Hello,we are involved with a research project at the University of Washington. Our goal is to design an iPhone application for beginner/expert cooks. As we develop this design, we need to understand general user requirements, i.e. the cooking habits and trends in our society. By taking this survey, you can help us design this application better.The survey shouldn’t take more than 5 minutes. Thank you so much for your time. We greatly appreciate your help.

We’re looking for a few good iPhone Yelpers!
Hello, I’m involved with a research project at the University of Washington, and we are looking for ways to improve the Yelp for iPhone application.
Why do we need you?
Good question. We are following a user-centered design process; what that means is that we take user (that’s you) requirements and use those to drive the design, or redesign, of a product. We are holding a “Wants and Needs Analysis” (a kind of group brainstorming activity) at the UW to see what you want out of the application and how we can make it better.
What’s in it for me?
We will provide a delicious pizza lunch and non-alcoholic beverages to keep you focused and also we are giving away swag from our department (Human-centered Design Engineering). You will also receive great personal satisfaction knowing that you are helping some dedicated graduate students earn their degrees and hopefully improving the mobile Yelp community with a better product to review businesses with.
Where and when can I help?
We are holding the activity on Saturday, January 30th, 2010 at 1:00 PM in the Laboratory for Usability Testing and Evaluation (LUTE) on the fourth floor of Sieg Hall on the UW Seattle campus.
How do I get involved?
Well, we are looking for people who fit the following profile:
Yelp for iPhone users who use the service from 1-30 times per month
Available from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM on January 30th, 2010
That’s pretty much it! If you fit the profile and want to be a part of this study, please contact (as soon as possible):
Thanks for having a look at this and I look forward to hearing from you!
