Microsoft Europe announces Quiz App; will allow users to win prizes

Everyone loves something for free, especially owners of smartphones and tablets. Today, Microsoft's European division has announced plans to release a new app designed to offer users a chance to win a number of Microsoft-themed prizes.

It's called simply Microsoft Quiz App, and it will be released not just for Windows Phone and Windows 8 platforms but for iOS and Android devices as well. The official blog post doesn't have a lot of details yet, but it does have a YouTube clip, shown above, that offers up an animated demo of what it will be like.

While the recently launched Google Opinion Rewards app for Android lets users collect Google Play credits, it appears that the Microsoft Quiz App will offer people a way to win, or offer a chance to win prizes by answering simple questions such as, "What year did Microsoft start?". The clip also seems to show that users can send their achievements to friends and invite them to answer questions as well.

The app has not been launched yet, but the blog post makes it sound like it will happen very soon. Since this is being promoted by the European Microsoft offices, it's possible that it won't be made available in the U.S.
