QuizUp finally arrived for Android on March 6, four months after it arrived for iOS. And while it may be little surprise to many, it looks like its arrival on Google’s mobile operating system is boosting its uptake significantly.

While it garnered 10 million users in two months on iOS, the Icelandic startup behind the QuizUp, Plain Vanilla Games, has revealed it notched up one million downloads in the week after its launch. It’s now averaging around 100,000 new registered users each day, and claims a total of 12.5 million registered users across iOS and Android.

QuizUp follows the likes of Words With Friends by letting you pit your wits against buddies and strangers from around the world in a test of your knowledge. The app now features more than 200,000 questions across 400 topics, covering sport, TV, geography, history and all the rest.
