Tap That App: Does this make my butt look big? Poll the public!

2:11 /

With Thumb, you can ask the public for their opinions about pretty much anything.

Hey, folks, welcome to Tap That App. I�m Jaymar Cabebe, and this is the show where we tap the finest pieces of app on planet Earth. Today we are checking out Thumb, which basically lets you poll the public about anything you want. Use it correctly, and it can be a nice little tool for some casual research. Here�s how it works: there are two ways to use Thumb: You can Ask for Opinions or you can Give Your Opinion. If you want to ask for opinions, first type in your question--the yes- or-no variety works best--then attach a photo. You can use a photo from your gallery, take a new photo, or grab one from the Web, all from within Thumb�s interface. After that, select a category, to give your question some context, then hit Get Opinions! It�ll take a minute for people to start chiming in, so you can go ahead and vote on other people�s questions while you wait. You can vote with a thumbs-up, a thumbs-down, or you can keep it neutral. If you like, you can also add comments, which users always appreciate. And to make it easy, each time you vote, the app will automatically move you on to the next question. At this point, my only issue with Thumb is that some of the users tend to ask questions that aren�t exactly optimized for the platform, if you know what I�m saying. Take this one. Doesn�t exactly lend itself to the thumbs-up-thumbs-down format, right? So, just be sure to pose your questions correctly, and Thumb will be a really useful tool for everybody. Now, to go back and see what the public thinks of my question. [Read the poll results: e.g. �40 people have chimed in, and it looks like about half of them think��] And if you want, you can also see the results of your previous questions. As you can see here, 71% of Thumb�s users were totally wrong about the shirt I was wearing yesterday. And that�s it, folks. Thumb is free and available on both the Android Market and iTunes App Store. I highly suggest you download it, and give my red lumberjack shirt some love. Otherwise, if you�ve got another hot app that you want me to tap, holler at me on the Twitter. Thanks for watching.
