We are big fans of HQ at Rerun HQ, so much so we once even created our own game show app as part of a lab day.
Recently it has emerged that the trivia gameshow's downloads have started to decline. Will the launch of their Apple TV App help grow player numbers?
According to App Annie’s app store ranking history, on iOS HQ has fallen from the No. 1 U.S. trivia game to No. 10, from the No. 44 game to No. 196, and from the No. 151 overall app to No. 585. It’s exhibited a similar decline on Android.
Despite the lower ranking in the charts, we must not forget that HQ changed an old and dated gameshow format. Introducing a new interactive experience with daily audiences of over 500,000 players.
CEO of HQ, Rus Yusupov, weighed in on the decline letting people know that they are "developing new game formats, one of which we think is really special and complements Trivia nicely".
With the release of their Apple TV App enabling HQ to enter the living room experience we predict it will move back up the charts soon.
