We have several different methods to stream surveys to you!
  • Desktop Widget
  • Windows Gadget

Widget? Gadget? This sounds like a toy shop!
Sort of, yes! There are a variety of technologies we use, so there are a variety of names. We wanted to give you fun and convenient ways to access your surveys online, from one place.
What is the difference between the applications?
Only their appearance, and their back-end technology. Each SurveyTicker application does the same thing: stream surveys to you, and serves as a gateway to your SurveyTicker account. This way you have a wider choice of which one you want to use.
