Abstract [en]

Mobile phone's offer enriched ways of communicating and have become devices with a very strong personal attachment for most users. While being personal communication devices, mobile phones displays limits with user interfaces more focused on features and distinct applications rather than providing rich interactions with a focus on people and communication between people. The present project explores interaction design for the mobile phone as a more personal and social device. It's key outcome is the Relify concept with it's affiliated prototype. Relify is a mobile user interface where presentation of people and communication is influenced by the character of the relationships with the people involved. Relify creates a personalized and flexible way for users to gain access to both personal communication and web feeds from third party services within a seamless user interface. This report describes the explorative design process leading to Relify, findings from field testing of it's prototype and design themes identified during the work. The work concludes that Relify demonstrates a personalized and fluent user interface with increased overview and a richer user experience. Among it's experiential qualities is an increased sense of connection, that can excite communication between people. In summarizing the work, considerations and implications on designing mobile user interfaces are discussed against the experiences of this project.
