Currently much research effort is done in the area of mobile computing, emphasizing infrastructure issues on both hardware and software. The advances in mobile technology allows to look for possible applications. We claim that asynchronous CSCW applications are especially suitable to run on such mobile equipment. In particular, we emphasize activity coordination in distributed work environments. After a description of our task manager implementation running over wide area networks, we discuss in detail the extensions that are needed to run a mobile task manager. We focus an a user driven data caching scheme, and we suggest to use both replicates and copies of data objects
