The Quora app is ostensibly the mobile version of the website. But what exactly is Quora? For the uninitiated, it's a Q&A social network where questions, dilemmas and quandaries are posed to the community-at-large by other members, who subsequently wait for the answer they're looking for. It's an excellent resource, particularly when search engines simply aren't producing the results you need.

The Quora app brings the functionality and connectivity of the website to your iOS or Android device. Moreover, it uses location services embedded in smartphones to encourage locals to interact. Imagine you just moved into town; you post a question about nearby laundromats and within minutes you'll receive detailed directions from a stranger down the street. Considering Quora's ability (or intention) to develop some community interdependence, it should come as no surprise that the application is entirely free.
