Ruby: A Personal Information Management System for Mobile Environment


Abstract:
In order to satisfy the request of naturality and efficiency of managing unstructured personal information in mobile environment, we present a mobile-based personal information management (PIM) system called-Ruby. First, we analyze users demand for a typical mobile PIM system and describe the architecture of the system. Then we introduce its interface and interaction process, and present two searching key supporting techniques: unstructured note taking and inktag based searching. Finally, our evaluation shows that the system is well accepted by the users.

Key words:personal information management,mobile computing,Post-WIMP,informal note taking,ink tag search
