The iPad app (not the service) is extremely poor. 2/5
This app doesn’t adhere to standards of productivity/presenting apps; in fact, it’s less useful than just going to pollen.com on your mobile device. For example, it doesn’t support Split View, Slide Over, or any other iPad multitasking features that have existed in iOS for years. It also lacks a “presenter” view, where projecting to an Apple TV or other external display hides other features of the UI (such as the status bar and notifications). Again, something that many apps offer. So, what you’re left with is a giant iPhone app with distinguishing features whatsoever.
If you’re looking to use PollEverywhere, I recommend using Safari until the app developers get their act together.
Professor Peter Adler 5/5
By MA Prof Peter
I love PollEverywhere!
I use it to grade participation (1 point for doing and uploading the homework; one point for attending class; and one point for speaking in class). No more paper and I can work up everyone’s participation score in 1-2 hours for each half of the semester.
Polls work great for exams and there is automatic grading for multiple choice questions. I show everyone’s answers anonymously by student ID and the correct answer.
Live polling, at random and in PowerPoint, also gets everyone in the class involved, and it is fun to see live results change, such as how students rank the case studies we use. Anonymous polls are useful too.
Sign up 1/5
I can’t sign up for this app
This was the top rated iOS chat app.
Wasn’t intuitive to download.
Make it easy?
Great idea, and there’s not a great competitor!
For friends that aren't doing twitter polls, you have a window! Make a product to sell to apple.
Stable and reliable 5/5
We use PE every day, love it
Sliced Bread 5/5
Greatest thing since sliced bread
Worthless App 1/5
There is no way to sign up for the app and you have to log in to do anything. They could have saved their time and money but simply not making an application at all!
Recent fixes address most issues 5/5
If you read reviews from over a few months ago, almost all those issues were addressed.
Love the product and the App! Keep me polling and I’m happy.
Useless app 1/5
By Theta Panda
After 19 failed attempts between my computer and iPhone I have given up trying to get this to work. It is useless
App does not work properly 1/5
NCAA national champs 5/5
Love the Tar Heel color scheme poll everywhere knows what's up
No option to register in Ap 1/5
There's no option for new or first time users to register on the Ap
Can't create an act on app 1/5
Well, no obvious way to create an account nor does it have a link to create one on a mobile site. If I wanted to use a browser, WHY GET THE APP?
I'd give it a zero star if I could.
By mixmaster Remington
I use this for my physics class at SMU and it's great!
Needs horizontal view 1/5
I have no idea why this doesn't have the ability to view in landscape.
Needs Horizontal View 3/5
If you are presenting with Keynote, would be nice to be able to switch to this app and use horizontal view. Better yet, would be nice to be able to integrate the polls in keynote for iOS.
The horizontal view doesn't work anymore :(
Horrible - waste of class time and university money 1/5
By Dr Psicoloco
My university purchased a premium account for all of us in my university... And let me tell you that was a waste of money. Since the beginning I've had issues. I've switched to teaching on my iPad and they haven't figured out a simple constant bug, how to keep the text on the slide. The text on the poll slides off to the right for no apparent reason. So you literally cannot see your question or the student responses.
I cannot log in 1/5
This app looks very very sophisticated. However it will not allow thy user to create thy account using this app.
live love tech and eng 5/5
i had to delete storage on my phone because Ms . Siders made me download this app
Coach lane 4/5
By waze up$
Coach lane forced me to download this
By Berry Dr Cool
I am writing this review from the perspective of a teacher who is using wanting to use this almost exclusively for presenting from my iPad. No offense, but unless this app has the same display as the online version or the powerpoint add-in, there is really no point to it. It does not display the text number, the timer, and the clear responses features in presentation mode. If these features were added I would use this app all the time. Safari doesn't do a very good job displaying the Poll Everywhere website so I can hardly use my iPad for that either. Would really use your incredible polling services more often if you made these changes to the app. Thanks!

Sign up BLUNDER 1/5
If you miss the initial sign up for Username & Password at the beginning then you can't get in at all cause it no longer prompts to create a UN &/or PW... O_o
Easy for class 5/5
Easy way to respond to professor's polls in class.
Terrible Layout 2/5
The concept of Poll Everywhere is good, but if we're talking about this app specifically, the layout of it is terrible. It's confusing. I think it would better benefit users if there were sections/folders for each number you answer to. I have use this app for multiple classes and all of my answers are just thrown together on the side bar and its difficult to sort through them.
It works, but it's slow. I have missed polls in my class waiting for this app to load.
Worst app ever
Great Service, App Needs Work 3/5
App needs to run significantly faster - load is particularly painful. Copy/paste and some improved UI would also be useful.
Generally, I love the service. This is a great product generally - app just needs some work.
Crash crash crash would give it a 1 star if I could
Great app but missing key item 4/5
The app is great functionally. One BIG issue I see though is why not show to text to number as well as the URL? Each poll generates a unique text XXXXX to 22333. Why not include this number in the app?
Nice but needs copy/paste please! 3/5
I love this idea. Trying to use this in conjunction with GroupMe to get quick input from a group of 5 people I work with regularly. The mobile app is fairly useless without the ability to create a poll and quickly cut/paste it into the group chat app. You already show the link you just need to make it able to be copied in iOS.
Great for participation 5/5
By Matt Diebolt
This app makes it quick and easy for me to respond to polls.
Thank you Poll Everywhere! 5/5
Thanks for finally giving us an App! You guys rock!
