Abstract: Mobile applications (apps) have become ubiquitous in our daily lives. This research is focused on users' perceptions of mobile apps' usefulness and the influence they have on user satisfaction and intentions toward these mobile apps. The data was collected via a questionnaire, with 121 responses, by students enrolled in business courses at a medium-sized university in the USA. Using structural equation modelling, self-efficacy of mobile apps and two of the three perceived usefulness measures significantly influenced satisfaction. Mobile app use also facilitated information seeking and social relationships to influence perception of satisfaction with these apps. A discussion of these results and conclusions are also provided.
Keywords: perceived usefulness; behavioural intentions; user satisfaction; satisfaction with mobile apps.
