Engaging with users - mobile diary studies

We gather user insights through a smorgasbord of techniques from one on one usability testing through to co-creation workshops.

One of the techniques we use to specifically understand user behaviour in the natural environment (ethnographic research) is mobile diary studies.

There are a variety of mobile diary study apps available, which enable participants to write, take a video or capture photos of their everyday experiences in real time.

The key here is that we get raw, “in the moment” experiences.

For World Usability Day we decided to run a mobile diary study with our attendees to get them engaged prior to joining us on the day.  Read our article to learn about different methods available and our views on how well they support your studies.
