Managed to get ahold of a tablet again and tried this out. Couple problems... without a keyboard the software keyboard blocks the image too much and there is not enough time to enter anything for the image. You should also add a timer or some indication of when the page is going to change imo.

Thanks for the feedback, I agree it is difficult to keep up with the test typing on screen with a tablet. Will need to scale down the pic and/or slow it down when onscreen keyboard is present. If you notice from the screenshots, I moved the textbox up to the top for this reason on the tablet. The timer is a good idea, might also just make it wait for the user response before proceeding, thanks for the good feedback and ideas.

That's pretty hilarious. Would be good if you could filter out the garbage entries tho. Also have you implemented any way of filtering objectionable comments? Also might be an interesting concept to train a neural network from this data then you can analyze the people that are marking the results.

Long term goal would include some automated diagnosis and statistical analysis of the results. A bunch of the stuff in the screenshots was just me throwing text in as I was testing, it's live in the store now, I put in a couple seed responses and I'll let the world take it from there. We'll see how people behave, I made it 16+, some of that response might be an actual part of the experiment.
