Loop Media

methinks is, quite simply, a life-saver. I needed to test a new app direction a week before launch and without methinks, I’d never have learned what our customers thought of our app. Methinks turns a process that was 8 days a year ago into an 8 hour process today. F*#!ing amazing.

Aaron Burcell, CMO, Loop Media


methinks is an amazing solution for mobile games validation -- through the app we can share a game, schedule group play, and methinks takes care of the recruiting and qualifying of testers, post-play interviews, and they even analyze the feedback, and annotate video interviews with players. methinks is the perfect package of user research for our needs
