If there's one thing the folks at Screenlife know, it's how to occupy a market space. What started out as a DVD- and card-based party game for film buffs has evolved and spread to consoles from Xbox 360 to PlayStation and Wii, social media sites such as Facebook, and now to the mobile platforms of iPhone and iPad.

Like the original game, the app serves up trivia, images and video, now optimized for mobile devices. It's designed for party play, and the iPad high-def version will get the joint jumping. Available genre packs include comedy, romance and horror, as well as the Twilight series, the Harry Potter series and the TV show "30 Rock."

To help bring Android users in from the cold, Screenlife has also released Scene It? Daily, which offers daily updated quizzes covering movies, TV, music and celebrities.
