Abstract

This paper presents Wellness Diary (WD) mobile application for S60 mobile phones and the user evaluations that were carried out in the laboratory premises. WD is meant for wellness management. We concentrate on the observational data and user feedback on the weight, exercise and eating modules of the application, which were perceived to be the most interesting for the participants. The purpose of the evaluation was to improve the usability of the application before starting a long term pilot with over 100 users. In this paper, users' perceptions of the modules are discussed and suggestions for improvements are presented.
