ooloo - The Human Siri!

So today I stumbled upon ooloo. Now you might be thinking what is ooloo...just think of it as the human version of Siri. Ask ooloo a question 24 hours a day 365 days a year and a human will answer your question!

ooloo works by using the iPhone microphone to record a short question, that it uploads (along with tags of your choice) and then a real human will send you a reply. It must be noted this is not as fast as it's artificial counterpart and my testing reveals that it takes around a few minutes to get a response but this is still impressive.

Once using this app I find myself with one important question...why? ooloo is a free app to download from the App Store and there is no advertising so what is in it for the developer? The app is in its very infant stages and I would imagine that when this gets more popular that ooloo will not have enough staffing to answer all the requests in a timely manner.

This is an interesting concept and I wonder if they will open this up to the general public too to respond to questions.

To try this just search for ooloo on the App Store.
