Our group includes myself, Khaleque Ismail, Dongjie Wang, and Nicolas Hurtado
We want to create an application that makes completing surveys and getting paid easy and fun for people who usually don’t have time to sit at a computer or phone for thirty or more minutes. Our target demographic will be drivers (especially young drivers).
The application will allow users to take surveys and earn money from their car or at home by responding to spoken or written survey questions (this will be based on user preference). Questions will span a wide variety of topics and the questions will be determined based the user’s demographic. Once the question has been stated the user will be given a specific time frame to articulate their answer. After the user answers a specific number of questions they are awarded a small amount of money to their account. One thing to note is that there is not limit to how few or how many questions a person has to complete in one sitting. A user can answer one question and close the app or continue to answer as many as they can. This is something that other survey sites are unable to offer.
The application will require a large amount of demographic information when a user signs up. This will make it so that there is no chance of being kicked out of a survey half way through due being screened out (a large problem with current survey engines).
The application will also have a community aspect. It will allow user’s to share certain answers with the community. The answer will work like a discussion post and can be liked, commented on, or saved. The answers that can be shared will be responses to more controversial or thought provoking topics and will be chosen ahead of time by the moderation team. Users will also be able to add friends and be able to view their friend’s old answers that they chose to post.
What makes us different from all the other survey applications:
– The ability to do one or many questions in one sitting
– Users wont ever be screened out of a survey halfway through
– Ability to speak or write survey answers
– Community aspect
