An app created by UCLan students to test out knowledge of Preston North End is proving a hit for hundreds of people, including PNE star John Welsh.
‘Preston North End Fan Quiz’ became available on Android on Monday and has since received more than 12000 Twitter impressions and been downloaded over 300 times.
It is now proving so popular fans are demanding an iOS version.
The team of creators are six Software Engineering students at UCLan and created the app as part of a project for their course.
Joseph Horan, one of the creators, said: “We have been totally blown away by the feedback and support we have received regarding the app. We’ve had professional footballers such as John Welsh retweeting and taking part in the app itself!”
It asks questions on a number of topics relating to the Lilywhites ranging from the formation of the club to their current league status.
Mr Horan and the rest of his team are now looking for ways to keep the app fresh and therefore encourage even more people to download their work.
He said: “The team as a whole have expressed interest in taking this application to the next level, maybe iOS version and online questions that allow users to upload new questions themselves.”
‘Preston North End Fan Quiz’ is available to download on all Android devices. Why not test your knowledge of UCLan’s local Football League club?
