Sometimes it’s hard to coordinate meet ups with a large group of friends even with group messaging. Microsoft is trying to solve the problem in a new way with an app for iOS and Android called Tossup. The app also has a fun polling system and built-in integration to make it easier to figure out what to do when you all get together.
In order to use Microsoft’s Tossup app, users will need to register with their Facebook account or e-mail address. Users can then send out questions to their friends by using Tossup’s polling options, such as “Where should we go for lunch?” and more. Alternatively, one can get creative and come up with their own questions. When it comes to picking out a restaurant, the app will show the user restaurants nearby that one can add to the poll. One can see restaurant information such as opening hours, reviews, addresses, and more.
If one’s friends haven’t installed the app yet, they can send them a link via e-mail or text message to invite them and get started. Once the friend receives the link, they will be asked to download the app, so they can participate in the poll.
Even though most people will likely use the app for planning formal events, Tossup is equally useful in silly scenarios. For example, if one is shoe shopping, they could ask their friends’ opinion on which pair to buy. Tossup is available to download from the App Store and Google Play Store.
