Abstract [en]

Gamification is the use of game design elements in non-gamecontexts. In this article the context is non-game applications developedfor Android 4.2, Jelly Bean, and the aim is to identify possible advan-tages and disadvantages with this approach. Six game design elementsthat derive from psychological motivational needs are identified and ex-plained. These game design elements are compared with Android’s designprinciples to determine whether the game design elements are applicableon Android applications or not. The result shows that it is possible todevelop gamified Android applications without infringing the Androiddesign principles, even if not all game design elements clearly correlatewith the Android design principles.
