    • "Another way to reduce perceived latency is by using rich client hybrid architecture [14], where the client can cache results locally. This architecture also allows some degree of off-line operations through the use of modern web technologies like Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (AJAX) [15]. Yet, using client-side cache to reduce latency perceived by the user is ideally suitable for non-mobile settings due to its poor usability issues and excessive power consumption [16]- [19]. "

    ABSTRACT: Implementations of mobile games have become prevalent industrial technology due to the ubiquitous nature of mobile devices. However, simultaneous-movement multiplayer games, games that a player competes simultaneously with other players, are usually affected by such parameters as latency, type of game architecture and type of communication technology. This paper makes a review of the above parameters, considering the pros and cons of the various techniques used in addressing each parameter. It then goes ahead to propose an enhanced mechanism for dealing with packet delays based on partitioning the game background into grids. The proposed design is implemented and tested using Bluetooth and Wi-Fi communication technologies. The efficiency and effectiveness of the design are also analyzed.

    ABSTRACT: As the capabilities of mobile phones increase, so does the demand for mobile business data. Users may now wish to access backend services on the go, with a mobile phone rather than a laptop. But even as mobile technologies have grown by leaps and bounds in recent years, mobile phones are still under intrinsic hardware constraints, and more importantly, the environment in which a mobile phone is used is completely different from that of a traditional PC/laptop client. This obliges us to come up with a new approach in providing backend service accesses from mobile phones. This paper proposes, and illustrates the use of, a task-centric tool (Mo-Taskit) that is lightweight, agile, tailorable to the user's needs and secure. Central to our approach is the middleware, which adapts backend services to mobile capacity by providing simplified versions of the services. The tool fulfills the goal of providing a lightweight and customizable solution by a) mitigating the responsibilities of the mobile user, b) handling backend service calls in an asynchronous fashion to alleviate the dependence on a network connection that can be intermittent, c) employing service functions in the form of user-defined sequences as means for users to interact with the backend, and d) guaranteeing security.

    ABSTRACT: Current enterprise application mobility approaches tend to extend desktop paradigms to the mobile space. We believe that enterprise application mobility needs to evolve to a mobile-oriented business computing paradigm, where business functions and relevant collaboration options are made available to a large number of mobile users in the most appropriate manner. In this paradigm, users get just enough information and resources needed to make a business decision and execute it in a simple and secure manner. We present a service-oriented framework that allows mobile applications to easily interface with enterprise backends, and be lightweight and flexible through in-built context awareness and a Web 2.0 front-end. It allows interleaved execution of local, ambient and remote services; and provides both users and enterprises the ability to create, provision and execute lightweight dynamic applications. At the same time, the framework allows enterprises to control services and data users access through their devices.
