Does Answer Underground put an on-line, global study group into your pocket? Maybe. Their smart phone application hooks you up through Facebook with special groups to chat and get answers to your homework questions. Or you can provide an answer to someone else’s question. It’s like twitter for your Biology class.

While tools like OpenStudy solve this with a rating system (you vote on the answers you receive), Answer Underground uses the old-fashioned method. You only invite people you actually know in person to join your group. Like the people in your class. Or friends you know who took the class last year.
