Great Idea, Needs Work
This app is a great idea because it seems to quantify a qualitative subject. While it does seem to hit all the most important aspects of ethical decision making, it is quite vague in application to actual ethical situations. It also only breaks situations down into 5 steps, with one slider bar per step--leading to an overall decision made by five sliding bars. Personally, I do not trust ethical decisions being made using 5 slider bars. As this set up currently remains, it is difficult to break things down by stakeholder, or within a subset. One is forced to make an overall decision on the justness, for example, of a situation which may be quite just for some stakeholders and the opposite for others. The way in which this app allows the user weights certain steps versus others is a great addition that helps me trust the decision making tool more so, and it is quite helpful to receive an overall score and recommendation at the end.
I have an iPhone 8. This app doesn’t work on it, at all. I get to the first screen where you’re supposed to enter a group and then go through and make your selections, and I can’t get past that first page. Once I click on the box to enter content the continue option goes away.
