Evaluation of Mobile Interfaces as an Optimization Problem

Abstract : Mobile applications are more and more present everywhere (at home, at work, in public places, etc.). Many academic and industrial studies are conducted about design methods and tools for mobile user interface generation. However, the evaluation of such interfaces is object of relatively few propositions and studies in the literature. The existing evaluation methods are widely based on a questionnaire, survey, eye tracking, etc. to assess mobile interface. These methods are time-consuming, error-prone task. In fact, one of the widely used methods to assess quality of MUI is using detection rules. But, the manual definition of these methods is still a difficult task. In this context, we define a method that generates evaluation rules for assessing the quality of mobile interfaces. To this end, we consider the generation of evaluation rules as a mono-objective technique problem where the goal is to find the best rules maximizing the quality of mobile interfaces. We evaluate our approach on four mobile applications. This study was designed around the android mobile devices. The obtained results confirm the efficiency of our technique with an average of more than 70% of precision and recall.
