AN INTEGRATED APPROACH TO DEVELOP PERVASIVE MOBILE APPLICATIONS

Abstract

This article introduces the QuickFrame, a development tool that allows mobile applications to run in several different types of mobile devices. That is only possible due to the fact that the QuickFrame possesses a standard specification language and has the capability of defining the application interface, verifying the target devices’ specifications and pre-visualizing the user interface. Therefore, several of the problems caused by the large number of mobile device models available and their different specifications are eliminated. Thru reaching to that goal we have a tool to make mobile applications more pervasive.
