As if digital photography isn't perplexing enough, Harald Johnson has just released two versions of PhoozL IQ for iPad to complement the existing iPhone/iPod Touch versions. The larger screen is somewhat more embarrassing but the fun (and the education) makes up for it.

Photo Learning App PhoozL IQ Now on the iPad
PhoozL IQ for iPad is a fun, quiz-type game that allows photo enthusiasts of all levels (amateur to pro) to test their photo knowledge while learning more about photography.
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Photography education and gaming site PhoozL announces the iPad versions of its innovative quiz app for mobile: PhoozL IQ. Featuring large images and updated quiz questions, PhoozL IQ for iPad is a fun, quiz-type game that allows photo enthusiasts of all levels (amateur to pro) to test their photo knowledge while learning more about photography. Players can choose a free version with fewer and easier questions or a Pro (paid) version with double the number of questions, challenge and overall learning. PhoozL IQ is the world's first full-featured photography IQ quiz created for the mobile app platform.
Both versions of PhoozL IQ for iPad feature a collection of intuitive, easy-to-play quizzes, with 10 shuffled questions and entertaining graphics, sounds and music. There are different question types for all skill levels, with questions covering photography-related topics such as: cameras, composition, lighting, image editing, printing and photography history. Every question is a package comprising: the question, alternative answers (tap-choice, true-false, multiple-choice formats), a hint and a "factoid" for additional learning. The questions were developed with input from some of the most accomplished professional photographers and photo educators around the world.
The free version of PhoozL IQ for iPad includes 50 challenging questions and a longer time period for answering them. The Pro version includes 100 more-difficult questions and a shorter time clock. An optional Extended Play mode in the Pro version enables players to answer all 100 questions in one, intense, non-stop game session. Players can easily upgrade from free to Pro within the free app.
