It’s quiz applications season! Over the past two months we covered two startups that have built quiz type web and desktop applications. The first one was school revision mobile (and social) web startup, then there was Prov Labs who have done a provisional driver’s license test desktop application.
Recently, we got contacted by iDrive Zimbabwe, pointing us to a website they have come up with to solve basically the same problem Prov Labs is solving, but via the web. Remember we questioned Prov Labs’s decision to do desktop first and their response was that they had found people actually prefer to access the app even (especially actually) when they are off the net. Well, iDrive thinks it’s the other way.
Unlike the other two quiz applications, iDrive is free for anyone to use. They are focused on adverts for revenue. In terms of the content, information from them says they have about 500 Zim provisional driving test questions. This is your road signs, ‘which car goes first’ questions, and so on.
They’ll also, according to their email to us, have a directory of driving schools in Zimbabwe, probably for the purposes of helping people choose where they’ll do their training once they pass the test.
iDrive uses the Joomla CMS and a component called ARI Quiz.
