    This is a really great app. There are many times I want to know questions like this to real time issues, such as the line at a lunch place. So far nothing like this exists. Great work!

    Nice unique idea!. If using smart phone is possible, it is so nice:) (Sorry I did not check it via smart phone)

    KISSmetrics

    Neat idea, many have tried stuff like this before. Has a chicken / egg problem. Implementation is decent, design is not really useable.

      Thank for the vote. We were planning on using Twitter and Twilio to increase engagement, we just ran out of time.

      With respect to the design, did you view on a mobile device?

      You can use it on a PC but the UI isn't really designed for that yet.

    Love the idea but it doesn't seem to show posts by location or even show the location of the posts.

  • contestant

    If this would have a big community this can be a problem solving app. Well done!

    Local Q&A sites require mass adoption to have a fighting chance at actually becoming useful. I feel like any concept that doesn't address this problem isn't really quite complete.

      We were planning on getting it to (ab)use twitter to tweet at restaurants that someone was asking a question about them and giving them a link to respond but ran out of time.

  • contestant

    Am I right in assuming you rely on other users to answer the questions? I can imagine the location based aspect giving me just questions related to where I am when I use the app. Nice to see a complete app!

    • ctborg
      contestant

      You are correct. Thanks for the vote!

  • contestant

    Seems like a cool idea, but it requires people to be checking this app fairly often to answer questions, not just ask them.

      We were planning on using Twitter and Twilio to solve this problem, but we ran out of time.

    This is a nice concept but I think it's still in an early stage of development. There could probably be more done in 48h.

      True. Although, due to circumstances beyond our control we really only spent 24h on it.
