Quora

The Good Quora for Android has an attractive interface and integrates well with native Android search and share functions.

The Bad The Add Question function is buried under the Search tool. There's no tablet-optimized version.

The Bottom Line While Quora for Android has its share of minor issues, it's still an impressive app that offers most of the functionality you need to engage with the Quora community while on the go.

Quora

The recently released Quora app for Android lets users engage with the popular question-and-answer platform while on the go. Different from a typical Google search or a Google Now query, a Quora question is posed directly to a large community of users for their personal feedback. Think of it like a Yahoo Answers forum, but with more of a focus on responses by professionals and experts in specific fields. There's even a sort of gaming element involved, which lets you earn and spend Quora credits based on your activity.

When it comes to the look and feel of the app, Quora for Android is impressive. The color scheme is inviting, and the navigation bar at the top offers smooth controls. To zip around, you can either use the tabs or swipe left and right between pages. And from your Home feed, you can arrange content by Top or Recent stories. There's also an ever-present Search button on the top-right corner, which puts new questions and answers just a quick tap away. Finally, there's a built-in widget for your Android Home screen, which offers quick access to top Quora answers. Unfortunately though, there are no customizable widget settings.

One thing worth noting is that Quora does not offer a tablet-optimized version of its Android app. This means your Galaxy Tab or Google Nexus 7 will just get a blown-up version of the phone app, which isn't terrible, but also isn't ideal.
