Yahoo recently debuted Yahoo Answers Now, a native app version of its popular Q&A site. The app has secretly been in the App Store for months under a different name, according to TechCrunch.

yahooanswers
The app allows Yahoo Answers users to post and answer questions on the go. They'll also be able to more easily craft rich media responses to questions and get matched up with questions they might be able to answer. Like the website, users can build followings based on their answers.

Answers Now secretly made its way onto the App Store as "Yahoo Hive" in June, giving the company a way to tweak the app in relative quiet. The app is part of Yahoo's larger goal to translate its popular websites, like Yahoo Finance, Fantasy Football, and Yahoo Weather, into apps.

Yahoo also updated the app yesterday with new features, adding the ability to search for questions and answers, search the web for links to source answers, edit questions, answers and profile information, and click on hyperlinks.

Yahoo Answers Now currently requires an invite code to use. Those interested in using the app can request an invite code by emailing yan-invites@yahoo-inc.com.

Yahoo Answers Now is available in the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

Q: Why did you willingly give all the content of all your users email's to the govt?

A: Because we don't respect our users at all.

Q: So is it true that the whole game plan for Yahoo mail from the very beginning was to fork over all users email to the govt?

A: Of course fool. Our email service was "free" for a reason.

I liked Yahoo Answers like 5 years ago and waited for Yahoo! to make the community better and easier to access. But too late. Reddit is where it's at.

Why do so many people download all these different apps for every website they visit, rather than just use the browser?
