Linkee app released today

Published on: 9th December 2013

The app version of Linkee has been released today on iPhone, iPad and Android.Linkee-App-Screen-300

Like the physical game, the Linkee app for iOS and Android is designed to put general knowledge and lateral thinking to the test. Each level features four questions, and the objective is to work out the ‘Linkee’ between the answers. For example, if the answers were ‘Mercury’, ‘Pluto’, ‘Earth’, and ‘Venus’, the Linkee would be ‘planets’. In the app, questions gradually become more challenging as players progress.

The Linkee app has been developed by Ed Moyse, a 24-year-old tech entrepreneur who was watching BBC2 the night Linkee rejected Duncan Bannatyne’s offer of £50,000 on Dragons’ Den. He said: “I thought the Dragons were crazy not to invest in Linkee. I leapt at the opportunity to collaborate with Dean, Tris, and Ben.”

After launching as the world’s first crowd-sourced trivia game a year ago, with over a third of questions written by players, Linkee now aims to be the world’s first crowd-sourced trivia app. The initial release contains 240 levels and includes the option for people to submit their own questions, which will be added to the app in the next update.
