In the future, application mobility can play a crucial role and prove to be an enabler for next generation distributed applications. Application mobility lets an application follow the users while they roam between networks using several devices. In order to achieve seamless application mobility, several issues need to be considered such as device heterogeneity, GUI-adaptation and application loss. Thus, in this paper our contributions are two-fold. Firstly, we present our novel architecture called the Application Mobility Manager (A2M) which provides seamless application mobility. The proposed architecture is context-aware and decentralized. Finally, we present a novel application called the Mobile YouTube Player which is capable of moving between heterogeneous devices and provide users with seamless video experience. We validate the proposed system through rigorous experimentation and user studies based on the real-world test bed and prototype implementation. The results clearly validate that the proposed system can support seamless application mobility.
