Ask your friends to rate a product or service on a 1-5 scale and provide their comments or feedback. The app will aggregate the score of all responses as well as show you how each individual rated it!
Trying to pick a spot to eat tonight? Maybe where to get your car serviced? What about which shoes to buy? Trying to decide between 2 or 3 things - no problem, just ask you friends to Rank'Em!
Whammee is a personal crowdsourcing application that allows you, the user, to request ratings, rankings, and open feedback on products or services that you're interested in. This relies on a one-to-many and many-to-one type of communication.
Today, you likely address this need in two ways: 1 - you go to those traditional review sites to see what "others" have said - however, you're likely to still seek and rely on feedback from those you know and trust. 2 - you post these questions/requests to your favorite social network, an email blast, or other broad messaging platform and hope for the best - then reading through all of the tangent conversations that occur, and trying to determine how people would actually rank their experiences with those products/services. There has to be a better way...
According to Erik Qualman's Socialnomics, 93% of Shoppers Buying Decisions are Influenced by Social Media, and 90% of Consumers Trust Peer Recommendations. Whammee leverages both of these notions and brings them together on a single platform! (http://www.socialnomics.net/)
