The thesis investigates the possibility to enrich standard mobile phone calls with cooperative web applications. Originating from the research field known as Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) this thesis report introduces and describes the implementation of several applications which can be used by the calling parties together during a phone call.
Additionally, the report describes a proof-of-concept prototype for the Android platform, and discusses the performance of cooperative web application running on mobile devices in terms of network and CPU use.
The conclusions of the thesis describe a prototype application addressing and implementing the requirements as described by the theory of computer supported collaborated work. The performance of the running application showed to be satisfactory, both regarding to network demand and processor use.
