One of my passions is trivia, and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire 2011 doesn’t disappoint. This $1.99 app for the iPhone is sure to please anyone who loves the show. The questions in round one are randomly selected, as are the amounts to which they are associated.

You have three lifelines, one of which is “Ask the Audience.” From what I can tell, the latter never fails, so you can at least count on that. The other two lifelines are just skipping over that question. Of course you will lose any money associated with that question. If you answer all the questions in the first round correctly, you move on to round two where you can win the big money all the way up to one million dollars.

The  app, which is based on the television show, is great fun, and will keep you entertained for hours.

There’s a lot to like about this game: the music, the simple layout and the game itself. I like that it keeps track of your lifetime earnings, and this is how you compete with others. It also shows you statistics based on the type of question you answered. It boasts more than 1,000 general knowledge questions. And also has several achievements that you can gain as you play. The only thing I didn’t like about the app is that there is no way to alert users to move forward to the next screen. It might seem like a little thing, but it would have been helpful to have that in the first game. That doesn’t stop this app from being a five bar app, though. It’s also available in a lite version.
