A Flutter package for obtaining better feedback. It allows the user to provide interactive feedback directly in the app, by annotating a screenshot of the current page, as well as by adding text.

Motivation #

It is often quite hard to achieve a very good user experience. The most important aspect of creating a good user experience is to obtain and to listen to feedback of your user. Focus groups are one solution to this problem but it is quite expensive. Another solution is to use this library to obtain direct feedback of your users. This library is lightweight and easy to integrate and makes it really easy for your users to send valuable feedback to you.

By obtaining the feedback with an annotated image it is much easier for you get a good understanding of your users problem with a certain feature or screen of your app. It is like the saying "A picture is worth a thousand words" because a textual description can be interpreted in many ways which makes it harder to understand.

🚀 Getting Started #

Setup #

First, you will need to add feedback to your pubspec.yaml:

dependencies:
  flutter:
    sdk: flutter
  feedback: x.y.z # use the latest version found on pub.dev

Then, run flutter packages get in your terminal.

Use it #

Just wrap your app in a BetterFeedback widget. To show the feedback view just call BetterFeedback.of(context).show(...);. The callback gets called when the user submits his feedback.

import 'package:feedback/feedback.dart';
import 'package:flutter/material.dart';

void main() {
  runApp(
    BetterFeedback(
      child: const MyApp(),
    ),
  );
}

Provide a way to show the feedback panel by calling BetterFeedback.of(context)?.show(...); Provide a way to hide the feedback panel by calling BetterFeedback.of(context)?.hide();

Upload feedback #

To upload the feedback you should use, for example, a MultipartRequest.

🎨 Configuration & customization #

import 'dart:typed_data';
import 'package:feedback/feedback.dart';
import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'package:flutter_localizations/flutter_localizations.dart';

void main() {
  runApp(
    BetterFeedback(
      child: const MyApp(),
      theme: FeedbackThemeData(
        background: Colors.grey,
        feedbackSheetColor: Colors.grey[50]!,
        drawColors: [
          Colors.red,
          Colors.green,
          Colors.blue,
          Colors.yellow,
        ],
      ),
      localizationsDelegates: const [
        GlobalMaterialLocalizations.delegate,
        GlobalCupertinoLocalizations.delegate,
        GlobalWidgetsLocalizations.delegate,
        GlobalFeedbackLocalizationsDelegate(),
      ],
      localeOverride: const Locale('en'),
    ),
  );
}

Tips, tricks and usage scenarios #

  • You can combine this with device_info and package_info to get additional information about the users environment to better understand his feedback and debug his issues.
  • You can record the users navigation with a NavigatorObserver and send it as an addition to the feedback of the user. This way you know how the user got to the location shown in the screenshot.
  • Use it as a view for Sentrys user feedback to collect additional user information upon hitting an error.

Known Issues and limitations #

  • Platform views are invisible in screenshots (like webview or Google Maps)
  • Flutter for web is currently not supported, see this issue
