Poll Everywhere…using SMS!


Poll Everywhere, a Y Combinator company that launched last Fall, is a service that allows presenters to sidestep these obstacles by taking polls with mobile phones. Instead of using a proprietary device, users simply send a SMS message to a specified number. This data can then be displayed on a dynamic PowerPoint slide, allowing users to watch the results change on the fly.

I just tried and it works in Singapore! Wicked stuff! 😀

    Wahoo! I saw this at NECC this summer, but at that time they said it only worked in the US. I’m thrilled it works here. I just had a teacher asking for something like this on Friday. Thanks for your timely blog post.
