Tossup is the new Microsoft poll app

Microsoft is continuing its recent trend of ignoring its own Windows Phone mobile operating system with the launch of a new mobile app designed to help you create impromptu polls around events.

Available for Android and iOS in the U.S. only, Tossup lets you ask quick questions such as where to have lunch, for example, or where to meet. It can be used to garner opinions on just about anything. And Tossup is the latest in a long line of apps to emerge from the vaults of Microsoft Garage, the computing giant’s innovation lab.

Launched in August of last year, Snipp3t is an iOS-only app that gathers celebrity news from across the Web in a single place. Then there’s the Next Lock Screen app for Android which gives you access to key information directly from your lock screen. Picturesque is another lock screen app designed with Microsoft’s Bing search engine in mind. Journeys & Notes is a social travel app that seeks to connect a community of users who have traveled on similar routes.
