Abstract

The COVID-19 crisis has caused social distancing practices to be part of everyday life. We present the concept and user interface design of a smart phone application that enables planning daily schedules in a manner which seeks to optimise the social distancing. We present the application UI design and its evaluation in two focus groups (n = 8). The findings highlight the need for and positive attitude towards a mobile application that supports avoiding crowds during and after the pandemic time.
