep score for teams and individuals using custom-defined values for "Correct," "Incorrect," "Bonus," and "Penalty."
This "Full" version allows the user to act as a Host or Team Captain (this functionality can be purchased in-app from the non-Full version for the same total price).
This app uses Bluetooth 4.0 (BLE) capabilities to connect multiple iOS devices (which act as buzzers) to a central hub, eliminating the need for wired buzzer systems.
THEREFORE, Trivia Bowl Buzzer is compatible only with the following devices:
- iPhone 4S and more recent
- iPod Touch 5 and more recent
- iPad 3 and more recent
- iPad Mini (all models)
- iPad Pro (all models)
Note that devices running Version 1.0 of Trivia Bowl Buzzer (not Full) will not be compatible with devices running Trivia Bowl Buzzer (Full) or Version 2.0 (not Full) as a result of the added functionality in Version 2.0. It is therefore necessary that all devices update to the newest version of Trivia Bowl Buzzer.
Note also that, due to the nature of Bluetooth connections, various complications could potentially occur during gameplay. As a result, the timing of buzzing might not always be accurate (for example, distance might cause one device which actually buzzed in first not to register until after another device has buzzed in). Thus, this app should not be used for any high-stakes competition or in place of any high-accuracy buzzer system. Thank you for your understanding.
