Need a Quick Opinion? There’s An App For That

Via Mashable.Com


Does this shirt go with these pants? Is the Galaxy S III a great phone? If you’re looking for a quick opinion on something, there’s now an app for that. Appropriately named “Thumb,” the app lets you ask yes or no questions and get a thumbs up or down from the community.

The app has been around since July 2010 and just launched version 3.0, which revamps the experience and adds a number of new features into the mix.

“Anything you can potentially ask for an opinion of people did it, and that kind of blew us away,” Thumb CEO Dan Kurani told Mashable about the app’s early days. “We thought we were building a utility and we found out when we launched it that it’s very much a social tool that we’re building.”

A social network based on opinions, questions you ask on Thumb can be targeted at a specific group -– say women under the age of 30 -– or asked to the masses. You can also just post something you like or dislike to the service without asking a question at all.
