How Zoho Polls Relates to other Applications">II. How Zoho Polls Relates to other Applications

Zoho Polls relates to other applications such as YouPolls and Survey Monkey. YouPolls is very similar to Zoho Polls. YouPolls is also free of charge, but more personal information is needed (such as your gender, postal code, and date of birth), unlike with Zoho Polls. SurveyMonkey is a bit different from Zoho Polls. It can be used free of charge, but a paying membership is needed to use all of the features. SurveryMonkey is also not as simple as Zoho Polls, because it can be used not only to poll people but to also schedule a meeting or group project and other things. SurveyMonkey is not as easy and simple to use as Zoho Polls.
