Why iPad surveys are effective

There are plenty of free survey tools available online, like SurveyGizmo or Zoho Survey. While they technically run on iPad, they lack more powerful iPad survey tool features such as offline responses and swiping through questions. An iPad can be an excellent offline and online survey tool when combined with software that’s built specifically to work beautifully on this platform. For good reason, these devices have changed the tablet market forever, as they offer several key advantages:

  • The stability and reliability of the iPad and its operating system
  • The portability of a tablet
  • A familiar and trusted user experience

By either setting an iPad up at a fixed kiosk or passing it along to a responder, iPad surveys offer immediate feedback that’s translated into solid data.

Which survey tools are better? Native Apps or HTML5?

Whether to build a custom native app or build an online survey tool using HTML5 is a common question for businesses today. In terms of the features and customization available, apps offer definite advantages. They can also access the full range of features on most devices more easily. However, this all comes at a cost. Native apps are comparatively expensive to develop. While HTML5 has been catching up in features, it still offers a very affordable option for developers who don’t want customers to have to install a full app. For our survey platform, we’ve chosen to develop survey tools with HTML5 because it provides an app-like experience, along with all the functions a good survey application requires. Additionally, it increases survey response rates by not requiring respondents to install an app.

Powerful Survey Tools Designed for iPad

The ease of creating applications with HTML5 is great, but only when it comes with all the features your business needs. Here are some key ones:

  • Full offline survey functionality is enormously important. There’s no reason to have to rely on event wi-fi for your data collection. The platform allows you to collect your results offline and have the data transferred as soon as the device is connected again.
  • Automatic responsive design means that your quizzes and surveys look great on any screen.
  • Custom colors, icons and survey formats make sure your finished product matches your imagination and brand identity.
  • White label surveys, with custom URLs and the ability to incorporate your own branding throughout, make these surveys ideal options for agencies or organisations wanting the look and feel of a completely customized survey.
  • Interactive content and widgets like digital scratch cards and a slot machine make your surveys and quizzes fun and engaging.

Today’s HTML5 is capable of offering all of these features, resulting in surveys that are more affordable and uniquely engaging.


Kiosk Mode: Security & Ease of Use for Offline Event Surveys

With our platform’s kiosk mode using iOS guided access, it’s easy to lock the device into the survey, so that only the survey content is accessible. That means there’s no way for respondents to access any other applications or data on the iPad. They can only access the survey you’ve created for them, meaning that the interface is simple and distraction-free – making this one of the best survey tools for research ‘in the field’.

Engaged Audiences, Higher Survey Response Rates

If you want honest, quality answers from a large number of respondents, you’ll need them to be engaged with your survey. That could mean offering rewards for completion, ensuring they’re visually appealing or even creating surveys that are simply fun to fill out. Without an engaging survey to hold respondents’ interest, your response rates will decline, along with the quality of your answers. One of the easiest incentives to offer is an interactive and enjoyable survey-taking experience. This alone typically increases survey response rates by 15-30%. Those percentages can go even higher when other specific incentives like prize drawings or discounts are offered. Another critical aspect of quality customer data is when it’s collected. The information you collect with your survey will be richer and have greater validity if it’s gathered immediately after experiencing a product, service, or event. iPad surveys offer that immediacy.

Sample uses of iPad surveys

With the tool’s ability to monitor results in real time, you can act on the information you’re gathering with your surveys as soon as you receive it! You can use the surveys to:

  • Make presentations more lively, just like BP did to get quality feedback from busy CEOs.
  • Enhance community engagement, by approaching your audience personally. A mobile survey allows you to talk about what really matters, while providing the survey data you need.
  • Get real time feedback at conferences. Imagine presenting three new products to an audience, then asking them which they’d like to hear more about.
  • Optimize your trainings or classes by allowing a classroom to let you know when they need something explained in more detail before you move on to the next subject.
  • Or make your lead generation more efficient by using the iPad’s characteristics: swiping, selfie-uploads, a scratch card contest, …

3 effective iPad survey question tips

No matter who you’re targeting, there are some universal tips for asking the right kinds of survey questions.

  1. First, use simple language and be direct. With every survey question, it should be clear what you’re asking and why.
  2. Next, keep it short, and appropriate. This can mean different things based on the context, but it’s usually best to be funny and playful according to your brand’s guidelines, while still maintaining a good level of professionalism. Keep in mind the amount of time your respondent has and limit your questions. Remember, the best surveys out there are fun and useful.
  3. Finally, you should provide a seamless experience. That’s why embedding your quizzes and surveys into your own native app with our tool is a great way to boost their performance. If customers are already experiencing your content, it makes sense to drive them towards a survey to give feedback.
