Developer’s Notes

This was my first quiz iPhone app and it was the first time I’d used a GameSalad template to build the app.  I bought it from GSHelper.com (the GameSalad tutorial site run by Stacey Bennet who is more well-known as “TShirtBooth.”   He has a ton of knowledge, great tutorials and some pretty clever templates for sale as well as a few great free things.

I actually added some features to his original iPhone quiz template such as the ability to be sure each question is only selected ONCE in each 10 question trivia/quiz game.  I didn’t like the idea of the same question accidentally coming up.  As with any template, I spiced up the graphics a little bit, changed the sounds around and generally made it more to my style of game play.

What did I spent most of my time on?  The questions!  I’m only about 1/8th Irish so I didn’t know a lot of the answers to the questions in the app originally.  I read a few different books (they’re like battery-free Kindles!) and I did a fair bit of research online to put together the questions.  I wanted questions that were fun, were a little more “trivial” in nature than just hard history facts about Ireland and I purposely didn’t put in anything too obscure or difficult.  In my research I found a fair bit of conflicting information about St. Patrick’s Day, particularly around the history of St. Patrick’s Day and it’s many celebrations and parades.  There is nothing more frustrating than playing a trivia game and having an answer marked as “wrong” when you know it’s at least partially right (and can site sources!)

In all my research I actually learned a fair bit about Ireland, the Irish culture and St. Patrick that I wasn’t fully aware of before.  It’s definitely on my list of places to visit now!
