Adaptive Mobile Applications to Dynamic Context


Context-aware computing is a mobile computing paradigm in which applications can discover and take advantage of contextual information, such as user location, time of the day, nearby people and devices, and user activity. This paper intends to study the context-awareness in depth and demonstrate the usefulness of this new technology through two mobile applications that are adaptive to dynamic context.
