24 Insightful Advice Apps

From Crowdsourced Guidance Apps to Medical Consultation Apps

— April 3, 2015 — Tech
Rather than turning to Siri or Google for help on anything from home repairs to love life dilemmas, there are a ton of advice apps that are popping up to connect you with a human expert instead.

While apps like Jelly and Crowdpilot take a more open-ended approach to providing aid across many areas, there are also dozens of standalone apps that will connect you with someone who is knowledgeable in a specific topic like gardening, wardrobe styling or the best nightlife activities.

Beyond hobbies and entertainment, there are several apps in the healthcare realm that help to provide advice on healthy water intake, diets and medical issues. Apps like First Opinion, SharePractice and HealthTap facilitate connections between professionals, as well as patients who are in need of opinions. These advice apps empower people to make informed decisions based on expertise from peers, which is definitely more reliable than what the Internet sometimes reports.
