Usability testing fills a critical need in understanding users’ responses to your website’s UX, but the inherent subjectiveness of the video/audio feedback format means that it can be difficult to distill meaning from a large number of responses. Your testers are writing you a novel with their words – the plot is no secret, but what’s their underlying theme? Fortunately, a tool already exists to consolidate and synthesize individual testers’.. Read More
We recently upgraded the software to support finer age-based demographics, and also “fixed” our notion of demographics on education and social networks usage. Previously, we only allowed the choices of the following very specific age groups: 18-34, 35-55, and above 55, which was fine for many users.

TryMyUi adds video-indexing to quickly mark task positions in the video, and indicate the task duration.
Responding to your requests, we’ve added a couple of nifty features on trymyui.com.

Prototypes & Wireframes When creating a new test in TryMyUI, you can now specify if the test is for a live site, prototype or wireframe. We will instruct the users accordingly to set their expectations. This is important to guide testers for quality feedback, since not everything will be functional on.. Read More
We provide a free test for new users. However, we do ask that the user have a valid credit card. Although we don’t charge the credit card (we simply make sure it’s valid), a couple of our prospective customers have been upset that we ask for a credit card at all. We agree that in the world of free, or even freemium services, it’s unusual to ask for a credit.. Read More
