- [Instructor] So far, I've assumed that you…are observing typical users at a desk,…and that is true for most business apps.…But in our modern mobile age,…apps can be used anywhere.…If your app is used outdoors, or in an environment…such as a warehouse, you might need to take…temperature or dirt into account.…If the user needs to use both hands,…where do they place the device?…An outdoors worker might be wearing gloves.…Observing that kind of user takes longer…than watching users at desks.…I find an hour is usually needed…for observation in mobile environments.…
I also find I take a lot more photographs…in those user sessions to remember…the environment during later design phases.…
