Software : ESMira

ESMira App

ESMira is a tool developed for research projects using Experience Sampling Method (ESM, AA, EMA, ...) designs. ESMira offers a very simple set-up process and ease of use, while being free, decentralized, and open-source. Study administrators can install ESMira on their own webspace without needing much technical knowledge, allowing them to remain independent from third-party services.

The app has several features for participants such as multiple language versions, personalization of the timing of prompts ("pings") or graphical feedback. It is also possible to send anonymous messages to the researcher. Participation in the study can be terminated at any time with the option "quit study".

ESMira can be installed free of charge via the Play Store on Android smartphones or on iPhones via the App Store .
