The first version of PollDaddy launched back in October of 2006. Since then we have built up a great following amongst our users and have been busy working on the features that a lot of you have asked for. Today we are proud to announce version 2 of PollDaddy which has been in development for the past 6 months.
Whats New In Version 2?
There are three major additions to the new site. The first is the addition of our new online survey tool. In your account you can now start creating surveys with many different question types spread across multiple page. The second big addition is our new PollDaddy Pro account and finally we have also added a lot of features to our current poll system with more to come in the months ahead.
So why have we launched so many new features at once?
The first version of PollDaddy was really just an experiment for us. In order to provide the really great service that you guys deserve meant that we had to go back and change a lot of the code in the site to enable us to continue to grow; so it made more sense for us to go back and do it all at once. We now have a much more stable platform to build from and we plan on adding feature now on a monthly basis, so there will be no more big versions and long waits for new features. We will be adding features now as we build them.
