QuestionPro has partnered with TryMyUI to provide the usability testing platform. TryMyUI has a panel of over 125,000 testers across the globe to provide in-depth usability testing.

Can I target testers in a specific language or country?

At this point no. We however envision adding this functionality in the next few months.

Yes. TryMyUI will send you a notification with a link to a recorded video.
