CNET Editors' review

WinSurvey produces online surveys that can be simple to fill out and helpful to producers. While creating the surveys was a cinch, users may need to spend a little time learning how to publish them.

At first glance, the interface appears intimidating, with its many commands and tabs. Thankfully, creating the actual surveys was a simple and intuitive process; however, publishing them was a bit of a different matter. Whether we wanted a survey that had users fill in radio buttons, essay answers, or ratings, we were able to customize our own survey by following the wizard the program provides. Adding polls and recipients to our survey required only a few extra clicks. The only place where WinSurvey drags its feet is with publishing. Based on selections we made, a trip to the Help file was needed to ensure our work could be published to the online server. Once we figured it out, we were pleased by how fast the surveys published.

The 30-day trial period is more than enough time to learn the program. While WinSurvey has a few snags in the overall flow, we were pleased with its simplicity and recommend it for download.

    "Total waste of money"

    May 28, 2012  |   By msramjauny@intnet.mu

    Version: WinSurvey 3.3.1

    Pros

    None, nada, ziltch

    Cons

    Not intuitive
    Total waste of money
    Cannot copy / paste
    Very difficult to make it work
    Each time I try to use it, I get frustrated
    Support do not answer mails

    Summary

    I bought a licensed copy from Winsurvey. It is anything but intuitive to use. If you use the software as is the end results look poor and unprofessional. To try (Yes, I say try... because actually doing it was almost impossible) to customise the look and feel of your questionnaire will be almost impossible. It has an html editor inside. You cannot copy and paste into it. If you have previous lines of codes from other surveys, you cannot paste it in here. You need to type each letter, each line and so on. Very tedious to use. Very stupid design. Not at all intuitive. For me apart from being a total waste of money, it was also a lot of frustration. I sent mails to their support that were never answered.
