App description: Sortle is all about sorting things in the right order. Which is higher, longer, faster, older or more expensive etc... you get the point.

Challenge your friends in a Trivia game where you dont really need to know the correct answer, just have an idea of how things relate to each other.


------------------------


For instance, how tall is Tom Cruise? If youre not a huge Tom Cruise fan you probably dont know the answer, but you might know that he is shorter than both Katie Holmes and Nicole Kidman? And probably a lot taller than an Ewok! Or ok, at least a little bit taller than an Ewok?

You might not know exactly how old the pyramids are, but you probably know they were built before World War II and after all the dinosaurs died? But is it older than all the other Wonders of the World or not?

Challenge your friends. Connect to Facebook to see which of your friends are playing Sortle. Got no friends? Dont worry, you can even play against random people.

Use the chat function to congratulate, to gloat or get to know your opponent. Heck, you might even find the future love of your life if youre as smooth in the chat room as you are talented at sorting.

So, what are you waiting for? Become a Sortler and get you facts straight!


----------------------------

Anders's comments:




Hi guys, I'm back with a new game.

This time it's a game tailored for Jared who has lots of useless knowledge, and all of you who like quiz games, word games, Wordfeud etc in general.

Imagine a Trivia game where you dont really need to know specific facts in order to score points. Where not every question is about stuff you should know and never really bothered learning - thats Sortle for you.

In Jeopardy or Trivial Pursuit (or other games like them) there are always a bunch of questions that you are supposed to know the answer to and then you feel like a real knuckle head when you dont.

Sortle is not about knowing the exact facts, although it sure doesnt hurt if you do, but rather about knowing how things relate to each other and sorting them in the correct order. Sortle is more about knowing a little bit of everything.


Just getting some of the items you sort right will give you satisfying points and the things you sort arent just the traditional stuff about wars, religion, history and sports, but also about a bunch of fun stuff that we guess you can call useless knowledge. Who doesnt have a bunch of useless knowledge?

What burns more calories? Whats the most common cause of death in America? Which celebrities have the largest feet? And where in the world can you find the cheapest Big Mac? These are all questions you can expect to get in Sortle together with the more common trivia questions like: Who became president first? Which invention is older? Which river is longer? Or who have won the most Gold medals in all of the Summer Olympics?

Its not always so easy, but then again its not supposed to be.

fun game! but you can only have three games available at a time... then have to upgrade for $3. I would for $1 but not $3.

Hi Anders. Fun game! However, I'm having some issues on non-widescreen 4s running iOS 6.1. For example, on the "new game" screen, the "practice" button is cut off and I can't scroll it into view. Nothing game-breaking but thought you might want to know. Ok, back to the game!

Thanks for your new game Anders!
Two quick questions:
1) iPad update?
2) Other languages planned?
Thanks again!

Love the game so far, but i did already had the exact same question not so far apart.
And I would buy the upgrade immediqtly for a buck, but now for 3 bucks, i'm still in doubt.

Found a few bugs (iPhone 4s 6.1.3):

Can't scroll down to practise on select new game menu (as said above)

Sometimes have two games start against the same random apponent when I only started one game

Sometimes after playing the final round it shows the overall score as zero for each round. If I then leave the game back to the main menu, it says it's my turn again and I get to play the round again.

Had one game show all zeros after the last round, left the game back to main menu and I had actually lost the game.


Hope these help

Good game. Liking it quite a lot so far.
Minor problem: noticing quite a few grammar / spelling mistakes which end up cheapening what is otherwise an uber-professional looking game...

Apparently the Egyptians started building the Pyramids before the first life on Earth and before Homo sapiens evolved.

Thanks! $3 seems pretty standard for Trivia games. We'll see how people respond to the price and adjust accordingly.

Yup sorry about that. It's been fixed and I submitted an update yesterday with a slew of bug fixes. Hopefully it'll be out in a couple of days.

Yeah this may be a feature we may remove in a future update. I'll bring it up for discussion.

1) We might consider it depending on how well the game does. I think Android will be implemented first though.
2. Yup planned, also localized content. Again, depends on how well it does.

With the same question, do you mean it had the exact same answers as well? In that case it's just bad luck, we have around 1000 now and the questions are chosen randomly. We add more all the time too!

Thanks! Yeah there are some bugs unfortunately. I submitted an update yesterday, hopefully some of the above are sorted out.

Fixed, thanks


Having said that, we are going to have each question reviewed by three people before uploading them. That should keep any errors to a minimum.
