Show of Hands: Ask & Answer Polls, Politics & More

By Tony Bacos

"Addicted! It's the only app I constantly use."
"An absolute must-have for anyone who's interested in ANYTHING!"
"Great conversation starter!"
"New favorite!"
"This app is the best free one I've downloaded."
"Great app to debate politics!"

Show of Hands is an easy-to-use real-time ANONYMOUS polling app. Over 250 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 app 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, fans, classmates, family members, and 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, news...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.

Customer Reviews

Amazing app. Think you're smart? Try it!

You can have debates on; social, political or philosophical events or ideas or even just basic day to day questions, also, simply give input through answering polls and seeing where many Americas stands through the results, or even ask questions yourself.

I think it's safe to say that the average individual on here has an above average IQ, which makes things entertaining and thought provoking.

It's basically an interactive platform where you can stay entertained while learning.

My People on My App

I know my title might be confusing to someone who hasn't tried this App. The best review I can give to an App, out of all the Apps I have used, goes to SOH. Here it is: I have used this App on every device I own, everyday, since March 2011. I can't say that about any other App. There isn't even another App that comes close to being around that long and used as much by me. If you're reading this and you have an App that has entertained you for longer I'd like to know about it.

Amazing App!

I LOVE Show of Hands! Everyday I look forward to whipping out my iPhone and seeing what current events, political debates and religious issues are being discussed around the country.
There are so many different stats to compare; age, gender, income, political position on the spectrum and many others that give you a better idea of the kinds of people you agree (or disagree) with in our society.
When I want to know what opinions and standpoints are trending, I use Show of Hands!
