Abstract

The use of smartphones has been increasing in the last few years. Many open standards and accessible Application Programming Interfaces (API) make it easier for developers to achieve their ideas and many communities, such as xda developers, or stackoverflow provide good questions and answers concerning mobile application development. Questions on how to search for available MNOs and how to switch a Mobile Network Operator (MNO) programmatically on Android devices already arose in 2010. Until the work concluded here, an answer of those questions have not been published. The main reason is that there are no methods provided in the public Android API that allows for performing such tasks. In this work here two mechanisms allowing for (a) an automatic and ondemand MNO selection and (b) an MNO look-up mechanism have been developed for the Android platform. The efficiency of these mechanisms has been evaluated with respect to power and time consumption.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
