DESCRIPTION
*********************
Show of Hands is an easy-to-use real-time ANONYMOUS polling application for the Android, iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad.

Poll topics include politics, ethics, pop-culture, sports, parenting, health, humor...whatever seems interesting. Two or three new questions are added daily, and make for great dinner table discussion topics! I do my best to keep poll questions unbiased, and don't use any of the info for commercial purposes. I'm not a faceless mega-corp...just a dude who runs this little home-grown polling service as a public service, a personal hobby, and a way to settle arguments with my wife.

CURRENT VOTER DEMOGRAPHICS
*********************
Our goal is to have as balanced a group of voters as we can muster. We are also 100% transparent with the breakdown of voter demographics with every single poll. Show of Hands voters are currently self-reporting to be in the following groups:

~ 61% male
~ 39% female

~ 40% republican
~ 35% democrat
~ 25% independent

If you are one of the under-represented groups, please please please download Show of Hands and weigh in!

POLL VOTING AND VIEWING:
*********************
After answering each a/b 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!

OTHER FEATURES
*********************
Facebook integration? poll suggestions from you? contact info for your beloved representatives in Congress? User commenting? Check, check, check, and check.

PRIVACY
*********************
Last but not least: I know that many people have legit concerns about privacy and the potential abuse of their personal data. Please keep in mind though, I have no idea who SoH users are, other than that they are significantly better looking and smarter than the general population. Registering and voting through Show of Hands happens without the collection any personally identifiable information - not even e-mail address - so your profile and voting data is not traceable to you. Also, all SoH voting data is being used for nothing other than to show you aggregate poll results. I don't use it to drive creepy personalized advertisements, sell it to Homeland Security, or print it up and knit a sweater for my dog with it.

    Missing some stuff that the apple version has. Uses too much CPU. Clicking a comment response in your notifications doesn't send you to the comment. Still a fun app no matter what, though.

    The owner doesn't care about their buyers, and it keeps crashing every time I try to look at my pols to see what people have said about them. Secondly the add at the very bottom of the screen is in the perfect spot to be in the way.

    Polling data with great discussions, post your own polls, or quietly answer others'. By far my most used app.

    I keep disabling notifications for this app but somehow, EVERY night it goes off in the middle of the night showing my daily top 10 matches or something. Really? I don't care about what I match with and i certainly don't care at 3am.
