Observing the Context of Use of a Media Player on Mobile Phones using Embedded and Virtual Sensors

AbstractIn this paper, we discuss how contextual data acquired from multiple embedded mobile phone sensors can provide insights into the mobile user experience. We report from two field studies where contextual information were obtained from N=21 mobile phone users in a 28 week duration, to derive information about participant context. In the second study our focus was on observing mobile interaction with a media player application over time and we discuss how the captured contextual data can lead to a better understanding of the context in which mobile applications and devices are used. We argue that this information can provide valuable insights to the design of mobile applications and user interfaces.
