It's often said these days that people are nowhere near as cluey about the news and current events of the day as they used to be. This is strange in itself because we are subjected to more news stories than ever before via television, newspapers and online. Maybe it has something to do with the former and latter tending to offer up sound bites of news rather than the whole story. People tend to look at a headline and think they know all the facts rather than bothering to read all the details.

Here's a new game for iOS and Android that can do something about that whilst providing a heck of a lot of fun at the same time. Newsmeister is a short but meaty daily current affairs quiz based on US news stories of the day. These multiple choice quizzes, which are short and sweet at around 3 minutes a piece, help you to brush up on the latest news stories about politics, sport, pop culture, the history of the day, science, entertainment, literature and current affairs. Each question is accompanied by its original news source along with a full explanation of the correct answer. The questions are challenging and rely on the viewer actually having some knowledge of the subject matter and being aware of what's going on in the news in recent days. Trivia fans will love it.

Newsmeister is frequently updated with the latest stories and is the basis for great trivia...
