Abstract – Recent advances in mobile technology, mobile networks and mobile computing offer new functionalities and applications for software systems on Mobile devices. These innovations are mainly due to the novel and cheap equipment offered by the latest generation of mobile phones, such as on- board cameras, accelerometers, compass, GPS, together with their increased processing power and fast Internet connectivity. In addition, around us there is an enormous number of instruments and sensors that need to be connected: ”the Internet of Things” . In this context, smart phones should allow the user to combine Services across multiple instruments to get smarter applications. Nevertheless, service composition is still a task for expert people since it requires the knowledge of complex standards and technologies, such as the standard executable languages WSCDL and BPEL. In addition, the development of mobile applications/services still requires the users to know specific programming languages. To compose all kinds of services, ranging from Web services and native Smartphone applications to domotic services, i.e., services to manage highly sophisticated sensors and devices to control temperature, lighting, security systems, etc. we introduced the initial idea behind the MicroApp generation approach, based on graphical composition of functionalities of the mobile device.
