      Abstract

      Our everyday life is surrounded by pervasive services. While on the run we should be able to use the mobile devices we carry to interact with these services. Yet, a number of studies have shown that it is difficult for users to identify available services in an unknown context. RelateGateways extends the desktop of a mobile device with a new kind of widget: the gateways, arranged around the edge of the screen, pointing towards the co-located services. Identified services can be consumed in a consistent manner by dragging-and-dropping an object on the gateway.
