Q&A app Jelly today updated its iOS app with new tools for posing and explaining problems.

In version 1.1, you can now create a new question using a map and a specific location. When you tap the compose icon, you’ll see a new mapping option alongside the existing camera tool. Here, you can choose your current location, search for a specific place, or swipe around the Google Maps interface and drop a pin in the center of the screen.

Like the previous version, you can then write a note and add a URL if necessary. When you respond to someone else’s question, you’ll see a new map icon alongside the annotation and link options. This could prove to be a valuable tool if you’re looking for directions or something to do.


If you’re not much of a photographer, the update also makes it easier to pull photos straight from Google Images. Just type in what you’re looking for and Jelly will automatically offer a set of pictures that match your query.

Jelly got a ton of coverage when it launched earlier this year, mainly due to the involvement of Twitter founder Biz Stone, but it remains to be seen whether Jelly can maintain and grow its user base.
