Abstract

Recommander systems have changed the way people shop online. Recommender systems on wireless mobile devices may have the same impact on the way people shop in stores. We present our experience with implementing a recommender system on a PDA that is occasionally connected to the network. This interface helps users of the MovieLens movie recommendation service select movies to rent, buy, or see while away from their computer. The results of a nine month field study show that although there are several challenges to overcome, mobile recommender systems have the potential to provide value to their users today.
