Plickers lets you poll your class for free, without the need for student devices. Just give each student a card (a "paper clicker"), and use your iPhone/iPad to scan them to do instant checks-for-understanding, exit tickets, and impromptu polls.

Bug fixes and performance improvements
Not a teacher
I'm not actually a teacher, I'm a student. My Maths teacher, Mrs Witter used this once in class and we all loved it. After class i asked her for the name of the site and now I'm here. So I've used it a bit to create a few quizzes for a club i help run and it's been great so far.
I've found it easy and enjoyable to create the quizzes and it's helped a lot with boredom. Don't know what to do? I'll just go on my phone and create a few questions until something else comes up. It's a great use of my time and I'd recommend it to teachers and fellow students alike.
I use this most lessons
I've tried other apps and websites; this is the only one I've used for successive years. I use it at the start of most lessons as a quick test of knowledge. Sometimes it is checking the students have done the 'prep' homework, sometimes to revise some of the key facts or terminology from the previous lesson. Much quicker to set up than, say Socrative, and the reports are more useful. Highly recommended.
Everything is here for a killer app except the ability to share your ‘Plicks’ or view others. I see that the community of users have been asking for this for four years and have had no response, a great shame really. Once you’ve invested the time to create your quizzes it works really well, but it’s a classic case of reinventing the wheel multiple times within the community of users and even within a school dept.
C’mon developers pull your proverbial finger out and add this feature.
