"It’s like a cross between Chatroulette and Quora with a sprinkling of Skype. A new app called ‘Questions – Ask and Answer’ lets you record a video of yourself asking a question … then wait for video replies to that question. Simple enough, right? You could use this app as a way to digital pen pals or, better yet, video-based pen pals with students from all over the world. However, it’s more about cultivating the best answer and less about social networking. In any case, the app is worth checking out and is quite fun to toy around with.
"You open up the app and can choose to ask or answer a question. Let’s say you have a burning question that Google or Facebook’s new Graph Search just can’t accurately answer. For example, you could ask something like ‘what do classrooms look like in New Zealand?’ After recording your 10-second video question, you upload and wait. While you wait, feel free to answer other questions asked by others."
