Formvote: Poll app for Android for easily creating polls your friends can vote in

August 10, 2012

Everyday, we are faced with a lot of choices. We need to choose what to wear, what to eat for lunch, where to go next, and all other choices that need to be made. When faced with a lot of choices, it’s very difficult to make up your mind and choose the best option. The task would be easier if we knew the ideas of our friends and relatives and use those as basis in making your choice. But, thanks to Formvote, you can now easily ask the opinion of others and easily choose the best option.

You can ask the public which dress you should wear to your ball or which restaurant you should treat your friends to on a Friday night. What’s even better is that the official Formvote app is now available on your Android devices. You can now post your question and ask for help from your friends while on the go.

Before throwing questions to your friends, you will need to log-in to your Formvote account. If you haven’t created one, you can create a new account via the app. Just tap the Sign Up button. Make sure you also have an active Internet connection to create an account and to be able to use the app.

Once you have logged in to your Formvote account, you will be directed to the app’s main interface. Here you can see the public posts of Formvote users. You can scroll through the post feed and scan various posts from Formvote users. Along with every post, you can also find choices for you to choose from. To make a choice, just tap on the chosen choice and your vote will be automatically added. Take note that you can only choose one choice for every post so you need to choose carefully. You can also find the buttons below the screen to filter public posts or the posts made by your friends.

You can also start making your own posts within the app. To create your post, just tap the Formvote icon in the upper-right portion of the screen. There you will be allowed to post your own question and identify the number of choices for that question. You can even add a picture to your own post or attach an individual picture to the choices. Once done, you can post your question to Formvote and see how the people will answer. You won’t be allowed to vote on your own post. Only other Formvote users will be allowed to do so. You can also see the number of votes beside each choice.

You can also find buttons on top of the screen. The buttons above will allow you to view friend invites, read your messages, check for current notifications, and view your favorite posts. Tapping your profile picture in the upper-left portion of the screen will allow you to access your profile page and the settings menu. Your profile page will let you view your current posts within the app. Accessing the settings menu will also allow you to change your credentials such as your personal information and password.

You also don’t need to worry about ads because I didn’t find one while using this app. In my testing, the app’s performance was good and it ran smoothly. I did, however, face a force close error when attaching my profile pics on the app. Nevertheless, the app worked well and was able to publish my Formvote posts.

The Formvote app can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store. What do you think of the Formvote app? Let us know in the comments.
