Hi all,

I am developing an Education Quiz Application. At the end of a level, students able to see and compare scores of other students.

Anyone have any idea or suggestions on doing this? Is it can using leaderboard feature of Game Center? Or We need to do a web service which used to store all the submitted scores and can pass the scores to the scoreboard in my application when needed?

Any ideas, comments and suggestions are welcome. Thanks a lot. :)

If you don't have an online connection all the time, just use a small database with the scores, insert them on users, or just 1 general leaderbord with a name connected. Then show that in a tableview. Or if you want it to be online, you can game center, you can just post them using the GameCenter stuffies.

Game Center in Education Application

Hi all,

I have some questions about Game Center.

In my education application, it contains some challenges and in each challenge got some questions let student answer. After finish each challenge, the student will get scores and can compare the scores with other students. For this compare score function, I wish to use Leaderboard feature in Game Center.

But, I think that my application seems not really a game and also didn't have much game / entertaining features, So, is it a problem if I using Game Center in my application? This is because I found some of them said that their application being rejected because they use Game Center in the application which does not have any game play or game features. So, can I use the Leaderboard feature in Game Center?

Any ideas and comments are welcome. Thanks a lot. :)

I think that's something you need to read the guides for, in that case, we just build our own scoreboards, because it's not that much of a hassle, 2 webservices and done..
For real games we implement GameCenter.

So make your "challenges" more fun and game like.

Edit: This thread really doesn't need to exist... It's an extension of the same question you asked less than a day ago...
