ProspecFit digitises the implementation intentions method, an effective lab-based memory technique, to make it available on smartphones through iterative design. The project draws insights from a focus group and preliminary studies. ProspecFit has been evaluated with 10 adults (61 to 80 years old) through in situ testing as well as pre- and post-testing. More users are being recruited to further explore its effectiveness and usability.
