Straw’s latest update brings Bing Image integration for visually dynamic surveys

The fast-paced iteration of polling app Straw continues. Over the last few weeks, we’ve seen Straw jump from being Windows Phone exclusive to a multiplatform app. Straw has also gained features and performance fixes along the way as a steady stream of updates poured out from development.

Here at WinBeta, Straw has become an invaluable tool in helping us communicate with our audience. From opinion polls on future Microsoft smartphone flagships to feelings about being Windows Insiders, Straw has helped us understand our readers on a deeper level.

Today, Straw has added the ability to create picture polls using Bing Image search. According to the Straw blog:

Now, when you create a poll and tap the little camera icon to add a picture, you’ll get three options – snap a new photo, pull an existing photo from your phone, or search with Bing.”

The new addition saves users precious steps in creating polls on the go. Rather than jumping back and forth from the app to the browser to create an image rich survey, users can now use new image search graph Bing to highlight their study.

The update is rolling out, so be patient if it hasn’t popped up in your App Store update yet. The guys over at Straw are encouraging users also try out the browser version of the service to get your hands on the newest feature.
