Training applications and their ability to motivate during exercise : a qualitative study of how mobile technology helps to motivate the user during exercise (English)
Abstract [sv]

Smartmobilens användande har successivt ökat och blivit en central del i vår vardag. I och med detta har antalet olika applikationer ökat och numera finns det en mängd olika typer av applikationer som tillfredsställer användarens behov. I den här studien har vi därför försökt ta reda på om träningsapplikationer har förmågan att motivera användaren vid träning. Vi har observerat fem kvinnor och tre män, med varierande erfarenheter av träningsapplikationer, som har deltagit i en fyra veckor lång studie bestående av två faser. Under Fas 1 har respondenterna laddat ned två valfria träningsapplikationer som de testat och under Fas 2 har de använt en specifik applikation. Under användandet har varje respondent antecknat sina tankar och erfarenheter, som senare använts vid en kombinerad observation och intervju. Resultatet visar att träningsapplikationers förmåga att motivera varierar beroende på användare och att det finns ett intresse för att ta del av statistik och förbättringar.

Abstract [en]

The smart phone’s (mobile) usage has gradually increased and is now an important part of our daily life. Due to this, the amount of applications that can be downloaded keeps on growing. This includes features that will satisfy your every need. In this study, we have tried to find out if training applications have the ability to motivate the user during exercise. Our study contained five women and three men, with varying experiences of training applications. The participants completed a four-week study consisting of two phases. During Phase 1 they got to choose two different training applications they wanted to try while in Phase 2 the participants were given one specific application. While using the applications, every participant took notes of their thoughts and experiences. These notes were later used in a combined observation and interview session. The result showed that the applications ability to motivate varies by user and that there is an interest in taking part of the statistical analysis and improvements.
