Among some of the questions that can be shared through Gas are, for example, ‘who is the funniest person in the class?’, ‘who has the prettiest laugh’? or ‘who is the student you most admire?’.
Once users have chosen one of the four options offered by each of the questions, that person will receive a notification through the application to find out the result and which appears as the most voted.
For now, this app is only available for iPhone and iPad through the App Store for US users.
