"Yay or nay?"


Show of Hands Polls & Politics is a popular, easy-to-use polling app that allows you to pick the brain of many different users around the world at once. Polls show up in a seemingly never-ending feed, prompting your fast feedback on whether or not you talk with your hands, or if you think five-year-olds should be allowed to carry handguns. Check out the results in great detail, broken down by demographics like gender, age, education, religion, and location (note that the audience seems to be heavily US-based). Submit your own polls and track their results.


This is the most politically oriented polling app I've come across, and it manages to bridge the gap between entertainment and seriously prompts for consideration. The comments section on each question appear by and large to be troll-free - let's keep it that way.


The design is outdated. If it were a more polished material design, the experience of using the app would overall be much smoother. I can envision a card-swiping yes-no system that would appeal much more to my sense of pleasing UI.
