Web applications - New mobile service paradigm
MetadataShow full item record
The explosion of mobile applications both in number and variety raises the need of shedding light on their architecture, composition and quality. Indeed, it is crucial to understand which mobile application paradigm fits better to what type of application and usage. Such understanding has direct consequences on the user experience, the development cost and sale revenues of mobile apps. In this thesis, we identify four main mobile application paradigms and evaluate them from the viewpoints of developers, users and service providers. To ensure objectivity and accuracy we start by defining high level criteria and then breaking down into finer-grained criteria. After a theoretical evaluation an implementation was carried out as a practical verification to ensure that the method adopted in analysis and evaluation is trusted and applicable. The selected application is object recognition app, which is both exciting and challenging to develop.
