Despite the high level of interest in cross-device interaction, only few fully functional example applications exist. With XD-Bike, we built one of our own to not only showcase the use of our cross-device framework but also gather insights into the development process. XD-Bike is an application for mountain bikers that is built with web technologies and adapts to the set of devices at hand. The user interface is distributed across all available devices taking into account the space requirements of the UI elements, their importance, and the available space on devices. While using the cross-device framework eased the development process, we found the testing and debugging challenging due to the distributed nature of the application and the large set of possible device combinations.
