Insight into performance improvement in action: Inspiration from mobile apps

Authors


Abstract

Mobile apps are a potentially powerful medium for performance technologists. In this piece we analyze four selected apps-Coach's Eye, for amateur athletes; EpicMix, for skiers; Cloth, a wardrobe manager; and FLPR, a home-theatre management tool-to show the connection between app design and performance support. With user ratings and anecdotal feedback built into the review of the apps, training professionals have a front-row seat on this expanding arena of problem-solving products.
