Do you like recording movies on your smartphone and sharing them with your friends? Would you like to visit the Edinburgh Festival Fringe on Aug. 10-12? Do you have a smartphone with Android 4.1/iOS 7.0 or higher? Then you may become a test reporter!

You as a test reporter would use the Moments App (see below) to record a number of clips of performances on one or more days in the period Aug. 10-12, and allow us to use the recorded content for research purposes. As a thank-you gift test reporters will receive a GBP 50 voucher, either for Edinburgh Festivals tickets/store or for mobile phone pay-as-you-go top-up.

The Moments App provides a total experience of the event, as seen through the eyes of selected visitors. They capture short clips of their experiences – moments a professional camera might not see. The clips are sent to a web platform, where an automatic screening of content quality takes place. Users who are logged in with the app can access the web site allowing them to explore the content collected by all users.

By being a test reporter you would contribute to the work of ICoSOLE by testing the app and collecting content for future research at the Edinburgh Festival.

If you are interested in becoming a test reporter, please send an email to icosole-office@joanneum.at, including:

  • your full name
  • the brand and model of you mobile phone, and the Android/iOS version
  • the days and times (morning, afternoon, evening) when you are available in the period Aug. 10-12

The number of test reporters is limited so be quick to secure your spot!
