There are many websites available that allow users to create a basic poll for free. The service is not very complicated, and usually takes little time. However, the creators of Quikpiq wanted to take that concept and give it a little more personality without taking away from the simplicity of it. The user interface is very easy to learn and anyone can log on, create a poll and get results fast. Quikpiq is a new twist on the classic online poll.
Quikpiq offers a simple service that should not be complicated. That being said, the site provides users with a little extra bonus: the ability to add URLs or images to the poll instead of just plain text like many other free poll creation websites. Quikpiq does this without complicating the process in any way. Users of all experience levels can adapt quickly to the Quikpiq interface to create their own personalized polls.
The Quikpiq website features a gentle color scheme of blue and white. The site appears calm overall, with the images included in user polls adding a little more detail. The focus remains on the polls the Quikpiq community creates, which is a plus. There are a few advertisements placed on the site, however these are not terribly intrusive. The Quikpiq website offers a simple service, so really, the site would appear empty without a few advertisements scattered throughout. The navigational tools are kept simple so the user does not feel overwhelmed and can get right to the point of Quikpiq: making unique online polls.
Even the Quikpiq registration process has been streamlined. A new user can click the blue “sign in with Twitter: button found at the top right hand corner of the homepage (just below the blue header). The login form asks the user for their Twitter account information to access Quikpiq. The downside is that anyone who doesn’t have a Twitter account, or has no desire to link their profiles, has no other option. Quikpiq is listed as in beta, so perhaps this will change down the road. The site does not provide any insight into the issue, but for now, the login process is kept very simple using Twitter.
The service Quikpiq offers is nothing new. For a long time now, many websites have been offering users a way to create their own online polls and post them all over the internet. These are free, as they should be for such a basic service. Quikpiq follows suit by allowing users to login and create polls for free. There are no membership costs and no fees for building a poll or voting on one. Users can sign up through their Twitter account, which is also free, so the entire process comes at no cost to the user. The site contains advertisements, but it is understandable that the site needs to make some income to maintain itself and continue offering a free service.
Anyone who wants to know what others think can really appreciate Quikpiq. The site is entirely dedicated to creating online polls. Quikpiq may be a preferable choice for some because the site allows users to add images and links. Polls that require a more visual option can do well when created through Quikpiq.
