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.
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.
