We report on our efforts to collect behavioral data based on activities recorded by phones. We recruited Android device owners and offered entry into a raffle for participants. Our application was distributed from the Android Market, and its placement there unexpectedly helped us find participants from casual users browsing for free applications. We collected data from 267 total participants who gave us varying amounts of data.
