San Leandro, California (EastBayDaily) — The latest iOS survey app released by Opinionmeter International introduces enhanced offline survey capabilities. Once the survey app has been synced with the web-based SurveyManager, the device can function independently from the web. All the survey apps advanced features such as changing locations, branching and skip patters, even the inclusion of images and media within the survey questions and responses is now possible without needing access to an Internet connection.
In contrast to online surveys, when a survey app is installed on the device it solves most of the issues suffered by mobile web surveys (online surveys optimized for mobile browsers). When you have a resident app running on a device, there are many advantages such as application speed, access to advanced features (e.g. media capture, branching, multimedia, etc.) and of course avoiding the disruption of a survey when an Internet connection is lost or slow. Opinionmeter’s mobile survey app is designed in such a way that a researcher can walk in and out of connectivity range without the app missing a beat – if no Internet connection is detected the app automatically stores the data locally on the device and will upload that data at a later time whenever connectivity resumes. All this occurs in the background without disrupting the researcher or compromising the survey apps functionality.
“Lately we’ve been noticing a surge of interest in our offline survey apps. When taking a look at the inquiries for our mobile research solutions, we’re finding one of the dominant client requests is for mobile survey devices that have the ability to run in both online and offline modes.” explains Morgan Strickland, CEO of Opinionmeter International.
