guidelines, usability, educational mobile apps


The increasing demand for educational applications has led to a competitive market for mobile devices, resulting in an increased supply of these products. This situation has raised concerns regarding the appropriateness of these applications in terms of usability and educational features. In light of this, the objective of this research was to analyze and contribute to the development of mobile applications targeting preschool-age children. The snowballing technique was employed, along with a questionnaire directed at parents and guardians of children who use mobile applications. Through this research, inadequacies in terms of usability and pedagogical requirements were identified. Based on these findings, a set of usability guidelines was developed with the aim of improving the development of future mobile applications.
