Biz Stone’s Jelly wants to answer your questions using social, photos

He may have missed out when Twitter went public, but Biz Stone is clearly still fuelled by a desire to innovate and create things.

His latest effort, called Jelly, might however leave a few people scratching their heads. The product appears to be an attempt to expand on the basic concept of Quora by drawing on the wisdom of the crowd to answer your questions.

The major difference is that it doesn’t just exist as a self-contained question and answer network. Instead it draws on answers from Facebook and Twitter as well Jelly itself. Another difference is that you can use it identify objects in photos.

While the latter sounds particularly useful, we can’t help but wonder why the project’s been shrouded in mystery for so long. It’s a neat concept to be sure, but at first glance, opinion around Jelly seems divided at best:

If you’d like to make up your own mind, the app is available for Android and iOS right now.
