Currently, the development of mobile applications heavily relies on using conventional computers as development platform. MobiDev enables people in emerging countries without access to a computer but to a cell phone to develop their own locally relevant applications. The goal of the Mo-biDev project is to simplify development and deployment of applications directly on mobile phones. As a first step, we focus on the design of applications and try to support the computer science curriculum in developing countries to bootstrap the mobile developer culture and community. MobiDev allows the creation of graphical user interfaces (GUI) using various concepts. We present the results of a first system evaluation that show how people perceive the concepts for UI creation of MobiDev.
