5 Best SDKs to Get the Best Out of In-App Surveys

5 Best SDKs to Get the Best Out of In-App Surveys

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.
