Ratings and Reviews
Beautiful Polls, Bargain Price, Limited only by iMessages
Cute little polling app that lives inside iMessages. Provides a web-version for people without TinyPoll installed. A lot of value for a tiny price.
If you have family or close friends who are constantly making group decisions on simple questions like “Where should we go for lunch today?” or “Which of these movies do you want to see?”, then TinyPoll could work for you. :)
Most critical reviews *unfairly* blame the developer for a) how iMessages apps work, b) asking for a small subscription fee to run the service, c) not providing *all* the features for free, and d) not-obvious uninstall steps.
Sure, Apple should provide a more intuitive way to uninstall, but we should ding Apple for that, not the developer!
I noticed that after subscribing, I was given two weeks of free trial to see if it works or not. That’s not a money grab. That’s the developer caring enough to make sure I love the app before I’m actually charged.
Earlier reviews noted how people must install the app to get it to work. Sure, it works better when installed (one click), but now there is a web-based version fall-back that needs no install.
Thanks, Josh, for obviously putting a lot of time and effort into the app. I hope enough people “get it” to encourage you to keep working on it!
Deleting app. Defeats the purpose if everyone in your group thread have to download the app in order to vote. What’s the point when I could just ask my question straight out and have friends type their responses. I had high hopes and was completely let down. According to the FAQ on the app it said that version 1.1.0 allowed others to vote without downloading...well it’s the 26th of Aug. and that isn’t true. Oh and let’s not even get started on the 24hour wait time between each question, Ridiculous! Paying to use this app or to upgrade app is fine, however it’s useless and a waste of money if you CAN’T USE IT IF OTHERS DON’T HAVE THE APP!! I’m being generous by giving 2-Stars because I like the idea and purpose of app but this execution needs plenty of work, especially with demanding others to download in order to participate in a vote.
Requires All Participants Download the App
The app will not work at all unless every participant downloads it, a rather obnoxious requirement that ruins any potential use. All receive a link that says “Install the app to cast your vote!”
There is also a bug in the current version which freezes the messages app when you attempt to enter your name with the smart-keyboard.
For the record, I think the subscription service is entirely reasonable and inexpensive. I’ll probably even pay the $2 just to test this more. I’d certainly appreciate an easy polling option in messages but can’t rely on something that requires every participant download the same app.
The developer responded directly to my feedback and added a web input option. It works beautifully on Macs, but is still prompting users on iOS to install the app if they do not already have it installed.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the feedback. I agree it's a little frustrating to get people to install the app to vote, but I wanted to make it free and easy as possible to do so. Participants should be able to install it without even leaving the conversation, just by tapping on the message. Down the road I'd like to add voting via the web so anyone who doesn't want to install can still participate (including Android).
Would you be able to share some more details about the bug you're experiencing with entering your name? I'd love to investigate. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org
