A group of Tulsa investors have launched AskMeTellMe, a national iPhone application born out of frustrations with Google and other Internet search engines. The new app, which is driven by each user’s individual social network, brings the human element back to decision making in today’s internet-dominated world, according to its developers.
“Who are you going to trust to find a good babysitter — Google or your friends?” says Toby Biolchini, who along with several other Tulsans created the iPhone app that’s free online at the Apple App Store.
To use the app, download AskMeTellMe for free. The app then prompts users to link to their Facebook and Twitter accounts and users can then simultaneously ask questions to both networks. AskMeTellMe pushes all answers directly to the app on the user’s iPhone, eliminating the need to check both profiles and wade through photos and status updates. You can now ask all of the people you know and trust for answers that Google doesn’t know, Biolochini says.
