What can you use the app for?

Usabilla provides website designers and owners with a great deal of insight into the effectiveness of their designs. The application allows users to choose web pages or submit images to be tested. The user also supplies a list of questions that Usabilla will ask the test participants. Participants then view the user’s web page or image and answer with notes and points right on top of the image or page. The user is given the test results and can visually see areas that need improvement or those that fared well. Usabilla helps website designers find usability errors and measure performance. They can also gather feedback with helpful notes that can help them move in the right direction to maximize their website to provide an optimum user experience.
