The use of mobile devices with possible connection to the Internet is increasing tremendously. This mobility poses new challenges at various levels, including hardware, network services, and the development of applications. The user searches small and lightweight devices, easy to use, and with vast autonomy in terms of energy. She/He seeks also to connect the Internet “every time, everywhere”, possibly using different access technologies. Given the interface limitations, and processing capabilities of small mobile devices, the software and the operating system used must be necessarily adapted. This chapter overviews the mobility area, provides deep insight in the field, and presents the main existing problems. Mobility and the development of mobile applications are closed related. The advances in network mobility lead to different approaches in the mobile applications development. The chapter proposes a model for developing mobile applications, based on our research.
