Remember when Ask Jeeves was cool? And you wanted the actual Jeeves character to be your uncle or something? Yea, me neither. Sorry about your misfortune in the search engine market, Ask, but Google’s got that locked up for the time being. We love what you’ve done with the new place, though, getting back to the roots of your name and allowing a self-propagating community to spread knowledge to anyone who seeks it. Kudos. Apps of the day is below.
Ask.com – Ask.com slowly transformed into a questions and answers portal after Google pimp-slapped all search competitors out of the game a while ago. Jeeves wasn’t at all happy about that. But as Ask looks to go up against Yahoo Answers, they have decided to take their platform mobile. Ask questions, get answers. Or answer them if you feel you’re up to it. And some questions will even garner instant answers like “what’s the weather in New York?” Go ahead and download it for free. [Market]
Drawdle – Doogle games are fun, but when you’re doing the doodling yourself, well, they become a lot more fun. That’s why Drawdle drew me in as soon as I laid eyes on it. (See what I did there?) In Drawdle, you drop shapes – doesn’t matter what, really. You can then fling those shapes into a paint balloon that’ll paint other shapes. Spikes will spoil your artistic side if you aren’t careful, and rubber bands are at your disposal to help you out in your quest to be the next Picasso. Free version is available at the link ahead.
