I am currently working on a proof of concept and I would like to be able to identify users without the need for the user to generate account and such. The proof of concept consists of a console installation where the user inputs POIs and then the user can refer a personalized leaflet/guide based on his earlier entered data on his mobile device. Now I would like to identify the user in some manner when he uses his mobile device (currently iPhone atm).
Are there any best practices if you want to do such things? I am currently thinking about generating some unique number or user-chosen word. The flow Ihad in mind was like:
- Calculate personalized news based user-entered POIs - Display the unique code and instructions (animations) to download the iPhone app - Keep displaying until the code has been used - or timeout back to the start state of the console after n seconds/minutes.
What would you think of such solution? Any good for the phone/mobile device confident persons?
Thanks in advance, and looking forward to hear from you,
