When you need to ask a favor of a friend or family member, it can be tough. You sometimes aren’t sure who the best person is to ask or just end up feeling like you put them on the spot. An app called AskAround makes this a little easier on you and them too. Not only can you ask favors from people you know, but others who live in your area. In addition, you get to offer them something in return for helping you out, making this a win-win situation.
Whether you need help moving, fixing a pipe, running an errand, or getting advice, AskAround has a spot for you. Just add a favor by giving it a name or short description and photo. Add what you are willing to give in return, post your favor, and see who is willing to help you. Anyone who responds can ask for something else back such as money, a gift, or their own favor.
AskAround isn’t really all about asking, but returning too. So, if you have no current need for help, why not lend a hand to someone else? You can browse through favors posted by others and reply to their request asking for something in return or maybe you would just enjoy the satisfaction of helping another person in need.
AskAround is a very different and creative way to get some help when you need it. The app allows you to respond to favors anonymously or using your profile. You can also share and post favors, so if someone is asking for help fixing their car, maybe you know a good mechanic that you can send the request to.
AskAround is designed for iPhone and available for free on the App Store with no in-app purchases.
