Advances in mobile phone technology have allowed phones to become a convenient platform for real-time assessment of a participants health and behavior. AndWellness, a per- sonal data collection system, uses mobile phones to collect and analyze data from both active, triggered user experi- ence samples and passive logging of onboard environmental sensors. The system includes an application that runs on Android based mobile phones, server software that manages deployments and acts as a central repository for data, and a dashboard front end for both participants and researchers to visualize incoming data in real-time. Our system has gone through testing by researchers in preparation for de- ployment with participants, and we describe an initial qual- itative study plus several planned future studies to demon- strate how our system can be used to better understand a user’s health related habits and observations
