These sleds are ideal for usability testing. Watch your clients using your apps on the i-phone, i-pad, and Android devices.
Get great feedback on how users actually use your apps. Use this informa...
You spend months working on your Apps design, you finally think that you've got it perfect and you send it to the wild. Then you look at your analytics and find that people are not using it as they should - how dare they!
Save yourself a lot of time, prototype, first on paper, and then with simple UI experiments, test it with users. Record it, watch them struggle, watch them not click where they should, most important watch them show you what needs to be improved. It's humbling, and it's extraordinarily valuable.
However, sometimes, you just can't ask your customer to come into the office or you don't have everyone in the one location, whatever.
This is a great idea from a friend and a member of the 4D Pipeline team. Mark has made a simple mobile "sled", it simply positions a camera to record the users experience, where their fingers go, what they click on, etc.
Have your pilot customers and QA departments use it. Simple, effective.
Great idea Mark! Awesome job.
Also outstanding to see the reviews by Disney Interactive and ESPN!
