Great apps make great platforms, and iOS and iPad are a great proof of that. One of the most captivating things about the iPad is the incredible range of great apps we are able to use and enjoy on Apple’s tablet. Each Saturday we share a favorite outstanding app as iPad App of the Week.
This week’s pick is Quora, the brand new iPad version of the iOS app for one of the web’s best question and answer sites. Quora is a place where you’ll see answers to in-depth questions on just about any topic under the sun answered by real experts and members of the Quora community.
The folks who run Quora are obviously excited about this new iPad version – they’ve even called it ‘the best reading experience on Quora’ in their blog post announcing Quora for iPad.
Here’s a slice of the short and sweet App Store description of Quora for iPad:
Quora is the best answer to any question.
• Ask questions and get great answers about anything
• Learn from experts about space travel, politics, or poker
I have to admit I’ve been only an occasional Quora recently, but the good news is that this iPad app is good enough to make me a more frequent user again. It’s a very nice way to browse the latest topics or just the topics I’m interested in – and it looks great in both portrait and landscape modes.
The app makes it easy to ask a new question and to add answers to questions, and to use a good range of formatting options with its rich-text editor.
I’ve been a Quora fan for years and hoping for an iPad version for a long while, so it’s great to see that now we have one.
Here’s an App Store link for Quora; it’s a free app and now a universal app designed for both iPad and iPhone.
