QuestionPro has debuted a new online survey tool to help you conduct surveys using smart phones and iPads, and even when there is no connection to the Internet. SurveyPocket is a mobile survey application that allows for the gathering of survey data in the field by using a smart phone or iPad as the data-gathering equipment piece. The application is an innovative tool that helps you collect and store data – with or without a wireless connection.

What is the best application for SurveyPocket?

On-site Surveys – Using mobile devices, you can send out a team of interviewers to an event where you gather the survey responses live. Examples of these include prospect information gathering at trade shows, customer satisfaction surveys at movies or entertainment venues, and political exit polls.

Training and Evaluations – Use SurveyPocket to collect feedback after a training session or workshop. Gathering the data at the heel of the session will ensure the most accurate responses.
