Although the literature on Quality of Experience (QoE) has boomed over the last few years, only a limited number of studies have focused on the relation between objective technical parameters and subjective user-centric indicators of QoE. Building on an overview of the related literature, this paper introduces the use of a software monitoring tool as part of an interdisciplinary approach to QoE measurement. In the presented study, a panel of test users evaluated a mobile web-browsing application (i.e., Wapedia) on a PDA in an IEEE 802.11b/g Wireless LAN environment by rating a number of key QoE dimensions on the device immediately after usage.
