"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 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? 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, news-- or anything else your brain can think of!

We challenge you to question everything!

Lower quality over time

This app used to one of my favorites, and an excellent source of debatable questions to discuss with family friends. Trying to guess what % of respondents will say what is always a fun game to play. However, the app has slowly turned into just another social media platform. Many questions no longer have two actual answers, and are rather just "let's discuss THIS, are you participating or passing?" That's not what I come to this app for. And lately it is an endless, unavoidable stream of polls just comparing people's pet photos. I miss the consistent source of genuine this-or-that polls of different political and social topics; that's what made this app popular in the first place, and why I used to love it.

One of my favorite apps!! Have a few suggestions :)

First off, this app is pretty amazing! It’s very informative and helps answer my own random questions as well. It would be cool to get more users so the results could be even more accurate but even 2-3 thousand votes on something tells a lot. I use this app just about every day and have learned some cool stuff! Some updates I would love to see are the ability to delete or edit comments, and to be able to turn off notifications for a thread you comment on. I ask for that because of a recent situation where an argument was going on in a thread and I posted a neutral comment like “there’s no point in arguing this..” but now my notification page has been filled with their ongoing debate for almost a week. Also, the ability to filter language (swearing) I don’t want to see would be cool. Overall it’s one of the best and most underrated apps in the store, great work!

I enjoy this app regularly

I enjoy answering most of the questions posed and seeing how the answers break down by gender, age, political party, income, etc. It can be fascinating! I can also see which groups I am most like. Occasionally, there is a question I am not interested in, often actor-related, but usually they are relevant and/or fun. The wording of a few questions can be ambiguous, so I skip those or take the results with a grain of salt. It can be hard to ask a short and clear question on some topics and most people do a great job. This is one of the few entertainment apps that I have consistently used over the past several years since I first discovered it. I recommend it to any thoughtful and curious person.
