Real-time collaboration might be a way of improving productivity by providing a more streamlined flow of information between peers. This talk describes how smartphones and tablets can be transformed into very useful tools for collaboration. We will discuss the technology underpinning an Android-based collaborative-editing application which might be beneficial to users in environments without internet connectivity and where the cost and the lack of a continuous power supply preclude server-based data sharing. In our application, consistency is maintained by operational transformations and judicious replication. Since edits on any device show up immediately on all other devices, conflicting edits can be resolved seamlessly. This talk will also feature general tips and advice on using the Android framework.
