Quora is a popular community-organized Q&A website. But, did you know there Quora also has an iPhone app with an interesting feature tweak? The free Quora iPhone app lets you ask questions, contribute answers and browse topics as you can on Quora’s desktop website. And, the tweak? Quora for iPhone has a Nearby icon that, when tapped, displays questions and answers related to topics in your general area. You can ask for example, where are the best places to have breakfast in the area. Or, ask about interesting places to visit based on specific interests.
