Pinnion.comWe all have a clearly-defined opinion of these services we use the most, and these companies we interact with on a daily basis. But filling out surveys or polls is a bore, and we seldom do it. They might offer us prizes beyond compare in exchange for our time. But it’s all to no avail. We have better things to do than filling out surveys we probably won’t ever hear again from.

Which is particularly problematic if you’re the one who has to create these surveys. What can you do to ensure that at least a respectable percentage of the people who come across your surveys will actually complete them? This new service is the answer to that question.

Pinnion lets you create interactive surveys, polls and quizzes for smartphones. And it lets you do it for free, as the basic version of the service comes at zero cost. It gives you unlimited questions, responses, custom branding and graphics, and it also lets you use custom closing messages. Plus, it lets you view and analyze results in real time.

And if you’re ready to pay for it, there’s a premium package that gives you question piping, skip logic and around-the-clock email support. These features are actually all included as part of the basic plan for a limited time, so if this sounds like the kind of service that could make your job much easier then you have the perfect excuse for trying it out right now.

At you can create your quiz or survey with the topic you want, and send it through your mobile to all your contacts. This will be a useful tool either for playing with friends or relatives and have something to talk about in a future meeting. Imagine if you give a party for some anniversary of yours, it could be quite exciting for the invited guests to take the quiz with the promise of earning a good prize in case they answer correctly.

But also, you can create a survey for finding out about customer satisfaction if you run some business. The appealing feature of this service is that you can include pictures and videos as part of your quizzes, making them much more lively and entertaining than what simple text forms would be.

To start making your personalized survey you should visit and register an account. After this you need to sign up and start making the questions and adding the pictures or videos you want to include. You may add up to seven multiple choice answers for some questions.

When you finish writing the questions (which you can modify later on, anyway), an e-mail will be sent to you with a link to install the quiz on your mobile. The process varies slightly depending if you use iPhone or Android, but both ways are explained in the webpage and in the end you’ll get the app’s icon on your home screen. Once this is achieved you can send the quiz to all your contacts and collect the responses.

When the process is ended, you can check the results on the website, and export them in csv format, which can be read on Microsoft Excel. Now that you’ve got your survey answered, it is up to you to make the best use of the information you obtained.

Golden Corral started business in 1973 and today is one of the leading buffet and grill restaurants. Its website is a nice looking resource that makes you enjoy the visit, but more will you enjoy the opportunity to win an iPod or $1000 for filling their customer satisfaction survey.

To take the survey you just need to enter a code number you’ll find in the check receipt or an invitation card. From there on, click on the multiple choice answers to the questions they ask you.

It won’t take you longer than seven or eight minutes filling it, and you will also feel the satisfaction of being asked whether your experience at the restaurant was pleasant or not. Food taste and temperature, kindness and hospitality of the staff and of the manager, cleanness of restrooms and different food areas, are all issues in which Golden Corral wants to know your impression.

You’ll also be asked about some personal information such as your age, your sex and your income, but you are free not to answer should you prefer this, so you only need to click the corresponding choice.

Upon finishing the survey you are immediately taken to the form asking for your contact information so the company can let you know if you won the iPod or the $1000 prize.

And in case you fail to submit the code number, you will be provided with a help section where you will find ways to get at the problem which prevented you from submitting the code, so that you can try to resubmit it correctly. The site gives you the chance of taking a look at their previous winners as well.

PollBob.comThe more social things are nowadays the better. That seems to be the way of thinking of many a developer out there. And while that can lead to strange results sometimes (there are some services that by their mere nature have to be anything but social), more than often taking a service and pointing it the social way enhances its overall usability and degree of engagement. Take polls, for example. They’re something that can but become more effective the more social they are, as that can only mean a larger number of people will get to answer them. I think nobody would argue with that, but if you’re unconvinced I invite you to try PollBob.

This new service is letting you create polls that can be shared with friends and their friends on what works as nothing short of a true social community. And the participation of people is ensured by rewarding them for their time. Whenever someone takes a poll or shares it, he’s actually getting points he can use to unlock badges and get access to prizes. And points are also earned by actually creating polls.

PollBob is available both as a web service, and as an iPhone app. Nothing is charged for creating polls, answering them, and sharing them around.
