Nowadays, there are many people having stress issues. Most of them do not know how to handle stress properly which may cause harm to their health condition. Moreover, they also may not notice that they are having stress until it become worsen. As we know, a calming surrounding and environment helps in soothing the emotion of a stressed person. In this project, an Android mobile application named “Intelligent Stress Relief App” will be developed to minimize the problems above. This application allows user to check their stress level based on their heart rate data through Bluetooth heart rate sensor. With the records of stress patterns, user is able to keep track of their stress condition in order to seek for better stress management.

The number of smartphone users and mobile application offerings are growing rapidly nowadays. A mobile device is currently considered as the most powerful and most needed device of this modern century. Every day new mobile applications are developed with their own compatibility, making sure to serve correctly to a particular smartphone model and its specifications. The goal of this project is to develop a self-help Android application namely “Dont Forget Me”, which is user friendly and well defined to solve the problem of misplaced or lost smartphone devices. This missing phone prevention alert application practically pairs with another device using Bluetooth connection. The Bluetooth connection is established in order to prevent the user from forgetting to bring along the device or being stolen by someone. If the Bluetooth connection between the paired devices is disconnected hence an alarm and message notification are triggered to notify the user that the device was not brought along with them. A website application is also developed purposely in serving the user to track, locate and lock the missing device.[...] Read more.

Thanks to globalization, mobile devices have become an inseparable entity of our daily life. We often expect our smart devices (mobile phone, tablet, portable media player) to possess the functionalities of a personal computer. As the technology is getting cheaper, owning multiple mobile devices, each for a specific purpose, is becoming the current trend. For instance, an Android smartphone to fulfill a user’s communication needs on-the-go, an iPad could serve the user’s reading hobby, and lastly, a laptop for productivity activities. As such, to switch among different devices could be the emerging problem of the current generation. With our proposed Android based remote control app, a user does not only able to control his Windows based office laptop, but he could access to his IOS based devices too. Besides click event and text input, this application also supports panning and zooming gesture inputs.[...] Read more.

The evolution of mobile devices, especially in these modern days, has drastically changed the face of business. A mobile phone device is often expected to offer computer-like functionality. These days, most mobile phone users find it somehow inconvenient to do some tasks using their computers. Most individuals prefer to change positions while sitting, stretching, and also feeling a bit more comfortable when browsing through their computers. It can be very impractical to be confined to the keyboard and mouse while sitting 5 or 10 feet from the computer. Hence, the proposed application is meant to turn the hand phone into a wireless keyboard and mouse with a touch-pad, through the wireless network. This prototype is proven to be able to perform most of the actions a normal computer keyboard and mouse can perform.[...] Read more.
