Activity-centric computing and context awareness in mobile personal information managemen
MetadataShow full item record
Information and tools on modern smartphones are tightly tied to applications. It is hard to move information between applications, and it is often near impossible to collect and compare information from several sources. In this thesis I will explore how we through applying activity-centric computing and context awareness to the current generation of smartphone operating systems can advance the state of mobile personal information management. The thesis presents two prototypes, Activity Ant 1 and Activity Ant 2, showing how activity-centric computing and context awareness can be implemented from an Human-Computer Interaction perspective. User reactions and suggestions are also presented and discussed.
