The Jelly App, Have you heard of it? No, well now you will have. Jelly is a new app and was launched beginning of January of this year. So now what is it? Jelly is a new way to search on the internet by using your network and your extended network and it is easy to use.
You take a picture of what something you don’t know what it is, post it on Jelly and your friends and their friends (Jelly works with your existing social networks) can (hopefully) give you an anwer. You can crop, reframe, zoom, and draw on your images to get more specific. Check the video below to get an introduction to Jelly.
I have been using it since the launch and, to honest, it is actually fun to use. Sometime you get the stangest things and you actually pick up on things too. People tend not to just take pics of things they want to know wht it is, but they also ask questions like “What’s the best programmable robot for little kids. Something easy and educational.” Questions like these do get a lot response and therein lies the fun and social aspect of the App. People like helping people, the Pay it Forward idea so to speak. I say Jelly it forward.
So Google, eat your heart out, it’s Jelly time.
The Jelly App is available for iPhone and Android.
