Prolific Assistant is a handy study notifier app!
It was developed by programmers outside the company, and we were delighted to take it over and start official support for it in Spring 2020. We know that many participants love the convenience of receiving notifications when new studies are posted.
The app gives a desktop notification for every new study found, displays how many studies are available on the extension icon, and shows the last time studies were checked for. You will also see on the app the average reward per hour and average completion time for studies.
You can set your own preferences such as how often you would like it to check for studies, the type of sound you would like when a new study is found, and the volume level for the sound alert.
