"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.)

We're currently ramping up for election 2016 with polls surrounding politics and the issues our candidates are talking about. 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!

The most used app on my iPhone. With the ability to discuss polls and get to know other users, this replaced Facebook as my favorite social networking app. The active community, barring the few bad apples that can't be avoided, is really excellent. If you participate, it's very easy to get followers too. I was up to 300 followers within my first three months.

The polls are diverse, from the political, to the philosophical, to the whimsical. I bought the full version within a few days of downloading it mainly to support the creators of the app and the app itself, that's how much I liked it! That said, I also enjoy the added features I get with the full version too and think they're well worth it.

I highly recommend this app, especially for anyone whose into politics, but even for those who aren't as well.

Love it, but here's a head up

This app is absolutely wonderful, however, like any good debating all you are bound to run into trolls and harassers. You can ignore and report users who are not offering a stimulating conversation but rather harassment, but for some users that's not enough because very rarely does blocking happen and you can't directly contact SOH to report specific issues/threats/grief ect. Some of the most notorious harassers on SOH include logicman81, Congressman, Think, and Cowboy. Also note that harassment comes from all over the political spectrum, so keep a look out and try not to feed these trolls so the rest of us can have a good discussion and debate :) Have fun and welcome to Show of Hands!

The best it has ever been.

I have been using Show of Hands since January of 2011. Since that time, the app has gone through a myriad of changes. The five stars and title refer to the actual app, disregarding the community. The app'a stability, functionality, and overall usability are better than ever before.

That being said, the community receives a 1-star, or 2-star, at best. I have, however, had the great privilege of meeting a number of people through the app.

I would still recommend this app to anyone that's interested in sharing their thoughts and reading what others have to offer.
