 Modern mobile phones often offer Internet access and an Internet browser. So what could be more obvious than using these smartphones for surveys? There are three different cases: Modern mobile phones often offer Internet access and an Internet browser. So what could be more obvious than using these smartphones for surveys? There are three different cases:
  
 +  * ** The questionnaire should work everywhere**\\ Often, participants should just be able to complete the questionnaire - regardless of whether they are using a laptop, tablet or smartphone.
 +  * **Questionnaire for mobile devices only**\\ Some study designs, such as diary studies or mobile experience samples, are designed to be completed on the mobile device only.
 +  * ** Questionnaire for computers only**\\ Other study designs are unsuitable for smartphones,​ e.g. when a task requires a great deal of information to be displayed on the screen at the same time or when response times are to be recorded at the touch of a button. In this case, you want to make sure that the questionnaire is not filled in on the smartphone.

 **Note:** Not every questionnaire is suitable for filling out on the small display of a smartphone. Long scale batteries (more than 10 items) are no more fun on the small display than long question texts/​instructions or long stimulus texts. Not to mention the fact that you like to fill out a 5-minute questionnaire on the bus, but probably not a questionnaire that takes 30 minutes. Therefore, scientific questionnaires are often not suitable for the small mobile phone display, regardless of the presentation. **Note:** Not every questionnaire is suitable for filling out on the small display of a smartphone.

 It is possible to submit a completely different questionnaire to smartphone users than to other users. This can be useful if, for example, other content is to be displayed on a larger scale and/or if the questionnaire is to use a completely different layout for smartphone users (e.g. "SoSci Smartphone"​). It is possible to submit a completely different questionnaire to smartphone users than to other users.
