Abstract:

Abstract: The purpose of this study was to assess user preference of three smartphone applications, My Net Diary, My Fitness Pal, and Lose It. Applications across different smartphone platforms were used. Specifically the study evaluated users' view regarding the app's (a) convenience, (b) satisfaction with the nutrient analysis reports, and (c) perceived behavior change. Participants (n=50) were obtained from Introductory Nutrition Classes at California State University, Long Beach and assigned an app to use for a duration of 2 weeks. After that time an email was sent including a link to the Survey Monkey questionnaire. The results, using ANOVAs, indicated no significant differences between the apps in users' view regarding (a) convenience, (b) satisfaction with the nutrient analysis reports, and (c) perceived behavior change. The insignificant results could be attributed to the fact that these apps are widely popular and cited on top 10 lists. Further study is warranted.
