"Addicted! It's the only app I constantly use." -- Anonymous Show of Hander
Show of Hands is a smart and fun community polling platform for people who love burning questions! Answer new questions daily and see instant, real-time, anonymous results from fellow brilliant minds around the country. This information is broken down by age, religion, income, and more! (You can just think of us as your national level town hall.)

In this version we have ramped up for election 2016 with polls surrounding politics, the issues our candidates are talking about, as well as our latest feature which allows you to debate about the actual candidates! Come share your anonymous thoughts-- election 2016 is just around the corner! If you're not into politics, we have plenty of polls about other topics-- sandwiches, murder, puppies, relationships, the NBA Finals, and more! (What- we have a lot of interests!)

We have a work hard, play harder mentality in our question-asking: we ask the tough questions so that you can anonymously debate real world issues, and we ask the lighter questions because sometimes Mondays are just hard. We want you to think! Have you ever thought about if you would prefer to have wings or gills? What about your thoughts on if Hillary will win the 2016 election? Reach into the depths of your brains and have smart discussions about current events, national issues, global issues, and more. But don't forget to have fun! Nothing is off limits, and our community will help you level up your brain!

Do YOU have questions!? Have you ever been having drinks with friends-- or even just around the water cooler with coworkers-- and gotten their opinions and comments on something? Do you ever feel like their vote is just plain wrong?! (How could zombies NOT BE REAL?) Or not telling the whole truth!? (Please, everyone takes their phones into the bathroom.) Build an anonymous Show of Hands following and publish your own polls to test if your opinion is in the majority! Ask your own questions about politics, ethics, pop-culture, humor, sports, health, election 2016, news-- or anything else your brain can think of!

We challenge you to question everything!

One of my favorite apps!! Have a few suggestions :)

First off, this app is pretty amazing! It’s very informative and helps answer my own random questions as well. It would be cool to get more users so the results could be even more accurate but even 2-3 thousand votes on something tells a lot. I use this app just about every day and have learned some cool stuff! Some updates I would love to see are the ability to delete or edit comments, and to be able to turn off notifications for a thread you comment on. I ask for that because of a recent situation where an argument was going on in a thread and I posted a neutral comment like “there’s no point in arguing this..” but now my notification page has been filled with their ongoing debate for almost a week. Also, the ability to filter language (swearing) I don’t want to see would be cool. Overall it’s one of the best and most underrated apps in the store, great work!


Very Disappointed!

This app used to be fun and engaging, but the comments section has become dominated by right-wing-nutjobs and intolerant conservative "Christians".

Add to this a new set of Rules that includes the following:. You hereby grant to SOH a cost free, royalty-free, perpetual, non-exclusive, unrestricted, worldwide license to use without restriction, all messages, files, text, pictures, drawings, photographs, artwork, opinions, ideas, suggestions, and other materials, content and feedback that you upload, post or submit to the Site or App or send to use for display on the Site or App, or which you send to other users on the Site or App (collectively, "Submitted Content").

Unless you want to experience an echo-chamber of hatefulness, and potentially have your thoughts stolen and used for for someone else's profit: avoid this travesty like the plague.

Mental Workout

I really love this voting app! Serious to funny questions.

It's fun to vote my opinion, and to see how others vote on the same issue. The category breakdown of votes is superb! I used to like iCitizen polling, but it has changed its format into a MESS. This app, SOH, is wonderful.

I really enjoy the diversity of serious questions mixed with casual or even silly ones. What fun!!!

I really like the idea of a comment section. One reviewer complained about the comments leaning more conservative, but you don't have to view, or participate in the comments unless you want.
