We've just released an updated poll result screen. The stacked pie charts are back (on the phone). Filters have vote counts. The gradient map works. And the whole thing should be quite a bit faster. Questions?

Bring back the stacked charts please, or at least give me an option.

Map broke on iOS 7 again. It worked for awhile, disappeared with this stealth update.

Only question... What the heck happened to Michigan? My hand map doesn't work for that.

Can no longer see all states because ads are in the way... And I think the old way was WAY faster because you could see results without clicking everything individually.

I'm confused. Nothing has changed in the way you see results.

Tony, when a user has their profile to private, the link on the upper right part of their profile always says "Follow" even if I am already following them. Is this intentional?

I'm on an iPad, and the ads at the bottom are taking up actual space and covering things at the bottom of pages. I have to pull them up to see them, then they go right back to being hidden when I let them go.

Of course, it's up to you, but I thought $2 was well worth it. I use this app so much and I was happy to support it, with a one-time charge.

Heh - Google's new map is funny. New England's physically seceding now? I do have a question though: exactly what data does Google compile on us now? Are individual comments being saved anywhere?

Tony SOH Founder
07/04/13 8:47 am

Google doesn't get any SOH data whatsoever. The only touch point is that we use their dynamic map generating service and pass it state-by-state numbers so their service can draw the maps.

Oh yeah I forgot to ask if it all gets sucked up automatically into the new big data warehouse in Utah. So, NO outside entity gets our info and comments except you? ???? Way to make yourself a valuable guy!! Seriously, I'm grateful for your work.

I think it's on your profile tab. Scroll to the bottom and click on "turn off ads." This costs $1.99 (if I remember right). I think this is what they mean by "donating." Really, it's an in-app purchase, but well worth it, in my opinion.

We're working on the Android update. In the meantime, the website at www.showofhands.mobi might work better for you.

Searching for someone to follow requires an exact match. It would really be nice to use wild cards in the search box. If case matters, can you make so it isn't?

iPad gets the same improvement. It's the same faster page, but the pie charts are in a row since the view is wider.

Not related to the pie charts, but what happened to the stats slide? I liked when it told me I "voted most like" etc.

Mine were not accurate on the old version. I think Tony wants to look at the algorithm and make it better, before he brings it back.

I would love to see education pie charts, in addition to those already displayed. For example, for the "which would cause more chaos" and "will humans ever figure out..." types of questions, I would be interested to see how people with PhDs vote.

Hey Tony, I'm having really weird commenting issues. When I post a comment it no longer reloads to the comment but only goes to the top of the page. Then, I posted a comment in the speed of light poll but then saw the comments for this poll.

Then I commented and was back to speed of light. Commented again and then I got the comments for both polls, first one set and then the other.

Yeah, you can estimate, but not necessarily get a specific number, particularly with a large number of votes. Especially since the percentage rounds up.
