ChaCha is a great online service which basically gives answers to anyone with a question. Users from all over the world sign on and ask questions to the service and one of the thousands of users who spend some of their time answering questions will attempt to answer it.

The service works really well though it is debatable how accurate the answers can be from time to time. The website has now released an app for Android phones so users can get their questions answered whenever and wherever they are. Unlike the site where other users will answer the question, ChaCha Droid attempts to answer your questions by pulling data from different areas on the web. For the most part this turns out to be an efficient way to get answers and I barely could count to 3 before the results came up. But too often I would get results completely outdated such as when I asked for weather information, it gave me a forecast from 3 months back.

This inconsistency makes for a very unpredictable app and because of this, I can't really recommend it. It worked great and was extremely snappy, but it didn't get enough of my questions correct and became a waste of time. The app is free in the Android Market, so try it out yourself and see.
