The Solution to most First World Problems
We’ve all been there before. We try to escape from our daily routines by going to parties, dinners and social mixers hoping to meet new people or to spark a connection but somehow end up feeling more alone than we were at home.
So we crawl into the arms of our smartphones and scroll away on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
It’s a little sad.. but very much true. Social Media has taken the Social out of life.
For a while, I accepted this and figured times were just changing; I mean, I don’t really care THAT MUCH that some kids will never get to ride a bike or play with barbies, because selfishly I know that I did, and well thats that, until I discovered an app that changed everything. The app is called “Zip – The Question Answer App” and it’s a little addicting.
Press play to see why

As you might have guessed by reading the name of the app, the app allows you to ask and answer questions, in a very fun, trivia crack-ish way. Please note this isn’t a snoozefest like yahoo answers or Quora.
Asking Questions: If you want to ask a question on the app you must keep your question short and opinion based, set a time limit and provide 2 opposing answers. After putting your question in the app, the question is then pushed to users across the country to answer and weigh in on.
Answering Questions: (Our Favorite Part) This is where things get seriously addicting.
When you sign up for the app you get to choose the topics you want to see questions from along with the age range of users you feel comfortable answering questions from. That means, you won’t be seeing boring gardening questions or lame questions from way older or way younger people if you don’t want to.
Unlike Yahoo Answers, voicing your option does not require much brain power or typing – all you have to do to answer questions is tap or swipe on the answer you agree the most with.
Then the fun begins.. After each question you answer, you get fun stats on how the users in the app have voted, letting you know whether you are completely wrong and the world hates you or if everyone thinks like you.
And.. PS. All activity on Zip is 100% Anonymous, so you know people are being honest when they answer questions on there.
Why Zip is our new best friend:
- It Solves arguments: That’s right, no more heated debates about whether or not cats are better than dogs!
- It Sparks conversation: Trust me, you will be screaming at your phone while answering questions..
- It helps you get answers to those questions you are a little too embarrassed to ask your friends or post publicly online. You know what I am talking about
- It helps you keep up with trending topics.. anything from sad news, to happy news, Trump, the Kardashians.. it’s on there!
- It keeps you entertained….. for hours
