Once you've installed the Hawkeye app, it's time to create your first eye tracking test!

You can either watch this quick video or read the instructions below.

1. Create a project

To create a new project, tap the plus button in the top right corner of the app. After giving it a name, chose what type of content you'd like to test.


Tap "Website" and enter the URL of the website you would like to test. 


Tap "Image" and pick an image from your Photo Library.

2. Configure session

Give your session a name and tap "Enable Screen Recording".

You'll need to enable screen recording every time you conduct a test. This helps us ensure users understand that their screens will be recorded.

3. Calibrate eye tracking

Next, it's time to calibrate! You can either hand your device to your test subject or calibrate yourself if you're just trying out the app. Get in a comfortable position and tap "Start Calibration" once you're ready to begin.

Focus your eyes on each dot shown on the screen until the progress indicator makes a full circle.

Once all dots have been completed,  look around the screen to check your calibration was successful. Try to keep your head as still as possible during the test.

4. Conduct the test

Finally, it's time to start testing your product! Tap "Start Test" to begin.

During the test, the target on the screen will mirror the user's eye movements. Touches will also be visualized.

To complete the test, tap the done button. 

5. View results

Now that you've completed a test, you can view the results.

Heat maps and focus point diagrams are created for every page the user visited during the test. Tap a page in the grid to view the results.

You can also view a screen recording of the test. This allows you to understand exactly what the user did during the test.
