Hi Lieven,

Thanks for the reply.

Yes, the design is general. Android is the place the idea is
bootstrapped. Implementation in Win8 environment should be relatively
straight forward; while in iOS, some work around may be necessary.
With my current resource, i  focused on Android implementation right

Yes it is a framework/runtime exposing APIs to allow others write
connected mobile apps (over multiple devices). It consists of three
layers: device connection, group communication and remote activity
startup. At my github site, there are some sample apps, such as Chat -
for a group of peers to chat together, and a cube-rotation OpenGL app
- for a group of peers to rotate a cube together.

Also as testing case, on top of the runtime i developed a media
sharing app for a group of devices to share media files (pic, video,
word/pdf, web links, etc) among a group of devices, which is published
at Google play (

Best regards
