Abstract

In this paper we study how smartphones can benefit from the resources available in clouds. Unfortunately, integrating smartphones with cloud resources is challenging and comes with dangers for the user in terms of loss of control of applications and data as portions move into the cloud. In this paper we outline our work on the Interdroid project, where we are building a framework for smart applications for smartphones which includes components for integration with the cloud.
