Abstract

In this paper, we describe our contribution to the question about how to provide added-value to mobile people through novel mobile applications. The experienced advantages and drawbacks of various approaches, we applied to identify the information needs of mobile people, are presented. These approaches are scenario development, field studies, and building prototypes. As a result of these investigations, we discuss a potential domain for novel mobile applications: supporting communities in the wild.
