Re: [Appsforkids] Recruiting Kids for User Testing Vanessa-

Hi!  I’m a market researcher who routinely conducts usability/playability studies and recruits for kid and app testing.  

If you ping me directly, I’ll be happy to give you (or anyone else on the list) tips.

Best,
Robin

HI Vanessa, 

Last summer we had a guest speaker at our iOS meetup who as a fourth grader had organized his classmates into an app testing service. He had several local clients including Disney Mobile and Smule.

Unfortunately, Scott Herhold's story about him is now offline.

The best way to contact Eliot would probably be to reach out to his dad, David Cowan. http://www.bvp.com/team/david-cowan

Hi Group!

I am working on developing an app for kids and we are at the point where we are ready to user test. We have a few recruits through family and friends, but I was hoping to get ideas of how some of you have recruited children for user testing.

Any help would be forever appreciated!

Thanks,
Vanessa Larco
