Over the past few years mobile phones have evolved into attractive platforms for novel types of applications. However, compared to the design and prototyping of desktop software, mobile phone development still requires programmers to have a high level of expertise in both phone architectures and their low-level programming languages. In this paper the authors analyze common difficulties in mobile phone programming and present SPARK, a publicly available rapid prototyping platform that allows programmers without prior mobile programming experience to create advanced mobile phone applications in a fast and easy way.
