The App That Can Answer Almost Anything*

*This is a collaborative post*
It would appear that there is now an app for everything. Perhaps you yourself are fond of using them? Or maybe you're sat reading this and you haven't a clue what an app is? An app is an abbreviation for the word application. It's basically a piece of software which can be downloaded onto a device such as a mobile phone. Designed to make life easier or provide you with information at the touch of a button or swipe of a finger, these days there are apps for booking dental appointments, for booking classes at the gym, for tracking how many steps you've taken that day, and even to tell you when you're due your period!

I've tried the Lady Cashback app which allows you to not just save money when you shop but to earn cashback too, always a plus! And I've also got an app which I use for scheduling my social media. I highly recommend this. But it would seem that I'm a bit behind the times with regards to all the others.

My colleague mentioned an app that she uses which is designed for vegetarians and it sounds fantastic. It tracks your location and then notifies you of vegetarian restaurants in your vicinity. There's one for vegans too. Most recently I heard of Ask Bongo, Australia's largest SMS information service. Known as 'the smartest monkey you will ever meet,' Bongo can answer questions on literally anything. Current business development manager, Caroline Thompson, says that the idea came about after a flippant comment was made by one of Ask Bongo's founders when he needed to find out a piece of information. He thought it would be great if he could just send a text with the question, and thus Ask Bongo was born.

An ideal solution for when you're stuck helping the kids with their homework, cheating at the pub quiz, finding out the football score or when your train is due. The possibilities are endless as like it says on the website, 'Bongo is a monkey that knows everything about everyone!'

Obviously as an SMS message information service there will be charges involved so it's vital that you check with the bill payer before trying this app. Of course as with everything, there are also terms and conditions so I highly recommend that you have a read of these too.

Are you a fan of apps? Do you live your life by them? What are your thoughts on an SMS information service like Ask Bongo?

Until next time...
