Abstract

  Usage of mobile technologies is making an essential part of our daily life. User experience depends on usefulness and usability of an application or technology. These both concepts are measured with high degree of quality when check the functionality of a mobile service provided by a mobile application. Leading technologies make interactions easy and increase user quality of experience. For older adults mobile technologies must be easily understandable, meaningful, engaging and motivating them towards technology. For achieving the usability goals mobile technologies should design carefully and used by the older adults effectively. Mobile design interface matter a lot for all these concepts.

Keywords: User Experience; Older Adults; Mobile UX Design; Usability; Mobile Applications; User Centered Design (USD)
