This idea is not new, there are apps available providing help in homework online. However the ones I encountered has a much greater strengths:

1) This “god hotline” requires $, the apps I reviewed are free.

2) We are not sure who are the ones behind generating the answers, it could be one person or a small team. However the apps I reviewed allows anyone to contribute, check the answers posted and provide comments on how to improve the solutions. In a way the “god hotline” solutions may not be fool proof.

These ideas may start with a noble thought of helping students but it can be easily abused in 2 manners:

1) People using it as a source of quick cash by requesting money for solutions,

2) Parents or students rely on the help available to do the work for them instead of trying them out on their own.
