Apple releases first 99¢ iPod game: iQuiz

Posted by Dr. Macenstein

Apple has broken from its traditional $4.99 price structure and released the new iPod game iQuiz for just 99¢.

iQuiz is a pop culture trivia game designed to test your knowledge of music, movies, and TV shows. You can also choose Music Quiz 2 and iQuiz will test your knowledge of the music on your own iPod, asking questions about artists, tracks, and albums.

What’s unique about iQuiz among iPod games (aside from the price) is the ability to create your own custom trivia packs which you can then share with other players.

    Aspyr has a free utility for creating quizzes. Go to to download it.

    This is interesting. If you go to iTunes from that link above, you will see the price difference, one is .99 and other is 4.99 😛

    Wow, .99¢… that’s less than one cent!! That’s cheap!!

    Seriously, Macenstein… this is the kind of math that got Verizon in trouble. It’s either $0.99 or it’s 99¢.

    “.99¢” is less than “1.0¢” (which is $0.01) and is equal to “$0.0099”

  4. Thanks Kev, I’ve made that mistake before, I guess it’s something wired wrong in my brain.
    And oddly enough, I actually worked at Verizon for a few months…

    ha, that explains it! 🙂
    sorry for going off on you like that – just a pet peeve of mine 🙂

    Man, 99¢ (or $0.99 for Kev)? How can they afford that? Just to cover the development costs of this sophisticated piece of software they’ll have to sell 20, maybe even 25 copies. I can never figure out how Apple does this.
