Advances and Applications in Mobile Computing offers guidelines on how mobile software services can be used in order to simplify the mobile users' life. The main contribution of this book is enhancing mobile software application development stages as analysis, design, development and test. Also, recent mobile network technologies such as algorithms, decreasing energy consumption in mobile network, and fault tolerance in distributed mobile computing are the main concern of the first section. In the mobile software life cycle section, the chapter on human computer interaction discusses mobile device handset design strategies, following the chapters on mobile application testing strategies. The last section, mobile applications as service, covers different mobile solutions and different application sectors.
Nowadays, mobile communication services are penetrating into our society at an explosive growth rate. Applications in mobile devices offer limitations, restriction, and guidelines on how mobile software can be used in order to simplify the mobile usage. As smart phones and tablets are becoming the daily computing device of choice for young ages, it is expected that mobile applications and services should be as flexible, high quality, and secure as the desktop systems. In this book, latest trends in mobile computing will be discussed. In the first section, cloud computing topics will be discussed widely into four chapters to give information to the reader about topics such as challenges, services, edge computing, and distributed clouds needed to integrate this promising issue into the next generation.
