"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!

User (Buyer) Beware

This app is chock full of right-wing Religious extremists that would rather people at the border die than do their Christian duty to love and help people. They also lick the great Cheeto's backside like it's Jesus'. That being said, it's an excellent place to test yourself if you need to feel better about living in reality and seeing a bunch of trolls flounder because they can't even make good arguments if at all.

My only improvement advice (that would make me change my rating to a 5/5) is that the "People you match with" feature is still kinda broken, and it would be great to have an option to at least add titles to photo polls so people new exactly what they were voting toward before having to check the comments (which they can only do after voting). Also might not be a bad idea to have an "edit once" feature for the polls just in case you make a typo and only catch it once it's published - or submit an edit report that shows what you want corrected so just typos are fixed and whole polls aren't changed just for shenanigans.

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!

Social Media’s Wild West

Sure, there are some rough edges around the interface. Yepp, there are some rude ppl who couldn’t care less about polite discourse. No doubt, you’ll run into some repetition, poorly worded polls, slanted and ambiguous answers.

Of course, you’ll also find your poll respondents demographics across gender, wage, location, and political profiles (all free btw). You’ll have your opinions tested along with your understanding of why you believe what you believe. Freedom to express yourself, right or left, globe or flat, gay or straight, love or hate, without platform bias, meddling, or censorship.

Personally, I would bump my rating up to 5⭐️s if could make polls with more than two answer choices or a none-of-the-above answer choice on other ppls polls.

p.s. read the negative reviews, and you’ll find a pack of snowflakes who are crying about the platform not providing them with a “safe-place” by slanting the conversation in their favor or protecting them from ppl with strong opinions different from their own.

p.s.s. If you’re a snowflake, right or left, don’t bother downloading this app, you’ll hate it, like everything else that challenges your worldview.
