Abstract

Mobile services can be accessed in many ways, e.g. via SMS, WAP and a voice call. The time and effort needed to get information via these methods are different. This paper shows results from a study that measured the time and effort (number of clicks) to access driving instructions provided by three different types of mobile services. The fastest and the most efficient method was a voice call. Voice services are easy to use and can be used with all phones; this maximises their potential market.
