What is the history and popularity of the app?

MicroPoll calls itself the “easiest way to create website polls.” The entire site is dedicated to giving users the tools they need to build a functional, well organized online poll. The user is given complete control and customization, with the ability to change font sizes, title background and background colors, poll boarders, and answer types.

Micropoll has taken the process of creating online polls and given the user maximum customizability and control over the polls they make and post on their websites.

What are the differences to other apps?

Many websites offer users a simple poll creation tool. While these generally work, they are usually very watered down. The user cannot choose color, style, or even different types of responses. Most allow the user to enter a few lines of text for the question and answers and then provide the code to post it. MicroPoll does this, but takes it to another level by adding numerous customization options. The user can create a poll that not only works, but looks good on their website. They can even choose from different answer formats, such as radio buttons, drop down boxes, or check boxes.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

The MicroPoll website has a very unique design. The item headers have an eye-catching three dimensional quality while the light blue color scheme perfectly contrasts the black title header. The site is free of clutter and well organized but far from boring. The design adds a bit of personality that could encourage users to not just make a poll, but make one that looks good on their website.

How does the registration process work?

A new user can register for a MicroPoll account by clicking the white “Sign Up” link in the top right hand corner of the homepage (in the black header). The registration form is unique, using a poll style format to ask the user if they would like to setup polls on their website. After clicking the corresponding response (which is optional) and entering an email address, the user can click the light blue “Get started for Free: button at the bottom left hand corner. This immediately takes the user to the poll creation form which offers customization tools and asks for the poll question and answers.

What does it cost to use the application?

Anyone can use MicroPoll for free. There are no subscription fees and no premium paid account option. That being said, there is a money making side to Micropoll. Anyone can use the tools offered, however the site also recommends a full featured survey tool, QuestionPro. It seems that Micropoll is intended to spark interest in QuestionPro and entice users to give the full paid version a try. QuestionPro includes the option of a free basic account, but this only allows one survey and up to ten questions and 100 responses. The Professional plan runs about $15 and includes unlimited surveys, questions and responses as well as enhanced security and data export. The most expensive option is the Corporate, which runs about $100 per month and upgrades to include additional advanced features.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Any website owner that wants to post a poll can appreciate MicroPoll. The service is simple, but very easy to use and functional. It is also just right for anyone’s budget – free. Users have the option of going with a paid QuestionPro account as well, but for some, MicroPoll is sufficient.
