Present day mobile applications are becoming increasingly pervasive and complex, involving sophisticated user interfaces and touchscreen-based interaction designs. Their overall acceptance is highly dependent on usability, hence there exists a strong need to make related usability issues an integral part of the mobile software development. In this paper we propose a touchscreen meta-testing model, a set of individual test cases which represents what we believe to be the basic aspects of
more &raquo; ... y, common to all touchscreen applications. The main goal of the meta-test is to provide relevant feedback on elementary mobile touchscreen interaction, and to use obtained results as important parameters and usability guidelines within the mobile software development process. Along with universal usability support for touchscreen mobile applications in general, this experimental framework can provide some additional benefits, related to different possible ways of both applying meta-test model and using its final outcomes.
