The advent of mobile technology is indicative of an era in which society requires the transfer of information via a medium that facilitates mobility. Therefore, it is widely accepted that mobile information systems have been in use in a number of situations where access to information is required while on the move. However, deeper analysis has revealed that mobile information systems are mainly concerned with providing generic information to users without much scope for customization. This has created a need to develop what is called Personal Information Systems. It can be viewed as an empowering tool for users based on their input into the system as they can enhance the level of information supplied to them.
