time coverage+6 weeks of use
The study aimed to investigate the long term impact of experiences in user engagement of a food reporting mobile game app. The study recruited 10 participants, with 8 being able to complete the study. The period consider at least 6 weeks of continuous use of the DigestInn application. A one year licence of the DigestInn mobile app was given for free to each participant. A mixed dataset was collected: Daily mood reporting: Experience Sampling Method  was used to sample daily participants' mood towards their experience using the application. Whatsapp  and the visual Pick-A-Mood tool  were used to prompt participants daily. Weekly user engagement reporting: a user engagement scale was used and adjusted for this purpose . The survey was implemented in TypeForm . The prompt/reminder was done through whatsapp via a visual summary of the mood reporting, based on Daily reconstruction method  6 weeks interviews: individual interviews were conducted in person and via Skype. Focus group were conducted in the establishment of Arhnem-Nijmegen Applied Science University. In all cases visual prompts of food and mood reports were presented as probes  Raw data was processed for analysis. Coded transcripts: two students assistant and a code manager processed the transcripts using the software Atlas.ti  version 8.4.4. A coding scheme was initially developed, code manager trained the student assistant till a higher than .9 interrelated coder was achieved  Parsed json files: a json file containing the complete dataset of the complete study period was parsed to extract each participants food reports during. First the file was split in 8 files (one for each participant). A python program and a bash script were developed in Mac OSX to parse the json files into .csv files. In excel, .csv files were parsed by means of two Visual Basic macros to obtain a tabular view of the food reports per participant.  Larson, R., & Csikszentmihalyi, M. (2014).
