This app is the demo of the findings of the research paper Interaction and Recognition Challenges in Interpreting Children’s Touch and Gesture Input on Mobile Devices. In MTAGIC project lab studies, we have found evidence that children have more difficulty successfully acquiring touch targets and making consistent gestures than adults do. We have also found out issues related to mobile application design and came up with recommendations for better UI design for mobile devices, especially for children. This open-source app is the demonstration of our findings. Please scroll down for screenshots and a demo video of the app. You can download the app (see Downloads section below) for better understanding of the recommendations. You can also download the source code to directly embed the code in your app!
