Quizgecko App: How & Why To Use Quizgecko On Your Phone Header Image

Since Quizgecko launched back in 2022, we’ve had thousands of people from all across the world use our website to create AI-generated quizzes to help with revision, to set homework, to train teams, or to simply quiz their friends.

You could always create quizzes on mobile using our website, but we wanted to take it to the next level with a custom app. Available to download for free on iOS and Android, we’ve improved usability, introduced a faster, more optimized performance, and even thrown in some exciting new app-exclusive features 👀

Why are the benefits of downloading the Quizgecko app?

Create quizzes from photos

We’ve created a brand new feature for the app – being able to create quizzes directly from your photos. Simply take photos of your study notes or textbooks - whatever you like. Although, urm, slightly neater handwriting is preferred! Upload up to ten photos and we’ll use our AI system to generate a quiz based on the information you’ve photographed.

Faster, optimized performance for mobile

Apps often deliver a superior user experience in terms of performance, which means they can generally feel faster and more responsive. This is because of how they store and access data. Websites rely on the internet to download information and resources each time you use them, but mobile apps store essential data and functionality directly on your device, saving loading time.

Free to download

The app is free to download and try out with limited access, so you can see for yourself if it’s the right app for you. For everyone with a paid plan, full access to the app is a free bonus feature – you don’t have to pay any extra!

Available on iOS and Android

No matter what brand your phone is, you’ll be able to download the iPhone/iPad/iOS version from the Apple app store and get the Android version on the Google Play store.

Benefits for students

  • Accessible anywhere. Forget lugging around all your heavy textbooks around every time you want to study – all you need is your phone to study on the go!

  • Bite size study sessions. Using Quizgecko app makes fitting revision sessions simple, whether that’s on the bus, before class, waiting in line for lunch – or simply whenever it suits you. With our app, you can study whilst you’re out and about like Patricia on TikTok.

  • Custom quizzes based on the exact topics you’re studying. These aren’t generic quizzes that might miss details you need to know – you get to enter the information you want to learn from.

Benefits for teachers

  • Generate quizzes wherever you are. Your account will sync across both your phone and the website, so you can create quizzes whenever you want.
  • Quickly create quizzes based on the curriculum you teach. Forget having to manually build quizzes – take photos of the textbook you’re teaching from, or your lesson plans to develop quizzes in seconds that are based on what you actually want your students to learn.
