When people need information in the smartphone era, a search engine like Google (GOOG) is usually the first place they turn. One of Twitter’s (TWTR) early developers plans to change that.
Biz Stone, who departed Twitter in 2011, is the co-founder and CEO of Jelly, which has developed a mobile app that allows user questions to be answered by other users. Users can send queries either by text or by sharing a photo with friends from other social networks like Facebook (FB) and Twitter, Reuters notes.
Jelly has the backing of Twitter co-founders Jack Dorsey and Evan Williams. It has also garnered the support of Al Gore and U2’s Bono.
The app, which launched on Tuesday, is available for Apple’s (AAPL) iPhones and smartphones running Google’s Android. The app is free to download.
Twitter held a successful IPO in November. TWTR stock has soared since the IPO.
