Opinionaided -- free app for getting opinions from others

One of the neat things about the Internet and social networking is the opportunity to get real-time responses to requests via services such as Twitter and Facebook. Opinionaided (free) has jumped into this arena and has become quite popular, in part because it's easy to use and addicting. In a recent weekend they had 4 million responses to 65,000 questions or requests. Opinionaided will return around 12 answers to your question in a few minutes. The service is broken up into a variety of categories including Attractiveness, Art, Design & Photography, Dating & Relationships, Apps, Technology & Gadgets, Style & fashion, Music, Movies & TV. Of course you can not only solicit opinions of others, but also vote on, and comment on, requests made by others. You can limit your requests to your social network, or have them go public.
