Ask.com has released its mobile application for iPhone that allows users to ask and answer questions from their mobile devices.
Previously only limited to a subset of Ask.com website users, the full Ask.com Q&A experience is now available to anyone who downloads the app.
“Millions of people come to Ask.com with their questions everyday – now they don't have to wait until they get back to their computers to get the answers they need," said Doug Leeds, President, Ask.com US.
"The number of questions posed on Ask.com has steadily increased since our Q&A beta launch and the addition of our mobile app helps us do a better job of getting those answers, either from the web or from people nearby."
Features of Ask for iPhone include:
*Combination of search and real people. Ask for iPhone answers questions using either search technology or information from people.
*Say your question. Voice to text functionality allows users to ask questions without typing.
*Intelligent question routing. Mobile users' questions don't just get routed to other devices, they get delivered to any Ask.com user who is qualified to answer.
*Answers find you. Push notifications include the entire answer, no clicking through to the Ask.com site
By the end of the year, Ask for iPhone will also allow users to browse questions within their immediate surroundings, route location-specific questions to nearby Ask.com members and review recent questions asked about nearby points of interest.
