Hey, Hunters! I'm Mike Brusov, Movemaker and co-founder of Vote! Nice to be here in a good company. It will be very useful to figure out your feedback about our Prediction Media. Don't hesitate to ask any questions. Btw, Vote! on January'16 was selected to the NYC-based accelerator. So, let's drink a coffee here and discuss Prediction Market and Crowd Sourcing for Forecasting. It may be very practical especially for journalists/bloggers/reporters - because we offer our platform to get a data of crowds opinion about any topical issues - politics, sports, finance, technology etc. May the force be with us!

Vote! is a Prediction Game Media. Every day you receive a list of the most topical news the outcome of which will happen tomorrow. The challenge for users is to predict the outcome of those events and become Number 1 among the most successful participants-analytics to be able to fight for a Presidency in his/her own country! On the one hand, it's a Game - Compete with players from all over the world, predicting the news outcome. On the other hand, it's a Media - Each day you see a selection of the most relevant news that is going to happen tomorrow. Therefore, it's a Game Media - With such a format of the mobile application, you are going to be aware of all significant worldwide and local events as well as compare your analytical skills to your friends' ones.

Looking forward to trying this. I have a keen ability to predict who will die on my favorite TV shows. ;) *Update, just downloaded and voted several times. A couple things for @mike_brusov: * The 'x' button in top right of an issue, it doesn't work. I was forced to vote. * After allowing push notifications for vote verdicts, the app froze on a white screen. * Why limit the # of votes I get before inviting friends? Enable me to love the product, then the friend invites will come naturally.

@ryanckulp Yes, but we'll not do a spoiler-prediction about John Snow for example )) * The 'x' button in top right of an issue, it doesn't work. I was forced to vote. -- Yeap, we are seeing this bug in some cases. Will debug it in the nearest update. * After allowing push notifications for vote verdicts, the app froze on a white screen. -- Could you please send me a screenshot (mike@thevoteapp.com), first time I hear about such bug. * Why limit the # of votes I get before inviting friends? Enable me to love the product, then the friend invites will come naturally. -- Ryan, the reason why we limited the number of votes is not more about inviting friends, but for creating a personalized strategy for each user. The maximum of votes (even after inviting friends) is 4 per day. So, each forecaster should choose everyday namely the events for which he/she can get maximum points. Ryan, thanks a lot for that detailed feedback! We have a couple of ideas/hacks how to growth the app's audience (with a help of some opinion leaders for generating news for prediction for example). And it will be very interesting to know your growth ideas about this challenge. Had anything come to your mind in this regard?
