The PhoneStudy Project
Online shopping, tracking athletic performance, communicating with friends?
Not without my smartphone!
Smartphone have become our daily companion in a wide variety of situations, and in each one, we produce digital footprints that provide information about ourselves. This everyday data reflects our everyday experience and behavior, which is why we want to use this data for research. Working closely together, we, the interdisciplinary PhoneStudy team, contribute to research using state-of-the-art smartphone tracking methods and the highest privacy and transparency standards. With our PhoneStudy research app, we integrate research into everyday life and thus establish the smartphone as a mobile and privacy-friendly research laboratory.
From time to time, we conduct subject studies using our PhoneStudy research app to collect smartphone data. Help us out by participating in our studies yourself!
