Result of first prototype testing
In demographic information, both 2 students are same.
Age : 25-30
Gender : female
Nationality : Taiwan
Course : MA EMCA
When they saw our form, they understood what the form is for. Both of them replied our service would be helpful to find roommate in the future.
When they use internet for house hunting, pictures are problems.(too small, not clear, irrelevant… they want clear and relevant picture)
Positive features of our project : match finding, convenience(easy-to-use)
Negative : cost is too expensive, screen is too small to see map
Recommendations by users
Suggested criteria : zone(instead of area), gender, age, nationality, pet, bill included, own bathroom, living room and dining room for students(some houses don’t have it), heating
For activation, normally they activate services through email. They are not familiar to mobile code activation. We should more think about activation process.
Login page : they suggested restricted number of text of ID and password. Basically they moved cursor by using center navi key and used center OK key as enter key. 1 user suggested that login screen is divided into 2 – ID screen and password screen.
In the detailed screen, they need more pictures, not only 1 picture.(users tend to want many and detailed pictures)
In the map screen, they wanted zoom in and out option.
