Creating a Typology of Casual Creators in the Wild
Casual creators are a genre of creativity support tool that use generative systems to empower autotelic and enjoyable amateur creativity. They have been posited as a unique means of democratising creativity through the support of user exploration via system generativity, yet little is known about what casual creators are actually available to wider audiences. We conducted a qualitative analysis of currently available casual creators on the App Store. We found three categories of interaction techniques across 89 commercially available apps that qualified as casual creators, which we describe in their exploration potential, feedback speed, and user autonomy.
