Abstract [en]

Indisputably, the area concerning mobile computing and networking is reaching its stride: convincing the developers that, in the near future, the vast majority of devices will be portable and wireless. This evolution will inevitably render current standards obsolete since only powerful servers will remain on the wired side of the Internet. Although, much progress has been made in terms of technological innovations: many of the present software solutions are difficult to use and lack accessibility, flexibility, and robustness. If you prefer, they offer a limited, and in some cases even poor, user experience. Theoretical analysis of usability joint with new innovative interaction designs can help achieve significant presentation improvements in terms of attractive and immersive interfaces: contrary to the rigid organizational structures imposed by current applications. Also by introducing Rich Internet Applications, referred to as widgets, based on established web technologies provides the ability to develop more efficient and effective applications. This relatively new kind of application has seen significant proliferation onto the desktop and more recently the web enabled portable device market. To introduce a suitable solution current platforms and user requirements are analyzed. The gathered intelligence represents the design foundation which is transformed into a conceptual model. Consequently, the shared base, design and ideology, logically implies similarities in presentation: however, the subtle differences between the suggested prototypes become more evident while discussing their emphasis and individual bearing on the final product. The results from this technique are deployed in the final solution, which is literally a direct derivative of several user interface designs. In a few words, adapting such a multidisciplinary concept, effective borrowing and user needs, suggests ways of meeting the ongoing stride by capitalizing on the target audience knowledge and available solutions.
