In need of someone to help you out of a situation, but you would rather not involve your friends? Do you want some advice from a stranger who can be more objective because he or she isn't your parent? Sensay is a newly opened service that can help you with that. This application lets you voice your concern, and then it finds the person best suited to help you out and puts the two of you in contact. At the moment, the service is only available as a Web app, but Android and iOS versions are in development and will soon become available on Google Play Store and Apple Store.
The way this works is pretty simple: you type your problem ("What's the best place to buy a PC in Boston?') and your phone number into the application, and Sensay will put you in direct contact with those who are not willing to help but have some kind of knowledge about your problem. The service can help you easily get advice from people of different professions and passions, such as stylists, match-makers, shoppers, architects, animal lovers, parents, etc. And, of course, the people who are connected are kept anonymous by the application so there's no need to worry about your personal safety.
According to the company, the users will rate each other thus helping the sensays get paid in virtual currency. Furthermore, the service plans on creating revenues from offering "professional Sensays" (whatever that means) which would be paid in real currency as opposed to virtual one. There are also talks about renting referral links, but at the moment these are all just concepts, and we don't yet have all the details.
I'm very curios to find out how Sensay plans to weed out the trolls and the people engaged in some obscure practices, but I guess they will first have to deal with this problem and then find the right solution.
