Ratings and Reviews
Great idea, needs updates
Have been hoping iMessage created polls and am glad that it finally came to fruition, however, it seems that some updates are needed. First, i don’t believe notifications should be sent out every time someone votes. I think it would be more beneficial to have one notification sent when a poll is created a one when it has completed. Second, I think the process of voting is too lengthy, mainly because of the need to send the poll again as a message after voting. I love the idea, just think some optimization is required!
Developer Response ,
Hi Klaustradamus, thanks for your feedback! I understand the notifications can get noisy in large groups. Unfortunately that is not something we have control over. Apple controls the notifications and they are sent every time :/
As for the voting process, I completely agree! Having to tap send again after voting is annoying. This was a requirement of Apple when we launched, but fortunately they have updated the way it works and our new version (coming out soon!) will fix this so that voting takes less taps! Thanks for your review and your feedback!
Amazing App - Simplified Decision Making Instantly
Our fantasy football league has run into some issues in the past with determining dates, activities, and draft order. Recently, a member did not participate in a league activity and we immediately sought consensus from other league members for a decision. Polls for iMessage made this quick, easy and fun!
Thanks, Polls for iMessage!!!
Not a tool for market research
This app is for friends to use but I thought it had potential for market research. Unfortunately, the person receiving the poll has to have the app, too.
I also don’t like that you can’t open the app in its own window. It just loads to your keyboard with really vague instructions. Needs a tutorial start and some you can open and adjust settings. Now I’m gonna have to google how to remove it off my phone because it’s unclear.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
