Ovoto Review: Decision Making Application of Android

Decisions, decisions, decisions! Making these decisions can really trouble you to no end. I know, I have gone through this many a time and so have you, I am sure! That’s until I came across an app called Ovoto on the Android Play Store.



Ovoto makes your decision making process easier

Ovoto is a free app for Android that helps you make decisions without the usual fuss. I really found it handy when it came to making selections, like the ones that I talked about earlier. Unsure about making that particular purchase, turn to Ovoto, for that invaluable opinion. So how does Ovoto, help you? We will find out in a bit…

I have always found that whenever I am faced with situations of making a choice, I don’t mind looking for a second opinion. Mostly that opinion comes from a friend, my partner, any one from the family and so on. I am sure that’s the case with many of our ardent readers as well! In this busy day and age, it’s nearly impossible to have your friends accompany you or call them up, to decide on that diamond ring purchase for your sweetheart! However, this is also the day and age of technology and social networks, right! That’s exactly where Ovoto steps in, like a trusted friend or should I say a community of trusted friends.

Next time you are caught in a choice between a watch or a shirt for your dad, just take a snap of the items with Ovoto on your Android device. Ovoto will then help you create a poll that can be shared with your Facebook friends. Your buddies can then vote, signalling their choice and there you have it! Your decision making just got a flip-up!

Ovoto will let you create polls with specific time validity, like say 15 minutes or 1 hour. All that is needed for Ovoto to work for you is permission to access your Facebook contacts. For those of your friends who have Ovoto installed on their smart devices (works on iOS too!), they can vote directly from the app itself. For others who don’t have the app, they can vote through a link to the Ovoto website. Needless to say, Ovoto users among your family and friends can set up their own polls, asking for your opinion! The ‘My Polls’ tab shows all your polls while the ‘Friends Polls’ tab displays polls from your Facebook friends. You also get an option to extend the polling time in case of not having enough responses, and can also inform your friends about the poll results.

Ovoto Social Polling App – The Thrills

Using Ovoto is a breeze and the interface is pleasing to the eye. Once you give Ovoto permissions on your Facebook account, you can easily work with it to create polls for almost anything and ask for opinions from your friends. If most of your friends get on to Ovoto, you and they will not miss the physical presence of a good friend when making certain decisions. What’s more, with Ovoto you’ll have a whole community of friends for you!

Ovoto Social Polling App – The Spills

The app is very simple and doesn’t have any glaring issues really. At least, none that I have encountered so far! However, one little improvement could be in the way we create the polls. The app gives you only one option of adding a single verb like ‘buy’ or ‘eat’ after the standard poll question ‘Should I’. So, all you would be saying is something like ‘Should I buy’ with a caption for the image that could go as ‘this dress’ or something else. You can’t really personalize the messages like for instance, ‘Which restaurant should we meet at tonight?’ with a few of restaurant options. It would be great if we are not forced to stick with the on app suggestion.

All said and done, I really enjoyed using Ovoto and I hope many of you will too. It can get you out of some tricky decision making dilemmas. So go right ahead and download this cool app from Google Play and let us know what you think. Till we meet again on another amazing journey into the world of Android right here, goodbye and happy sharing!
