Fans of the highly addictive BBC1 game show Pointless can now play the game themselves thanks to a new official app.

Coming soon to Android and currently available on IOS (iPhone), the Pointless app costs £1.49, allows you to challenge other Pointless fans and features more than 900 questions.

“For ages people have been asking me why there isn’t a Pointless app, and I always had to make up some sort of answer,” explains Pointless host Alexander Armstrong. “Saying ‘Because of non-alignment of data across territories’ always worked better than ‘It’s because of the beavers’. But now I don’t have to make stuff up any more because the Pointless app is here. Hooray!”
