Aardvark is a social question and answer service that launched earlier this year. It has garnered quite a large following over this relatively short period of time, as it now sports almost 100,000 active users. This Q&A service is about to get much more popular thanks to a newly released iPhone and iPod touch app.
Aardvark Mobile is able to answer most of your questions, whether they are significant or ridiculous, in under five minutes. When you submit a question, the service searches for and discovers people who are online, people who can give clear and concise answers in a relatively short amount of time. The answers are then immediately sent to you, even if you don’t have the app launched thanks to Push Notifications. If you are feeling generous, you can also answer other people’s questions, you just have to tell the app what topics you would like to help out with.
Aardvark Mobile features a simple and polished interface, the ability to invite friends to participate, and the ability to post your questions to Facebook for even more opportunities to get an answer. You can also customize how often and when you are contacted by Aardvark, so you shouldn’t have to worry about getting spammed with questions during dinner.
The best part is that Aardvark Mobile is available in the App Store for free. So get out there and start asking questions and see what the Aardvark community can come up with.
