Smartphones have become an increasingly popular and indispensable personal device – also for medical doctors. Ten medical doctors were asked to look up five medical terms, and empirical data were collected during three tests, a thinkaloud-session and interviews. The purpose of the empirical survey was to analyze the characteristics of the mobile user situation. On the basis of the data it is argued that modern dictionary app development should be based on a calibration between the nature of the mobile user situation, the mobile user, the mobile access methods, the information task, the nature and limitations of the mobile data and the information need of the user.
