Abstract

Expert-based usability inspection methods are well established; the heuristic method in particular is widely known for being fast, relatively inexpensive and easy to learn. However, traditional heuristics are not easily applied to the mobile panorama. This paper is concerned with preliminary work in the design of a set of heuristics that are tailored to the evaluation of native smartphone applications. In this work, Nielsen's original set of heuristics as well as research in the field of usability evaluation for mobile computing were analysed and used to derive a set of heuristics for the evaluation of native smartphone applications.
