We’ve been slow to warm to some offerings of modern technology. We entered the smart phone arena a little bit late and the whole fascination with apps, eludes us. We don’t get the concept of earning worthless imaginary points just for going to a restaurant. Granted we’re in the camp that won’t pay for an iPhone application, so it’s not surprising that we’ve been underwhelmed by the experience — until now.

Someone recently turned us on to QRANK, the addictive trivia app. Here’s the drill. Each day you get to take a free quiz. You choose 15 random questions out of the available 20 from the categories of the day. There are seven areas of expertise in total Entertainment, Sports, Science & Nature, Literature, History & Place, Business & Government and Life. Each question has a value of 200, 400 or 1,000 points and there are bonuses to be scored along the way.

If you see a little leaf on the question mark icon, you’ll know that it’s fresh — pulled directly from the headlines of the day. Once you get sucked into QRANK, you’ll find that you’re following the news a bit more closely.

Plus the only thing better than feeling smart, is feeling superior. QRANK rates your performance against everyone else that plays in your local area, state, nation and around the globe. Plus you can see how you stack up against your friends — and, really, isn’t being smarter than the guy in the cubicle next to you what gets you through the tough days at work?
Check out QRANK in your smart phone App store or on Facebook.
