Usability test of fastStart

For the usability test, I choose Silverback, and Quicktime Player to test my subjects, but for compatibility reason between my Mac Pro and Silverback, I had some problem trying to record my subjects, and also a had some problem with external microphone when I was using Quicktime Player.

Video Test Subjects

Tasks that I used during the usability test:

  1. Launch the fastStart app and turn on the engine
  2. Unlock and lock the door
  3. Check the car status
  4. Open the car finder and use the flash lights to find your car
  5. Check the warning sign to know what is the present problem in the car

Subjects feedbacks:

  • Color change
  • To use a different flash lights icon
  • To use a back button on the screen

Most the feedback was positive, in general all my subjects liked the fastStart App, and in their opinion it can be very useful, and that will be worth use this application in the real life.
