Usability tests play an important role in any kind of software, as they limit errors and misunderstandings. Especially in the growing market of medical applications it is indispensable, but time-consuming and expensive. In or-der to improve the quality of medical applications and remove obstacles for developers, a method has been developed that simplifies testing the usability of mobile medical applications and provides additional data on compliance and effectiveness. Because this test method is remote-controlled and asynchronous, finding examiners is simplified. It also allows more subjects to be found and more data to be collected. This increases user experience and achieves more natural results as study participants act in their natural environment. In order to decide whether the app developed is suitable for this remote testing method, a questionnaire was developed to assist in the decision-making process. The described method will be tested in a study.
