Aside from the specific options on the list (which we will be addressing with the next update), do you prefer the new drop-down menu for the poll list filters (SOH, NEW, etc.) or the prior "always-shown" buttons taking space at the top of the list?

Hate the drop down and too many choices. Simpler is better. And the all button is a must!

Drop down but change the options in it

I don't like that the drop down doesn't have an option to pull up polls I've posted (unless I've commented on it).

I'm pretty sure the poll questions you ask show up under favorites.

The drop down is a million times more convenient. I'll be very sad if it changes

Drop-down for phones and always displayed for tablets or just make but an option in settings.

New way: 2 taps
Old way: 1 tap

Only pro I see to the new way is that you can fit more options

Android still has tabs... but I just had an iPhone 3 days ago and had the drop down. I prefer the tabs that are always there.

I like the drop down but now when I choose SoH or user, my polls don show up. I have to go to new, commen in them and then gob to my comments tab. My polls need to be in the user tab

You can find them in favorites unless you "unfavorite" them. Old polls you can find by going to your profile and press the published polls button.

The iPad still has the tabs, and my phone has the drop down menu. Comparing the two, I prefer the tabs.

Drop down requires two touches. Always there options require only one touch. Call me lazy.

Would have been nice to have been included in this poll. Android gets no love lol. Since we never got the drop down menu, and I've seen it on my girlfriends iPhone, I will vote the latter.

Perhaps we can get the "your comments" category too?

The only thing I really really miss, is the "mine" button. It's kind of a pain to scroll through dozens of favorites to find a poll I posted.

I think I would like the drop down better if there was also an "all" category. I don't typically differentiate between the different categories.

Ive gotten used to this but it seems like there is more work involved to get to a poll. User? Hot? New? Did I comment? Didn't I comment? Sometimes i think the poll is in one place when its in the other. Miss the all button. Tks for your work T.

I don't like the extra couple taps with the drop-down. I know that sounds kinda ridiculous, but it's noticeably less smooth and intuitive.

I do like it, and the "my comments" is nice too, but the drop down menu and lack of an "all" button is clunky enough to the point where I liked it better the old way.

Ah, I got it. You don't like extra tapping. I read it as you don't like the extra options in the menu.

I'm kinda diggin' the new menu. But having a Mine option would be nice so we don't have to go back to the Profile to get just a list of our own polls. But I love the new filters!

I've gotten used to the drop-down and understand the benefit, but prefer having the buttons there all the time. Maybe a hybrid, with the lesser-used options on a "more" button is possible?

I prefer the drop-down menu, but only because it allows for more poll filters; otherwise I liked the one-tap convenience.

I have thoughts about having SOH as the default & separating SOH polls out of All, but I realize you aren't asking about that.

Whichever you choose, I'd love to have the ALL tab back. I've gotten used to the drop-down, but it's still kind of unfortunate not having ALL :(

imnsho, I like the new dropdown as is. Granted, I do miss the SoH polls when they are fresh out because I'm usually on the USERS tab and not New. I miss that a little bit.

If you stick with the drop-downs, then can we have a way to choose our own preferred default (NEW instead of SOH, etc.)?

If not, I'd rather go back to the old system. I'm sorry, but it's inconvenient to have to keep choosing NEW.

Always there is fine for the iPad but I suspect I'd prefer the drop down menu on a phone. However the day I install SOH on my phone may be the day my wife starts divorcing me.
