Sometimes, all you need is a good advice to face a problem. Now suppose you’re having problems with your girlfriend. This is a personal problem that you can’t post on Facebook and expect some life-saving comments. But everybody has some close friends and parents are always considered the best friends ready to help you anytime. But the actual problem is that you hesitate asking them for a favour and that’s how the problem starts getting bigger and bigger. You feel shy and start presuming how they will react on your query without even giving it a try. But what if you could ask anybody for a helping hand without revealing your identity by wearing a mask or hiding in shadows? I’m not asking you to work like Batman but it’s always good to look for a solution without getting into the problem. Don’t you think so?


If you think so, then here we have the latest iOS app called Need that has been developed by Need Inc. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 6.0 or any later version of the OS. This app has also been optimized for iPhone 5.

Need is providing you a platform to enter into a world of No-Identity. You simply enter as an anonymous person who’s looking for an answer to his problem. Just post your problem and anybody interested will answer to your query. If you like his/her answer, you can send him/her a Thank You card. So the concept is very simple and effective. No matter how complex, personal or weird your problem is, don’t hesitate asking it. People may laugh but there will be some sincere and honest answers as well. In fact, this app is dedicated to help others out and therefore you won’t find trash comments like YouTube. This app belongs to its community and if you’re asking a question today, you might answer one tomorrow as well. It’s give-and-take for everybody.


It’s as easy to answer with Need as it is to ask. You can add images and website links in your answer as well if needed. You don’t know who has asked the question but you can see his/her connection with you. If he’s a friend of your friend, you’ll know it but not more than that. Every user gets an Emoji avatar for each of his/her conversation. But if the other person seems reliable to you, you can replace it with your selfie.

Overall, Need is the perfect way to open yourself to the world. Though you’re always behind the curtains, at least the atmosphere is so open and cool that even the most complex problems can be handled with ease. There are no strings attached! So feel free to download it and start exploring. The app is available for free in the App Store.

Pros: intuitive UI; post questions without revealing your identity; answer with images and embedded web links; send Thank You cards; free.

Cons: none.

I will give this app 4.5 out of 5 stars.
