Title: Improving the Usability of Mobile Applications Through Context-awareness
Author: Davies, Donald J.
Abstract: The usability of mobile applications is threatened by limited input/output capabilities and varied access situations (Bertini et al., 2005). Through context-awareness, applications are programmed to respond to contextual information as an input source (Schmidt et al., 1999). Based on analysis of literature published between 1998 and 2006, techniques to both interpret and apply contextual input to improve mobile application usability are identified among four primary context types: location, identity, time, and activity. The author of this study is a recipient of the AIM Director's Distinguished Capstone Award.
