This post is part of Mashable’s Spark of Genius series, which highlights a unique feature of startups. If you would like to have your startup considered for inclusion, please see the details here. The series is made possible by Microsoft BizSpark.

QpixL-260Name: QpixL

Quick Pitch: Snap a photo on your iPhone and send a question out to your Twitter and Facebook friends.

Genius Idea: Want to socialize a quick visual poll out to your social networks from your iPhone? That’s what QpixL can handle for you, without a lot of fuss and additional logins.

After installing the app (warning: iTunes link) you can enter your credentials for Facebook and/or Twitter. Then, either use an image already on your iPhone or snap a new pic to accompany your question.

When you upload your question, it will automatically post to your Facebook (Facebook) profile (if you’ve logged in) and your Twitter (Twitter) account (if you’ve logged in). Answers to your question will be aggregated back into the QpixL app along with the source (Twitter or Facebook), giving you a single interface to check all your results. You can also enter your email address in the app Settings if you’d like to get email notifications when your question is answered.

QpixL is a simple app that does what it advertises. It integrates nicely with two of the primary social networks most of us already use, and aggregates real-time results back to your iPhone without requiring you or your friends to create new logins. If you like tossing out quick visual questions and polls to your friends, it’s worth a try for the low cost of free.
