Whenever you need to find information fast, you usually make your query online on Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc. Any one of those search engines will find you a pretty decent answer quickly. But what if your question is more of a personal nature? Often times, you need to find out something that search engines may not list. It could be a romantic, health, educational, friendship, vacation or other question for which you want to get a personal answer. Sometimes personal answers from a peer are more efficient in matching your lifestyle than a canned response from a search engine. With Questionbook (your best friend, personal advisor, swami, you name it), you can now obtain these kinds of opinions and answers that may help to guide you in the direction you need to go. In this app, you pose your question of up to 200 characters. In a while, a live body or two, just like yourself who is also a user of Questionbook will answer your question. When you know that a real person is responding to your thoughts, you can often identify with that person and the fact that he or she has lived through this issue to be able to answer it. Some of the insightful features of Questionbook are as follows:

- Display of most recent question list
- Ability to browse question by category
- Ability to track your questions and answers
- Option to upload profile picture right from your iPhone
- Ability to see other users' activities
- List of leaderboard's top 10 users with highest points on a daily basis

Open Questionbook, and you will see that you may pose your question as a Guest or else take the small extra step and Sign Up. On this screen you will also see Category which provides several areas under which your question may fall. A few of the included Categories are Art, Business, Children, Computing, Education, Finance, Gadgets, Games, Lifestyle, Relationship, Sports, etc. In truth, I did not pay attention to the Category tab at first, and so just asked a question under the default which was iPhone. Now I know better, and can fine tune my questions next time. If you select the option, you can get an e-mail sent to you every time someone answers your question. It's very helpful so you don't need to keep checking the app in anticipation. However, be advised that some very bored people may answer your question in a nonsensical way which has no bearing on your question. The very bottom of the display has tabs for Ask, Answer, Browse, Account and Leaderboard. When you Browse, you may pick the category of questions in which you are interested to see if anyone may have have answered a similar question to yours previously.

Having browsed many items on Questionbook, I found that some were simple, others more difficult, and some just required a basic opinion. Tap Account and this will lead you to your very own question and answer area. My question was: "Is it necessary for kids to have a tutor to take SAT exams?" This is more of an opinion question, and that is why I chose to ask it here. I could ask a friend, but I always base my decisions on several answers to sort of average them out. In any event, I received a reply very shortly after. It was a decent response that made perfect sense and which I will add to my thought collections! Questionbook is an excellent way to connect to people on many levels. It is a helpful social networking app that may help relieve your mind of burdensome questions that you want to ask anonymously.
