Wouldn’t it be great if you could share that choice with a large number of friends– all at once– without calling each one individually to explain the details of your choices? Think of this iPhone app as a way to socialize your decisions and choices with friends.
Flip A Coin? Or, Seesaw?
Way back in the last century I remember using a Mac app which took the emotion out of decision making. The app captured specific criteria, given weight on a sliding scale, and the choice or decision was made.
It worked quite well until I figured out that I could weight the criteria’s slider bar to achieve a pre-determined decision.
Seesaw is a free app for the iPhone that takes decision making and choices to a whole new level, one that smacks more of socialism than I imagined.
It works like this. Take a quite photo of your choices (computer, shoes, phone, jewelry, lunch location, etc.) and poll the friends in your Contacts app.
Your friends will see the photos, know it’s from you, and can respond yea or nay, or this or that, without having to sign up for anything.
In a way, Seesaw is like a personal polling service. Poll your friends about a decision you want to make but need some opinions first.
Or, if you don’t have any friends, simply poll the Seesaw community to see what your public peeps say about your choices.
Your friends or family members or co-workers can respond and don’t need to be signed up for anything.
Just lay out your choices, poll whom you wish, wait for the results and commentary.
Now, think about other possibilities where Seesaw’s simple technology could be used. Which school should you attend? Which car should you buy?
You give the choices, attach a photo of each, and send to whomever is on your Contacts list.
Who should you vote for? This crook or that rufus? The possibilities are endless. Should I go here or there for vacation? You get the idea, right?
You could do something simple with just sending an iMessage to select names in Contacts, but Seesaw makes it easier to send and easier to get responses.
