Abstract

We present the PowerView application that provides a novel solution to the problem of accessing information on mobile devices. PowerView replaces the standard application suite in Windows CE with a new interface approach, where integrated information access and single-handed navigation are key features in aiding users to access information in a variety of mobile situations.
