Social Questions: Quora Gets An – Unofficial – iPhone App

Social Q&A startup Quora recently hired an iOS developer, so chances are we’ll soon see an official iPhone (and iPad?) application emerge, even if its website already functions quite well on smartphones.

While you await said official app, be sure to check out Social Questions. Developed by Thomas Ricouard, the app will let you access and browse the Quora mobile website with a couple of handy additional shortcuts and faster navigation.

You can use the app to access your profile’s home page, inbox, notifications, and you can easily add a new question.

According to this thread on Quora, Ricouard asked for and received permission from Quora to publish the iPhone app on the App Store, as long as he didn’t name it so people would confuse it with an official product. Hence the name ‘Social Questions’.

As far as I can tell, there are two unofficial Android applications for Quora too.

Give it a whirl and let us know what you think.
