Users can earn points for completing a variety of tasks, and then spend them on products from the app store.
The mobile application “Test Moscow”, which conducts intellectual tests, passes quizzes and announces events for young people, has updated a store with gifts for users. Now they have access to four types of sweatshirts, two types of socks and two variants of pop-sockets – accessories for a mobile phone, as well as stickers and badges.
You can purchase products using points that members earn by completing assignments, educational tests, registering for events or inviting their friends to participate. You can get stickers for 250 points, for 750 – popsockets, the participant will receive socks by exchanging a thousand points, and for three thousand points you can buy a sweatshirt.
The drawings for the new sweatshirts were developed by the project participants themselves: they drew logos that can be placed on clothes and published them on the official pages of the project on social networks. The organizers received more than 100 proposals, the best of which was voted for by the users of the application. The winners’ work was applied to sweatshirts, which can now be purchased in the app store. The organizers of the project plan to continue this kind of creative collaboration with users.
In the near future, the application will also receive technical updates. Many of them were proposed by Muscovites during a vote in a crowdsourcing project.
“We are always working on upgrading our application. In the near future, users will have battles in tests – the participants who give the most correct answers to the tasks will earn the most points. In addition, they will be able to leave feedback on attending events, their assessment. We plan to integrate a tab with a list of vacancies for students into the application, and a multi-level discount program will also appear. It is as follows: you gain points, which, depending on the number, make it possible to receive discounts and special offers from the project partners, ”said the project manager Evgeny Lebed.
He also noted that in the application it will be possible to track the activity of participants for a selected period: day, week or month. And besides the general rating of the participants, there will be a rating for students of one university. In addition, the registration form for youth events in the capital will be modernized. With the help of the “Test Moscow” application, they can be accessed in a few clicks: the user will not have to constantly fill out contact forms, and at the entrance it will be enough to show the QR code from the application.
Now more than 15 thousand students from 121 Moscow universities are registered in the application. Most of the participating students study at the Russian State University named after A.N. Kosygin, MIREA – Russian Technological University and Moscow Aviation Institute.
Mobile application “Test Moscow” is a joint project of the Moscow Department of Information Technologies and the Committee for Public Relations and Youth Policy. It is one of the projects of the Moscow Youth office, which analyzes and determines the current needs of the capital’s youth, support for youth communities and non-profit organizations, as well as the development and implementation of events and campaigns.
