Why This is Wirefly BUZZworthy

Jelly is a brand new smartphone app created by Twitter, designed for you to ask and answer questions.

With Jelly, you can take a photo of something, draw on it, circle something in it, and comment or ask a question. Then you send this out to your followers from Twitter and Facebook and see what your friends have to say.

If you've always wondered how long that old restaurant in town has been there, go ahead and post it to Jelly. One of your friends, family, or followers might have an answer for you.

Jelly works well in any setting because it's a combination of a social media app and a search engine. You use your friends to answer your questions, which might ultimately be much easier than using a search engine to hunt for an obscure image or the answer to a question you have. At least your friends know what you are talking about!

A great feature of Jelly is that you can ask questions to your friends who aren't on the app because it will post through Twitter and Facebook. So if you're the first of your friends to download the brand new smartphone app, you might encourage them to download it as well, or give them the option to answer you through the other leading apps. 

Wherever you are, you're bound to have questions about your surroundings, whether you're an avid walker or just notice things on your commute to work. The app works as well as you can communicate with your friends and hopefully you'll help someone else through it as well.

While you're thinking about downloading this app, remember that it's still new and only available on some of the newest Android and Apple devices, like the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S 4. And of course, remember to check out Wirefly to see the greatest deals on these smartphones!

It always pays off to help others, and that's what Jelly aims to do.
