"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.)

In this version we have ramped up for election 2016 with polls surrounding politics, the issues our candidates are talking about, as well as our latest feature which allows you to debate about the actual candidates! Come share your anonymous thoughts-- election 2016 is just around the corner! If you're not into politics, we have plenty of polls about other topics-- sandwiches, murder, puppies, relationships, the NBA Finals, and more! (What- we have a lot of interests!)

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? What about your thoughts on if Hillary will win the 2016 election? 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, election 2016, news-- or anything else your brain can think of!

We challenge you to question everything!

Social Media’s Wild West

Sure, there are some rough edges around the interface. Yepp, there are some rude ppl who couldn’t care less about polite discourse. No doubt, you’ll run into some repetition, poorly worded polls, slanted and ambiguous answers.

Of course, you’ll also find your poll respondents demographics across gender, wage, location, and political profiles (all free btw). You’ll have your opinions tested along with your understanding of why you believe what you believe. Freedom to express yourself, right or left, globe or flat, gay or straight, love or hate, without platform bias, meddling, or censorship.

Personally, I would bump my rating up to 5⭐️s if could make polls with more than two answer choices or a none-of-the-above answer choice on other ppls polls.

p.s. read the negative reviews, and you’ll find a pack of snowflakes who are crying about the platform not providing them with a “safe-place” by slanting the conversation in their favor or protecting them from ppl with strong opinions different from their own.

p.s.s. If you’re a snowflake, right or left, don’t bother downloading this app, you’ll hate it, like everything else that challenges your worldview.

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!

Show All States NOT WORKING 😡

I’m peeved that SHOW ALL STATES has STOPPED WORKING. I like to see which parts of the country feel a certain way.

Saying that. I do really enjoy the diversity of serious questions mixed with casual or even silly ones. What fun!!!

I really like the idea of a comment section. One reviewer complained about the comments leaning more conservative, but you don't have to view, or participate in the comments unless you want, ... and I find as many liberal comments as conservative.
