Post I Buzzed First! - a new iPhone Quiz Bowl Buzzer app
Hi all,

just a quick note to make you aware of the new iPhone app "I Buzzed First!", available now from the Apple App Store at http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/i-buzzed ... 22820?mt=8

The app is perfect for hosting Quiz Bowl type quizzes - each player runs the app on their iPhone in Contestant mode, and another iPhone runs as the Quiz Master. The first to buzz in with their buzzer locks all the other contestants out, until the quiz master starts the next round.

You can see I Buzzed First! in action on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/embed/MN9RHyMjTzA and there is a website as well at http://www.ibuzzedfirst.com

I certainly know of at least one teacher in West Virginia has already used the app to host a quiz bowl at their school. All that is required is each contestant and the quiz master have an iPhone with the app, and everybody connect to the same WiFi network.

Enjoy!

Nick has responded to comments about the app in a similar thread on hsquizbowl, so this is not just fly-by-night spam. Since this product is actually of potential use to the quiz bowl community and there is the potential for actual dialogue on its usefulness, I'm not going to relegate this thread to the spam holding pen.

Thanks Jason, I do genuinely hope I Buzzed First! could be useful to the quiz bowl community as you state.

As mentioned over in hsquizbowl, I am currently working on an Android version of the app, to be available very soon. Also, for V1.1 of the app, I intend to add extra features including simple scoring, and the ability to password-protect quizzes, so that only the permitted contestants can join a quiz, etc.

I certainly would welcome any suggestions regarding functionality that would make the app more useful to quiz bowl, for inclusion in future releases and versions.

Regards,
Nick Talbot

I am pleased to announce that I Buzzed First! is now available on Android phones, please visit the Android Market at:

http://market.android.com/details?id=IB ... uzzedFirst

This is hot off the press, just released a few hours ago. The app's own website http://www.ibuzzedfirst.com will also be updated over the weekend, and a new demonstration YouTube video added showing Android and iPhones working together.

The Android and iPhone versions of I Buzzed First! are totally compatible, and you can form a quiz with any combination and number of Android and iPhone/iPad/iPod devices.

Regards,
Nick Talbot
