App of the Week: Quora - The App That Answers All Your Questions

Quora is not only a questions and answers app, but it also feeds your social media addiction. The original service was created by two former Facebook employees, Adam D'Angelo and Charlie Cheever, in 2010. The app allows users to upvote or downvote answers to questions, suggest edits to answers and write blog posts and reviews. Users can then share their favorite content with their friends and followers on Twitter, Facebook, text message and email.

Quora also features a stat system where users can track how well their posts are being received, and it allows Quora members to follow other users they find interesting in the community.

Last Chance to Jailbreak, Apple Releases iOS 7.1 Beta 3

Apple released iOS 7.1 beta 3 to developers on Tuesday. According to p0sixspwn creator iH8sn0w, the new release does not break the evad3rs latest jailbreak, but an unofficial version of evasi0n7 was needed to jailbreak the new beta.

It is also a safe bet that Apple will patch evasi0n7 very soon, which means this could be the last chance users have to upgrade to iOS 7 and jailbreak their phones. Users still running iOS 6 will not be able to jailbreak once Apple closes the exploit, and there is a slim chance a new jailbreak will be released for any future versions of iOS 7.
