ExpiWell uses iOS and Android mobile apps to deliver researcher surveys.
These are free and available for participants (and researchers) to download.
We use mobile apps because these enable more powerful functionality, including:
1. Capturing video, voice, photo, and location information from participants.
2. Sending notifications and reminders to participants to complete surveys via the app.
3. Sending messages from researchers to participants, especially ones who may not be providing adequate responses on a project.
This is only the beginning - we are working to provide participant payments via the app, create a validated pool of respondents from which researchers can draw from, enable the collection of background and app usage information from participants for specific projects, and enable the collection of health data for specific projects.
