-This course will example ​efficient strategies to design and implement applications and services for mobile and wireless systems with a focus on mobile phone platforms. The course will start with an overview various mobile platforms that are broadly available today (iPhone, Windows Mobile, and Android). It will be followed by a broad array of topics in developing such applications and services, that include wireless communication issues, location-based services, cloud-based design, energy consumption and efficiency issues, human-computer interaction for small form factor devices, and system integration.+This course will explore ​efficient strategies to design and implement applications and services for this emerging class of mobile phone platforms. The course will start with an overview various mobile platforms that are broadly available today. It will be followed by a roughly 8-9 week period where the students will be led through a series of laboratory exercises in building simple applications. The platform of choice may vary across different semesters. Beyond this 8-9 week period, the course will foray into broad array of topics in developing such applications and services, that include wireless communication issues, location-based services, cloud-based design, energy consumption and efficiency issues, human-computer interaction for small form factor devices, and system integration.
  
-The main focus of the course will be a semester-long programming project that will be done in groups ​of 4 or more. Students will be required to quickly come up to speed with their programming platform, define a specific project objectives in detail, and showcase a full application by the end of the semester.+The main focus of the course will be a semester-long programming project that will be done in groups.

 +===== Platform for Spring 2020 ====
 +The instructional part of the course will be based on Java and Android. The teaching staff will only be able to assist students on this platform. The set of assignments provided in the first 8-9 weeks, will also be based on that platform.
 +If you are interested in other platforms, such as iOS, there is no instructional support available for it. However, you are allowed to do your main project in any platform of your choice, e.g., iOS, Android, or anything else. If you are able to do the programming assignments on such other platforms without any instructional support, that is also acceptable. But please note that for Spring 2020, no other platforms will be supported from the instructional standpoint.
