Abstract [en]

Cloud computing and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) has grown immensely in the last couple of years. Thanks to cheap costs and ever-online mobile computers such as iOS and Android devices, services that do not need any central installation and only require web browsers and client softwares to be functional have become the norm for many users.

I wanted to emphasize “users” speciZically, because not everyone is happy with certain aspects of this brave new world. Namely corporations, who are extremely paranoid on security and would like to control every bit of their data.

As ownCloud decided to grow and become a “cloud Zile systems provider for companies”, they needed to catch up with other players, and they needed to catch up fast. While one body of resources were set to work on closing any functional gaps on the web interface, another team was working on getting mobile clients ready.

My study here is on getting mobile counterparts of ownCloud, by both protecting the familiarity to the web based client and making the apps follow their respective interaction guidelines. I have created mockups for all three major platforms (iOS, Android and Windows Phone).
