Terrifying Trivia

terrifying-trivia-app-banner-sot

Terrifying Trivia is a fun and exciting multiple-choice trivia game for the horror movie enthusiast!

There are ten levels for you to complete and each of these levels will have 10 questions that you must answer. To complete a level and advance to the next one you must answer 10 questions correctly and if you get three wrong you will have to start the level over again. For each question, you will be given four answers that you may select from. Selecting the correct answer will mark one off and you’ll advance to the next question. Get a question wrong and you will have to continue on to the next question without marking one off but don’t miss three otherwise you’re starting over!

Once you’ve answered the 10 questions correctly you will be given a final movie clip question that you will have to answer correctly in order to advance to the next level. Choose wisely as answering incorrectly will result in you having to restart the level that you’re currently on!

The questions in Terrifying Trivia were easy to start off with if you’ve seen a decent amount of popular horror films you’re sure to be just fine. As you advance into the higher levels things will become more difficult! Some questions will ask you about characters in movies, or authors of the book it was based upon, how many people were harmed in the move, and more!

Put your horror movie knowledge to the test with Terrifying Trivia, available for Android devices on the Google Play Store!

Top 5 Apps for Mobile Data on Samsung Galaxy S6

s6mobildata

Even though there are more Wi-Fi networks than ever, and mobile apps are becoming more conscientious about the data they consume, most people still need to be mindful of the amount of mobile data they use on their smartphones. The majority of smartphone users do not have an unlimited plan (and even some of those aren’t truly unlimited), and need to keep their data usage under a certain limit if they want to avoid overage fees.

We wrote about some features of the Galaxy S6 that help limit our data use in the article How to Manage Mobile Data on Samsung Galaxy S6. However, there are still more ways to help make our data plans stretch even farther. Check out State of Tech’s picks for the top five apps that will help make your mobile data last even longer:

 


dataeyeiconDataEyedataeyess

DataEye is a unique app when it comes to helping you save your data: like many apps, DataEye helps you find out what apps are using data and can block them. Where DataEye differs is a feature that is unlike anything else: providing apps that are “data free,” meaning they have no negative impact on your data usage. DataEye pulls this off by working with app developers and the carriers to provide usage of these apps using “sponsored” data provided by companies with apps and other content producers.

onavoiconOnavo Extendonavoss

Onavo Extend is kind of like magic. The app is able to simply reduce the amount of data you use across every activity on your Galaxy S6, regardless of which app it is. Now, Onavo Extend is not actually magic, the app runs in the background of your device to analyze and compress you data as often and as much as possible, seamlessly.

chromeiconChromechromedatasaver

“Wait,” you’re thinking, “Isn’t Chrome a browser? Aren’t we trying to SAVE data?” You are absolutely correct, dear reader. Chrome doesn’t make this list simply as a browser, but because the app now has a nifty little feature called Data Saver that can possibly reduce your browsing data by as much as 50%. To turn on Data Saver, open the Chrome app, tap on the three dot icon menu in the top left, tap on Settings, then Data Saver, then switch the toggle to the On position. After using the browser for a while, go back to that settings page to have a look at the amount of data that Data Saver has been able to save.

cmdatamanagericon CM Data Managercmdatass

Knowledge is power, and knowing exactly how much data your apps are using is one of the best ways to keep your data usage in check. There are quite a few apps on the Play store with the ability to track your mobile data usage, but CM Data Manager gets our pick for tracking with class. CM Data Manager features a gorgeous interface with tons of information about your data like which apps are the biggest data hogs, and giving you easy ways to check your data usage anywhere.

Your Carrier’s Appcarriers

Despite our best efforts at determining how much data we have used, our carriers probably count the 1’s and 0’s differently for a variety of reasons. With this fact in mind, it’s in our best interest to go to the source when it comes to finding out how much data we have used. Most carriers provide an app for mobile access to your account, and your plan’s data usage statistics. Conveniently, using your carrier’s specific app does not ding your data plan.

If you bought your Galaxy S6 directly from AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, or Sprint, you can find the account app pre-installed (look for MyAT&T, My Verizon Mobile, T-Mobile My Account, or Sprint Zone in your app drawer). An odd caveat: if you bought your phone unlocked, you cannot download the account app for Verizon or Sprint from the Google Play app store.

 

 

Top Five Free Keyboards for Samsung Galaxy S6

gs6keyboards

Just like you, we like to spice things up, and make our devices more useful and more fun.

Fleksy is a keyboard that focuses not so much on addition of features, but on careful refinement of the typing experience. With Fleksy, the name of the game is the speed and ease of typing, utilizing highly advanced auto correction algorithms so that you can type as fast and as sloppily as you want and Fleksy will, more likely than not, fully understand what you intended to type. Speed is also the reason behind their intuitive gestures for the most common keyboard actions to be lightning quick.

TouchPal is the most feature-packed addition to this lineup. Built on top of a remarkably good typing experience, TouchPal adds awesome features like Emoji, emoticons, and ASCII art, downloadable and customizable themes, a dedicated editing keyboard layout, trend tracking, and more. One of the most useful features, however, is the ability to resize the keyboard on the fly, so that you can have the most comfortable typing experience, or so that you can get the keyboard out of the way of what you want to see.

If you have the ink droplet jump onto a wall it will attach itself there allowing you to scale up walls or use them to get to higher parts of the level. You can also have the droplet jump and attach to spinning wheels that are floating over the machine maze but be careful, some of them can be saw blades and will destroy your inkblot. There are also slippery walls, attaching bee-like creatures, spike balls, and more that will try and stop you from complete the level.

There are different game modes in The Machine and each one comes with its own challenges. The Core and Hard Core mode are the core original game, but each one is respectively harder than the last. The Arcade mode will have you sending your ink droplet as high as you can, avoiding saw blades chasing you from the bottom of the screen.

Your objective is to get to the end of the level where you will jump into a portal and be transported to a different part of the machine. Along the way, you can collect gear that will help you unlock different achievements. The Machine connects with Google Play Games so you can earn points and challenge your friends to beat your high scores. Be the ultimate puzzle solver in The Machine!
