      Methodology

      This report is based on unmoderated remote user testing of 20 health and wellbeing apps. Each app was tested by 5 participants, so the report covers a total of 100 user testing sessions.

      Remote unmoderated user testing is an asynchronous research method. That means participants receive a list of tasks and questions. They interact with the app in their own time and on their own devices. They record their interaction with the app and provide verbal feedback about their experience using a screen and voice recording application. The findings are based on qualitative analysis of the recordings submitted by the test participants. Submitted recordings tend to be around 20 minutes long. In total, about 30 hours of video recordings were analysed to inform the guidelines presented in this report.

      Participants were recruited through an online testing platform and a mix of behavioural and demographic criteria was applied to ensure the relevance of the feedback:

      • All of the 8 fitness and nutrition apps were tested with participants who indicated that they had searched for fitness or meal planning resources within the 3 months before the study
      • 6 out of 9 mental health apps were tested with participants who indicated that they had searched for mental health resources within the 3 months before the study
      • 3 out of 9 mental health apps were tested with participants representing a general audience (without special pre-screening criteria)
      • Demographic criteria were applied to select female participants to test all 3 female health apps

      The age range of participants varied from 18 to 58. Most participants were based in English-speaking countries (UK, Canada or the USA) with some participants from Jordan, India and Brazil. All sessions were conducted in English.
