A C++ App for Demonstration of Sorting Algorithms on Mobile Platforms

Robert Meolic, Tomaž Dogša


This paper presents a systematic approach for designing a C++ app for demonstrating sorting algorithms on smartphones and tablets. It is part of an on-going project on the usages of new technologies in education. The general properties of mobile platforms are discussed together with details specific to demonstrating sorting algorithms. The implementation of Insertion Sort is given as an example. The obtained results (e.g. design rules and algorithms) have been tested within a prototype application.
