Summary

This is the download site for HCI experiment software written by Scott MacKenzie. The following are common features for all the software:


Details

Each ZIP file contains a directory structure of files suitable for importing into either Eclipse (Windows apps) or Studio (Android apps).

For the Windows apps, a JAR file is also provided.  If you just want to run an experiment app, you don't need the ZIP file.  Just download the JAR file.  Launch the JAR file, for example, by double-clicking on it from Windows Explorer.  Data files are saved in the same directory as the app.

For the Android apps, an APK file is also provided.  If you just want to run an experiment app, you don't need the ZIP file.  Just click on the APK link from a browser on your Android device.  Follow the prompts to download and install the app.  The app file is named app-debug.apk, as per a typical "build" in Android Studio.  You'll need to give permission for the app to read and modify the contents of USB storage.  This is required because the app creates files holding user performance data.  Data files are saved in a directory bearing the app's name with "Data" appended.  The directory is a sub-directory within the usual "public storage directory" for Android apps.  Consult each app's API for specific details on the data file(s) created.

Feel free to use or modify the apps in whatever way suits your purpose.

If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, please get in touch.

Happy experimenting,
