Initial User Experience Testing for Mobile Augmented Reality App

Today we tested the current version of the app with some of the volunteers from Live at LICA to ascertain how usable and understandable it was. The test was successful in that we got useful suggestions for improvements to guide users understanding on first use but everyone found that once they understood the basics it was simple to use in a very short period of time. Along with very useful suggestions for future features we were also observed the power of this approach in allowing users to inspect the image very closely as our volunteers were able to identify a thumbprint one of the photographs which was not easily identifiable on the physical image.
