Research about activity and food logging

gadget research

Do you use an app as part of your training or diet? What motivates you to do so? How do you use and share logging information? Do you have privacy concerns about how your data is used?

 

We are a group of researchers from the University of Sheffield investigating how runners use activity tracking and food logging apps. The research will help understand how and why people log their activity and will contribute to improving future app design.

 

Please share your views with us by completing this short online survey, it will only take 10 minutes of your time.

 

The research has received ethical approval from the Information School, University of Sheffield.

 

For further information please email us here.

 

Thank you for your participation,
Pam Mckinney, Andrew Cox, Laura Sbaffi.
