movisensXS Updates December 2016

We are happy to announce another huge update to the movisensXS Platform. 

This update is all about the participant experience.
Please read the following changes carefully!

The update of the movisensXS app (Version 1.1) will happen tomorrow, 02.12.2016.
As always, if you are running a productive study, if possible, please disable auto-updates.

Participant Feedback about the Study Process

If you define a start and end date for a participant in a study the participant now gets feedback in the app showing him when the study will start and when it is ended. 

This also helps to see if a smartphone is not performing correctly.

Improved margins when using images together with scales

When you show images e.g. above a likert scale with a "Multi Item Screen", the image is aligned to the buttons. We improved the margins of all items to line up nicely in a "Multi Item Screen".

User feedback when starting a large study

We improved the startup speed of a study tremendously. But apart from that we also included a loading screen if the start of the study takes a bit on older devices with large studies. It looks like the following (this is in slow motion).
