Feature highlights

Experience Sampling
Deliver in the moment questions via notification. Participants tap the notification allowing them to answer questions right away. Flexible scheduling options and the ability to create multiple question/schedule combinations accommodate even the most complex study designs.


Participants can respond to questions in the mobile app on their own time. This feature is useful for event-based reporting, daily diary studies, or providing always available intervention materials.

Flexible notification scheduling options allow you to tailor data gathering to fit your study design. Questions can be scheduled for delivery at specific (fixed) times or at random times within specified time windows.

Fixed Example
: Send questions at 8 am, 12pm, and 5pm to study mealtimes.

Random Example
: Send questions at three random times between 8am and 5pm, at least 90 minutes apart, to assess mood fluctuation throughout the workday.

Immediate Follow-Up: “Branching”
Use branching to ask immediate follow-up questions based off how your participants respond.

Delayed Follow-Up: “Triggering”
Use participants’ responses to trigger a later notification and follow-up questions. There are two types of triggers. One type sends questions at a later point in time (e.g., 90 minutes later), and the other type of trigger activates a whole new schedule of questions (e.g., once per day for a week).

Once participants load the RealLife Exp app and study protocol onto their phones, all data collection can be handled offline. This allows data gathering to go on reliably, regardless of whether participants have connectivity problems. When participants connect to WiFi or have a cellular signal, their responses are automatically uploaded to the server.
Offline Data Collection

Participant data can be gathered using an anonymous mode which allows them to engage with the mobile app without providing personally identifiable information.

Anonymous Data Collection

Participants can easily download our RealLife Exp mobile app to their phone using rapid onboarding via an email link or QR code, or by App Store Search. Want to see how rapid onboarding works? Tap this link from your mobile phone, or scan the QR Code below to load the app and a demo study protocol.
