    "I was looking for a service that allowed me to do and host surveys. SurveyMonkey serves as an alright tool for doing so. Because most of the premium features are found on other survey outlets, SurveyMonkey wasn't great for me because I needed those features. "

    "Show of hands is way more about polls and such, than full fledged surveys, but I guess a poll can be a survey. A simple app with a very simple premise, take polls and see what information is bestowed upon you by those who have been presented their options."

    "I recently wanted to setup a survey for a project I was working on when I found this app called Votter: The Social Voting App on the Google Play store. I've been messing around with it for awhile now and it seems to do everything I needed to create a few brief surveys on the fly. You can create custom surveys quite quickly and easily to help get feedback on anything you wish to survey people about. It's not without its issues but I found it to be "good enough" for the most part and I'd recommend it if you're looking for an easy-to-use survey creating tool."

    "I conduct a lot of customer surveys through my workplace and Pollar has been, by far, the best resource I've found for doing surveys. Data is wonderful, the process is clear and easy to use, from both the creators standpoint and the end users' experience. Definitely gets me more answers than the old survey software I used to use. "
