OTTAWA, CANADA, August 15, 2014—The wonderous and spooky 20Q A.I.,
who knows about thousands of things and reads your mind, is now available at the App Store, listed as 20Q® by 20Q.net Inc.
Over the past twenty-six years, the 20Q A.I., has taken on the world via the Internet,
an award-winning handheld game, a T.V. game show, and now iOS! The not-so-humble 20Q A.I. and its incredible mental powers have been captured in a new free-to-play iPad version, with some help from 20Q.net Inc. and Brashworks Studios Inc.
20Q has played nearly 87 million games on the Internet alone, and has learned a lot since its last mobile update. It’s smarter than ever when it comes to invading your consciousness;
for the smarty-pants amongst us who speak more than one language, you can switch between languages whenever you like. The 20Q iOS app guesses what you’re thinking in three dialects of English,
or in French, Italian, German or Spanish.
Download the app and play in five languages, using the new, easy-to-use controls for answering questions. iPad features allow for more subtle responses than in the past,
allowing 20Q to zero in on your thoughts and guess what you’re thinking more easily than ever before!
You’ll be able to review your history and see past games,
which means you’ll always be reminded who the champ is – but you’ll be compelled to keep trying to stump the A.I.! Someday you may prevail, or 20Q may take pity on you and let you win…or not…!
Don’t worry if you are thin skinned, there’s a setting that prevents 20Q from taunting you even when you deserve it. If you can’t face the reality of being mortal and powerless
to stop 20Q from reading your thoughts, you can disable its witty banter. But, 20Q can still get in your head, even with its poker face on.
So, go to the App Store and see what 20Q can do when it has a whole iPad to think with instead of a mere 150 milliseconds of server time.
