Mr Tappy is a kit for filming mobile phones, tablet computers and handheld
devices from the user's point of view.
Originally designed as a filming rig for iPad usability testing, Mr Tappy
lets you capture or share user interaction with mobile devices during
user experience research, product demonstrations or classroom presentations.

ipod, smart phones, ebook readers, touch screen and buttons.
Mr. Tappy is a snip to set up and use - Simply attach
your mobile device, set the camera height and angle, then sit back to
watch the interaction unfold.
Mr Tappy provides a fully adjustable and lightweight
camera rig allowing natural mobile device interaction to be captured from
the user's perspective.

on screen and the user's fingertips as they interact with the device,
He ships standard with an HD 720p webcam and a universal
camera mount for the likes of 'gopro' and other types of cameras.
He plays nicely with devices with touch screens, buttons,
keypads, gestures, multi-touch and stylus use and is a particular favourite
of iPad and smartphone app developers.

About Mr Tappy:
Mr Tappy came from humble beginnings - in fact,
he originally was made from plastic cut with a hacksaw and bent over a
household toaster. This solution worked fine as a usability filming rig
a few years back when 'a phone was a phone' …but when touch screens
and tablet devices arrived, a more flexible and stable solution was required.
With cursors and clicks screen
capture was all you needed, but with taps and no cursor, Mr Tappy has
become the tool for the job and is used in hundreds of digital design
and research departments from 'one man shops' to the very top of the tech
Through a series of prototypes and testing with some of Europe's largest
technology design and research agencies, Mr Tappy was born.
Mr Tappy was designed by Nick Bowmast, a UX
researcher helping companies develop better products and services
through customer insights. Often these products involve mobile devices
and the insights come from watching them use products.
Mr Tappy is a product developed by Bowmast.
