We want to know what you think!

We're looking for volunteers to help us with a usability study of a tablet application. We want to see if what we're building has the content and features our readers want, and that we're making it easy to use.

The study will include two round table discussions, where we'll share some of the ideas we've been working on, with a small group, to get feedback on features and navigation. We're also planning several individual sessions where we'll ask you to complete tasks on the application, to help us identify areas that can be improved.

We're giving $25 Target gift cards to all our participants as a "thank you" for helping us improve our site!

The study will be held on Tuesday, May 21st and Wednesday, May 22nd at the Lexington Herald-Leader office located at 100 Midland Avenue.

If you're interested in participating in one of the sessions, please apply through the following form. If you meet the volunteer criteria, we will contact you to confirm your place on the schedule.
