Verdict is an iPhone app that lets people give and get opinions anonymously. It works by allowing people to post an image and a description (ie ‘What do you think of my watch?’). Other users can then vote the image up or down and the initial user can see the feedback; users can swipe up or down to indicate thumbs up, or thumbs down.
Pictures can be added into several categories including Art/Design, Food, Jewelry, Men’s Fashion, Tech, Watches, Women’s Fashion and Other.
It is not shown how many people have rated up and how many down, only the total number (positive votes minus the negative votes) is shown, indicating the “true public perception,” similar to how commercial market research and public polling operates.
Essentially Verdict aims to make industry-standard market research available to the average person. They can ask for an opinion on anything that fits into one of the categories, and can see almost immediately what the feedback is.
