Live game show app follows live event trend

Live events are extremely popular at the moment. Now digital apps are following this trend. HQ isn't like you're typical trivia game where you can play whenever you want. With HQ, gameplay is live and takes place twice a day. "It's a way to give people a chance to have fun, maybe win, maybe learn something new," Vine cofounder Rus Yusupov told TechCrunch. HQ's trivia is only available at 3PM and 9PM Eastern, which is when HQ's host, Scott Rogowsky, asks a handful of multiple choice questions live. If you answer a question correctly within 10 seconds, you can advance to the next one and everyone who successfully answers them all splits a cash prize that's doled out via PayPal. The jackpot isn't always the same and HQ's creators are toying with different ways to fund it. Yusupov told TechCrunch, "We've been playing around with options. This Sunday we did a sponsored game that let us give away the biggest prize."
