Analysis and design of smartphone applications for older adults for Windows Phone 7


This project focuses on the analysis and design of smartphone applications for the S4S (Smartphones for Seniors) project.

The work begins with a thorough user research (including literature review and possibly interviews with seniour adults) to formalize the requirements of S4S. Afterwards, the gathered requirements in the form of people, scenarios, and case studies which will be used throughout the project will be formalized. Depending on the size of the user research phase, prototype solutions for the problems previously identified will be proposed. This project has a target group that is not the typical senior adult, but only those 55 years of age and above.

So, it is necessary to carry out user research and gather the requirements for this age group, as well as to define their problems, an issue to be discussed further in the project.
