When you are going through problems, it always helps greatly to have someone to talk to. This someone could be family or friends, preferably the latter. As you need to get access to all your friends, you require a simple way to do so. PeepAdvice serves as a simple medium for exactly this. Simply post your queries with choices and obtain their opinion in the form of votes.

Developed by PeepAdvice Inc, this iOS helps you obtain the opinions of your friends on various matters. It gives you a platform to ask questions and provide available choices. Your friends can then express their views through a poll. It is essentially like a Facebook poll as it allows voting as well as commenting. The questions you ask can also be shared on Twitter and Facebook.

You can provide a maximum of two choices for your friends and followers to select between. This way, the number of choices you have is limited tremendously. While this may seem troublesome, it is also good in one way. It forces you to weigh your available options first before you post a query and hence makes you think the problem over well. Thus, the person asking a question will be considering his own choices before asking them.

While you might not be able to obtain the answers to life questions or scientific or career questions, you can get a good idea of public opinion. This advice comes from a few family members and close friends who know you well and understand you too. It could be about anything ranging from shopping choices to decisions for relationships to fights with friends to gift for someone.

Besides just posing questions and asking your friends for their opinion, you can also share your opinion through this community. Follow others and also get followed by them. Go through their questions and express your choices and suggest courses of action. The basic idea is to allow a two-way exchange of thoughts and ideas. This exchange is obtained very well with PeepAdvice.


PeepAdvice is a free app where you can add friends and family to state their opinions on your problems and help them out with theirs too. It has been kept basic in terms of a polling app and does not have too many features. This also results in a simple and extremely easy to use user interface without any clutter. It does what it does superbly and functions well.

If you are a person who has a problem making up your mind between simple choices, then this iOS app will help you indeed. You need an iOS 4.3 or later on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad with 2.8 MB of space. It has been optimized for the iPhone 5. It is a great polling app. While it might not help you answer questions as such, it will help you think them over and narrow down your choices to just two. This way, you will be giving sufficient thought to them and weighing your choices too.
