Polling On The Go

Posted by at 1:38 pm on August 25, 2008

One of the loves people have with the Internet is polling.  They will even talk about the results, when the poll is not done in a  scientific  manner.  Ok, we do non-scientific polling here at Test ToT.  Why miss out on the fun?

Now you can have the joy of voting on the go the with your iPhone or iTouch thanks to the folks at  InfoMedia in Loveland, Colorado. iVote Mobile, a free application developed by InfoMedia Inc. is now available in the iTunes App Store.

When asked “Who would you vote for in the US Presidental Election,” users were able to choose from Barack Obama, John McCain, Bob Barr and Ralph Nader.  Apple iPhone users revealed an Obama-heavy bias as hundreds of people sought to make their opinion known via  iVote Mobile.  Anyone shocked?  I didn’t think so. I think Rush Limbaugh owns an iPhone along with his Macs.

But it isn’t just a one-way street, users are encouraged to submit questions of their own for possible inclusion by clicking the “iAsk” button within the application or filling out the form on the  iVote Mobile web site.

Using the location awareness system built into the iPhone, iVote Mobile is able to relate poll data and subsequent discussions to geographic location on a global, national, regional and local basis. When taking the entire world’s opinion into consideration, iVote users put Obama ahead by 42 points. And while Oklahoma users still have McCain with a slight majority, swing states such as Colorado and Florida remain very close.

“The iPhone has opened up new opportunities to engage public opinion and assimilate data faster than ever before.” says InfoMedia, Inc. CEO  Joel Comm. “With iVote Mobile, we are now able to survey the world and receive feedback as quickly as we are able to post questions.” Comm continues, “iVote Mobile presents questions on a number of topics related to politics, current events, entertainment, sports and lifestyle, providing all users with an opportunity to share their opinion and interact with other users.”

iVote Mobile appeared on the iTunes App Store on August 20th and is quickly moving up the popularity charts in the social networking category.
