What can you use the app for?

Thotpad is an application for the indecisive or for those with strong opinions and for anyone in between. Thotpad is an application that makes it easy for people to post their questions ranging in complexity and seriousness from "What color top should I wear?" to "Who should be the next president?" Users can post their thoughts and questions to their Thotpad and receive input from their Facebook circle of friends or even from a more global Thotpad audience. Through Thotpad, a user can create a customized "thot." This can include a link from an article or a clip from YouTube or any other piece of Internet media. From there, others can comment on the subject matter or submit a vote. Users can also build a new base of friends through the Thotpad community that overlaps with and builds upon their Facebook circle. Users could also share their Thotpad "thots" and rebroadcast them through their Twitter or Facebook account. Essentially, the virtual world can provide valuable feedback and guidance to a user's everyday problems and issues. Additionally users can post their opinion or where they are leaning to their main post and then invite other's to post their opinion as well.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

Thotpad was a bit difficult to navigate. This is because there were a number of broken links during this review and accessing the beta site took some web searches and wasn't entirely apparent from the homepage. Perhaps the site is new, there still shouldn't be as many broken links as AppAppeal encountered. Once registered, creating "thots" and setting up the voting mechanism is pretty easy and straightforward. As far as the design of the site goes, its layout display the many "thots" with clips of the sites or video and it makes it very engaging and visually appealing. The design is there, the site just needs to touch up on some of its execution to be taken seriously.

How does the registration process work?

Signing up for Thotpad can be done by providing them with one's first and last name, their email address, a username and a Thotpad password. Users can also sign up pretty quickly by linking their Facebook account to their Thotpad as well. New users will need to validate their account activation and email account by clicking on an activation link sent to their email address upon signing up.

What does it cost to use the application?

Thotpad is completely free to use. It makes sense to use it in conjunction with one's Twitter or Facebook accounts which are also free. There was no indication that Thopad would charge its users for accessing this service once it was beyond its beta testing of the application.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Thotpad is an interesting startup. For those who have wanted a unique and easy way to take polls or a voting mechanism among their friends to gauge opinions, Thotpad offers a solution. However, most will find that Facebook's polling tools or other social networking applications are easier to use, more integrated with their social networks and more established.

  • Ask Thotpad users and a circle of friends for their opinions on important issues.
  • Thotpad users can make it easy for people to submit their votes.
  • Share one's opinion on articles or videos through their Thotpad
