Better which makes it great

Nice! [Update]: Thanks for the continuous updates. I would like to log in and stay logged in. I appreciate being able to log in from different social media sites but you could link the profiles to keep the same polls. Logging in with different social sights doesn't retain your polls from other log in's such as twitter versus fb. The app itself is great and a neat idea. I'm increasing my rating from 3 to 4. Why only 4, because innovation for me gets a 5. Toast notifications or tile numbering or graphics showing the poll percentages or something would be nice. This is windows phone and notifications and live tiles are what we are about. <-- nice voice.. I like the app very much. THANKS!!

Please update this app

When this app used to work (Excellent. Needs a universal app version 😁 would like to see comments. Needs a way to see full text of questions better. The review nags are weekly if you hit yes. Random and daily if you hit no.)
