This game came from a collection of data that a group had carefully input and trained since, if I recall, 1988 and for years the online game was limited to only those folks. When the game launched it was remarkably prescient. I couldn't think of more challenging examples; it would constantly guess right. Then I noticed as time went on, it went from remarkable to above average to ordinary to honestly quite bad. What it took decades to train was ruined over a few months by the ignorance of the netizens, who were so inaccurate with their answers that the neutral net underwent a kind of Flowers for Algernon regression back to its nascency. As for this app, which presumably uses the classification factors or a subset thereof... my object was an "egg" and it couldn't even get that right. The lesson is not to trust the unchecked, uneducated input data of the average human being, unless you want a payload of trash data that doesn't converge on anything.
I am extremely disappointed in this app that "claims" to be 20Q! It's barely even close to even being a game app!🙄 I love my real 20Q, and have enjoyed hours of fun since I bought it several years ago. And, when I saw this "20Q" app, I was so very happy! That is, until I actually downloaded it and played it! You have to pick really, really common objects or it will never "get it"! 🙄🙄 I say that if you love the original 20Q, then, free or not, don't even waste your time downloading it....👎🏼👎🏼
Though the graphics may not be up to today's app standards, the game's setup and content are what make it great. The commentary from the supposedly psychic inquirer is hilarious and makes the game more realistic and amusing. The music is lovely. Sometimes the dial (which you use to select Yes or No) freezes, but you can just tap Yes or No to fix this. I would definitely recommend this game to anyone looking for a 20 Questions game.
When I was younger, I had a little game called 20Q and I figured since it’s new technology now—there’s an app. Using this app, I was thinking of the most basic items and they got it COMPLETELY wrong like way left field. This happened more than once! With different people! That being said, I uninstalled it and will be looking for a different app or just not an app at all. Time to buy some new batteries for my childhood game. Ps. When it first opened, it said “this won’t work on a jailbroken phone” and force closed. My phone is not, nor has it ever been, jailbroken. So....need some spray for that bug.
I remember when I had a hand held sphere like version of the game back before it was on the internet and it was amazing and could guess almost anything most of the time. When you compare that to this app, it is a lot worse. I tried describing many different things on the app and it got only a couple within 20q. If you are getting the game to guess your thoughts it isn’t great but if you are looking for a mind reading app.
Great fun. A great practical application of analytics; especially explaining the way machine learning algorithms work to youngsters. It would be nice to see the data-driven contradictions like on the website. Also, it would be beneficial to the learning algorithm to provide the answer when 20q fails to supply the right answer after 20+ questions. Otherwise, awesome!!
I could hardly ever finish a game because the app was so glitchy. Also, it’s always wrong. I made my choices simpler and simpler and it still was getting them wrong. Out of the many times I played, I only finished one or two games where it had the right answer. It’s a shame. I used to love this game.
Don’t listen to the other bad comments. This app is awesome!!! The other people are just trying to get into your mind. When you get upset, just say pineapple. I’m serious. Not joking. It actually works!
I had the original electronic 20Q game and almost never could stump it. But this app us nowhere near as “smart.” I win 80% of the time. Was this even programmed by the same developers? I think not l. Still fun to play if you’re bored, though.
When I first opened it, it said something about a jail broken device. Which is dumb because this iPhone SE is brand new. Secondly I am not able to play music in the background while using the app. I downloaded this despite the bad reviews to see what it was like and I was very disappointed. The hand held game or website itself is better than this.
Years ago I had one of the original 20Q devices. I was impressed with how frequently it would correctly guess what you were thinking. With the advances in technology, I expected this app would be at least as clever if not better. It's surprisingly worse!
I started out with the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Nevada sign hoping to stump this app. Turns out it couldn’t even get “pillow” or “trash can” correct. Someone needs to make a good version of this app.
If you have to have it on your iPhone, it's okay. But the PC version is a lot better and has many categories too. Also, the setup of the app is rather tacky. The way you select your answers, home screen, music, etc. If you want good game of 20Q, just search it up on the web and you'll find it.
Almost as fun as it used to be. Not quite as accurate as I remember it but still fun nonetheless! Graphics could use some updating, but I'm happy the ads are not glaring and annoying. Thanks for making this fun app
I absolutely love this game the first time I played it it actually guessed it right I do think though that it should make different levels like easy medium hard extra hard etc besides that it's a great game and totally recommend it👍👌
This is no where close to the web browser version. So far it couldn't answer correctly out of ten questions. The real version will get it everytime. This is a waste of space and like someone else said really tacky on how it's design and with the wordings. Sigh just another app in need to be deleted.
I have an iPad Air and the app doesn't allow you to select the answers to the questions! I uninstalled and reinstalled still the same issue. In app support link goes to the website with no way to contact them!
The game will not work on my iPad Air. It asks a question, animal, mineral or plant, but there's no place to enter an answer. Just a blank box, and that's how it stays. Already tried resetting and even re downloaded it. No change.
The makers of the award-winning 20Q® electronic toy bring its eerily accurate artificial intelligence to an App. If it doesn't say 20Q how can it read your mind? You will be constantly amazed at 20Q's spooky ability to know what you're thinking. To play, think of something... anything... then answer a series of twenty questions. If it guesses within twenty questions, it wins. If not, you win! It's hours of fun as you try to stump 20Q. Play alone or use your iPad's AirPlay feature for group play. Can you stump the "all knowing" artificial intelligence of 20Q? You can play in English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish, and easily switch between languages. Play 20Q!
