Incidental information and mobile search
There is much interest in providing effective mobile search tools. Our focus is the value of in situ sharing of users’ mobile search activity. The QnotA prototype displays other people’s queries about locations in an attempt to both provide users with an enriched sense of the places they visit, and to accommodate the limited input and output capabilities of many mobile platforms. We present the prototype and user experiences it affords. A study has been performed which allowed us to gather logged usage data and subjective participant information via diary and interview protocols. We report on findings that give insights as to the use and usefulness of the approach. KEYWORDS Mobile search, location, collaborative interfaces, evaluation.
