What can you use the app for?

Qhub lets users create their own, professional looking question and answer area to go with a website or application. Qhub integrates with Facebook and Twitter so users can bring their answers to social networks. A moderator control panel gives the user control so they can approve or delete entries or make edits as necessary. Filters are included so users can catch questionable submissions before they appear on their Q&A page. Along with post filters, language filters are also available so users can prevent abusive language issues. Each member is listed in the member management area and can be easily promoted to administrator or blocked. Privacy options allow the user to control who can join, view and contribute to a Qhub site. Additional features include built in spell check and collaborative community tools.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Qhub was founded by Tim O’Shea and Christopher Lee in 2010. The website has enjoyed positive attention from users because of its economical cost and highly useful functionality. Users have discovered that they can put together a professional question and answer area for their website easily using Qhub. The site is currently a popular choice for website owners as well as others who want to build an effective, user friendly Q&A page.

What are the differences to other apps?

The question and answer page is a very popular item today. Many applications allow users to create their own Q&A pages, however not all offer the same amount of control as Qhub. Users can build an attractive question and answer area that allows them to keep track of all content posted on it. The user can delete, edit or approve posts before they are published for public viewing. Users can also set privacy controls to determine who can see their questions and answers.
