Abstract: In this paper the authors present the RealityGrid PDA and Smartphone Clients: two novel and highly effective handheld user interface applications, which have been created purposefully to deliver (as a convenience tool) flexible and readily available ‘around the clock’ user access to scientific applications running on the Grid. A discussion is provided detailing the individual user interaction capabilities of these two handheld Clients, which include real-time computational steering and interactive 3D visualisation. The authors also identify, along with several lessons learned through the development of these Clients, how such seemingly advanced user-oriented e-Science facilities (in particular interactive visualisation) have been efficiently engineered irrespective of the targeted thin-device deployment platform’s inherent hardware (and software) limitations.
