Quipol is a poll creator that lets users obtain the opinions of others through an elegant interface. The system utilizes a simple design. Each poll is presented inside a box with a thumbs up or thumbs down button at the bottom. The user can read the question inside the box (sometimes accompanied by a related image) then click the button that matches their opinion. Quipols include a wide variety of topics, with questions like “Should everyone attend college?,” “Would you permanently delete your Facebook profile?” and “Is Siri living up to your expectations?” already listed on the site. Users can create any question they want and see what a larger audience thinks about the issue or topic. Along with a thumbs up or down, user can also post a comment to go with their response to a poll.Show more screenshots »
Quipol appeared in 2011 to provide users with an easy way to obtain the opinions of a larger online audience. The application has not gone unnoticed. Sites like Killer Startups have mentioned it, comparing it to services like PollDaddy. The application provides a service that has been done time and time again, but does so with a modern twist through its attractive interface. The current version stays simple while providing users with a fun way to gather opinions.
Quipol stands out through its modern interface. There are already so many ways to create and use online polls. It is no small task to do something that stands out among other similar web applications. Quipol does it by presenting users with a very simple interface that keeps their poll in a small space without detracting from the overall appearance of the poll. Others can respond quickly and add a comment to go with their response.
The look of Quipol is what really makes the application turn heads. Each poll is featured inside a sleek box. The poll includes a question and an image related to it. Those responding can click on one of two round buttons at the bottom to show their positive or negative responses. The number of comments appears below the poll. The user can click the comments count to see what was said. Overall, Quipol has incorporated all the things a user might want out of a simple online poll in a modern, compact package.
A new user can join the Quipol community by clicking the green “Sign In or Sign Up” button in the upper, right hand corner of the page. The user can click the small “Sign Up Now” link above the login form to access the registration form. The registration form asks for a first and last name, email address, password and desired Quipol URL. After checking the terms and conditions agreement box, the user can submit the form and begin accessing their account.
Quipol is available to all users for free. The no cost access is a good way to encourage more users to stop by and participate in polls or create new polls. The user is given unlimited access to all basic features and can respond as many times as they like. The site does not place any limits on the number of polls a user can create. The user can return anytime to build a new poll or see what polls have been added by other users.
Quipol is a great tool for anyone who wants to gather the general opinion of a large online community. The polls are limited to one question each, so they are better suited to broader inquiries rather than those that might require a longer survey. The user can add an image to draw attention to their poll and see what others think about a specific question. Comments can also be posted to add an interactive element to each poll.
