Mobile Tourist Information Applications: A User Requirements Study
2011 (English)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

Through a growing market of mobile tourism applications, users nowadays have the option to pick and choose among a number of alternatives. The user‟s expectations on this type of application can therefore be higher than ever before. In this paper we try to identify what functional requirements travellers and tourists have on a mobile tourist application.The results of this study show that personalization and context awareness play an important part in mobile application development. When it comes to functionality of a mobile application designed for supporting tourists and travellers it seems like different map and information retrieval functions are the most important, while social functions such as integration with social networks and communication with friends are less favoured.
