What can you use the app for?

AddPoll is an online survey, form and poll generator that helps users build what they need with minimal tech knowledge. The application simplifies the process while giving the user numerous features and customization options. Users can create styles, which are saved and used as templates so each new poll or form doesn’t have to be redesigned. Captcha code and email voting protection help the user filter responses so they are receiving data from the sources they are seeking. Participants can be invited by email, with email group options that make it easier to manage invitations. The user can also apply a custom domain and branding. Detailed reports break down response data so the user can apply it effectively and efficiently.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

AddPoll continues to offer an enticing array of features and poll building tools to its users. The website has a lot to offer, but hasn’t received significant notoriety on the web. This is an area with a lot of competition, so that could make it tough for AddPoll to earn as much attention as it should. The service is very appealing for just about any user, from the causal individual to the group or organization.

What are the differences to other apps?

AddPoll offers users pretty much everything they could want in a survey or form builder. The application has a very nice visual style and it gives the user more creative freedom without losing the professional appearance that makes its site so appealing. Users can customize the look of their polls, save templates and apply custom domains and branding. The service also comes with IP banning capabilities and Captcha voting protection.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

AddPoll’s design makes it very user friendly, even for those with little to no experience building online polls. The website has adopted a calm blue color scheme, much like other professional applications. The interface includes a lot of white space and large, prominent headers with orange buttons that are difficult to miss. The user isn’t assaulted by clutter or advertisements, just the tools they need to accomplish their task.

How does the registration process work?

New users can click one of the orange “Sign Up for Free” buttons found along the right side of the AddPoll homepage to begin account creation. The form on the next page asks for a username, email address, password and Captcha code entry. Four colorful buttons are available across the top of the form that invites the user to sign up with their Facebook, Twitter, Google or Yahoo account instead. The user is automatically logged in after submitting the form or singing in with their third party account.

AddPoll comes in three packages. The first is a free account that allows unlimited monthly poll votes, unlimited questions per survey, up to 10 MBs of storage space, up to 250 survey and form responses per month, one additional user account, custom domain option, custom branding, data export capability, sharing tools, detailed report access and a mobile-friendly design.
