traced to the inability of the tech products to meet the needs and desire of the users, for whom
the products are provided. And specifically, the Malaysia government has been recording
same users neglect on information technological infrastructure provided despite huge amount
of money invested on the ICT project, most especially for the rural dwellers. The major
reason of this users’ unacceptability have been traced to lack of proactive users’ requirements
gathering as expected to be part of the product development process. To address this in the
intending development of mobile application for fishermen; who are also members of the
target group to be provided mobile technologies by the Malaysian government; this study
aims to validate the functional requirements of mobile applications for fishermen using a
Qualitative-biased users’ participatory design methodology which included a prototype
development process. The result of the study shows that ability to get weather updates, real
