Development and UI/UX Testing of an iTV Companion Application for Seniors

Telmo Silva, Martinho Mota, Carlos Silva

Abstract

This paper presents the results of testing a second-screen mobile application designed for senior users. This work is part of the +TV4E project, a larger study which focuses on promoting info-inclusion among the senior Portuguese population by directly sending them information regarding public and social services. The developed mobile application was integrated into this project as a complement for the already existing iTV application, which delivered informative videos to seniors, serving both as a second-screen app, by augmenting the TV experience and as a standalone application, by allowing users to access their videos outside their homes. Initially, a prototype application was developed with the objective of being presented to a group of seniors in order to identify the major interface flaws, subsequently, the prototype was improved taking into consideration the gathered feedback.
