No matter what device you use, trivia games can be a fun way to pass the time. The "IMDb Trivia" app was released for the iPad in September 2011. The Internet Movie Database (IMDb) at imdb.com manages a wealth of information about movies, television and the people involved in film entertainment. The site is a seemingly endless resource for movie and TV trivia, making it a natural launch pad for a trivia game.

"IMDb Trivia" presents questions in a variety of ways, such as matching actors' photos with the movies they appear in, and matching a quote to a specific TV show. The app displays your current score in the lower left corner of the screen while you play, and it advances you through five levels of difficulty as you play. The app itself is free, though it offers add-ons like additional trivia packs, which you can purchase from within the app.

In its first month, the reviews for the "IMDb Trivia" app were good. Players commented that the app was easy to use and that they appreciated the variety of questions and different levels. In addition, since all the trivia is based in text and graphics rather than sound, there's no need to have the volume up for this game.

Like trivia games, the next noise-free iPad game takes its origins from activities we enjoyed even before electronic devices.
