Projekte sind ein essenzieller Bestandteil des Curriculums von Mobile Computing. Die Studierenden bekommen die Möglichkeit, das im Zuge ihres Studiums erworbene theoretische Wissen selbst praktisch umzusetzen. Ein sowohl für StudentInnen als auch für Lehrende immer wieder spannendes Unterrichtskonzept, in dem schon erfolgreiche Startups wie z.B. runtastic und Butleroy ihre Anfänge gefunden haben.

The project PrivateNotes aims at delivering an easy-to-use but very secure note-taking experience for desktop and mobile uses. It is a solution that covers a notes-server and different client applications. The main addition since the last semester project are the sharing capabilities, which allows multiple users to work on the same note and synchronize only this note with each other while keeping the other notes private. Even the shared notes are encrypted in a way that they are only accessible by the share-partners.


The idea behind PrivateNotes is bringing together the simplicity of a note-taking application with security concepts. In a first step, the goal is to extend an already established notes application like Tomboy and extend it with security mechanisms. In particular, the aim is to find a way to store/share notes on a central server. This way other instances of the application are able to access them. The key feature is to prevent the risks of the notes’ contents to be exposed to other people.
