Many interactions naturally extend across smart-phones and devices with larger screens. Indeed, data might be received on the mobile but more conveniently processed with an application on a larger device, or vice versa. Such interactions require spontaneous data transfer from a source location on one screen to a target loca- tion on the other device. We introduce a cross-device Drag-and- Drop technique to facilitate these interactions involving multiple touchscreen devices, with minimal effort for the user. The technique is a two-handed gesture, where one hand is used to suitably align the mobile phone with the larger screen, while the other is used to select and drag an object between devices and choose which application should receive the data.

We present the technical framework supporting a cross-device Drag-and-Drop technique designed to facilitate interactions involving multiple touchscreen devices. This technique supports users that need to transfer information received or produced on one device to another device which might be more suited to process it. Furthermore, it does not require any additional instrumentation. The technique is a two-handed gesture where one hand is used to suitably align the mobile phone with the larger screen, while the other is used to select and drag an object from one device to the other where it can be applied directly onto a target application. We describe the implementation of the framework that enables spontaneous data-transfer between a mobile device and a desktop computer.
