- Playlists scale in difficulty depending on players' knowledge
- Can be played alone or with up to 4 players on the same iPhone/iPod Touch
- Players compete with published scores both against friends and on global ladders through OpenFeint
- Several modes of play:
- "Timer" mode where the first to buzz with the correct answer wins
- "MCQ" mode where multiple choice answers are proposed and as the time runs out the wrong answers disappear for a lower score
- "Expert" mode for experienced players, who will enter answers using the iPhone keyboard
The application is free to download and includes a free 50-song playlist to allow users to discover the game. Players can then purchase 100-song playlists (genres include TV Shows, Pop-Rock, and Rap, among others) in-app at $1.99 each.
