What can you use the app for?

Survey Legend is an online survey application that uses images only as answers. It may be used for any kind of survey in which the image can accurately reflect the answer to the question that is being asked.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

SurveyLegend was founded in December of 2010 by CEO Jasko Mahmutovic, Johan Jeraeus, Rich Wahl, Robert Michalski, and Shane Doherty. The offices are based in Sweden. Site traffic indicates between 100-1,000 unique visitors per month.

What are the differences to other apps?

Surveys are generally less colorful and playful than Survey Legend and do not always contain images. The downside is that these surveys depend on images because text cannot be added.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

The homepage of the website features a video overview of creating a survey with Survey Legend. Survey creation is a step-by-step process that is very easy to follow. The Create stage includes giving the survey a name, layout, and theme. It is important to note that at this step, it appears that questions may only be yes/no questions, but that each option is considered a choice for the yes/no answer. Next, the user enters the survey question. The user may change the background and color of the font here.

The Info tab offers the option to collect gender, age group, and any additional demographic details that the user wishes to enter. The next step is entering Thank You text and email address collection. These are optional.

To activate the survey, at least one image must be uploaded. Unfortunately, captions are not an option for survey answers, so the images must accurately represent the answers that the user wants.

After Previewing the survey, it may be shared to Twitter via link, Facebook direct post or the user may share it directly. During testing, the direct share for Facebook did not work (after approving the app). It was tried several times, but did not show up on the user's wall. Sharing the hosted survey using the provided link worked easily, but the title did not appear on the survey, so those trying to answer had no idea what the question was.

The bottom line is that this is a good idea for a fun way to create picture surveys, but there are definite issues that need to be addressed.

How does the registration process work?

To register, the user provides an email address and password or can sign in via Google, Yahoo, Facebook, Linkedin, or Twitter. Though the user is not directed to do so, they must click on the link in the verification email for full site access

Once logged in, the user provides a username (one is provided, but may be changed), password from verification email, full name, and mailing address. Attempts to change the password yielded multiple error messages.

What does it cost to use the application?

Survey Legend provides five different plans for users to choose from. The Starter package is free, Pro package is $9 per month, Pro+ package is $99 per year, Business package is $29 per month, and Business Plus package is $299 per year.

All of the packages offer image based surveys; customizable layout, custom thank you page, collection of survey users' gender and age; survey progress bar; visual templates; varied voting systems; integration with blogs, sites, popups, Facebook, Twitter, email, or hosted surveys; real time results, results viewable in tables or charts; export results as PDF, Excel, or CSV files.

The Startup, Business, and Business+ plans offer geographic voter tracking.

Differences between plans include the following: Startup offers 100 total responses per month, Pro offers 1000 responses, Pro+ offers unlimited responses, Business offers 2000 responses, and Business plus responses are unlimited. Startup offers 5 total collected emails per month, Pro: 200 emails per month, Business 500 emails per month, Pro+ and Business+ have unlimited emails. The Startup plan contains the Survey Legend logo on the survey. Pro and Business feature a Survey Legend link, the Pro+ and Business+ are white label. The Startup plan contains third party advertising, the other plans feature the user's own logo or banner. All plans except Startup contain link in the logo or banner.

Who would you recommend the application to?

This would be an easy, fun way to present surveys. It may have business applications, but without captioning or text adding options for descriptors, it may not be useful. During testing, there were some bugs such as the survey not sharing correctly from the associated social media app - in this case Facebook - and the survey question did not appear on the hosted survey page. Attempts to sign in from a browser other than Chrome could not be accomplished and the account was locked after 5 tries.

  • Surveys for sharing via multiple outlets
  • Real time results
  • Result filtering options
  • Fully customizable
  • Cloud storage for hosted surveys
