Nowadays, smartphones have almost replaced basic feature phones all over the world. Today's smartphones come equipped with an increasing set of embedded sensors, computational and communication resources. All these gave developers the ability to design and implement a wide variety of applications in the domains of healthcare, social networking, safety, environmental monitoring and transportation. This paper presents a novel middleware platform, called Feel the World (FTW) which provides third party programmers, with little phone programming experience, the ability to develop applications that enable people to sense, visualize and share information about the world they live in. © 2013 Springer-Verlag.
