Recent growth in computing devices from the smartphone to the desktop computer has led to users interacting with multiple computing devices throughout the course of the day. Modern computing sessions are a graphically rich, multi-tasking experience, representing a considerable amount of state. There is seldom the ability to automatically move a session from one device to another; instead users must manually restore applications to their previous state. Without session mobility, the problems of unsynchronised information and communication barriers become apparent. We present a thin client approach to supporting session mobility across a broad range of devices. We use an adaptive approach, thereby supporting a fine granularity of devices. Furthermore, our approach enables rich diverse sessions composed of applications specific to a range of platforms, reducing constraints imposed by mobile devices, and boosting productivity by allowing access to a wider range of applications from a single device.
