Answers is one of those Mac apps I wish I’d had a few dozen years ago. Simply put, Answers is a Mac app which guides you through the tedious process of making help documents or FAQs; the kind of documents that are perfect for websites or standalone training documents.
Answers lets you setup the styles and organizational layout from beginning to end, complete with externally linked URLs if you need. If you need to integrate a help section or FAQ pages into a website, Answers also has a blank theme that can be customized to match the website.
A few themes are provided in Answers and more would be welcome (some third party themes are available), but esoteric design isn’t the objective– quick deployment of useful and ever-changing help documents and FAQs is. To that end Answers exports HTML, takes unlimited questions and categories, and features both a WYSIWYG editor and an HTML editor. The free version does not support PHP export or jQuery but both the pro and free version support classic anchor style, custom CSS and meta tag editing.
Other than customizations, Answers builds the code, including simple animations (the accordion style in use is common on the web). Don’t think of Answers as app that creates detailed manuals. There are many apps for that. Answers is especially adept at creating simple, straightforward, but highly useful help pages and FAQ pages which can be deployed on the web. Not bad for free, but it’s the pro version that has professional level features.
