Jelly, the adorable question and answer app launched by Biz Stone in 2014, was basically the walking dead after it launched and eventually petered out. Today, Stone has announced it’s coming back.
The app a sort of search engine for answers, where you could ask any question and it would help you get the right details from real people, rather than dead webpages.
A new era of tech events has begun
We’re back in New York this November for the 4th edition of our growth-focused technology event.
Announced via Medium today, Stone says Jelly’s revival is an “un-pivot” after the team took a break and is currently in a closed beta, before it launches soon.
The team says the new version will launch on the Web as well as mobile this time around, and that it’ll work much like a search engine; just type in your question.
You can reserve your username ahead of the launch, though not many details were forthcoming about what is different this time around to help the app succeed.
The original version of Jelly was interesting, but failed to give people any reason to come back after a few days.
