Abstract

While users often have goals related to developing better habits (e.g., eating more healthy food, exercising more frequently), they are typically not very effective at achieving those goals. We have been developing a toolkit that provides hardware and software for users who have no programming experience to easily invent and test context-aware applications that can help them make changes in their behaviors. We have found that this toolkit needs to balance simplicity of interaction with the facilitation of a wide range of user experiences. To address this issue, we identified key temporal rule patterns from a usergenerated collection of behavior change applications, and created programming elements with which users can compose applications of those patterns.
