SUMMARY:
This report was part of a larger usability venture involving the iWestern app (later renamed the WesternU Mobile app) at the University of Western Ontario. The purpose of the study was to evaluate a proposed functionality for the app: the provision of bus scheduling information via the London Transit Commission public data feed. An Android prototype, developed by Western's Mobile Applications Group (MAG), was used for testing purposes.

The research was carried out as a means of fulfilling the requirements of LIS 9706: Human-Computer Interaction, which was a component of the Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) programa at Western. All work was completed under the guidance of Dr. Lu Xiao, head of the Human-Information Interaction Research Lab (HIIL) in Western's Faculty of Information and Media Studies (FIMS).
