Wellness in the city: Design and evaluation of mobile apps for health and wellness
There are literally hundreds of thousands of smartphone apps for health and wellness available on the app stores. But do they work? How do we know which ones are right for us? Which ones have been validated? And would you use one your doctor prescribed or would you rather listen to your friends and social network when it comes to managing your own personal health and wellbeing? This talk will describe some of the design and evaluation of mobile apps that we have done in computer and information sciences as part of the newly formed Digital Health and Wellness Group and highlight some of the on going challenges and opportunities for the future development of apps for health and wellness.
