12-day self reporting diary with TripView


TripView is a mobile phone application developed by TripView Pty Ltd. The application displays public transport timetable data provided by Transport NSW and enables users to plan their trips effectively. In this self-reporting diary, I wrote about my experience interacting with the TripView application for 12 days, starting from 9th August to 20th August 2018.

Diaries are typically used to capture the "little experiences of everyday life that fill most of our working time and occupy the vast majority of our conscious attention" (Wheeler & Reis, 1991). By doing a self-reporting diary, I examined the use of TripView in everyday situations. I took screenshots of the application, quickly summarised the context, and wrote a detailed journal entry at the end of the day while the information was still fresh in my mind.

The following report documented 10 experiences in great detail, together with my reflective notes.
