Above showsthat the next generation of mobile applications for MOPs need to be part of a much large mobile information system. Such system should be capable of receiving information from a large number of users, intelligently aggregating the information to useful, meaningful, real-time information and making them available to users. Users should be able to make queries and quickly find information that would enhance their day to day activities. It should also have the functionalities to detect different and unusual situations, provide alerts to users in unusual circumstances and emergencies so that users can respond accordingly. These next generation mobile applications for MOPs will open up a very large market currently estimated to be around 3 billion people [13]. These applications will empower them to be information users as well as information producers. Such applications would result in up lifting of economic conditions of the MOPs and transformation of social processes.
