Grid Update – April 1, 2016

At G2 Crowd, we’re always looking for new ways to make software buying easier. We’re excited to introduce our newest Grid℠ feature, based on several academic studies, to make you a smarter buyer and a better decision maker.

Introducing Grid Dance

We’ve added new, up-tempo background music to the Grid and animated product logos to inspire you to push back your office chair and take a time out to dance.

According to the New England Journal of Medicine, dancing has the strongest link to mental acuity compared to other physical activities. Specifically, “dancing integrates several brain functions at once — kinesthetic, rational, musical, and emotional — further increasing your neural connectivity” (, thus making you a smarter buyer.

With the intelligence gains from dancing while reading real user reviews, the new Grid also features music specifically selected to improve decision making. A study published in Computers in Human Behavior found that listening to faster music leads to better and more accurate decisions when it came to harder decision-making, like software buying.

Finally, numerous studies have found both that happiness affect consumer choices, and that dancing can lift your spirits. So go ahead, turn up the volume and hit the play button found above live Grids to see our special *limited time only* Grid Dance.
