Thin-client computing may be a solution to such problems as providing sophisticated applications on devices with low computational power, or providing reasonable access to digital artifacts whose distribution the copyright owner still wishes to protect. However, certain application domains have tight constraints around user interface response times, and the network aspect of thin-client computing may cause issues in this regard. The authors have conducted an experiment to identify how various delays added to mobile games affect players' performance and perceptions of the gameplay.
