Evincible is available for free download, or $0.99 for a Premium version including additional categories, from Apple's App Store.

After selecting a category, players give their opponents three clues to guess a word. The more guesses it takes for the opponent to correctly guess the word, the more points the challenger receives. Categories range from groups of everyday words like Food or Household items to more pop-culture focused categories like Celebrities and Movie Titles.
