Abstract

Designing usable applications for coping with civic challenges can be extremely difficult without an appropriate design environment. We explore a novel application design process based on the analysis of real citizen workshops, and propose U.App, a design environment that allows citizens to create urban applications based on the process. We expect that the proposed environment will facilitate citizens' daily activities for addressing urban issues and extend the possibility of citizen-centered mobile applications.
