The smart phone offers communication, connectivity, content consumption, and content creativity. Seven different systems exemplify its ability to support a wide range of social interactions, helping make pervasive computing a reality. For smart phones to become successful pervasive system components, they must support and enhance various user activities and offer useful, effective functionality. The systems the author have built focuses on augmenting and enhancing communication; they're communication devices first and computers second. The system supports social interaction between people n particular, interaction that would be difficult if not impossible to achieve without the smart phone technology. This dependency on the system endows them with a degree of utility that drives their effectiveness, which is key to increasing the use of pervasive systems.
