Show of Hands
Show of Hands is an easy-to-use real-time ANONYMOUS polling application for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad.

Poll topics include politics, ethics, pop-culture, sports, parenting, health, humor...whatever seems interesting. Three or four new questions are added daily, and make for great dinner table discussion topics! I do my best to keep poll questions unbiased, and since the application doesn't collect your email or name, you don't have to worry about your opinion being connected back to you or your data getting "out there" somehow.
