QuizMe

QuizMe is a trivia game about baseball, but you can use it as a template to build quizzes on any topic. With QuizMe the user steps through a series of questions, clicking a Next button to proceed to the next question. The user enters an answer for each question and the app reports whether each answer is correct or not. For this tutorial, you'll create an app in which the questions are always the same unless you, the programmer, change them. Later, you can create MakeAQuiz, an app that lets users create and modify the quiz questions.
