Today I was flipping through Flipboard on my iPad and came across a dozen headlines touting the latest polls. Depending on which ones I read, President Obama was losing, tied, or winning. Conversely, Governor Romney was losing, tied, or winning.
Who can make sense of all those conflicting and constantly changing survey polls? You can with PollTracker, the free poll tracking app for iPhone and iPad.
It’s important to track polls because the Mincey household is a politically divided household. I’m for the winner, and my wife is for the loser.
PollTracker is straightforward to use. Select specific candidate races throughout the U.S.
These include the presidential race on a state-by-state and national basis, as well as polls for races in each state, including House and Senate candidates.
PollTracker averages polls and provides a red line vs. blue line average over time.
Navigation is easy using the icons on the bottom or arrows on the top. Polls can be shared from the iPad and iPhone’s Share button.
And, you can save specific polls as favorites. It’s a useful tool, aimed more at iPhone users than iPad users (on the iPad it uses screen doubling, but works adequately). Notifications of new polls are also built-in and can be managed in Notification Center.
It’s hard to argue with the poll results (if your candidate is ahead) or the price.
