SPEAKER: Erich Grunewald (EIT ICT Master School)
There exists a wealth of methods to facilitate the learning of people's opinions, values and desires – including polls, surveys, studies, focus groups and so on. The FlashPoll project aims to shorten the distance between citizens and those who wish to learn about them with the use of a location-based mobile polling app.
So how best to design the interaction of such an application? And how do iPhone and Android users differ in terms of attitude, usage patterns and so on, in the context of such an app?
Our research consisted of the design and development an iPhone version of the FlashPoll tool, as well as a subsequent user study, wherein 40 participants (22 Android users and 18 iPhone users) spent a week with the FlashPoll app, reporting their experiences through daily diary entries.
I present, briefly, the completed FlashPoll iOS app, and go into some more detail regarding the various findings from the user study, ending up with a set of eight design guidelines for future apps related to location-aware polling.
