Are you a meeting planner or content developer running meetings without the budget for unlimited microphones? Speakers, how do you manage audience questions? Microphones are expense and multiples are often restricted. There may be one for the speaker and a few for audience members to pass around or a standing mic to queue up – a logistical nightmare. What if there was an app for that? There is – Crowd Mic. I became familiar with the app through an article in BizBash – http://bit.ly/1kuUJfU. Crowd Mics turns your audience’s iOS and Android Devices into wireless microphones for live events. This app also allows for polling! Think how expensive polling equipment can be to order.
