This chapter shows the introduction, purpose and description, review of related literature and studies, synthesis of the study, paradigm of the study, statement of the problem, hypothesis, statement of assumption, scope and limitations, significance of the study and the definition of terms of the proposed system. Introduction

Mobile phones now a days are not just devices that are used for making calls. With the advancement of the technologies the ways mobile phones are used have changed. Mobile phones now a days can be used for various purposes. For example cameras, gaming devices, calculators, remote controls or sensors. As new technologies are being discovered day by day, tough competition is going between mobile companies to produce better phones. Those who cannot stand up to the expectations of users disappear slowly. The factor that makes mobile phones popular is the applications that allow users to do various surprising tasks. These applications have been among the important reasons for the growth of the mobile market. In the battle of operating systems for mobiles, Android has emerged as a competitor or dominator to all existing mobile companies including Nokia and Apple. So choosing Android application development as a profession in today’s competitive world seems to be secure. The Android platform, which collected 80 million euros in 2010 alone, is expected to collect 1.5 billion euros in 2015. Also the tools and environments used for application development are free and easily available from the Android developer’s site. Good sets of instructions regarding the installation and developing applications are available on the site. The goal of this project was to develop a remote desktop application allowing a user to have full control over the computer’s mouse and the keyboard in an Android platform. The Android phone in the project was the client application acting as remote control for controlling the server desktop application. The Bluetooth 4.0 technology was used for the communication between the server and the client. The applications allow a user to control a computer without getting physically involved. The scope of the project can be extended by replacing the Bluetooth with the Internet as a communication mediator. This project then can be used to access the computer from any part of the world using the phone, provided the server and the client be in the same network. Project Context

Android is one of today’s most popular terms in the world of mobile operation systems. Android phones and Android applications are so popular among people that they have established a secured position among users in the world of mobile phones. Android is the software stack for a mobile device that includes an operating system, middleware and key applications .It is a Linux based operating system. Android Inc was founded in 2003 in Palo Alto, California, the United States in October, 2003 by Andy Rubin, Rich Miner and some other workers. In 2005 August Android Inc was acquired by Google with the key employees of Android Inc moving to Google. At Google Andy Rubin and his team developed a mobile device platform based on the Linux kernel known as An-droid and was introduced in 2007 when a group of industries came together to form Open Handset Alliance. Open Handset Alliance is an association of firms to develop open standards for mobile devices. Since then thousands of Android-based phones and applications had been launched to the market and have achieved tremendous success. The first question to answer “Where to implement the proposed Android Application?” this will be to AMA Computer College Santiago Campus. AMACC is a type of College which uses many computers and almost all of its faculty and students uses android phones. For the researchers, AMACC is the basis in developing the proposed system. AMACC Students and Faculty is still using the PC’s mouse and Keyboard for...
