A little frustrating

So I’m using this for the first time with 3 other people and I’ve got 7 votes in a poll. What’s up with that? I checked and you can in fact vote more than once which defeats the purpose. Also, I can see what people vote for which also defeats the purpose of using an app rather than everyone just texting their answer. Everyone should only be allowed to vote once and the results should be a secret. Make it where you can only see the votes once it’s completed or until the poll owner says it’s complete. Another thing, I had two separate polls and one of the answers are the same in both. Whenever someone votes that answer in one poll the same vote is reflected in the second poll. Kind of a mess to deal with.

Edit: after reading the other comments I realized how useful voting on multiple options can be. But definitely should be an option.

Hi there! Thanks so much for your feedback! I'm sorry that you're frustrated with the app. Voting on multiple options was a highly requested feature but I understand it's not perfect for every case. In the upcoming version this will be a setting you can change. Regarding anonymous polls, that's a very good idea! I will consider it for the next update as well. For the issue with a vote on one option also counting on other polls with an option that has the same name, I'm very surprised by that, I haven't been able to reproduce it but I'll keep looking into this.

Feel free to reach me at jeff@pollsforimessage.com for any other issues or feedback. Input like yours is what will make this app great ❤️ Hope you have found the app to be useful 😊

Okay, but all the people you’re texting with need the app too

This app is great! I love it, and it is so easy in group chats.
Unless the other people in the chat don’t have this app. It is kind of frustrating to have to say, “hey! Why don’t you get this app when you can just text me your answers! Makes sense!” That is my only complaint though. I like that there is no limit to the number of options, and that it doesn’t have ads to make you want to upgrade.
Overall, pretty satisfied.

Hey thank you for your honest review and feedback, really appreciate it. I understand the frustration around everyone needing the app, but that is the only way apps can work. You need to download them to use them.

Getting everyone's input via text is messy and hard to keep track of. That's what I'm aiming to solve with this app.

One other option that may work better for you is a web based poll and you send a link so people don't need to download an app.

Hope that helps and thanks again for your input! Please know that low ratings bring down our rank and bring the paid or ad-covered apps to the top :/

Good but wish you could vote multiple times

I really like this app. I searched and searched for an app that would be good for making decisions in iMessage and this is definitely the best one I’ve found and used. It really does need an option when you can vote multiple times. I send polls out where I need to see who is showing up for a certain event and it stinks they can’t vote multiple times to show when they can attend. Otherwise, I think the interface is really easy and nice to look at. Just wish I could see who voted for what and wish it allowed for multiple votes. A setting for the person who created the poll would be best probably. I hope this app gets updated quick bc it would be soooo nice!! Would def be 5 ⭐️ instead of 4.
