mobileQ: A free user-friendly application for collecting experience sampling data.

Journal Contribution - Journal Article

In this article we introduce mobileQ, which is a free, open-source platform that our lab has developed to use in experience sampling studies. Experience sampling has several strengths and is becoming more widely conducted, but there are few free software options. To address this gap, mobileQ has freely available servers, a web interface, and an Android app. To reduce the barrier to entry, it requires no high-level programming and uses an easy, point-and-click interface. It is designed to be used on dedicated research phones, allowing for experimenter control and eliminating selection bias. In this article, we introduce setting up a study in mobileQ, outline the set of help resources available for new users, and highlight the success with which mobileQ has been used in our lab.
