Awareness and Usage of Smartphone Applications for Information Sharing Tasks among the Research Scholars of Periyar Universityan Analytical Study


Thenmozhi, G., Gomath, Dr P., Library Philosophy and Practice


INTRODUCTION

A smartphone is a cellular telephone with an integrated computer and other features not originally associated with telephones, such as an operating system, Web browsing and the ability to run software applications. The first smartphone was IBM's Simon, which was presented as a concept device (rather than a consumer device) at the 1992 COMDEX computer industry trade show. Smartphone apps are defined as software applications that run on a mobile phone (encyclopedia2.The free dictionary.com), They may include games, diaries, planners, maps and more.

About the Periyar University

The Government of Tamilnadu established the Periyar University Salem on 17th as per the provisions of the Periyar University Act, 1997. The University is named after the Great Social Reformer E.V. Ramasamy, affectionally called "Thanthai Periyar". The University has taken the significant step of promoting interdisciplinary study and research. The department has been clustered into schools and departments.

REVIEW OF THE RELATED LITERATURE

Hee Seo Lee1 et.al (2012) in this study, to analyze the factors affecting the use of Smartphone applications, research model based on UTAUT (Unified Theory of Acceptance) model was hypothesized and empirically tested. Credibility and personalization were set as factors affecting performance expectancy, and flow was added as an antecedent of usage intention. A survey was conducted with 215 persons who have experience in using Smartphone including college students and office workers. Therefore, it is expected that research findings would provide strategic implications for app developers, mobile telecom providers, and related enterprises.

Walter UVS, et.al (2013) this study assesses the use of smartphone applications and specifically social networking applications (SNS) amongst smartphone users, due to the perceived high-level of usage amongst University Students. The data were analyzed looking at key applications and frequency/intensity of usage. These students appear to use SMS for close friends only, and phone calls to loved ones and family; possibly due to the high cost of SMS' and phone calls in South Africa compared to the low cost of SNS.

Saif Ahmed et.al (2015) this study deals on Mobile Applications (apps) is software developed for use on mobile devices and made available through app stores. Mobile apps have developed into a significant industry and apps stores have become highly competitive places. This research reports the first research done on the behavior of Bangladeshi mobile users and seeks to understand their preferences regarding all things related to mobile applications. Users were asked questions regarding the monetary potential of apps, about how their choices are determined in terms of downloading mobile apps as well as their mobile internet usage.

Simon L Jones et.al (2015) in this study, to analyze the Smartphones uses to investigate the question: do smartphones induce usage habits? We analyzed three months of application launch logs from 165 users in naturalistic settings. This study analyzes the distinct clusters of applications and users, which share similar revalidation patterns. On the other hand, on a micro-level, we identify unique characteristics in smartphone usage, and we present a rudimentary model that accounts for 92% in the variability of our smartphone use.
