Participants Needed for Study on Mobile Device Use and Habits

We are seeking 50 to 100 volunteers who use a personal mobile device with a touchscreen on a daily basis. This is for a study that includes a brief 5- to 10-minute electronic survey that will ask questions about your daily use of your mobile device with a touchscreen. Following the survey, your mobile device touchscreen will be swabbed and cleaned with a touchscreen-safe wipe. The expected total time commitment is 30 minutes.

Participants will receive free snacks of their choice including top-brand candy, chips, and cookies. In addition, participants will be entered to win one of two $20 gift cards to either Hurts Donut Company or Andy's Frozen Custard. A drawing for the gift cards will take place at the completion of the study after all participants have been recruited.

If interested, please contact Meghan Jones at
