AnswerGarden Newsletter 6: Summertime!

Summertime is here! Time for a welcome break from school or work, for rest and relaxation, but also for creative projects, away-days and summer courses. The past year has been a great one for AnswerGarden. We are truly humbled by how millions of you have embraced our service and shared AnswerGarden at work, in school, at conferences, in workshops and even at a music festival as a live-audience response tool during a DJ-set.


And even though we encountered a few tough challenges this year (such as AnswerGarden downtime due to a new server, and sustaining financial stability of the AnswerGarden venture while keeping our service affordable (free) for educators) there were also many improvements: a new ad-free iPad app, a Full-screen mode combined with the option to refresh your AnswerGarden automatically, the possibility to edit your AnswerGarden directly during a live session, and even wipe your AnswerGarden clean with the press of a single button.


To celebrate, you can now get the ad-free iPad app for the discounted price of $1.99* during the whole month of July! This also applies to the educational bulk discount.


We will of course continue to make AnswerGarden better. As AnswerGarden cannot thrive without your invaluable input, please keep sending us your wishes on how we can improve your experience at work or in the classroom!


We would like to conclude with a massive Thank You! from us two at CreativeHeroes to all of you who partnered with the AnswerGarden service: the teachers, the designers, the keynote speakers and of course all respondents.


We wish you a great summer!
