Announcing Usabilla Discover Announcements

Announcing Usabilla Discover

Every designer we know has a scattered selection of images, Evernote clippings, or bookmarks of inspirational design elements. We think collecting and curating UI elements on webpages can be much better and easier. That’s why we are happy to announce Usabilla Discover.

Usabilla Discover allows you to collect and curate UI elements, build and share your own UI library with HTML snippets (not just images) and follow other users for inspiration. Because every element is categorized and tagged, filtering is easy and powerful. For example, see positively rated headers by all users, or Yoeri’s favorite menus. You can also create and share your own lists with discoveries: see Paul’s quickly growing list overview, or my list of the best discoveries of the week.

We need your feedback Announcements

We need your feedback

Last week we launched Usabilla in private beta and we’re very happy with all the attention and useful feedback we received the past days. At this moment we can only invite a limited number of users to our beta. But we promise to send out invites to all subscribers as soon as possible.
We’re working hard on some big improvements and new features and we will release a big update in about 4 weeks.
We could really use the feedback of our beta testers to improve our service. Please send your feedback to support@usabilla.com or post a message at http://getsatisfaction.com/usabilla.

Press release

Dutch startup Usabilla brings visual feedback
The Dutch internet startup Usabilla makes online usability testing fast and simple with visual feedback. Unlike the existing tools for feedback, participants are not bothered with extensive questionnaires but share their opinion on a website by giving visual feedback. Usabilla provides visual feedback for websites and will be launching a private beta during The Next Web Conference, April 16th. Usabilla offers a new and user-friendly method to collect user feedback from a website. At Usabilla.com web-developers can start an online test within a couple of minutes. Participants answer basic questions about how they think and feel about a website by placing markers or notes on a transparent overlay on the web page. Participants can share their opinion on a webpage by answering questions like for example “What do you like?”, “What’s important for you?” or “What should be improved on this page?”.

Starting an experiment, inviting participants and visualizing results can be performed completely online and provides valuable insights on short notice. Usabilla makes usability accessible and offers a simple and user-friendly alternative for (online) user experience tests. Users can subscribe for a free plan to test their webpage or new concepts on a regular base. Collecting visual feedback and the solid analysis give interesting information about the attitude of users. This information can be directive for improvements or more extensive tests.

Launching private beta
Usabilla will launch its private beta at April 16th. Users can subscribe for a free beta invitation at www.usabilla.com .

I would love to meet you at The Next Web (April 15-16-17) in Amsterdam.


Nederlandse startup Usabilla introduceert visuele feedback
Usabilla maakt online feedback eenvoudig en gebruiksvriendelijk met visuele feedback. De Nederlandse internet-startup Usabilla lanceert donderdag 16 april de eerste besloten demo van een online testomgeving voor websites. Usabilla biedt een innovatieve en gebruiksvriendelijke methode om feedback te verzamelen over een website. Op de website Usabilla.com kunnen beheerders van een website binnen enkele minuten een online test starten. Respondenten worden niet lastig gevallen met uitgebreide vragenlijsten, maar geven hun oordeel over een website met behulp van visuele feedback. Zij beantwoorden vragen door markers of notities te plaatsen op een transparante laag over een webpagina. Respondenten beoordelen een pagina door te antwoorden op vragen zoals “Wat vind je goed?”, “Wat is belangrijk voor jou?” of “Wat zou verbeterd kunnen worden?”.
Het starten van een experiment, uitnodigen van respondenten en het visualiseren van de feedback gebeurt volledig online en biedt in korte tijd inzicht in de waardering van een gebruiker. Usabilla maakt usability onderzoek toegankelijk en biedt een eenvoudig en gebruiksvriendelijk alternatief voor (online) usability onderzoek. Gebruikers kunnen zich gratis registreren en hun webpagina of concepten met regelmaat online testen. Visuele feedback en duidelijke analyses geven inzicht in het oordeel van de gebruiker over een website. Dit verkregen inzicht geeft richting aan de verbetering van een website en kan aanleiding geven tot uitgebreidere testen.

Lancering beta
Usabilla lanceert op donderdag 16 april een eerste besloten test versie. Geïnteresseerden kunnen een gratis test account aanvragen op de website www.usabilla.com .

First testcase: The Next Web 2009 Announcements

First testcase: The Next Web 2009

The past months we’ve been working on a prototype for our online usability testsuite. The enthousiasm and efforts of our team are beginning to pay off. We’re making big progress on the both the backend and frontend.

Last week we kicked off with a basic test of our frontend and asked users to give their feedback on the website of The Next Web 2009. With the help of some early beta subscribers we collected an interesting dataset, which can be used to optimize our analysis. We could still use some extra input from others, so if you’re curious and want to be one of the first to start your own simple usability test in the future: sign up for our beta.
