This paper presents a context-aware mobile shopping recommender system. A critique-based baseline recommender system is enhanced by the integration of context conditions like weather, time, temperature and the user's company.

A nearest neighbor algorithm, using the concept of an average selection context, calculates how contextually relevant a recommendation is. Out of 20 clothing items from the

The resulting context-aware recommender system is evaluated in a user study with 100 test participants. The answers of the user study show, that the recommendations were perceived as being better than the recommendations of a non-context aware recommender system.
