New Photo IQ App Makes It Fun To Learn About Photography
Charlottesville, Virginia - Photography game and education site PhoozL announces v1.1 of the world’s first Photo IQ quiz app for iPhone* and iPod touch: “PhoozL IQ: A Photo IQ Quiz.” PhoozL IQ is a fun, quiz-type game that allows photo enthusiasts of all levels (amateur to pro) to test their photo knowledge while learning even more about photography in the process. PhoozL IQ is the world’s first photography IQ quiz created for the mobile app platform.
Both versions of PhoozL IQ feature a collection of intuitive, easy-to-play quizzes, with 10 shuffled questions and entertaining graphics, sounds, and music. There are different question types for all skill levels, with questions covering photography-related topics such as: cameras, composition, lighting, image editing, printing, and photography history. Every question is a package comprising: the question, alternative answers (tap-choice, true-false, multiple-choice formats), a hint, and a “factoid” for additional learning. The questions were developed with input from some of the most accomplished professional photographers and imaging experts from around the world.
The FREE version of PhoozL IQ includes 50 challenging questions and a longer time period for answering the questions. The PRO version includes 100 more-difficult questions and a shorter time clock.
