A Proposed Taxonomy of Mobile Public Utility Applications

Gavina Baralla, Katiuscia Mannaro, Michele Marchesi

Abstract

During the last years, the number of applications for mobile devices have greatly increased, as well as the number of developed services. Taxonomies provide an important tool to classify and help to understand this complex domain, describing it in a simpler way. This paper presents a taxonomy of services for a new class type of mobile applications that we called Mobile Public Utility, MPU. We contribute to research by providing a first classification scheme to the scenario of MPU App usage by depicting his special nature because not only this mobile application enables citizen to have a dialog with local authorities about environment safety or security, but also it improves trust through better interaction with Public Administrations and it enhances the decision-making process by local governments.
