When choosing live audience software for presentations and meetings, ease of access is a major consideration. Some presenters still use clickers, but this specialized hardware is outdated and requires much more audience preparation and labor than convenient mobile options.
Nowadays, most audience response systems allow participants to contribute via an internet-enabled personal device, whether it be a smartphone, tablet, or laptop. These options allow audience members to provide feedback by downloading an app, sending a text message, or entering a customized URL.
Why Go Mobile?
Allowing audiences to use their own devices to provide live feedback poses a few significant advantages:
When it comes to choosing a device, smartphones are often preferred because they are a portable, intuitive, effective, and low-liability means to gather feedback. Most mobile live audience software is also customizable, making personal device solutions highly flexible.
Although feedback can be gathered via text messaging or downloadable app, browser-based software rises to the top as a highly preferred method, as it offers the path of least resistance for all users.
The popularity of browser-based software has risen along with personal mobile device use. Browser-based live audience software is accessible via a single personalized URL.
Today, most people have an internet-enabled smartphone, tablet, or laptop on hand, so there is almost no barrier to access. Browser-based software is more accessible, more effective, and easier to maintain than downloadable apps. Consider the following advantages posed by browser-based solutions:
