The development of mobile apps during the last decade has had a significant increase just like the mobile devices themselves. However, the processes for developing those apps are still quite a few and not all of them consider the particular aspects of the mobile field. The present study proposes an integrated framework for mobile applications development based on improve that integrates the activities of the application development process with the main aspects of mobile environment, with the goal of improving the quality of the resulting applications.
