Show of Hands is an easy-to-use real-time ANONYMOUS polling tool. Over 100 million votes on poll questions have been featured in places like U.S. Congress, MIT, and national television, and you can now use the powerful SOH engine to ask your own questions. With it, you can get anonymous answers and have instant discussions with your own work teams, friends, fellow hobbyists or fans, classmates, family members, customers.

If you don't want to publish questions or follow others who do, you can use SOH the way it's always worked - just keep answering the 10(ish) public questions daily. Public poll topics include politics, ethics, pop-culture, sports, parenting, health, humor, religion...whatever seems interesting.

After answering each question, you will immediately see the current results of the poll question within your state and nationally, as well be able to view a "red/blue" national map displaying the leading result in every state in the country - just like election night! You can also filter poll results by gender, political party, age, or income range. Wanna know how men's opinion on a question differs from women's, or Republicans from Democrats, or rich folk from po' folk, or teenagers from boomers? Easy!

For those that want a little more power, we offer a subscription plan. For $25, you get the following features for 12 months:
- Ability to collect up to 500 votes per poll
- Audience Poll Targeting by demographic
- Over 30 extra stats on your poll results pages
- Weekly analysis of your voting trends
- No Ads

Last but not least: I know that many people have legitimate concerns about privacy and their personal data. Please keep in mind, SOH voting is anonymous. Registering and voting through Show of Hands doesn't even require name or email address and we will never share your voting history with anyone. It's ok to admit liking Justin Bieber - it can be your little secret forever.

Great app just missing...

I love this app however as a new user I can only vote on questions provided by SOH and under the "Hot" category I had less than 10 polls. When you ask a poll it only goes to your followers and I can imagine that taking a long time to acquire. The app updates every Sunday all your votes and I think there should be more ways to find polls. There should be a categories group for all users to post in. Also the "hot" polls that are user submitted should have a lot more polls so that way new users can acquire more polls with looking for followers without having to wait for Sunday to come with updates.

Great App!

This is an absolutely stellar app with a great community. Polls range from amusing to thought-provoking, and succeed in sparking a vibrant discussion on the issues of our day. The creator of the app is also closely involved with the community and very frequently joins in debates and discussions.

This is often the first app I open in the mornings, and the last one I check before bed.

If you're seeking a mentally-engaging app that is completely different from anything else you have already, you've just found it.


I usually don't take the time to rate apps, but this one deserves it. Answer questions, ranging from politics to daily life. You can follow people like you and even have a list of suggested people to follow that agree with you the most. See the results that other groups statistically answer, and write in the comments. Most of all, you can remain anonymous while you make best friends or meet people that give your debating skills a challenge. My advice: download and have fun
