The goal of this qualitative study was to understand the utility and usability of the app among a larger community sample of older adults living independently. Two smaller pilot studies were conducted in 2013 with samples of adults aged 55 and older living in Kitchener and Toronto. Feedback collected from the participants through SurveyMonkey spoke to the ease of the app, the mood tracker, and the ability to exercise “anywhere, anytime.” The later was a key finding as 68% stated they did not belong to an organized exercise program nor were interested in joining one.
