This paper presents a mobile context-aware tourist guide application created with the IVO platform. IVO (Integrated Virtual Operator) enables end-users to quickly build and deploy context-aware applications without the need to write any programming code, and using smartphones as the ubiquitous interaction device. Aiming at exploring the use of the IVO platform to build mobile leisure and entertainment applications, the developed application makes use of most features available in IVO. Using only the tools provided by the platform, IVO Builder and IVO Outlook, users can define temporal and spatial conditions and associate them with workflows of available activities. The paper also presents the user studies performed to evaluate the application’s usefulness and usability.
