One of the best ways to build an app that fits your users’ wants and needs is to ask them what they want directly. However, not every user is ready to help you in that matter. Where should you ask your users for their opinions? Where they already are – in your app! Getting people to respond has a higher likelihood in your app than on the mobile web. Mobile web surveys have a response rate of 1-3% while the rate increases to 13% with in-app surveys. How can you approach your app users to ask their opinions? We explained this in a previous post. Check it out to learn more “Avoiding “Skip”: How to Ask for Feedback. In this blog post, we compiled the best SDKs you can integrate into your mobile app to present in-app surveys and improve your app according to our users’ ideas.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
