When you find yourself with a group of friends trying to make a decision and it's hard to balance everyone's opinions, use VoteUp to quickly figure out how the whole group feels. Voters don't have to choose a favorite or rank their choices: they just honestly mark how much they like each option.
Create a poll with the options you're considering
Invite your friends by text message
While your friends are voting, add new options or new voters they suggest
Close the poll, share the results, and move on to whatever you're doing
When you're making decisions with friends, there's room for a wide range of feelings, and everyone's going to feel better when they know that the way they feel is being counted.
Collecting more detail about your friends' preferences doesn't just make them feel included: it also leads to results that maximize the happiness of the whole group.
That's why VoteUp uses expressive voting systems.
Sometimes you want a single "winner", but sometimes you just want to learn how your friends feel about a range of options. Since VoteUp asks participants to rate every option independently, it's great for brainstorming, for choosing multiple winners, or even just for popularity contests!
For an example, see how one user chose a logo for their business with some help from VoteUp.
