Chat groups are a great way to keep groups of friends in touch with one another all at once, but all the in-jokes and goofy commentary can make it difficult to actually make plans; TinyPoll is a useful extension for iMessage that helps groups to cut through the chatter. The simple system lets users create polls directly within iMessage, leaving the voting open to all members of the chat group.

Perhaps the most convenient aspect of TinyPoll is that users need not open up a separate, third-party app or browser window in order to cast their vote. The extension creates the poll within one's preexisting conversation bubble, and casting a vote is as easy as tapping one of the options — even if the voters themselves don't have the extension installed.
