Poutsch launches its addictive social polling service on the iPhone

Poutsch, a service which we likened to Quora for polls earlier this year, is launching on the iPhone.

With this move, the startup is clearly pushing the social aspects of its network. Instead of serving as a polling tool, it’s more of a network for asking and answering questions with friends.

As with any social service, it’s going to be difficult to use if your friends aren’t already on it. To keep your feed from utter emptiness, Poutsch recommends active users to follow. You won’t know them, but given how low-friction polls are, it’s pretty easy to get wrapped up in answering random questions like: “Is Tumblr still cool?” and “Dailymotion or YouTube?”


After experimenting with the service on the Web, we found it to be quite good — not perfect,  but still one of the best around. On the iPhone, our opinions remain unchanged; the app is impressive, but comes with a few glitches and random slow-loads that likely won’t make or break your experience.

As far as the design goes, Poutsch has continued its decision to embrace a decidedly flat design with an almost-pastel color scheme. In other words, it’ll fit right at home on Apple’s upcoming iOS 7.

If you’re actually searching for a polling solution, Poutsch is definitely worth a try — although you might not be able to pronounce the name. But even if you’re not actively searching for this sort of tool, you might find Poutsch an entertaining way to spend a few moments answering quick polls in your downtime.
